Be careful with the Hankooks for the first 1000 to 2000 miles. They are very strange.

Had them on my e46 M3 and left me with a definite lack of confidence when cornering.

You'll go to turn into a fast corner, say the perfect exit ramp cloverleaf or that great sustained radius uphill sweeper on your favorite back road......and as you turn in the car initially doesn't respond. Then all of a sudden it does respond but that delay has given me the 'Oh Sh##" feeling too many times. For that split second you don't know if the tires will hookup or if you are going agricultural.

The Hankooks have very very soft sidewalls which makes them quite comfortable as a daily driver tire, but that same soft sidewall hinders the tire in cornering.

It took me over 2000 miles for these tires to start to feel somewhat decent. Not sure if that was due to the tires 'breaking in' or if it was just me slowly getting use to their odd performance. Or both.

Not a bad tire....just takes some getting use to. Share pics when done....eager to see.

I had a set of HANKOOK Ventus and they were Magnificent but I bought them used and lasted me a year and a half until I wore the rears out LOL
