Top Hankook Ventus S1 evo2 Review

Given 89% (breakdown) while driving a CitroŽn C4 (225/45 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 15,000 spirited miles
Hello you all :)

I've bought these tires in March 2015 and finished the season in the starting of November 2015. So after 15k miles (22k km) i have to say that they are excellent ! My tire dimension in 225/45/ZR17 XL. They grip is excellent in every condition. The way the tire manages water is very good and in the heated summer days the tire has a system to dissipate heat from the interior. The tires are class E on fuel consumption but there is a big advantage here: the grip better than because there soft; the main disadvantage is that they wear faster. The next summer i think is going to be the last one for them and after that will buy a new pair.

Given 83% (breakdown) while driving a BMW 335i (255/35 R19 W) on a combination of roads for 15,000 average miles
Really like them, took the car from the UK to the Nurburgring at high speed, did a couple laps and the car never felt like it was going to let go at speeds in corners I'd never do on a public road, and came back with the cruise set to 130mph on the autobhan

Car handles great even after chipping it to 350BHP and the tyres seem to be able to cope well except when too much throttle is used, but reckon most other tyre brands would give up as well

Given 100% (breakdown) while driving a Skoda Kodiaq 2.0TDi (235/55 R19 W) on a combination of roads for 8,000 spirited miles
Fitted as standard to my 2017 Kodiaq 140kw TDi and they are superb. Yes a summer tyre but I took them to the mountains and they coped fine with compacted snow / ice without chains. They are very quiet, no perceptible road noise, and the dry grip in an SUV is phenomenal. Early days to adequately judge wear but so far so good. I will definitely look to replace like for like when it comes around for a change.

75 40 18 are a rip off size made so made it a mission to compare makes.

WAY better traction ie no wheel spin at junctions in normal driving like Contisport 5 which came with the car from new, or Dunlops sport maxx (where the only benefit is quietness).
