Hankook winter tyres
Hankook is a South Korean tyre manufacturer founded in the 40s under the name of Chosun Tire Industrial co. In the past few years they have been the official tyre supplier for the DTM, and many car brands use original equipment manufactured by Hankook. This underlines the fame of this tyre manufacturer as a provider of high-quality tyres for both the racing track and regular streets. Hankook's winter tyres are, naturally, also up to these standards.
In 2012, ADAC tested various tyres in size 165/70 R14 T , among them the Hankook ICept RS W442, which scored very well in several categories. A very good driving stability and handling on dry streets were noted, as well as behaviour during aquaplaning. This tyre also remarked itself positively when it came to fuel economy for compact and family class vehicles. The blocks along the tread centre are placed at an offset from each other, which improves the traction on winter streets. The tyre is made from a high-grip full-silica compound, which allows enough elasticity in the negative temperatures to support good braking distances and plenty of traction. Top performing Hankook winter tyres, such as the Icebear W300, cost no more than regular budget tyres - on mytyres.co.uk you can find this particular tyre in sizes between 13 and 16 inch, with speed indexes H and T.
High quality Hankook winter tyres
The Icebear W300 is a Hankook winter tyre designed for SUVs with speeds up to 240 km/h. Its rolling resistance is particularly low and the fuel usage is also accordingly low - a fact supported by the ADAC winter tyre test performed a few years ago, where it won the category of fuel economy. It also enjoyed top scores for noise reduction, and showed good behaviour under aquaplaning. The Icebear W300A is a variant optimised for large rims, while the W300R is the RunFlat version of this Hankook tyre.
