I think most brand have few series of tires for different purpose. Find the one suitable for your driving requirement. Cheap series last longer but poor on wet road perhaps. More expensive last shorter unfortunately. I tried many brands, but choose the good performance for both wet and dry... and usually but whichever on sales laugh.gif The latest Hankook one is really good ... forgot the series wink.gif

Soon there'll be many reviews on hankook kinergy ex, cause it's now the default tyre for Axia. I would say it's a good move from perodua

my previous tyre was V12
directional, noisy after some uneven wear
i would say superb in dry and wet grip as well as cornering (sidewall hard enough to me)
conclusion: super value for money if you are looking for performance tyre and dun bother the noise.

as mentioned, V12 evo by Hankook which is UHP tyre
we cant expect performance, comfort all in right
as this is directional tyre, it wont be quiet
itz better to compare model instead of the brand
i heard V12 evo no more stock in the market and the new V12 evo2 is yet to arrive

Yes Ventus ... because of the angle of thread pattern is narrow to moving direction, it is relatively quiet. Wide groove in the middle also helps to disperse water. I'm using it on my Viva (yes only Viva) and I drive with confidence during heavy rain. The car "glide" straight forward in case of aqua planning when water is quite deep. The shop say tyre is quiet. That is what salesman always say smile.gif, but I tend to believe because i=of the reason above.

It was on sales fro rm300 each that day laugh.gif . Good enough to myself sold.

I have used Hankook S1 Evo 205/40/17.. Superb performance tyres as it was Hankook's flagship tyres then..

Then I used Hankook V12 Evo 205/40/17, 195/55/15 and 195/50/15..

S1 Evo is better than V12 Evo... V12 Evo is good as well for it's price..

Last time I use V12 Evo(k110), 205/40/17. I found the grip is acceptable and handling too. Only one thing was, the sidewall was too soft...

Not sure about the V12 Evo2(K120) though...

even at dry road i can hear tyre screeching when tackle the corner, my last maxxis i-pro is far far better than this but only last me 40k. maybe will wait my rear pair botak first then get other tyre since i dont want under-steer during my spirit driving cry.gif

Yeah I noticed that too. Usually for traction rating AA, at least tread wear 300-350.
But there are also tires with low tread wear (<300) but traction rating also only A, so I suppose the AA/500 can happen as well, but maybe still not as much grip as those with AA/300.

It's not high performance tire, but actually just mid level tire. Hankook's high performance tires are the S1 Evo 2 and V12 Evo 2.

Well I never really brake hard much plus its on the back wheels. I cant comment much. For me 195 profile is anytime better than 185. Which was significant when I upgraded. New tires need some time to be conditioned, maybe it will get better a bit.

I'm not sure about 15-inch but believe or not, is not the matter of tire size, the thread design not well perform in raining season. Mine was manufactured 2015, Made in Indonesia.

Okay, I cant comment on that. Mine was a bit new changed it before CNY. Manufactured week44 2016, Indonesia. So far it helps to stabilize my big car with skinny tires. Again it rained alot during CNY, but I didnt slam the brakes. So far so good.

so far feel normal..today heavy rain but i did not get a chance to really test it in rain as i used trunk road and no more speed than 80kph... but in dry i feel it is ok nothing to shout about but decent grip enough for daily use ...mine is manufactured 46th week of 2016 also made in indonesia...

i wanted a quiet tyre and the shop recommended me this...my previous michelin xm2 came with the car when i bought it (2nd hand) 6 mts back but it was really noisy and was driving me crazy...checked the date it was manufactured in 2013 so the shop man told me it could have hardened hence generate noise..anyway i dont know hw long my car was sitting in the hot sun at the used car..

but surprisingly after changing to hankook i feel there is not much difference in noise generated by the tyre sound just a little less....or is it just me ?? hmm.gif

anyway my ride is a vios 2011 g limited spec...maybe poor sound insulation ??

XM2 should not be that noisy. This Hankook, I'm not sure.
Yeah I suspect poor insulation of the car.
Anyway don't rely on me about tire noise as I listen to loud music in the car and noise is never a selection criteria for me in choosing tires! laugh.gif

so far as i use hankook shows decent grip la ,but i did not speed when it rains so can't really justify how it performs in wet conditions, somehow if u can pay more then may go for better grip tyre, hankook is suitable if on a tight budget

yup i guess so too... in my vios i can very well hear the tyre roar especially on rough tar and concrete roads...on newly resurfaced tar roads the roar is considerably less..but my 24 years old iswara with its more cheaper sime/sportiva tyres is much silent or rather it has better sound insulation ??

Agree, i chnage to 4 x 185/60/r14 almost half year ago. The wet road grip is horrible. Even my rojak tyre ( xm2 at the front and goodyear nct5 stock tyre that almost botak) have better grip.
Was planning to get XM2 during that time but the sales person seems manage to convince me to get the Hankook tyre.

So far I got few owner all having same experience as mine.

I check with tires shop before, they said that caused by pattern, it cant disperse the water efficiently when wet handling

Previous so call lousy "Goodyear Eagle NCT5" far more better than it...used until botak still wont like that.

