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?

Everything That You Wanted To Know About Tires
In this video, Jeremy from 1A Auto explains everything about car and truck tires. Read below for helpful tire math, and the Speed, Load, and Class quick references. We cover: - Tire Sizes - Tire Age - Tire Construction - Tire Speed Ratings - Tire Load Ratings http://blog.1aauto.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/Tire-Speed-Rating-Quick-R eference.jpg Here is a Tire Load Rating Quick Reference http://blog.1aauto.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/Tire-Load-Rating-Quick-Re ference.jpg Here is a Quick Reference for Tire Classes, Construction, and Acronyms http://blog.1aauto.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/Tire-Acronym-Quick-Refere nce.jpg Bonus info (because we love math)! Want to figure out how wide a tire is in inches? Just multiply the width by the magical number .03937. Example Tire Size: 235/45/17 235 x .03937 = 9.25 inches wide (This is the width at the widest. Usually the tread itself is slightly less, because the tire "balloons" slightly at the sidewalls.) Want to figure out the overall height of a tire in inches? Just do the math below. It's easy! Example Tire Size: 235/45/17 235 x .45 = 105.75 (That's the total height of the sidewall in millimeters. Now we need to convert it to inches.) 105.75 x .03937 = 4.16 inches Now since the diameter of the entire tire includes two sidewalls and a wheel diameter, we have to add them all up... 17 + 4.16 + 4.16 = 25.32 inches More Tire Information Here: http://www.1aauto.com/content/articles/tiresizeguide





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.





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.
