Hankook - summer tyres 2024 - market overview, tests, reviews

Compare Hankook summer tyres made in your size:


In our selection process for this feature, we have carefully chosen a few Hankook summer tyres that have shown noteworthy performance across recent tests. Our criteria have been stringent, focusing on those tyres that not only deliver outstanding results but also illustrate Hankook's innovation and technological advancement in tyre manufacturing. Among those selected are models that have undergone multiple evaluations, ensuring that only the best-performing tyres are highlighted.


First on our list is the Hankook Ventus Prime 4, a tyre that has superseded the Hankook Ventus Prime3 K125. This latest iteration has garnered attention for its significant improvements and has been subjected to various tests across different organizations. Notably, it received a "satisfactory" rating from ADAC in 2024 for the 215/55 R17 size. This was followed by an impressive performance in Autobild's 2023 test for the 225/65 R17 size, where it was deemed "exemplary" for its balance between dry and wet handling, sporty steering behavior, and efficient rolling resistance. Tyre Reviews recommended the tyre in 2023 for its overall performance while ADAC noted its performance as "good" in the same year, highlighting its balanced capabilities on both dry and wet roads but mentioning slight weaknesses in aquaplaning and efficiency.


Transitioning to the SUV segment, the Hankook Ventus S1 evo3 SUV K127A has asserted its place as a formidable contender. As a new tyre with more than one test, its performance in Autobild's 2022 test for the 235/55 R18 size was remarkable, earning it an "exemplary" rating for its capabilities both off-road and on dry surfaces, alongside the shortest wet and dry stopping distances within its category. Such attributes solidify its status as a versatile and reliable option for SUV drivers.


Another notable mention is the Hankook Ventus S1 evo3 K127, designed for unparalleled performance. This tyre, despite being relatively new, has undergone extensive testing. It was highly recommended by Tyre Reviews and ACE in 2023 for showing exceptional agility and braking performances on both wet and dry surfaces. Autobild's evaluation mirrored these sentiments, particularly praising its balanced sport profile, dynamic handling, and energy-efficient rolling resistance. However, it did also mention a less than average tread life which influenced its overall rating slightly.


In presenting these selections, we have not only focused on the test results but also the progression Hankook has made in their tyre technology. Each model, be it the successor like the Hankook Ventus Prime 4 replacing the Prime3 K125 or the innovative introductions in the SUV and UUHP categories with the Hankook Ventus S1 evo3 SUV K127A and Ventus S1 evo3 K127 respectively, vividly illustrate Hankook's commitment to advancing tyre performance and safety. These tyres represent only a fragment of Hankook's vast and versatile summer tyre portfolio, but they stand out for their proven capabilities and the breadth of testing they have been subjected to.
