Thumbs up Tire quwery

It appears the HANKOOK brand is bandied around here..so I'll give them a shot
I am <ahem> torn between the HANKOOK Ventus S1 Noble2 and the
Hankook Ventus V2 H437
My Limited Edition Cruiser has stock P205 55 R 16; the 'stock' aluminum rims
Opinions welcome

Flame away!!!


FWIW is the ~$20 difference in the S1 tires worth the difference? This is general riding around and SOMETIME hot rodding;-)

I've never used either tire, but just for future reference-----it's 'query'.

Don't sound like you will notice anything but the tire wear. The way you drive. Which is the most important thing to me when I buy tires. In that regard Hankook is usually over priced compared to other offered brands. just my past experience.

I have NO EXPERIENCE with HANKOOK; just going by what I read
I type FAST and do NOT always do the spell check; I am quite aware of words' spelling. AND I can do math with a paper and pencil; add subtract; square roots...all kinds!!!

Easy big (or little) guy. You're going to have a stroke! If you'll notice I followed my comment with a wink. It was not meant as a criticism, but something to be made note of for future use. Since the W and the U are so far apart on the keybord, I didn't think it was a mis-hit, so I wasn't sure if you knew or not.

Since you seem to go off so easily, I've made a mental note to adjust my attitude in all future dealings with you.

I have the 205/55 R16 tires on aftermarket rims. I purchased them in August. I am very pleased with the handling. Cooper Zeon RS3 A tires. I got a good deal at "Tread Depot" delivered to the house.

I bought Nexen n3000 tires. They are a high performance tire but economy priced. I plus sized the tires but kept the stock 17" wheels. These are summer tires so they worked well all year round for me in Texas. They also have a thread pattern that handles rain pretty well, not that I see much of that, either. My understanding is that they don't perform in snow...... but you never said how you plan to use your tires so??????

My intention is for summer driving...MAYBE some hot rodding.
DON'T want a ride like a rock but I don't want sticky tires to burn out in 10,000 miles either; some middle of the road decent handling/wear tires.

Experience is the best for choosing no matter WHAT tread wear the tires claim.

I am in the quest for winter rims right now for NEXT year; I will install P205/55-R16 Blizzak tires on these rims; they are the best IMHO. We get enough ice and snow here to justify it. I have the storage capacity to run 2 different types of tires for the weather.

why spend your money on tires made in china/korea/hungary? there are a lot of tire manufacturers located in North America. BF Goodrich has plenty of good offerings. something like a Traction TA has a good mix of grip and longevity. my mustang had unbelievably amazing grip on wet pavement with those. Uniroyal(owned by Michelin) is good too. My favorite PT tires to date are Uniroyal Tigerpaws. Those tires had great traction and lasted a very long time. Most Nitto's are made here, some in Japan. Those look sporty and if not from here it is no secret Japan makes better stuff than China. Cooper, Danny likes them. One of only two tire companies owned and operated in this country.
