Tire Rack - Testing Value-Priced Max Performance Summer Tires

http://www.tirerack.com/a.jsp?a=HP5&url=/tires/tests/testDisplay.jsp&ttid=149 When looking for a value, one doesn't often find maximum performance. And when you want the absolute maximum in performance, it's rare to find a real value. There's a group of value-priced tires delivering handling that lands them solidly in our Max Performance Summer category. But how well do they combine a blend of excellent traction and reasonable pricing?

They're the pinnacle in tire technology, blending the latest in tread compounds and internal components with highly engineered designs. To find out how they drive, we selected several of the best and two of the newest to compare.





Tire Rack - BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2 Introductory Drive
http://www.tirerack.com/a.jsp?a=HP5&url=/tires/tires.jsp&tireMake=BFGoodric h&tireModel=g-Force+Sport+COMP-2 We got an advance look at the g-Force Sport COMP-2 before it was available to the general public and had the opportunity to drive on production-spec tires, comparing them to several other popular Ultra High Performance tires in the marketplace. Here's what we learned about BFGoodrich's improvements to this second-generation tire.





Tire Rack - Winter Testing at the Arctic Circle: Ultra High Performance All-Season Tires
http://www.tirerack.com/a.jsp?a=HP5&url=/tires/tests/testDisplay.jsp&ttid=1 24 Our three-part Arctic Circle winter series from January of 2009 concludes with this evaluation of the effectiveness of Ultra High Performance All-Season tires -- during the height of the winter season -- in Northern Sweden. These tires' three-season focus usually comes at some expense in the fourth season's wintertime traction levels. Our test revealed just how much, or little, snow traction is provided in these all-season designs by comparing the Bridgestone Potenza RE960AS Pole Position, Continental ExtremeContact DWS, Goodyear Eagle F1 All Season, Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus and Yokohama Avid W4s.





Tire Rack Tire Test - Winter/Snow vs. All-Season vs. Summer Tires on Ice

Winter Tyres v Summer Tyres: the Truth! - Auto Express
Fore more videos visit: http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/videos/ British motorists tend to run summer tyres on their cars all year round, regardless of the weather. However, as our exclusive comparison test shows, this can be very dangerous. We headed to Sweden to compare the performance of summer tyres with winter tyres on snow ­ and the results were quite shocking.

Hankook Tire: The Future of Tyre Design
The high performance tyre of the future will be very different to the tyres we drive on today, if the results of a recent design competition are a guide. A Hankook Tire competition in the US has challenged some of the country's brightest industrial design students to imagine the role of tyres in automotive design from new angles. The winning entry by University of Cincinnati student Ben Zavala took the brief somewhat literally, with his Tiltread car tyre rolling into corners at an angle like a motorcycle tyre. Zavala's breakthrough idea was to split the tyre into three parallel ring sections, each mounted on a corresponding split section of wheel. As the wheel turns and leans, the three tyre sections are individually raised or lowered, allowing them all to maintain traction with the road surface. Tiltread's wheels are hubless and contain an electric drive motor which varies power to each tyre section, allowing the sections to spin at different rates during cornering. University of Cincinnati associate professor Ralph Zammit said the competition demonstrated just how great an impact improvement in tyre design could have upon the overall efficiency, ecology and economy of road transportation. "Hankook proposed a very challenging assignment that provided the students with real-world insights as to how tyres are currently designed, manufactured and the performance issues they must address," said associate professor Zammit. "Students were especially encouraged to consider sustainability needs such as reducing and reusing raw materials." Second place in the competition was taken by Mark Hearn who imagined an off-road tyre called Motiv, which features numerous height-variable, non-pneumatic tread blocks that can adapt to extremely rough terrain without risk of blow-out. Third-placed Miranda Steinhauser's proposal for an eco-friendly tyre also impressed the competition judges. The Tessela tyre's easily removable tread components allow consumers to replace worn-out tread when required, rather than the whole tyre carcass, reducing tyre waste and landfill. Models of the first, second and third placed tyres were displayed on the Hankook stand at the 2012 SEMA automotive show in Las Vegas.

Hankook Tyre Comparison
A car wearing worn tyres which are low on air pressure will take almost two full car lengths longer to stop from 100km/h on a wet road. This video shows the results of a test just released. The leading Australian tyre and suspension engineer who conducted the tests, Graeme Gambold, says: "That's the difference between going straight through the intersection, straight into the car or truck in front of you, or hitting a pedestrian -- it's that significant," Tyremaker Hankook commissioned to conduct the braking tests as part of its tyre safety public awareness campaign called Pump it Up.





How to stretch a tire... and how you don't.
First time we had to use fire to make a tire stretch out. Stretching 195/45R15s on 9Jx15 BBS RMs. Didn't work at first, but we got there! (Still not as good as in other videos I have seen, but hey..whatever! It's fun!) As more and more people cry about handling and whatever when it comes to stretched tires: These wheels will be going on a stanced out 1986 Scirocco 16V weekend cruiser. It's meant to look good in the first place, handling just comes second. Stretching tires that much will make the handling in fast corners worse...normal driving you won't notice any difference though. On my MKIII GTI, I run 195/40s on 9" wide rims for daily use and meetings, while I run 215/35s on 9" wide rims for track use (see my onboard videos on the Nürbrugring). 215s will just stretch slightly on 9", stiffening the sidewall up only a little, giving you a more direct steering, while still allowing fast cornering. In combination with harder rubber bushings, more stiff suspension setup and unbiall top mounts, etc.etc. this results in an almost GoKart like, very direct handling...sure not the fastest setup, but fast and fun enough for me.





Hankook Ventus S1 noble2 Features & Technology
The new Hankook Ventus S1 noble2 (H452) represents the ideal balance of an ultra-high performance tyre, without compromise in safety, and will be one of Hankook Tyre Australia's volume selling tyres. The S1 noble2 features a triple-radius profile that maintains maximum grip under ultra high performance all-season driving conditions, and offers lower rolling resistance for increased fuel efficiency. The tyre was also developed through the use of 3D vibration analysis technology which produces an advanced mould profile, designed to deliver uniform contact pressure on the tyre's centre and shoulder blocks for secure braking performance. Straight rib blocks are applied to the outside of the tyre to reduce road noise. Advanced 3D 'kerfs' have also been applied to the tyre to reinforce winter traction and prevent wear without hampering wet and dry handling performance. The S1 Noble2 is available in 16-inch to 20-inch sizes, from 215 to 245 cross section, with aspect ratios of 40 to 55 and a W (270km/h) speed rating. Priced from just $160 (incl. GST), this will allow entry into the Hankook Great V8 promotion, until Jan 31, 2014, for as little as $640 for the purchase of four S1 noble2 tyres. For more information on the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2, visit www.hankooktyre.com.au.
