The Hankook Ventus R-S3′s are the ultimate Extreme Performance Summer tire for the hardcore sports car fanatic. Used on sports cars, coupe’s and high performance sedans like the 3-series E46 BMW and any other car that would be taken to the track for the weekend. Drivers wanting a race-developed street tire that meets the performance needed for autocross, drifting and/or on the race track should choose this tire. The Hankook Ventus R-S3′s are designed to bridge the gap between street performance and full on race tires by dramatically enhancing handling performance. They are perfect for the daily driver that likes to attend track days and not change their tires before and after the event.
Construction of the Hankook Ventus R-S3
Hankook’s Racing Carbon Black Silica Compound (RCSC) technology is incorporated into the Ventus R-S3 to maximize dry performance and the profile of the tire has been created to increase the tires contact with the road. The tires include a directional tread pattern incorporating big shoulder blocks and intermediate notched ribs with a single wide center rib that delivers continuous road contact, enhancing the tire’s performance features. The internal structure of the Ventus R-S3 incorporates twin steel belts that include nylon to increase strength. This optimises high-speed performance while the two-ply polyester sidewalls strengthen the tire to help resist lateral movement providing superb handling with excellent cornering stability.
The Hankook Ventus R-S3 scream performance
The name Ventus with it’s unique flame pattern that is recessed on the central and the two intermediate ribs lets drivers flaunt their super ‘hot’ high performance tires. The wide central grooves and narrow outward grooves with several lateral channels allow for rapid water evacuation increasing wet weather traction and performance. The Ventus R-S3 are a great choice offering similar grip to the Dunlop Star spec and can often be a lot cheaper.
