Hankook Ventus V12 Tire Review

Hey guys,

Wanted to give a quick review on the set of Hankook Ventus V12's I just threw on the ride:

Size - 255/35/19 (Fronts)

Performance - 7.5/10
>Dry - 8/10
>Wet - 7/10
Comfort - 10/10
Noise - 10/10
Tread Design - 7/10
Longevity - N/A

Overall (un-weighted) average: 8.6 (References: PS2 - 9.5, Continental CS3 - 8, Nitto Invo - 9)
This is actually very accurate to Tire Rack's website.

At the end of the day, I have found that these are great tires for the price. If you are looking for a budget tire that is a good performer, while not sacrificing comfort or noise level, this might be the tire for you.

Pros:
-Low cost.
-Good performance (wet/dry).
-Quiet.
-Variety of sizes.
-Very comfortable on rough roads.


Cons:
-Slightly less responsive.
-Sidewall flex at higher speeds *update below*
-Tread design isn't the most appealing / could cause faster tread wear.
