Hankook Ventus S1 Noble2 H452

Designed with an asymmetric treatd pattern, the Ventus S1 Noble2 incorporates a four channel rib design for efficient water evacuation and an advanced silica rubber compound to offer impressive wet handling and braking. A straight rib block design applied to the outside of the tires contact patch helps to prevent unwanted road noise and increase cornering grip, while multiple 3D kerfs and carving edges provide improved winter condition traction. Additionaly, the Ventus S1 Noble2 offers a 50,000 mile limited treadlife warranty. The Ventus S1 Noble2 is the ideal balance of all-season ultra-high performance.

Speed Rating
Load Index
Load Range


Safety Rating is a combination of two values: Load Index and Speed Rating for P-Metric and Euro Metric tire sizes; and Load Range and Speed Rating in the case of heavy duty LT (light truck) sizes.

Speed Rating is based on the speed that the tire is designed to be driven at for extended periods of time. All tires in the in the U.S. are designed to maintain legal U.S. speed limits. The speed rating of tires must match the maximum driving speed of the vehicle.

Load Index is used on P metric and Euro Metric sized tires and denotes a tire's load-carrying capacity at a specified inflation pressure. The load index is represented by a number, the higher the Load Index Value the greater the load the tire can safely carry. Vehicle manufacturers recommend a maximum load capacity based on a recommended minimum load index.

Tire Class


Tire Class reflects how the tire will be used. There are four major categories: All-Season, Max Performance, Summer-Only and Winter-Use.

All-Season tires are suitable for year-round driving in all weather conditions.

Summer-Only & Max Performance tires are specifically designed for high-performance driving. Tire compound, tread design and speed ratings all combine to hug the road and maintain grip. Summer tires by nature are not ideal for winter driving due to lack of siding to grip winter roads.

Winter-Use tires have tread compounds and patterns that are specially designed for grip on snowy or icy road surfaces. They are not suitable for year-round use. The rubber compound used will wear more quickly on dry, summer roads. It is recommended that winter tires are fitted as a complete set to avoid potential handling issues.

Tread Type


Tread Type is an important consideration when choosing a tire. There are four main types: Passenger, Highway, All-Terrain and Mud-Terrain.

Passenger denotes a tread that is suitable for normal use, a good all-round tread for normal driving.

Highway is a tread type unique to SUV and truck tires. The tread is optimized for normal everyday driving on paved surfaces. These tires can be driven off pavement, but are not ideally suited for off road traction. Highway tread patterns deliver a quiet ride.

For light trucks and specialty vehicles, All-Terrain tread types provide better off-road traction than standard highway truck tires. There more aggressive tread tends to be less quiet on paved roads. All Terrain tires are suitable for everyday use.

Mud-Terrain treads are specifically designed with wider tread blocks and higher void ratios to gain traction in off-road conditions. Mud Terrain tires can generate higher noise levels and tend to carry lower mileage warranties than other tread designs.

UTQG - Uniform Tire Quality Grade

UTQG (Uniform Tire Quality Grade) is made up of three values: treadwear, traction and temperature.

Treadwear is a relative numeric score, based on manufacturer tests, showing how well a tire can be expected to wear compared to other tires. A higher score means a tire could be expected to wear better.

Traction measures the tire's ability to stop a vehicle on wet roads. It doesn't reflect a tire's acceleration, cornering, or hydroplaning performance. Traction grades range from AA (highest) to C (lowest).

Temperature grades the tire's ability to withstand heat build-up, with A being the highest grade and C the lowest.

A - Over 115 mph
B - Between 100 to 115 mph
C - Between 85 to 100 mph
Treadwear: 500
Traction Asphalt - gForce
AA - Above 0.54
A - Above 0.47
B - Above 0.38
C - Less Than 0.38
A - Over 115 mph
B - Between 100 and 115 mph
C - Between 85 and 100 mph

Drive / Ride Performance Characteristics

All tires have the following six performance characteristics, divided into three sets of trade-offs. In most cases, a tire may perform excellently in one characteristic but only standard in the other.
Standard Ride Comfort & Standard Handling
Handling: Get stiff side wall for precise steering and cornering but settle for a firm ride with increased road noise.
Ride Comfort: Enjoy a quiet, smooth ride but lose some cornering ability.
Standard Treadwear & Standard Traction
Traction: Stop faster in wet conditions but expect a shorter tread life.
Treadwear: Get long, uniform wear across your tread pattern but expect less traction in wet conditions.
Standard Low Rolling Resistance & Standard High Speed Performance
High-Speed Performance: Get increased performance at higher speeds but sacrifice some fuel economy.
Low Rolling Resistance: Enjoy improved fuel efficiency but expect less high-speed cornering ability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Smooth ride I did not realize how bad my old tires were until I had the Hankook tires installed on my 2009 Honda Civic. (OLD Goodrich tires: noisy, and rough ride.) Did quite a bit of research before I purchased these tires, and found coupons online. To be frank, I had never heard of Hankook. But reviews were mostly very good, and the Ventus got high performance marks, so I felt it was worth a try; so glad I did. Much quieter and smoother ride. And I like how they look. October 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Incredibly great tire! Handles well in the Rain, runs smoothly and quietly. October 11, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Big improvement over OEM on Jetta TDI My VW Jetta TDI would always lose traction on a hard take off into a turn with the factory tires, but no more! Even on wet pavement, these tires give about 75% less slip than the stock tires. I was still able to get the traction control light to come on when jamming the pedal to the floor, but I feel a lot more control with these tires. Cornering is great too: I was able to accelerate on a tight highway ramp up to 60+mph with very little understeer and without hearing any tire squeal. Great value tires! I hope they last!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome tires Great product! Very good ground traction on wet and dry weather September 12, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by so far so good i purchased the hankook tires the end of july with 48,000 mi on my 2010 honda accord. so far no complaints th ride is quiet went on a few trips long distance,drove in rain,seems to handle well. am satisfied with my purchase. September 6, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome OEM tire replacement My Mazda 3 came with Bridgestone tires, and for the most part performed well up to 50k. Then they became unbearable noisy. These Hankook tires are a dream. Quiet and they handle well in the rain. Gas mileage improved immediately. I will definitely look at they tires again in the future when I need to replace them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great tires These tires have been great. They are quiet and the car handles well. They were very good in the rain. My gas mileage improved significantly. The service team was very professional. I made the appointment online. When I arrived they gave me a time estimate and actually finished a few minutes early. June 23, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great tire Just installed these tires, but so far so good. Got a great deal through pep boys too October 7, 2015
