Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110
Initial Review: 15,500 miles on tires
June 30, 2012

I was initially very impressed with these tires compared to the OEM Hankooks. They noticiably sharpened steering response, cornering and wet weather performance, along with a firm but compliant ride. They were a nice match for my car. Initally they were also reasonably quiet. However, with 15K on these tires, they have become extremely loud, with a howl and also a wup-wup-wup undertone. At 65-70MPH, my usual speed range on the highway, the noise is intolerable, and getting worse. While I hate to replace these Hankooks since they have a lot of wear left, I am going to have to I'm afraid. I cannot recommend them.
