Hankook Ventus R-S4 Z232


Aggressive directional pattern applied in succession of Ventus RS3. Optimized tread contact rate per block the product maintains the best block stiffness at both straight and circuit driving.

Tire Structure:

  • Reinforcement for shoulder nylon cover (You can experience excellent handling and cornering performance by minimizing deformation of shoulder tread by setting up reinforced nylon cover around the corner which endures the highest load in cornering. Moreover, we reduce the problem that the load on the shoulder is weighted due to the air pressure is relatively low in case of products which pursue Fast LapTime. In case of high camber setting vehicle, it reduces partial side wear and unusual wear of inside tread).
  • New carbonblack and silica type racing compound. (Improved wet performance by adding silica. Increased stiffness and heat generation of compound by applying functional resin).
  • 2 Layer joint-less nylon full cover (Stabilizes tread for long life and optimizes handling).
  • Beadfiller + Side Reinforcement (Handling).
  • Wide 2 steel belt (Tread handling).
  • Balanced carcass line design (Minimized deformation on side and stiffened side).
