Top Hankook Ventus S1 evo Review

Given 33% (breakdown) while driving a Ford Fiesta (225/50 R16) on mostly town for 6,000 spirited miles
Dont bother. decent dry grip but wet grip is a disaster. Came with my new Fiesta 1.4 diesel and in the rain it is unresponsive and it aqua-planes. had to change after just 10000km. Replaced by Continental Premium Contact 5 and they made a huge difference!!

Given 73% (breakdown) while driving a Renault Twingo RS (195/40 R17 V) on mostly country roads for 20,000 spirited miles
I had 4 on my Renault Twingo RS 133. On the dry, not much to blame this tire. Accurate, sporty behavior. But he suffers from some shortcomings on the wet. For wear, it is average.

Given 86% (breakdown) while driving a Ford Fiesta (195/50 R15 H) on a combination of roads for 35,000 average miles
I have 2013 Fiesta 1.5tdci. Between 0- 30.000km is very good handling and wet grip. But if i apply to break a little hard (with low speed) ABS moves in very often.

Between 30.000-50.000km, comfort is very good but handling and feedback lose last performance's (100to70)
They have long life, they have still 3,5mm depth.

As a result they are good tires.

Given 77% (breakdown) while driving a BMW 1 series (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 10 spirited miles
This is my second set of Hankook tyres having used the EVO 1 variety in the past on a previous car, The S1 EVO 2 version has an all around improvement with very good grip in dry conditions, low road noise and a minor improvements in wet conditions. I feel very comfortable throwing my car around tight corners and accelerating out of corners during spirited driving. When the tyres do let go you get a very progressive and controlled release which is easy to catch. Front end grip is excellent with almost no signs of under steer.

In the wet the progressive feeling diminishes and I'm somewhat wary of how unpredictable the car can handles and as such it's best not to explore the limits of these tyres in anything but dry conditions.
