Hankook Ventus S1 evo Reviews

Given 81% (breakdown) while driving a BMW 730d Sport (275-40-19-)
Driving on mostly country roads for 10,000 spirited miles
Fantastic tyre. Fitted 4 to my BMW 7 Series 57plate. Fantastic grip. I am a quick driver so the tyres have been punished. I live in North Wales with windy fast roads the tyres never let me down. Only problem is the Rear set have only managed 10kmiles and are down to wear indicator. The fronts have probably got another 5k miles left. Great tyre but hoped they would last longer.

Driving on mostly motorways for 18,000 average miles
Bought a tyre with 6mm on it part worn in RFT and lasted 18k which is impressive it has still had 2.5mm of tread but now replaced. Excellent wet and dry grip and quiet too.

Very quiet even in RFT, excellent handling in the wet and dry and very progressive when cornering hard too.

The steering wheel felt a lot lighter with these tires on the front axial (had Dunlop SP SPORT before), don't know why. However, so far so good. With such a low price tag, there is nothing to complain.

Given 50% (breakdown) while driving a BMW 520D M Sport Touring (245-40-18-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 5,500 spirited miles
Having seen good reports on the Hankooks I managed to source some run flats to replace the disappointing Michelins on the rear axle. The Hankooks are impressively quiet, as comfy as the Michelins and appear to grip as well in a straight line. In snow they were an absolute revelation!
Unfortunately they have made the car really, really nervous, feeling twitchy and positively unsafe on the motorway. I've played around with pressures, which has got rid of the odd "slip then grip" sensation when faced with even the slightest steering movement, but find the stability system cutting in almost every day at very moderate speeds on constant radius curves like motorway slip roads. Overall, I love the silence, and the fact that I am getting more MPG, although that is because I am having to drive more slowly. Cannot recommend these tyres, and can't wait to get rid of them. They have effectively ruined what was a very decent drive, and my wife flatly refuses to drive the car now- it really is that bad.

Very disappointed. Switched to these from Bridgestones. The rate of wear was eye watering. Went through a pair on the front in about 10k miles of pretty normal usage. A false economy - lesson learnt!

Having spent 2 months pondering the right tyres to fit, these have turned out to be great value for money. They will need rotating soon due to front wheel drive but other than that, they are for a 1.4 hatchback, great tyres.

They don't need to be quick, or sporty or anything like that. Only thing would be that they can feel a bit light on the steering but that could be the car design too.

Only had these tyres for 1000 miles but so far so good. They provide excellent grip and very comfortable and smooth ride.

Given 43% (breakdown) while driving a Chrysler Crossfire (255-35-19-)
Driving on mostly town for 10,000 spirited miles
I purchased my Chrysler Crossfire with these tyres on. They have reasonable straight line grip in the dry, however have nasty roll when cornering at speed. I tried various tyre pressures to fix this with no luck. The tyres are extremely noisy and have a loud shimmy noise/vibration due to the tread pattern. The tyres were very difficult to balance, I had them balanced three times, and finally got 'forced road balancing' done to get them right. I recently had to replace the tyres due to a 1/2 inch spanner finding its way into the side wall of the tyre during daily driving. Not such a bad thing, as I have now got a set of Bridgestone Adrenalin's as a replacement which are better in every respect.
