Product description & features
The Hankook Ventus V12 Evo 2 is a high performance tyre, designed for owners of sport and high performance cars.
Hankook have developed the Ventus V12 Evo 2 tyre with a silica tread compound to deliver high levels of grip. The directional pattern of the tyre's tread features notched shoulders with 3D ribs on either side of the continuous central rib - to help provide drivers with strong traction and stability when driving at high speeds.
To tackle the risk of aquaplaning when driving in wet conditions, the tyre also features 'aqua jet' lateral grooves - these collect and quickly remove surface water from the path of the tyre.
With ride comfort in mind, the Hankook Ventus V12 Evo 2 has been designed with grooves in the intermediate blocks to reduce the external noise of the tyres.
What are summer tyres?
Summer tyres are specifically designed for warm weather conditions, particularly during the summer season. This type of tyre performs best when in seasons with warmer temperatures - above 7°C.
How does a summer tyre perform better in summer?
The technologies and tread patterns used in a summer tyre mean the tyres have high-quality features that are of benefit to driving in warm conditions. They typically use a softer rubber compound – designed for good grip and traction when driving on dry and wet roads.
Can you use summer tyres in winter?
Whilst summer tyres still offer adequate performances in wet and cooler conditions, it is recommended that you change. The tread design and technologies that are featured in summer tyres can harden in colder temperatures, resulting in reduced flexibility and decreased traction on snow and ice.