So scary like snake swing left and right even low speed during wet road.

Just changed for my BMW 225/45/R18 P7 RFT to S1 Noble2... laugh.gif

Was considering PS4, Fleva, V12 Evo2...

But wanna try something more quiet & comfortable...I suppose most non-RFT will fit the bill...and PS4 the better performance match...

For now meets my expectations...will see how it goes after running in smile.gif

Why is this Noble2 isn't discussed more I wonder? It must be moving OK since mine's dated 0317...350/pc incl gst, alignment, camber.

Is HANKOOK tyres consider cheap and low grade?
The newly launch VW TIGUAN fitted with Hankook Ventus s1 evo2 SUV and also the newly launch BMW 740Le fitted with Hankook Ventus s1 evo2 RFT.
Never use this brand before and wonder should I swap the tyre right away when I collect the car.

S1 Evo2 is Hankook's top of the line model and comparison test reviews in Europe have come out pretty good too for this tire so just use them.

235/55/18 size is SUV size tire so usually top of the line performance tire of a brand would not make such size. They are made more for sedan/sports car tire sizes or SUV which use low profile tires.

The pattern already screams "slippery when wet" ... lol...

It's not very bad per se...just not designed to disperse water...

But yes I agree don't buy this...

Bro, if high speed 80km/h I can accept the fact, even low speed 20km/h also cant grip wet road, felt cheated lo

i can also confirm from my experience that hankook kinergy ex is a very slippery tyre. even though it is super duper new like one day old.

so far feel normal..today heavy rain but i did not get a chance to really test it in rain as i used trunk road and no more speed than 80kph... but in dry i feel it is ok nothing to shout about but decent grip enough for daily use ...mine is manufactured 46th week of 2016 also made in indonesia...

i wanted a quiet tyre and the shop recommended me this...my previous michelin xm2 came with the car when i bought it (2nd hand) 6 mts back but it was really noisy and was driving me crazy...checked the date it was manufactured in 2013 so the shop man told me it could have hardened hence generate noise..anyway i dont know hw long my car was sitting in the hot sun at the used car..

but surprisingly after changing to hankook i feel there is not much difference in noise generated by the tyre sound just a little less....or is it just me ?? hmm.gif

anyway my ride is a vios 2011 g limited spec...maybe poor sound insulation ??

Agree, i chnage to 4 x 185/60/r14 almost half year ago. The wet road grip is horrible. Even my rojak tyre ( xm2 at the front and goodyear nct5 stock tyre that almost botak) have better grip.
Was planning to get XM2 during that time but the sales person seems manage to convince me to get the Hankook tyre.

So far I got few owner all having same experience as mine.

I check with tires shop before, they said that caused by pattern, it cant disperse the water efficiently when wet handling

Previous so call lousy "Goodyear Eagle NCT5" far more better than it...used until botak still wont like that.

So scary like snake swing left and right even low speed during wet road.

Never buy Hankook anymore. Jan 2016, two days after I changed my front Hankok tires ( all 4 are Hankook), was taking turn at Jalan Istana to KL Sentral doing about 60km/h the car lost control lucky beside didn't have any car. Took back to tire shop they say my tires are fine.

Don't use Hankook Kinergy EX, you will regret. I just replaced all with Bridgestone Ecopia EP150, my problem resolved. It was a very bad tires, failed to disperse water on wet road even new.

Wah so much bad reviews!! If slippery when wet, how did this tread design ever made it in Malaysia??

Just saying la, a lot of you guys dissing on the tire, but it also depends on how you drive.
Take everything with a pinch of salt, if you drive like a hooligan, any tire also not safe la.
Everyone dissing the tire like going to die or crash anytime like that hmm.gif hmm.gif

Honestly its not as bad as people say it is. Decent performance for especially if you can find it cheap. Better than Goodyear and Silverstone. I used them and they were fine. I'd say even better than my previous Continental CC5. Better resistance to aquaplaning than the CC5. I mean the CC5 was absolute garbage compared to Kinergy EX.

People who say they are bad never experienced even worst tyres like those weird brands from China, Thailand tyres. To name a few, Deestone, Westlake, Linglong, Farroad, Saferich, Joyroad and all of the other crap brands.

Thanks for the input man! I've experienced CC6 which is not bad I must say. Quiet, but not silent. However the wear is a bit higher. My own opinion after usage that is.

They are quite good. Not a bad as most people say they are. Honestly better than Conti CC series and XM2 which costs more and do not perform as good.

extreme opposite reviews spotted...
conclusion, those using hankook kinergy:
(A) skidded on wet: because drive fast and corners like f1 racer.
(B) never skid on wet and praised: because drive too slow like turtle with 20km/h cornering speed.

I almost changed to this hankook kinergy when tyre shop told me goodyear triplemax 2 no more stock after they dismantled my old tyres from rims. after consideration i took toyo ne03 coz saw very huge difference opinions.

Ventus v12 evo and s1 evo series should be good in wet conditions. I think the kinergy models is the one that's not great in wet conditions. But yes, waiting for your feedback.

S1E2 is Hankook flagship so it shoukd be very good, even better than v12e2. Where will you get them from coz not many selling this.
