    Questions and Answers for the Hankook Ventus S1 evo2 SUV

    2018-12-03 - I drive a Porsche Macan S 2016. I am looking for summer tyre in 19". I found a document from Porsche recommending the Hankook Ventus S1 Evo 2. But they do not specify the SUV model. Which model should I actually get ? Do I need the Hankook Ventus S1 Evo SUV or the Hankook Ventus S1 Evo will do ?

    As long as the tyre meets the correct size and load rating, you can use either. On a sporty SUV like the Mecan I imagine both will be suitable.

    Given 85% while driving a Kia Motors Sportage (245/45 R19) on mostly country roads for 5,000 spirited miles
    On a 2016 Kia Sportage. Around 6mm after 5,000 miles so wearing well, surprising level of grip in both wet and dry. Not really up to much off road grip wise, but take the punishment without getting damaged.

    An all round really good tyre, would recommend

    Given 80% while driving a Audi Q7 (285/35 R22 W) on mostly motorways for 26,000 average miles
    26.000 miles and still enough on all 4 tyres to do another 4300 miles, The tyres came on a newly bought audi.
    to my great surprise the tyres a very comfortable, little road noise even not on cobblestone, good grip in rainy weather and enough grip when dry to keep up the pace. Wear &tear much better then expected. will buy this tyre again.

    Given 90% while driving a Volvo XC90 (2) D5 momentum (275/45 R20) on a combination of roads for 15,000 average miles
    15000 miles and rear tyres still 3my. For a very heavy car that’s really. These are much cheaper than Continentals ( even cheaper than VOL ones!) and I can’t tell the difference. Would buy again from my independent tyre dealer

    Given 81% while driving a Audi Q7 (285/35 R22) on a combination of roads for 10,000 average miles
    For the price these are a great tyre, fitter was surprised they were Audi original equipment but they are a good tyre in the dry and the wet, manage to keep my Q7 safe on the road without complaining. They are not very good in snow but they don’t claim to be and are a summer tyre. Massive rim protector too which is a bonus with 22s. At around £100 a corner cheaper than the big names, I cannot fault these.

    Put the Hankook Ventus on my Range Rover sport from tyre specialist advice and got 9000km before tyres were destroyed. Hankook have washed there hands on the matter. Never buy Hankook again there warranty and backup service is disgusting.

    6000lbs car needs good rubber. These are better than the Continentals from the factory. Better grip and less noise. So far (6000miles) have good wearing qualities.
