Writing about the Hankook Kinergy 4S2
Driving on a combination of roads
for 4000 average
I am a track day enthusiast but this tyre was fitted to my Golf Bluemotion daily hack.
I previously had the latest Goodyear Efficient Grips and fitted these going into the cold snap in December 2020.
Dry grip is good but compared to the Goodyears previously they do have a slower initial response
But this is an all season v a summer tyre, so what do you expect.
In the wet, it is simply fantastic. Often you hear the cliche that "you can drive your car in the wet like you can in the dry!" - but with this you really can.
Incredible confidence in all conditions and have not aquaplained at all.
Snow/Ice - obviously not a full winter tyre but they're excellent all round. Can certainly keep you moving while other cars are stuck spinning their wheels and give you lots of confidence.
Obviously not an enthusiast tyre - but they're an excellent tyre for all conditions and for people who have to do a lot of driving (my commute is 110 miles a day, 5/6 days a week) and have also fitted them to my Partners car too.
Economy wise, i have not noticed any difference in economy between the Goodyears and these Hankook (still over 70mpg)
Have done approx 4000 miles and no visible or appreciable wear. I did also have a fresh alignment carried out when fitted.
10/10 would recommend these.
