The Hankook Kinergy eco K425 is a tyre that helps reduce harmful emissions – it is environmentally friendly both during its manufacture and when in use. The model is designed for passenger cars and is exceptionally good for both everyday driving around town and for longer journeys. Its unique asymmetric tread pattern means that the tyre quickly disperses water to the sides. This reduces the risk of the vehicle skidding and limits the risk of aquaplaning.
The Hankook Kinergy eco K425 offers excellent grip, whatever the weather. Thanks to the use of a new compound, produced using an innovative procedure (using new mixing technology), the tyre has exceptionally low rolling resistance. This obviously results in reduced fuel consumption, which is guaranteed to please all drivers looking for good value running costs. Apart from its lightness, the compound is also noted for its high durability, which makes the tyre resistant to mechanical damage. The model wears slowly and can be used for longer, which is another point in its favour from an environmental point of view. Its new silica-based technology gives it better braking specifications on wet surfaces and reduces noise. With its unique specifications, the designers have managed to instantly muffle tyre noise, making even everyday driving a genuine pleasure.

Is this review helpful?
I went on this set in 1,5 year 80'000km.
Impressions are as follows:
+ superb dry traction
+ very good wet performance
+ mega quiet, good sound suppression
+ very good suppression of road irregularities, the car feels comfy
+ strong grip, difficult to cause ABS to work even with sudden braking (in relation to other tyres)
+ somewhat nice looking tread, but less important
- MADE IN CHINA, unfortunately, now they are done in China, it was heralding faster consumption and I think that's the way it is
AFTER THE DISTANCE ~ 80'000km:
- they are not so quiet anymore, they are average
- this distance, with a calm and economical driving without being reckless, ate them up to ~ 3-4mm, so they quickly worn off to my eye.
+ on the wet still great (better only I have had was UniRoyal Rainsport)
+/- on dry is so, so
- rolling resistance increased, and so the combustion rate
- on the slippery road one has to be more careful, the back of the car hasn't the best grip
+ so far I have not piunctured any.
- on the highway they are louder, while the new ones were much quieter.
- we have a mild winter and there is no snow anywhere, so I have not changed them and, frankly, they are bad on slippery conditions compared to other summer ones that I have had, generally light snow slush makes it hard to drive but I take into accont that they already had 80000km of mileage and only half tread, so maybe it just has to be this way.
Would I buy them again?
I chose between Nokian and Vredestein and a few more. I did not bear that these were made in china .... next I will buy Vredestein or some other premium brand. If someone is not too reckless it should last longer. They say that hard tyres are less safe, but if you're a level-headed driver they will last longer. If I compare them to others, UniRoyal RainExpert was better than them and they were perfect tyres for rain and worse weather in general, while in hot weather they were worse, worn out similarly to those and I thought that they would last a lot longer than those.
I drive rather calmly, which makes all of 4 tyres wear out very evenly.
Regarding the tyre itself - I'm with the price, definitely better both in terms of road grip and the noise than Presto, which I had previously mounted. It performs well on a wet road, does not lose grip, only a really deep puddle causes a slight skid. During braking it behaves predictably, it is easy to feel the moment of balancing on the verge of the grip and in this field it beats Presto, which very often activated the ABS. Until now, I had the brand's winter tyres bought in December 2013, used in the first winter until late spring, and in the season 2014/2015 founded in November then they traveled all summer and the following winter 2015/2016. In total, 80,000 km passed, of which about 45 thousand in a typical summer season. After removing the front, the tread is flush with the winter wear indicator (2mm left for the TWI), and the rear tyres are still suitable for one winter season, they have about 4mm tread above the "winter" indicator. So I hope that summer Hankooks will be as strong and I will be as happy with them as with the winter tyres of this brand.
I have chosen those tyres after a long time of thinking and analysing many tests I found on the Internet. I considered to buy many different tyres of some upmarket brands. Rolling resistance, noise level and wear are at the high level in Hankook Kinergy eco K425 tyres. I wasn’t disappointed with my purchase. Very good tyres at a really good price. I searched many websites and OPONEO is one of the cheapest offer and it is certainly the company with the greatest experience. That’s why I decided to buy tyres from them. It may look like it is just a good plug but see for yourself and search the Internet. Even if something would happen with the tyres I know that it is a well-known company and it will still exist :) I can also add that the tyres behave great on dry surfaces during hot days. Similarly on wet surfaces during cloudy and rainy days. Summing up Hankook Kinergy eco K425 tyres are perfect and I recommend them to all. That’s my opinion :) Successful selection and safe driving.
I decided to buy some Hankook Kinergy eco K425 tyres after reviewing several tests in the automotive press, where they had quite high positions. As for the price / performance ratio, they are doing very well. I traveled about 3,000 km with a large middle class estate on them. I assess the traction on dry asphalt high, there is no fear of losing grip and they quickly overcome curves or sudden braking. They perform relatively well on wet surfaces, they hold well from side to side, braking does not cause loss of stability. One problem is rapid starting on wet asphalt, even with a gasoline engine it's easy to lose grip. Well, maybe I demand too much from tyres at this price. A serious minus, however, for problems in balancing the wheels - I've done that twice, including the demounting. At approx. 90 km / h there are slight vibrations, which weren't there on with a winter Hankook tyres. It pumping them up about 0.2 bar helped. Perhaps i just had some worse batch than regular ...
I was thinking a lot before buying new tyres but my fitter advised me to buy Hankook Kinergy eco K425 tyres. He finally convinced me when he explained what are their advantages. The tyres are remarkably stable on dry and wet surfaces. Very good, short braking distance. They’re also very quiet what is their one of the largest advantages. Honestly, I was the most delighted with the tyres behaviour on wet. I could not belive how good they are. You can move with a very high speed. Of course, without exaggeration. The grip is good even in the puddles. There are some minuses of course. After 6 months I noticed there is about 2 millimeters less on the tread. I think that wear could be better. But I believe there are no products free of flaws. Maybe that’s the price for the perfect grip. However, I do not recognise it as some big problem. Hankook Kinergy eco K425 tyres still have so many advantages I would buy them again.
