Top Hankook Ventus S1 evo2 Review

Given 89% 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.

dry grip is good, but it hurts fuel economy and also the comfort

Are cheap winter tyres safe, or a false economy? Watch this video to find out!
Given 79% while driving a Lexus ISF (255/35 R19) on mostly town for 10,000 average miles
Got the tyres on feb 2018 fitted theme for both front and rear 225/40 &255/35 ... got the car with a set of nanking instead of PSS which come originally on the car ... the car was very low mileage and not driven on the Michelin tyres so the previous owner change the to that nanking ns-20 they were having a very bad grip at all time ... when i got the s1 evo 2 the car has improved much , test theme in drag strip they were amazing ... never tried to truck the car or something like that but am happy with the handling ...if i have comment maybe the are a bit stiff or noise ? Or maybe the ISF suspension is already as sport sedan
... but i will recommended theme again for such life style ... daily driven with great performance and cheap price .

Given 37% while driving a Audi TT (245/35 R19) on a combination of roads for 10,000 spirited miles
Hankook tyres on a TT Quattro from new, previous Audi always had continentals the and the difference is immediately noticeable from driving out of the show room. The Hankook tyres are noisy, road handling not great esp on corners and country roads. Wet conditions worse than dry. Tyres wore evenly all round. I will am Disappointed that Audi down graded to a cheaper tyre as it affects the driving experience. I Have since changed the full set back to the Audi recommended continental sport contact 6 R02. And I am Pleased to report the car handles like it’s supposed to.

Given 36% while driving a Audi A3 (225/40 R18 W) on mostly motorways for 20,000 easy going miles
I really hate the road feedback when driving on a thoroughly wet road. The tyres feel unsafe and make me think that I am very close to losing control even after slowing down, relative to my dry road speed, far more than I am used to doing.
These were original fit tyres and I am very, very disappointed that Audi even consider fitting them. I complained bitterly to Audi Germany, but got no response whatsoever. I will never buy Hankook again and will never accept delivery of another new car with Hankook tyres. These tyres have taken a lot of the enjoyment out of the most expensive and highest performance car I have ever owned.
