The Yokohama Geolandar A/T G015 is primed and ready for your next adventure! It offers superior off-road performance with high levels of comfort and refinement. Back in the old days, all-terrain tires were one-trick ponies. They offer assuring performance in off-road driving but suffer greatly on smooth roads. But with the advent of new tire technology and design, Yokohama was able to create a capable all-terrain tire with the smooth highway manners of a touring tire.
The Yokohama Avid Touring S is a touring tire designed for all-season driving. It’s a solid choice for compact cars, small hatchbacks, family sedans, small crossovers, and minivans. You are probably familiar with Yokohama’s Orange Oil-infused tires that offer lower rolling resistance and stronger performance in wet and cold weather. Sadly, Yokohama decided to use a different compound for the Avid Touring S.
The Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus is an ultra-high performance tire for all-season driving. This is the perfect tire for sporty sedans, sports cars, and high-performance crossover SUVs. This tire is engineered to be driven in all seasons including light snow. It is also renowned for providing lasting comfort and low levels of road noise.
Pirelli is among the biggest tire manufacturers in the world. The Cinturato P7 is Pirelli’s first-ever ‘green performance’ tire if that makes sense. This is basically a summer touring tire produced from lesser raw materials. It is also engineered with a 15% further reduction in rolling resistance for larger gas savings.
When you think about it, the concept of a green tire is not far-fetched. Pirelli utilized the latest materials and tread pattern design to come up with the Pirelli Cinturato P7. This tire is ideal for sporty compacts, fast sedans, and sports coupes.
The Hankook Ventus V12 Evo2 is dedicated to the performance enthusiast. However, the Ventus V12 Evo2 is a summer tire for ultra-high performance driving. Unlike the Hankook Ventus S1 Noble2, this tire is at its best when the roads are dry.
However, Hankook managed to infuse the DNA of an all-season tire in the Ventus V12 Evo2, but not by much. What’s hard to ignore is the aggressive directional tread design. There’s no mistaking this for a touring tire, that’s for sure! If you have a high-powered sports car or sports sedan, check out the Hankook Ventus V12 Evo2 when summer arrives.
The Hankook Ventus S1 Noble2 is one of my favorite tires. It costs less than comparable ultra-high performance tires but it performs like a true sporty tire. Of course, there are limits to what this tire can do on the road. This is not the tire to buy for racing or track days. It is more at home in the street and can give your sporty sedan a boost in handling and comfort.
The Hankook Ventus S1 Noble2 is a hybrid tire. Hankook merged the qualities of a high-performance and touring tire. The result is higher levels of grip than a humble set of all-season tires. It also manages to remain comfortable even during highly-spirited driving.
Remember the unique tire compound in the Kinergy PT? Hankook did the same with the Kinergy ST. But instead of utilizing carbon black molecules, the Kinergy ST is constructed using a dual-filler compound. This maintains the flexibility of the rubber when exposed to changing weather conditions.
The tire comes with a solid center tread rib to improve stability and steering feel. It also benefits from stiffer tread blocks to ensure even wear and better handling. The treads come with variable traction grooves to improve wet braking and snow traction. This feature works alongside the multiple notched sipes and variable angle sipes with extended kerf lengths to further enhance traction in wet or icy roads.
There’s a reason why the defunct Hankook Kinergy H727 was a popular choice. It not only delivers sporty levels of grip, but it also came with a 100,000-mile treadwear warranty. So when Hankook came up with a replacement in the form of the Kinergy PT H737, the company knew it had to offer a lengthy treadwear warranty in order to warm the hearts of previous buyers.
In a nutshell, Hankook has a winner in the Kinergy PT H737. In this review, you’ll find out how the tire performs in a variety of road conditions. This will hopefully guide you in purchasing the right set of tires for your ride.
The Hankook Dynapro ATM is a rugged tire for aggressive all-terrain driving. But what makes it different is the acceptable on-road refinement. Other all-terrain tires are great off-road but suffer from numerous drawbacks when driven in the street. This is not exactly a bad thing since A/T tires are primarily intended for off-road driving. But other A/T tires are now more quiet and refined in street driving.
In this review of the Hankook Dynapro ATM, we’ll discuss what makes this tire great and why it’s a solid choice for a rugged, capable, and affordable tire. More than that, we’ll also look into the shortcomings of this tire and why other tires such as the Goodyear Wrangler and Yokohama Geolandar A/T G015.
The Toyo Extensa HP remains a great value-packed choice for an all-season high-performance tire for sport coupes and sedans. However, Toyo tweaked the design and features of the original Extensa and came up with the Extensa HP II.
But nothing was lost in the translation. The Extensa HP II has the same unidirectional tread design as the first-gen Extensa HP. Perhaps the biggest difference between the two is the rubber compound. The Extensa HP II benefits from a special silica compound for stronger wet handling and longer wear. This will address the wear issues of the Extensa HP.
