It's been a long time coming but additional sizes for the Hankook Ventus R-S3 are on their way, just in time for the 2012 autocross season. With a few new sizes already in stock, we expect to have more available in the coming weeks. You can always pre-order a set and reserve your spot in line and we'll ship once your size is available.
This Extreme Performance Summer option is a super sticky dry tire used by many autocrossers. This tire will hang with the best and always represents a great value for the weekend warrior. Hankook's Racing Carbonblack Silica Compound (RCSC) technology has been incorporated in the Ventus R-S3 to improve dry grip. You don't have to be a racer to enjoy the benefits of this tire. While it meets the demands of autocross, drifting and track events, it was also developed for serious sport cars, sport coupes and performance sedan enthusiasts looking for a race-minded street tire. The Ventus R-S3 was designedto reduce the performance gap between street and track tires by significantly improving dry traction; it's also important to remember the tire is not intended to be driven through snow, or ice or in near-freezing temperatures.
The Ventus name and unique flame patterns are subtly recessed into the center rib and both intermediate ribs to help drivers show off their "hot" new treads. Be sure to get your set before they're gone!
