VENTUS V12 EVO2 K120

Max Performance Summer

Overall Rating (8.5)


Hankook Ventus V12 EVO2 K120 are designed for sports cars, sporty coupes, and high performance sedans like the Mazda MX-5 Miata and Hyundai Veloster, the Ventus V12 EVO2 K120 max performance summer tire is even more reliable than it is visually impressive.

Excellent handling, traction, and control in both dry and wet conditions combine with extreme comfort.
Features and Benefits
  • A high grip silica tread compound features an innovative styrene polymer that lowers tire rolling resistance and enhances vehicle fuel economy without sacrificing dry and wet traction.
  • The compound is molded into a directional tread design that features notched shoulders and 3-dimensional intermediate ribs flanking a continuous center rib to promote dry handling and traction.
  • Circumferential and Aqua jet lateral grooves promote efficient water evacuation from the center of the tire's contact patch to increase hydroplaning resistance.
  • The tire's internal structure includes two wide steel belts that are reinforced by two plies of spirally wrapped joint-less nylon. High stiffness bead fillers sandwich hard rubber between the sidewall's polyester cord casing plies to improve handling response by resisting distortion at high speeds and while cornering.

Comments Had these on for about 2 weeks,running them at 32psi. Awesome tires. Changed my mind and put the Continental Extreme Contacts on. Only because I only have one car right now and was afraid of the winter with the Hankooks. It's too bad because the V12's drove like butter. If I lived in Florida, I would of definitely went with the V12's. I would highly recommend these tires for Summer!!!

Comments So far I am extremely happy with these tires. Major improvement over the stock tires that came on my car. Handling is exceptional on both wet and dry pavement. I did notice a small decrease in mileage after putting these on my car but not enough that I'd be concerned about it. First set of Hankook tires I've purchased, I would definitely recommend to friends and family!

Comments So far these tires have been just as good as the Michelin's I've been running since the car was new. I have noticed a slight increase in MPG's too but it may be too early to tell for sure. I have not had a chance to see what they're like in the rain yet but I'm sure that day will come soon.

Comments The service was great. I am not that impressed with the tire itself. I went with a summer tire from an all season because the car is garaged all winter. I thought that they would perform better in the rain etc. than the all season ones I had but that is not the case. I chose the tire so it is not Town Fare's fault. I will probably replace all 4 tires in the spring.
