Pirelli Cinturato P7 Review

Pirelli Cinturato P7 Review: A Summer Tire Suited to Medium to High Performance Vehicles

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.

Hankook Ventus V12 Evo2 Review: A Summer Tire For Ultra-High Performance Driving

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.

Hankook Ventus S1 Noble2 Review

Hankook Ventus S1 Noble2 Review: Ultra-High Performance Tires

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.

Hankook Kinergy ST Review

Hankook Kinergy ST Review: A Touring Tires for All-Season 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.

Hankook Kinergy PT H737 Review

Hankook Kinergy PT H737 Review: The Premium Touring All-Season Tire For Long Mileage

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.

Hankook Dynapro ATM Review

Hankook Dynapro ATM Review: All-Terrain Tires for Trucks & SUVs

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.

Toyo Extensa HP Review: A Safe All-Season Choice

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.

Toyo Celsius Review

Toyo Celsius Review: A Cross Between a Touring Tire and Snow Tire

The Toyo Celsius is not what you call a proper winter tire. In fact, Toyo calls it a variable-conditions tire. We all know snow tires are only good for winter driving. The Toyo Celsius begs to differ. It is properly classified as an all-season touring tire. However, it also happens to be qualified for severe snow conditions. 

hankook optimo h725 review

Hankook Optimo H725 Tire Review: A Safe All-Season Choice

The Hankook Optimo H725 is an economical choice for s standard touring tire. But I have to admit the newer Hankook Kinergy ST H735 offers more features and better attributes. The Kinergy ST is a better touring tire in terms of looks and all-season performance.

So where does the Hankook Optimo H725 fit in? This tire remains an excellent choice for entry-level hatchbacks, compact cars, and small sedans. And that’s about it. But if you have a larger vehicle or a more powerful turbocharged engine, the Optimo H725 will fall short of your expectations.

Hankook Kinergy ST H735 Review: A standard touring all-season tire

The Hankook Kinergy ST H735 is primed and ready for 2019! This tire was revealed in 2018 and replaces the Hankook Optimo H727 in the touring category. In some markets, you can still get the Hankook Optimo H727. But if you have a newer car, why place your bets on an older variant when you can get a new and better tire for almost the same price!
