SERVICE DESCRIPTION

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

Performance

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 & Excellent 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 & Excellent 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 & Excellent 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 4.5 out of 5 by 22 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Tires This are very quiet tires, and they perform well in the rain. I bought these for my 2010 Honda Fit Sport, and they are much better than the stock run-flats! August 26, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Fun and knowledgeable about their job Kinda hated to miss the promotion where you get a Visa gift card. My roommate got the tires and an alignment for the price I paid for my tires alone. It was an emergency so I had to get them but was counting on the refund. August 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Hankook Tires for my Beetle Went in to Pep Boys for a different set of tires (next level down I believe) and was told during installation that tires I wanted was not available and if I'd like to get these instead which was told to be better then the set I wanted. Pricier then the others but said yes. Drove home and immediately felt the difference. Tires seem "right" for this car and much more balanced. Handling around curves and in rain was better then expected. So far so good. July 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by best tire ever for the money Handles very well on my 3rd generation eclipse v6. Also pretty quiet for a UHP tire. It has rained hard and much in PA the past 10 days and the tires have kept constant contact with the road. I like them so much I will put on my accord v6 when needed. They look nice on the wheels also. When purchased under by 3 get 4th free tires were less than $70 each. Don't hesitate..JUST BUY THEM! July 11, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good tire A good tire for a reasonable price July 2, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Can't Beat The Price Got these on the buy three, get one free deal. Tires are still new, so I can't judge treadwear yet (and I haven't driven in any rainy conditions). But the handling is fine and road noise is far less than I expected for a performance tire. May 13, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Smooth quiet ride / soft in corners 2007 Mazda 6i - The first thing I noticed about these tires is the quiet ride. Excellent. They also seem to ride smooth; I don't feel the little bumps as much. The trade-off there is in cornering; it feels like the rear end is a little loose in hard cornering (not bad tho). Overall dry traction is excellent. Wet traction is great for stops, good for acceleration, and average in the turns. Haven't driven in the snow yet. Overall, I like these tires. I drive somewhat aggressively and am pretty hard on tires. These are good tires at a good price. Perfect for your daily driver. June 24, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Tires, Great Value Tires went on a 2011 VW GTI Have previously owned Pirellis. They wore out very quickly ( got about 18-20k miles on them) and expensive to replace. I've also had experience with Continentals on another VW ...great tire but expensive. These tires (Hankook Ventus V2 Concept) from Pep Boys perform like significantly more expensive brands but wear very well. Pricing was excellent as a result of the of the special offer of buy 3 get 1 free. Would definitely purchase again. June 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good price; good handling; sporty These tires were offered at a great price. They seem to have an aggressive tread pattern designed for rain and snow which was my main concern for my teen driver. Haven't noticed any road noise or other negative issues. Can't comment on wear...only used for one month. May 7, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent tires I have had these tires on the car for a few weeks now, and the ride is much smoother than with the OEM tires. They also cost less than the OEM tires, not considering the "buy three, get four" deal, which made it an even better deal. May 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by A very nice Tire on wet roads and Quiet My VW Jetta is known for front wheel road noise. This tire is very quiet, The Tire is great in the rain, and handles great on dry pavment. Over all a nice tire for the price.The team at Pep boys in Hamburg had the 4 of them installed in about 1 Hr. I could no be more pleased with the service. April 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great value performance tire After putting over 50k miles on a set of Hankook V4's on my 2004 Mustang, I decided to go with Hankook's again. The V2's are a great value performance tire and I am pleased with the handling and low road noise so far. April 22, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by a GREAT deal The tires look and work just as good as more expensive tires. March 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awsome grip in wet and dry Replaced the OEM Goodyear RS-A's and I immediately noticed a big difference. It has been raining a lot recently and with my old tires it was very easy to spin the tires and lose traction. With the V2 concepts, I still have to break them loose even with aggressive acceleration. I have total confidence in driving through heavy rains. No snow experience-I live in Florida. Dry traction is also excellent. On-ramps that I used to take at 35MPH max now can be taken at 40 MPH with no tire squeal at all. I only have 500miles on these so unable to comment on Longevity.
