Hankook's Ventus V12 Evos are very good performance tires and for the price, they're excellent. I purchased a set for my awd Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution 10 and drive them exuberantly on tarmac, gravel and snow (just not on actual ice) and they're such good tires, I'm buying another set. Yes, there are tires that will last longer, but they're not performance tires in this league. Yes, there are tires that are more track-focused but they probably wouldn't work as well on the mix of city, highway, rain, dirt roads and even snow that I enjoy so much. I even purchased a set for my fwd VW GTI and like them for that car too.
