Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

Brand: Hankook
Tire: Ventus S1 noble2
Category: Ultra High Performance All-Season
UTQG (treadwear): 500 AA A

The Ventus S1 noble2 from Hankook is a high performance tire and is one of the best in this category. It was developed to provide four season (even light snow!) traction for high horsepower sports coupes and sedans. This tire utilizes Hankook's own Kontrol Technology, that is their unique and innovative research, development, and production process. With this tire, they use a hybrid silica compound that combines low rolling resistance for fuel economy with wet road traction. The Hydro Blocks also help with wet roads along with 3D sipes. Internally you'll find twin steel belts and spirally wrapped nylon to help durability.

Even though this tire is rated very highly by drivers, this traction comes at a cost. You'll likely get no more than 40,000 miles out of a set, but know that you'll have great traction during the life of the tire. So essentially what I'm saying here is that this tire will wear out fairly quick. You might notice a little bit higher road noise as well. So we kind of have a Jekyll and Hyde tire here. Great traction, but it will wear on you more quickly than competitors and you have to deal with some road noise.  If you're looking for more of a total package tire, you might check out others in this performance category.
