Hankook Ventus Prime2 Reviews

Given 90% (breakdown) while driving a Volvo V70 2.5 (225-45-17-W)
Driving on mostly country roads for 12 average miles
have these in XL format on the front of an ageing Volvo V70 auto, maybe it's the XL variant making the difference but they have been fantastic... quiet, sure footed and lasted over 12k on a car that normally requires new tyres after about 7-8k..... they have done a mixture of dual / motorway and very wet Welsh country roads and are about to be replaced with 2.5-3mm left on them..... and just because it's a Volvo I do not drive like the pipe and trilby brigade
couple of things that may contribute towards my success with them, as said previous, XL variant used, which for some reason carries a double B rating whereas the 91s are higher... car is always fully geo-tracked on a hunter machine, wheels also balanced on Hunter equipment and tyres nitrogen filled, that said have used other tyres with lesser results.....
they seem well suited to my vehicle and that could also be part of the success, have had some tyres which were great on one car and awful on another

Dreadfully noisy, terrible tyre roar from any road surface - unbearable. Avoid like hell

It is a fair tyre, durable. It is a little hard on the road, the rubber is not so soft, makes it perfect for drivers who drive slowly.

Driving on a combination of roads for 8,000 spirited miles
Put these on the front to replace existing Continentals. Although not as grippy as the Continentals, was fairly surprised. Fairly satisfactory in the dry, withstanding aggressive cornering fairly well, and very rarely had issues in the wet. Can't really comment on Comfort, as the suspension on this car was rock solid. If your looking for perfection, I'm sure there are other tyres which will offer better handling/comfort, but overall was fairly impressed.

Given 79% (breakdown) while driving a Ford Mondeo 2008 1.6 (215-55-16-W)

These are replacing two terrible Sunitrac tyres that scared the living day lights out of me 18 months. Great grip, but best of all there was vibration in my steering wheel that the terrible Sunitrc made worse, and the previous Bridgestone Turannza ER 300 couldn't remove - it's gone now. Not sure about any improvement on fuel efficiency but this is a brilliant tyre to drive on. I have 75k miles on the clock and the car feels like new with these.

Given 46% (breakdown) while driving a Volkswagen Touran 1.4 TSI 140HP (225-45-17-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 6,500 average miles
My Hankooks came brand new with the car. It is a real surprise how VW chose them as they are crap. Very bad grip while cornering, spinning in every single start from stopped, loosing pressure all the time. I only have them for 6.5K miles and they seam as if I have them for 15K. They are supposed to be Hankook's top of their range! A real joke.

Bought these as they where recomended by a friend in May last year. Done under 10k and need replacing!!! My wife is not a slow driver but would have expected more miles out of these tyres.
