Latest Group Test Results

2015 Test World Summer Tyre Test - 6th of 15 tyres

  • Positive - Short braking distance on wet surfaces. Stable handling
  • Negative - High rolling resistance
  • Overall - The Hankook Ventus Prime2 brakes effectively and maintains good grip when cornering on wet surfaces. Predictable behaviour during emergency manoeuvres in the dry. With noise and comfort there are no problems, but they have a high rolling resistance.

2015 European Tyre Test 205/55 R16 - 8th of 19 tyres

  • Positive - Good in the dry
  • Negative - A little weak in the wet, slightly high fuel consumption

2014 Test World Summer Tyre Test - 8th of 16 tyres

  • Positive - High resistance to aquaplaning
  • Negative - High rolling resistance, nervous dynamic behaviour at the limit of grip
  • Overall - The Hankook resist aquaplaning and have excellent grip on wet surfaces - albeit somewhat worse than the leaders of the test. At the limit the tyre does not behave as predictably as we would like, and the rear wheels can go into a skid. The same pattern is repeated on dry roads. The noise level is low, but the rolling resistance is too high

Questions and Answers for the Hankook Ventus Prime2

2016-04-15 - Please could you give me rough estimate on how many miles I should be fit to get out of front tyres on 2016 Hyundai tuscon 2016 ? , best regards

Tyre mileage is extremely variable based on driving style, conditions and load. Looking at the reviews, if you have an average driving style, the Hankook Prime 2 should see around 20,000 miles on the front.


2017-12-14 - Is this type of tyre how much does it take the cold weather? I use it now in winter. But here is no snow only rainy weather. Should I change to all-season or winter tyres or it will be okay?

As the temperature drops the rubber compound will harden and offer less grip, however if you're confident you won't need to use the car in snow and ice, the Hankook Ventus Prime 2 will be suitable for cold wet and dry motoring.

Given 67% while driving a Hyundai Tucson (225/60 R17 R) on mostly town for 12,000 easy going miles
In many respects I cannot fault these tyres, they were factory fitted to the Tuscon. But having completed just 12000 miles I'm appalled that the tread has all but gone and I've been advised to replace the rear (more tread and well within legal limits) as they are PERISHED! Yes, perished - they look like they've been on an old caravan for 30 years. 2 years old and 12ooo miles is unacceptable. No more Hankook for me, back to Michelin.

Bought these years ago to replace two front Michelin Primacy tyres. After 15,000 miles daily commuting and lots of roundabouts the tyres still have 3mm of tread left. The massive pro for these tyres is the A rated wet handling, definitely a rating it lives upto as these tyres give bucket loads of grip in the rain. I’ve driven in some appalling wet weather and they have never slid once, no ABS, no ESP lights or anything. The ride is pretty firm and the sidewalls hold up well when pushed. The only con is that Hankooks have shot up in price over time for this size which will probably make me look at alternatives when they’re nearing replacement.

Given 50% while driving a Mazda 6 2.0 D (215/50 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 12,000 spirited miles
Solid tire without any sporty intentions, no shine no big issues, tire for normal straight driving limousins. Can’t compare with previous Sport Contact 5, cause this is touring tire, unlike Conti is UHP. The biggest different is from the road feedback where Conti was top. Tire is comfortable, no special noise. I took Hankook because of the price and comparing quality among similar price level. But, definitely i am driver for UHP and Continental is in my top. Now, for BMW 3 no touring tires.
