Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo2

This is my second experience with summer performance tires. First was Bridgestone 050As. That was a great tire despite what some people would say. The Hankooks have been pretty good. Smooth ride, and responsive. Grip is not bad, but could be a little better. Have not been in hard rain to really judge wet traction or hydroplaning. BTW,I have four wheel steer....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V2 concept2

The installer said I was downgrading from Michelin OEM Pilot HX but I have to disagree with him as far as dry conditions are concerned (Will submit another review in Winter). These tires do feel like balloons but I am glad I switched from Grand Touring tires to High Performance as the car now is much more fun to drive in the city but a little less firm on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General AltiMAX RT43 (T-Speed Rated)

Previously had installed Hankook H727 and had big problems with wet and snow traction, although they handled great on dry pavement and were super-quiet. I had never been a fan of Generals before but decided to install them after reading some good reviews and getting a great price. After 10,000 miles I can say I made a great decision. Wet and snow handling...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval Indy 500

These tires are wearing tremendously well. Not as quiet a former Hankook's, but the wet and dry traction has gone beyond expectation, even as tread depth has decreased. I am likely to stick with these going forward, particularly for the price.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Optimo H727

Yes, I have over 100,000 miles on this set of tires. They are noisier than the factory tires my car came with, and if you don't rotate them regularly you will get uneven wear, otherwise they're great. I live in the north and have not gotten stuck with these in the snow, as I did with other tires. Have been very pleased with them, and am looking at prices for...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS80

Have had many AWD cars and numerous snow tires over the last 12 years. Dunlop Wintersports, Blizzak DM-V1's, Dunlop Winter Maxx, Blizzak WS-50, and Hankook I-Pike. I have an AWD G37 and the AWD system is RWD biased and shifts power to front when needed. I had the Ipikes on my G35xS prior (sold for G7xS) so basically same car to evaluate. Normally I wouldn't...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

I have tried the (oxymoronically named) ultra high performance all season tires from the following major brands: Bridgestone, Michelin, and Pirelli--before trying the Hankooks. The Hankooks are understated in their abilities, but come through when called upon to respond to diverse conditions.Yesterday, when a ladder fell off a truck on the highway in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110

Purchased these as a replacement for the Yokohama Advan A82A's that I had previously. Primary reason was price point and other good reviews. I am very impressed with the ride quality, they ride a teeny bit softer than other HP summer tires - but still offer incredible grip and cornering. Highway noise is not bad considering the tread pattern, and MPG is...  Read More

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

I have used the RS3 at 8 track events @ 2.5 hours per, for a total of 20 hours of track time. They have held up very well. I appear that I have at least 2 more track days before the tread pattern is gone. Several people have told m that the tires get even better once they are slick. At that point I should have at least another 2 track days on the tires for a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

One of the better tires for the price/performance I've tried on the e39 M5. The sidewall gives on initial turn in but then hangs in there.   Read More

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 Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

Bought this tires based on good reviews here and I am so happy I did! First a few words about myself, I am big nut about tires, I used to have Tire Business in my country before I moved to the US. I drive two Mercedes 2003 and 2005 E320 CDI, so lets talk about the tires, first this is high quality tires with a good price and as all new tires they are quiet...  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
