Default HTR Z3 vs Hankook Ventus V12 Evo

Looking to get some new tires soon, I know the sumo's have gotten good reviews, just wondering if anyone has experience with the hankooks? Thanks.

I haven't read any reports about the Hankook Ventus V12 Evo here yet. It's a UHP summer.

Most of the buzz here has been about extreme performance summer tires. The RE-11 and Ecsta XS seem to be tied as front runners with Star Specs running a very close third. Since you can buy a XS for less than $ than the V12 and for the same $ you can get a Star Spec, I haven't seen much on the V12 Evo.

where did you find the xs for less than the v12. I've found the v12 for 99 each.

You are correct. The price for the V12 is quite a bit less than I thought. I saw prices for the V12 225/45R17 from $87 to $106 and that's quite a bit less than XS ranging from $121 to $142 for the same size.

Have you looked into the Hankook R-S2 for a little more than the V12?

I would skip them

look at the Federal 595RS-R instead

I've had both and the 595RS-R was FAR better...in another galaxy better
