The K105 Ventus Prime tyre is Hankook’s first mass market asymmetric tyre and has been received with much acclaim world wide. Its Asymmetric tread design provides better safety and comfort, the outer side of the pattern design gives more contact area on the roads, so ensures better grip and good braking characteristics even when cornering. It also gives reduced tyre noise. The design of the k105’s tread center and inner side provide good aquaplaning and dry traction performance.
Its Hankook developed Silica compound formulation provides better grip performance and low rolling resistance for better performance, especially on wet roads with it improved grip and traction.
I remember selling the k105 to a Megatyre customer who had restored a 1963 Sunbeam Tiger V8. Its almost unbelievable, but the car was originally shod in size 155 r13 tyres! Imagine that with a 4.5 litre V8 under the bonnet! This car ended up with mags and was fitted with 195 50 15 k105s and has since seen quite a few miles, on and off the track.
Significantly the Hankook K105’s cope extremely well with the Sunbeam Tigers torque and power and have tamed the beast on and off the track; and they will work wonders on your high performance front wheel drive vehicle too!
