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.
I recommend this tyre.
It took me a while to decide what to choose. I was wondering. Should I strech my budget a bit and buy some branded premium class tyres? I said no and i bought Hankook Ventus Prime2 K115 and I am satisfied that I didn't overpay.They are a lot cheaper than Pirelli or Michelins, but the quality they offer in my opinion excelent. They handle well in the dry, my car sticks to the road like it was glued :) They are also very good on wet. I havn't noticed aquaplaning. You only need to be careful when pulling off dynamically because sometimes they like to lose traction on wet and this is the only con I can find. Tread is quite soft but not excessively consumed after one season with virtually no signs of wear. The comfort on 17 inch rims is not bad, I would say it is decent. The tread pattern may not be a super-hyper modern but this is probably not the case. It has a firm grip on the road and it is what it should do. I noticed a slight decrease in fuel consumption. Hankook Ventus Prime2 K115 are definatelly worth the money. Hankook is a brand that started in motorsports so I believe that they know what they are doing. From now I will by Hankook without hesitation.
