Hankook Ventus V12 Evo K110
- Ventus V12 evo tire combines performance and technology for the ultimate highway driving experience
- Hankook Tire America Corp. has created an ultra high performance tire that delivers unrivaled comfort during high speed driving - the Ventus V12 evo K110
- The tire continues Hankook's commitment to bring daily drivers the smoothest and safest ride available
- The Ventus V12 evo K110 utilizes the latest technology to maximize steering response and improve high-speed stability while the tire's water drainage system ensures safety on wet surfaces
- The K110 is a Z-rated street tire with the proven Ventus Ultra-High Performance tread compound, and comes in 25/30/35/40/45/50 series
- The directional tread of the tire gives a sophisticated look and improves traction while preventing against hydroplaning
Other benefits include:
- Solid center tracking rib - enhances braking performance and ensures optimal road contact pressure and controlled steering response at high speeds
- 3D effect on block edge - evenly distributes road surface contact for optimal handling and braking
- HPSR (High Tg Polymer + Specific Resin) Compound - ensures outstanding traction and braking on wet roads
- High-density nylon reinforcement belt - allows even distribution of ground contact pressure during cornering
- Y-shape channels, linear grooves and MTR (Multiple Tread Radius)
- effectively sweeps water away from the tire
The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.
Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm.
This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.
Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow.
Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.
