The Hankook Ventus AS is an all season highway tire made specifically for the drivers of SUV’s, CUV’s, and performance Pickups. Hankook Tires offers an extremely aggressive tread design with a sporty look for your vehicle. The Ventus AS gives your vehicle superb traction both on wet and dry road surfaces for all weather conditions. The tires also utilize Hankook's Traction Oriented Tread design which gives effective water dispersion and maintains grip on extremely slippery surfaces. The shape of the center circumferential grooves and the outside shoulder blocks help to evenly disperse water away from the treads contact patch, effectively eliminating hydroplaning. And the siping in the inner tread blocks of the tire also help to disperse water and provide the biting edges necessary when driving in wet conditions. The Hankook Ventus AS utilizes a new silica tread compound technology, which not only delivers maximum grip, but contributes to shorter braking distances, and more stable cornering, resulting in an excellent on road ride. The tire tread compound is also designed to keep noise levels to a minimum, when driving on the highway. When purchasing the Hankook Ventus AS you ensure a high performance quality ride at all speeds and in all conditions.
