My wifes VW Golf was delivered with new “famous brand European tyres”. They were reasonably smooth riding, fairly quiet on smooth road surfaces and noisy on chip seal. We put up with this for a year and then on Saturday, I decided enough was enough. I ripped off the “famous brand” tyres and fitted a set of Hankook k105 asymmetric pattern tyres.
What a transformation! The car is now super smooth riding, highly comfortable, very quiet on smooth roads and noticeably quieter on chip seal. Thanks for the new car Hankook tyres !
