Tyre Test Highlights

2012 Autoreview Touring Tyre Test - 1st of 9 tyres

  • Positive - Best aquaplaning result, strong grip on dry and wet roads
  • Negative - A little unstable during the wet handling tests

2014 Auto Bild 50 Summer Tyre Shootout - 2nd of 50 tyres

2014 Auto Review Summer Tyre Test - 205/55 R16 - 3rd of 16 tyres

  • Positive - Good wet grip, good handling in the dry, low noise
  • Negative - Average wet grip, comfort
  • Overall - This year, the Hankook OE approved for much of the Mercedes S-Class, and we can see why! The Hankook Ventus Prime2 provide excellent traction on wet roads and confidently resist aquaplaning. On a wet track the car's behavior is rather darty - somewhat reminiscent of driving on tyres Pirelli, but they both allow you to go fast. And on dry pavement - quickly and enjoyably. Reaction to steering clear and accurate even at a speed of 150 km / h, and for the comfort of the tyres, Hankook has the same evaluations as Pirelli. Nois is the same, and the difference is that the Hankook slightly stiffer respond to small irregularities, but slightly softer for larger bumps. Are you still wondering about the Korean origin tyres? Not us. At least for summer tyres, Hankook can be put on the premium cars. The winter models are still lagging behind, for now...

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.

Top Hankook Ventus Prime2 Review

Given 90% (breakdown) while driving a Volvo V70 2.5 (225/45 R17 W) 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

Given 81% (breakdown) while driving a Ford Focus MK3 (215/55 R16 V) on a combination of roads for 15,000 average miles
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% (breakdown) 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.
