Latest Group Test Results

2015 Test World Summer Tyre Test - 6th of 15 tyres

  • Positive - Short braking distance on wet surfaces. Stable handling
  • Negative - High rolling resistance
  • Overall - The Hankook Ventus Prime2 brakes effectively and maintains good grip when cornering on wet surfaces. Predictable behaviour during emergency manoeuvres in the dry. With noise and comfort there are no problems, but they have a high rolling resistance.

2015 European Tyre Test 205/55 R16 - 8th of 19 tyres

  • Positive - Good in the dry
  • Negative - A little weak in the wet, slightly high fuel consumption

2014 Auto Express Summer Tyre Test - 4th of 10 tyres

  • Overall - With a string of top five places, the Hankook Ventus Prime 2 is another strong showing from the Korean company. Beaten only by Pirelli and the Goodyear Dunlop pair, the Prime 2 was fastest during wet cornering, well controlled and stable, offered a positive turn in and finished second and fourth in the aquaplaning tests. Weaknesses? Rolling resistance and wet braking

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.

Given 71% while driving a Volkswagen Jetta 1.4 TSI (205/55 R16 V) on mostly town for 37,000 average miles
This was an OEM tyre on my car for 4 years. I have expected some other premium brand on my new car for OEM tyre but Hankook surprised me in a very positive way. This tyre is problem-free in the dry grip. A little bit weak in the wet grip. Especially, when the green light appears on a wet road, tyre immediately starts skidding and this confuses the DSG transmission and then DSG shift from 1 to 2 with a deep shake. This phenomenon was very unnoticeable at first 3 years but in last year this made me annoyed. No problem with the wear. Road feedback is decent. Handling is not sporty but fairly enough. However, comfort and noise topic turned me to look into another brand. Since my car is not famous for its sound insulation I went for a super-silent and comfy tyre. Finally, this is a budget tyre with a surprisingly good performance.

All around very good tire. Sometimes tends to struggle for grip on smooth asphalt surfaces during wet conditions.

Tyres spin very easily, especially on a slight incline or in damp conditions. 12000 miles on these and have been very disappointed, new purchase is Michelin Primacy 4 and already enjoy the experience much more.

After 16.000 km low wear.Very good handling both dry and wet roads.The only negative is noise and consumption (maybe from high resistance).Next tyre will be ventus prime 3.
