The Ventus AS (RH07) is Hankook’s Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season tire developed for the drivers of crossovers, sport utility vehicles and prestigious pickups looking for year-round, on-road capabilities. The Ventus AS is designed as a suitable O.E. replacement or Plus Size application that combines a smooth ride and low noise levels with year-round handling and all-season traction, even in light snow.
The Ventus AS molds an all-season compound into a symmetric tread design featuring large shoulder blocks and a continuous center rib to promote driving feel and stability. Six main circumferential grooves (a first for Korean tires) help cool the tire and allow water to escape through the footprint to resist hydroplaning and increase wet traction. An open shoulder design and stepped shoulder groove walls help evacuate water and slush to enhance foul weather traction and steering response. Siping in every tread block provides hundreds of biting edges to generate snow traction.
The tire’s internal structure is based on a computer designed tire profile that provides the benefits of “slightly round” footprint shapes over a wide range of loads and inflation pressures.
