Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

First for my fellow BMW brethren -- I made the switch to a non-run flat after a total of 11 years driven on several different RFTs on two different cars. With a compressor, TPMS-friendly Slime, and a mini-spare, I hope I'm covered. These are quieter, smoother, and take bumps better. Even though I went from a summer performance tire in the RFT, I don't feel...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus R-S3

This was the only size Hankook made to fit my 7x15 rims. They dropped the convertible car 1 in ride height, lowered the rear ratio 10% to 3.60:1 which is excellent in all respects. The improvement in handling is very intertaining in a stock car. Well under 6 seconds 0-60 now and have to feather the gas on launch to keep from smoky burnouts. Once these tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

From the perspective of a VW GTI w/ a tune - this is THE ideal all arounder. Not quite a track tire, but for practical quick outta my way - im late driving, they're ideal. I put 8000 miles of the 26000 miles during the Polar Vortex. They did okay - I didn't get stuck, but I had to drive notably slower in the snow and allow for more time; these aren't...  Read More

My car needed new tires so I purchase them from Tire Rack. They were exactly what I was looking for, speed, quiet, handling, traction, and cheap. I received my tires in Germany within 7 days. I didn't expect them to arrive here so fast. So that was awesome!!! I noticed the difference when I put them on. It was so quiet. All I can hear is my engine. No road...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo2

This tire is awesome, have them on my stage 2 wrx and love them. They are very quiet and comfortable. Dry traction is prime. Wet traction is even better! Never been able to make them slip or skip on pavement and they do pretty decent on other surfaces too especially when absorbing pothole shocks. The only complaint I have is they feel a little sloshy at the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

The original equipment tires on the car were not the best performers on wet or snowy surfaces. Tire Rack reviews indicated this was a decent tire in snowy conditions. With the 6 speed manual in our car with the high torque of the 6 cylindar engine the tires were easy to break loose in slippery conditions. We have not encountered snow as yet but the grip on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

I have about 2000 miles on these tires on my WRX so far. My driving has been highly varied, with lots of highway miles and lots of canyon carving, mostly in very cool, sub-40* weather. Frankly these tires have exceeded my expectations so far, to the extent that i'm not sure i'll go back to summer tires when the season arrives if i'm not doing autoX. Overall...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

Tires are as good as I hoped they would be when installing them 6 months ago. They are super grippy and responsive for an all season tire, but the tread seems to be holding up well and they are SOOO quiet and comfortable, which is great for cars with a stiffer suspension. I try not to drive this car when there is a chance of snow so I cannot comment on snowy...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

I love having performance tires on my economy car! Never thought that I would ever buy Korean tires. I found these here on Tire Rack, saw the great reviews and decided to take a chance. I'm a fairly aggressive enthusiast but this MkV Jetta is basically my station car. These tires are sooo much better than the stock Contis. I believe that they are lighter in...  Read More

Have had my 08 sts for several years now and have finally got the opportunity to really put the AWD feature to use. I live outside Nashville Tn and have been commuting 75 miles round trip in the ice and snow. Tonight on the way home I thought I was driving on hard packed ice but the car was so stable and controllable I had to stop, open the door and lean out...  Read More

Taking Your Mazda Miata to the Next Level

The Mazda Miata has long been a crowd favorite with driving enthusiasts. While it's an amazing vehicle, the level of excitement can be taken to the next level with the right equipment.    Tires are a top priority and the Dunlop Direzza ZII Star Spec and Hankook Ventus RS-3 (Version 2) are both favorites. When we tested each last fall, the ZII Star Spec...  Read More

This tire has exceeded my expectations especially during the past winter which was tough with a lot of snow in WNY state. The ride is also very smooth and quiet given the miles. Many tires like this design start making loud road noise at 10-12k miles.   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 V12 evo2

Installed the Ventus on my Mustang GT as a summer performance tire. I garage the car for the winter. Great tire with excellent grip in all conditions except snow. Quiet, stable when cornering, great stopping power and grip at launch. Wearing very evenly with rotation every 7k miles or so. I have about 12k miles on them now and they appear as new with little...  Read More

I am very impressed so far. Tread depth is still at 8 with 15,000 miles. I use snow & ice tires so I can't rate winter performance.   Read More
