Hankook Ventus S1 evo2 is an Ultra High Performance Summer tire. Ultra High Performance Summer tires are for driving enthusiasts who want a combination of a performance appearance, crisp handling and Z-speed rated (or higher) durability along with dry and wet traction. Often used as Original Equipment (O.E.) on sports cars, performance coupes and high performance sedans, Ultra High Performance Summer tires are not intended to be driven in near-freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice.
O.E. Ultra High Performance Summer tires are typically purchased as direct replacements for worn-out pairs/sets of the vehicle’s original tires. They can also be used for other vehicle applications in complete sets of four or axle pairs if available in an appropriate size, load range and speed rating to match the existing O.E. tires’ performance category and specifications.

Junk tire!!!! Only have 32.000 and need replacement for all four.These tires came new with a 2017Ford Explorer. I would never ever buy this tire.
I drive my car more than 150 miles per day over various road surfaces in NE FL. These tires are holding up wonderfully well. I’ve had no problems with blistering/bubbling sidewalls as another reviewer claimed. The tires may be louder thn other more expensive options, but i can’t tell. All in all I’m very pleased with my purchase and will buy again soon.
Awesome tire. Bought a used Infiniti with 60k miles on it. Tires that were on it very squishy and didn’t allow the car to perform based on my driving style. Had some time to research and kept coming back to these. I am a florida resident so hot asphalt, torrential summer rains, and very dry warm roads in the winter is typically what I encounter. It took it all…couldn’t believe the handling…summer down pours where water had pooled in the tire lanes of older highways plowed through it. triple digit highway speeds…not a problem…off ramps at double the suggested speed limit all day long…tires are bomb proof. Plus given this “spirited” driving style the tread wear was beyond…only started to notice a drop in the performance around 35k miles. Of course they were regularly rotated at about 5k miles. Great tire you won’t be disappointed.
Overall, good set of tires, they can perform good on both the dry and wet, they also last long.
