just get my self Hankook Ventus2 Concept2, size 205 45 r17, RM290 Per-donut, shop at Rawang TMK tyre shop with Big Hankook signage, shop recommended to me this model since i do spirit driving with Mid level UHP tyre. not test yet but so far so good.

but what shocking me is thread wear for this tyre 500 with AA grip  shocking.gif  shocking.gif
Last time i use to have AA grip tyre with thread wear 210.

any review for this tyre?
*
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.

im using v2 concept2 but cant comment on the noise n bumpy bcoz i change the size from 215/45 to 205/55
regarding grip, it not up to my expectation (i have some expectation bcoz itz rated as high performance tyre)
*
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.

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

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.

Which Hankook model are those?

Well it's a low end model but I'm not assuming anything coz I also don't know how you drive or how was the road condition and the corner.

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.

I tried to call up to check s1 evo2 tire for size 235/55/18......(which I believe is the size for tiguan).....most hankook shops doesn't even know about this tire.

too bad......I would not havemind trying out the tire
*
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.

But it's still new!
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

Hahaha but you're one who said going to die ma. Lol. Anyway then pakai dulu lor, until maybe 50% then only change. Just try to drive more careful lor.

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.
*
Continental CC series has always been absolute crap tires.

Gonna change to S1 Evo2 from my current Prime coz ongoing offer, will give feedback on wet condition performance. Scared d after seeing u all say skid during turn.

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.
