    Hankook Ventus R-S3 Disected

    Hankook R-S3 dissected after nine track days--a few under-inflated runs killed the outer tread. But for all you geeks out there, like me, I sectioned this one to see how much rubber was left beneath the cap tread--the sticky layer. As you can see not much, but more then I thought.
