Hankook tyre of Korea have just announced that the Hankook Ventus Evo2 SUV has been approved as original equipment on the latest X3 hatchback “sport activity vehicle”. Hankook’s tyre engineers worked closely with BMW to devise a tyre offering high steering precision and sharp dynamics in BMW’s sporty tradition without any surrender of the luxury cabin comfort demanded by modern motorists.
The new EVO2 SUV pattern has been proven on Hankook’s “Technotrack” in Ivalo, Finland, and has gained wide acclaim for the new benchmark it sets which Hankook say is testament to the engineering performance of the company’s tyre developers. Speed rated to 270 kph, the Ventus Evo2 SUV has reinforced layers of specially developed heat resistant hybrid textiles to cope with the higher operating temperatures of heavy SUV’s and provides high rigidity of the lower sidewall with the benefit of particularly good handling characteristics.
Hankook Tyre is a manufacturer of premium tyres which enjoy wide acceptance as original equipment on many prestige and luxury vehicles. Tyresales stocks the full range of Hankook tyres and has a Hankook tyre for almost every vehicle.
