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 ??

IMO, vios has very poor soundproof. My vios with mc5 is killing me.  mega_shok.gif

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 ??
