Given 91% while driving a Volkswagen Jetta GLI Mk6 (225/40 R18) on mostly country roads for 26,000 average miles
While driving it on a powerful FWD car it is an allround good tyre. No major cons. Maybe because it is an american all weather tyre it is a little weaker in the wet. If you are trying to accelerate fast in the wet. But that is also common problem for a front wheel drive car with more power. All in all, a good tyre for its price and the wear is quite good after 41000 km there’s still about 5-6 mm of thread left.

Given 67% while driving a Ford G6Et (245/40 R18 W) on mostly motorways for 10 spirited miles
I have a 400+ rwhp rear wheel drive car. When I purchased these tyres the car was around 300rwhp and the tyres were adequate. Since the mods I cant feed more than 1/4 throttle in wet at any speed. But that's not the tyres fault. Its not designed for cars with this power and torque. As I said when the car was stock these tyres were fine, not great but at that time I wanted tyre life as it was a daily.

Given 61% while driving a Mazda 8 (MPV) 2.3 (235/50 R18) on a combination of roads for 35,000 spirited miles
The dry grip seems to be ok, they're not Bridgestone Adrenalin Re003 or Michelin PS4 sticky, but they're more than enough for a family mpv (I did use Potenza RE003 and PS4 on a family mpv), but they will aquaplane dangerously on road with poor drainage and puddle. Aquaplaning at 100km/h on a highway isn't fun and scary, but these tyres will aquaplane easily at more 80km/h and would actually lift both front tyres without any grip whatsoever. Aquaplane once at an 80km/h bend and needed to counter steer the oversteer moment in a FWD family mpv, which is not usual with my other set of tyres (Bridgestone, Michelin, Yokohama). Dry grip is not bad, they're better than the Yokohama that was an OEM tyre from the factory, could lean on it and progressively understeer with enough warning so you could control the understeer. They're noisy after 20,000km, but they will last a long time. If I'm not mistaken they're in the 500 treadwear, but replaced them at 35,000 because I got a puncture and sidewall was destroyed because of that.

Given 87% while driving a Toyota Camry (215/50 R17) on mostly town for 12,000 average miles
It takes a pair of bad donuts, for you to realize the good donuts your have.
For my case, the good donuts are Hankook Ventus S1 noble2, the bad 1 is BF Goodrich Advantage.

After 2 years & 20,000km+/- on rear wheel, thread is still around +/-70%. Goodrich at the front is balding / flaking bad on the shoulder at 25,000km & aquaplaning in mild rain at 90kmh.

Too bad the my local dealer said Hankook is discontinue this model very soon.
Now I've got 4 good donuts, drive with peace of mind

Given 87% while driving a BMW 320D M Sport (225/45 R18 W) on a combination of roads for 5,000 spirited miles
switched from the Pirelli Cinturato P7 recently, this tire feels more comfortable and has more dry grips too. steering feedback has also improved noticeably, the only complaint is that the road noise is getting intrusive at speed >120km/h.

comparing to other tires I've used previously on the same car:
Michelin PS3 - similar dry grip but S1 Noble2 gives better steering feedbacks
Bridgestone S001 RFT - better traction and steering feel too but S1 Noble2 is more comfortable

Amazingly quiet and comfortable. Seriously. Very ridiculously comfortable. Makes Manila roads feel liveable and keeps you sane on the daily commute, while still putting a smile on your face during high speed cornering. For costing less than 80% of PS4, dry and wet grip are both really good, but of course not as great as PS4. Can't say anything about wear as I've only run them for a while.

Given 93% while driving a Mazda Mazda 6 Wagon 2015 (225/45 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 45,000 average miles
Put a full set on in Dec 16 and they are done at 72,500 km of daily driving. Only time I have noticed wear was wet corner last week (oh and I was going a bit quick).
The original Bridgestone's fitted to my 2015 Mazda 6 Wagon lasted 48,600 vs Hancock 72,500.

The Hancocks are cheaper last longer, handle better, stop better, just better.

I had Hancocks on my 2012 Mazda 6 Wagon as well and got 70,000 plus from each set. It wore 3 sets before I traded.

Given 60% while driving a Mazda MX5 (205/45 R17 V) on mostly country roads for 1,500 spirited miles
A comfortable smooth tyre, however they have been a terrible good match with my MX5. Steering feedback and handling qualities were significantly reduced by fitting these tyres, so much so that coupled with the MX5's very sharp and quick steering characteristics handling characteristics were unbearably sloppy and unstable. After 1500 km's I returned to the supplier and much to my appreciation was given a refund/credit.
In spite of terrible steering qualities I do commend them for very good grip levels in both dry and wet conditions. Comfort and noise levels were good. On a less sport oriented car they could be quite a good tyre choice.
