Hankook has introduced the perfect light truck and SUV tyre for all-season driving in a wide variety of sizes for both direct Original Equipment replacement as well as for plus-sizing applications – the Ventus AS RH07.
Designed for exceptional comfort, low noise and all-season traction on virtually any road and in practically any weather condition, the Ventus AS RH07 is a smart addition to Hankook’s Ventus line of high performance and all-season radials. With a U.T.Q.G. of 460/A/A comes in high rim diameter sizes of 17, 18, 20 and 22 inches. The tyre also features Hankook Tyre’s Road Hazard Warranty.
The Ventus AS RH07 features six circumferential grooves to actually cool the tyre, improve responsiveness, and jettison water from the tread. The solid centerline enhances stability while high-density sipes give the tyre hundreds of minute grooves for better traction and overall performance. The open shoulder design lets water escape from the grooves, while stepped groove walls provide additional edges for better grip.
The RH07 is a genuine 4wd tyre for tarmac driving and its treadwear rating of 420 is an indicator of the tyres high mileage potential relative to other tyres in this category.
The new Ventus AS RH07 also features a nylon belt overlay to strengthen the tread and reduce belt movement. Extra-wide high tensile steel belts provide precise handling and absorb shock. The specially formulated sidewall compound resists aging, cracking and abrasion, while the rim protection bar shields against scuffing and obscuring the rim flange.
