Writing about the Hankook Ventus Prime 4
Driving on a combination of roads
for 3000 average
Went for these from Michelin PS4, which were starting to be noisy and not that grippy. Wanted to buy GY F1AS6, but found nobrainer deal on these (30% cheaper than GY). Reviews seemed OK and my main focus was to improve road noise so had no issue going i to "Touring" line. As usual with new tyre better grip is there. Tyre is really quiet on highway 110kmh+. In speeds around 80kmh there is strange high-pitched distant whine when cruising/pulling, goes away when deaccelerating so something not that premium with the outer thread design, but no dealbreaker in comparison to real noise from worn PS4.. I really have to bring up wet performance as that is just outstanding tested multiple times during storm on highway, but again mostly thanks to fresh new deep thread. Steering is superlight with this tyre, have to drive all the time with steering switched to Sport mode to get same response as from PS4 in Normal mode. Overall really good deal of tyre.
