Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus R-S3

This tire is amazing...I have had two sets now on my Mazda Miata and have been extremely pleased with their performance. For daily driving, they are great. For autocross, they are just amazing! The dry grip is the best I have experienced in a street tire, and the wet grip to me is still pretty good. Wear has been very good for this type of tire, particularly...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110

I LOVED theses tires. These tires do amazing in wet weather. I loved them because I didn't have much road nice from them and I thought it was a fairly comfortable ride. The problem is the tread life kinda ----s. It's decent for a performance tire, but I think it could have been better. They're pretty much done after about 20,000 miles. I did get a bubble in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110

I currently have these tires on a 2004 BMW 330Ci. There were a lot of bad reviews on here about these tires but I decided to buy them anyway because of the much lower price and the $80 rebate offered. I owned a pair of Hankook Ventus RS2 about 5 years ago and those tires were the best (200 tread wear). The cornered compared to the Micheline Pilot Sport 2 for...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus R-S3

I was looking for a tire that I could drive to the track for DE's and still felt it performed well as I really didn't want to either tow my car or haul an extra set of tires. These Hankook's really perform admirably on the track and have a lot of grip for a street tire. It took me awhile to fully understand their best operating temperature but its sweet spot...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Optimo H727

These tires ar wearing very good and I would say some what better than the michelins that they replaced. My main complaint is the sidewalls are to soft. The vehicle does not handle as well as it did with the previous set of michelin tires.Hankook makes a good tire that could be made much better by increasing sidewall strength which would make it equal to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

I confesses that I seldom write reviews, though I benefit from them, but these tires are so good, I have to do this. If you have read all the other reviews, as I did, you know there is general agreement on certain qualities, but a few complaints. The key fact in this is SOFT SIDEWALLS, which in turn affects all other properties. I plan to briefly confirm...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

I obviously haven't had these on the car very long, but so far I am VERY pleased/impressed. Coming from cheap/crappy Sumitomos, these are a marked improvement. Handling is superb, rides very nice/quiet, haven't had a chance to really push them in the wet yet, but dry traction/handling is really quite good. I'll never drive the C43 like a race car, or my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

I own a 2013 Mustang V-6 I opted to get a larger set of tires as to get better traction in the snow and rain in Philadelphia, Pa. I was hesitant to get these tires as I'm a very aggressive driver and pull very sharp turns. I relied on the Pirelli P Zero Nero Tires which were great but the ride was harsh in the many potholes in Philadelphia. I drive 37600...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Optimo H727

Hankook Optimo H727 tires only lasted 22,672 miles and about a year and a half. Noticed right away that the Optimos felt like driving on marbles. I replaced them with Michelin Defenders and the Michelins seemed to have a much better grasp of the road, and felt more secure.May 9, 2012 I purchased 4 Hankook Optimo H727 Tires from Tire Rack. These tires are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110

Great wet and dry traction, however you get what you pay for with this tire, it is loud and if not balanced perfectly they vibrate like crazy! I had the tires/wheels spin balanced multiple times and had a 4 wheel thrust alignment as my car is AWD and they still vibrate. Save yourself the time, money and aggravation and buy a different tire.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110

Great performance and even tire wear. I got over 40,000 on this tire. Better than Goodyear (OEM), Bridgestone, Dunlop costing more. For the dollar, this Hankook is the best overall value   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110

After 14k miles with lots of spirited driving and about 80 1/4 mile passes at the drag strip I am now having to replace the rears. The fronts are still around 6-7 32nds. These tires have been amazing - driving through all but the heaviest downpours with no issues, cutting 1.8x 60' times at the track on stock suspension, and giving a very comfortable ride for...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ProContact TX

I have a 2015 Hyundai Genesis 5.0. It came with Hankook tires as original equipment. Hyundai suggested that Genesis owners switch to these Continental tires. These tires have transformed the car. It already rode well. Now, it is even smoother. Bump absorption is greatly increased. Yet, handling is the same, which is very good. So, is steering feel. These...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

I have never written a review on tires before but felt that these certainly deserve it! My Goodyear RS-A's were down to the wear bars at 30k miles, I wanted something that would give me slightly better ride and since I live in the Midwest some traction in snow. I loved the performance of the RS-A's but truth be told the ride of the Infiniti leaves a little...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

I needed a set of tires in a pinch and ended up going with these. I had no prior experience with Hankook, so I had no idea what to expect. I need a good all season tire that can get me through a couple inches of snow, as well as summertime rain storms, and I wanted something that will wear well. We've had two snow storms since the tires were mounted and I've...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

These are the third set of tires to be on my 370z, and better than the OEM RE050A's and way better than the horrible Hankook V12's. I went up to 285mm from the 275mm OEM spec. These are noticeably gripper than the RE050A's, almost too grippy, as I had to take time to get used to them for drifting. They surpass the RE050A's in every category, as well as being...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

I purchased a set of these tires in hopes of a cross over tire that could handle daily driving and track use. In short: amazing tires! These are some of the most precise and predictable tires I have used, which makes them perfect for spirited driving on curvy canyon roads and occasional ventures to the track. I live in southern California and don't get much...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN S.4.

This is the best tire I've ever used. I have switch to this tires from Hankook ventus cause I've skidded twice on a wet road. After that I've never experience any kind od skid. Truly the traction and responsiveness in wet and dry road is excellent. I already have 50.000 miles on this tire for 5 years and still got 20% on my tire. Definitely I'll stick to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LE Sport

I purchased a set of these tires for my '88 Toyota Supra in staggered sizes: 235/45R17 Front, 255/40R17 Rear My car is summer only, and used as a fun car and not a daily driver. I wanted a set of performance tires that weren't so expensive that I would feel bad doing a track day, auto-x, or a smoky burnout. These tires fill that gap quite well.There's no...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

I was lucky that the new Michelin Premier LTX tires came out in June in for my 2012 Ford Explorer. This is the 3rd set of tires I have put on my car which currently is at 99,500 miles. The first set of Hankook Optimo tires were horribly unsafe and I took them off at 35,000 miles. The next set of Michelin Latitude Tour tires lasted until 98,750 miles but...  Read More
