Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110
Follow-Up Review: 14,000 miles on tires
This is a very forgetable tire in the ultra high performance summer tire. Noisy on highways, not very good in the wet as far as traction goes, once it reaches about 60% left the hydroplaning resistance goes way down. And it squeals if you're a bit too aggressive.
Initial Review: 7,000 miles on tires
Well this is a pretty crappy tire. It doesn't accel in any category that I can tell. The wet traction (where it's supposed to shine) is not all that good. Neither is the dry. The noise is ---awful now that they are about 60% worn down.....all in all it's not really any good.
I'll go back to a Fuzion ZRi or BFG G-Force Sport before this again. The ONLY redeeming quality was the now gone rebate I got.
These are like the Kumho Ecsta SPT only worse in every way by a slight amount...except price...much pricier per mile.
