Today we are launching a new category of tyre; a high mileage eco tyre in eleven 13 to 15 inch sizes targeting family and passenger car use. Previously, tyres like the Kinergy EX had availability restricted to expensive prestige vehicle sizes with the H308 being the first genuine Eco tyre to bring the benefits of this technology to the sub 16 inch market.
The new and very green Hankook Kinergy EX H308 is a brilliant combination of design and technology addressing the primary concerns of this categories drivers, fuel economy and long high mileage tyre life. Allied with high dispersion Silica tread compound enhanced outstanding performance, and quietness and comfort standards expected of modern tyres, the H308 is sure to win applause from drivers of modern passenger and family cars.
Also, the Hankook H308 should also be well suited to the requirements of older vehicles; I am fitting a set of 185 70 14’s to my 1969 MGB to replace a set of Hankook K406 tyres which have been on the car for 10 years.The K406’s, which were fitted in 2004, have hardly got any wear but sadly have to go due to safety considerations dictating that all tyres 10 years old and over be replaced. So I am looking forward to driving this very old car with these latest technology H308 tyres over the next 10 years!
The next set of tyres will be due in April 2024!
