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?

Tire Rack - Dunlop Direzza ZII Introductory Track Drive
http://www.tirerack.com/a.jsp?a=HP5&url=/tires/tires.jsp&tireMake=Dunlop&ti reModel=Direzza+ZII When rumblings of a replacement for the Dunlop Direzza Sport Z1 Star Spec began, its fans debated the pros/cons of any change while they waited to see if improvements could be made without losing the good in an already great tire. The goal was simple if not easy: improve dry traction/handling without sacrificing any wet/wear characteristics. We found out if they succeeded in this preview of the Dunlop Direzza ZII.





Tire Rack - Testing Value Priced Ultra High Performance All-Season Tires
http://www.tirerack.com/a.jsp?a=HP5&url=/tires/tests/testDisplay.jsp&ttid=1 73 We often assume a good deal comes with a catch. After all, there is no free lunch. When it comes to tires, there is a wide range of brands, products and prices. Finding the best balance of performance and price yields a good value. Among today's Ultra High Performance All-Season tires, there are a number of good choices. How do they perform?





Tire Rack Tire Test - Testing Max Performance Summer Tires Tuned for North American Drivers
http://www.tirerack.com/a.jsp?a=HP5&url=/tires/tests/testDisplay.jsp&ttid=1 20 Driving in the U.S. and Canada vs. Europe or Asia is very different. The condition of our roads, the mix of urban driving plus extended highway cruising and even consumer preference vary. Continental Tire recognizes this as they develop tires tuned specifically for North American drivers. To find out how well their most recent example, the ExtremeContact DW, meets the needs of the North American market, Tire Rack compared it to three other Max Performance Summer tires: the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric, Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 and Pirelli's P Zero.

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 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.





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 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.

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
