Top Hankook Kinergy 4S Review

Given 87% (breakdown) while driving a Mitsubishi Lancer 1.8 4 Door (2008) (225/45 R17) on mostly country roads for 3,000 average miles
These tyres replaced some nasty Nankang tyres however on my other cars i run Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2.

First impressions have been good, the wet grip is night and day in comparison to cheaper brand tyres, they handled a 70 - 0 emergency stop when a lorry pulled out in the wet very well. the car feels a lot more composed and competent. The real test will be how they cope with snow (if we get any) and how they wear during the summer months. For a everyday car they seem a good all round Tyre with the potential to offer added safety in the winter months at a good price and without the hassle of changing to winter rubber. For sporty and powerful vehicles i believe that the best is still a dedicated winter tyre and summer tyre.

Given 49% (breakdown) while driving a BMW 316 (205/55 R16) on mostly town for 4,500 easy going miles
We used the previous generation of these tyres the H730 and unfortunately these are a great disappointment. My wife and I have both been sliding on greasy roads - in a 90bhp bmw!! - when the previous set didn't do this even when they were nearly done - so far this set has 4500miles. I honestly won't be buying the h740s again back to the h730s if I can get them.

Given 76% (breakdown) while driving a Honda Civic Type R (225/45 R17) on mostly country roads for 1,000 spirited miles
So i replaced Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2's on my EP3 Civic Type R with these. I tried these tyres last year on another car when it snowed and my civic could not get out of the very steep estate and they were phenomenally good in the snow.

These tyres are very good, they do feel like they provide less feedback than the Goodyear Eagles and less lateral grip however they are still very good. I feel that the loss in summer traction/feedback is worth the advantage when its wet/cold/snow handling. They feel surprisingly planted in the wet and are still miles better in all conditions compared to cheap budget summer tyres. The car will not brake traction under hard acceleration which it would do previously on Toyo proxes..

Conclusion: Good compromise for massive winter benefits. No all season will be as good as a dedicated summer performance tyre. Snow handling profoundly strong, going up large steep hills with compacted ice and snow the car did not brake traction once.

Given 86% (breakdown) while driving a Fiat Panda (175/65 R15 H) on mostly country roads for 10,000 spirited miles
Having replace Yokohama W703,W902 and Conti's winter as a primary installation, I've to admit that the latest is the best choice so far, offering better braking distance, low noise and prodigious grip in wet. Can't say much for durability since I've made only 10K. Price was the same with Yokohama's cheaper from Conti's: 240 Euros, in Greece.
