A high performance tyre engineered to deliver superior wet and dry handling, increased surface contact and greater grip
Hankook's Optimo K406 tyre is a high performance tyre engineered to deliver superior wet and dry handling. Under wet conditions, the tyre delivers maximum grip and it also gives excellent handling on dry road surfaces.
The tyre features three straight grooves which are designed to give quick water dispersion on wet road surfaces, which reduces the risk of aquaplaning.
Turbinated sub-grooves also enhance wet weather handling as they offer improved lateral drainage.
Hankook has designed the Optimo K406 tyre to have a large footprint, which ensures there is more rubber contacting the road surface, giving better grip. The Optimo K406 does not compromise on ride comfort, thanks to its unique construction that minimises road noise.
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.
