Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus R-S3 (Version 2)

I noticed a huge traction improvement immediately after having these RS3's installed. The tread is soft and grips right off the line and does not take long to warm these tires up. Where I use to spin in 1st gear and spin going into 2nd, I now have traction off the line and a slight chirp into 2nd and I'm gone. For the street racer/daily driver that wants the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Dynapro HT RH12

The Hancook HT RH12 is the first of three sets that I have had on three different SUV's that I have in my family. I have found that these tires are a well rounded tire for my driving habits which include 50% city/50% highway in both summer and the winter conditions of Minnesota. I can honestly say that the strength of the tire lies mostly in dry driving...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

I put about 70 miles a day driving between the suburbs and the city and these tires have been great so far - and they look so good on the car! This car came originally with Pirelli's (still have the spare) and over the life of the car I have used various other brands such as Goodyear (were fine) and Hankook (not so good). I really wanted to go back as close...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

Recently replaced the Goodyear Eagle RSA's that came from the factory with these Hankooks. HUGE Improvement! Very impressed with them over the first approx 1000 miles that they have been on the vehicle. Quieter than the Goodyears, just as smooth as the Goodyears, and much better traction (both dry and wet, no experience with snow yet). Was a bit worried...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

This is proving to be a great tire. Drove in a blinding rainstorm at 70 mph with no hydroplaning. Road noise is almost non-existent and ride is excellent. For the price you can't beat this tire. It is as good, if not better, than any tire I have owned and this includes Michelin, Yokohama, Pirelli and Continental. I don't plan to drive this car in snow but...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110

When first installed were a bit squirrely at Interstate speeds, disappeared in a few hundred miles. In very cold weather and after sitting for days, need a short distance to warm up and smooth out. Very solid ride and stick really well. Difficult to cite any harshness directly attributable to the tires and not characteristic of the car. These are great tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus R-S3

I use these tires for track day events only and they have been great. Although not the stickiest tire out there, they are pretty darn good. The price point, and good wear qualities makes them a great choice for tearing up the track with out emptying your pocket book.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus AS RH07

I purchased these tires because the reviews on the most of the other options were poor. The tires have so far been a very good. The ride is soft and comfortable with very little noise. The wear rate has been good so far. The dealer just rotated them and reported no problems other then some very minor side wall issues. I think he was more interested in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

Wow. Fantastic. Expectations met and then some. I upgrade from Hankook Ventus V12's and even though these tires are in the same class, the PSS is a revelation. The PSS were a little noisier than I thought they'd be when I first got them, but the noise is of a different quality, lower frequency but not boomy, so it is not an issue. Compared to the V12's, the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

These tires are so much better than the Yokohama Avid that came with the car. They are quieter over rough pavement, grated bridges, highway cruising, and any other road issues. There is no slipping when taking high speed turns. I don't think I could get better tires at the same or higher price.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

One of the best tires I have purchased for the price range. Very quiet on smooth roads as you would expect. Have not had much opportunity to drive on wet roads so I cannot rate their handling in the wet, but I would expect them to perform as rated and tested by Tire Rack. Would recommend these tires and would buy them again if I had to.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Optimo H428

There are so many better tires for a cheaper price than these. I would not recommend these to anyone. I blew 2 in a year, and now know to get another brand. Even looking at tread patterns from the Continental or General Tire's you can see they would be better for cheaper.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

Overall these tires have performed well above the price range. This is my 3rd set of tire on the car since purchased new. The last set was a set of Goodrich Comp 2's that where wonderful except for the road noise that got loader as the tread wore down. The Hankook S1 on the other hand are quite as a mouse but hold the road like a tiger around corners. In the...  Read More
