Global leading tire company Hankook Tire, an original equipment supplier to Volkswagen for many years, is equipping three further vehicles from the Wolfsburg-based car manufacturer with its tires.

Ultra-High-Performance (UHP) tire patterns Ventus S1 evo 3 will be fitted on the Golf GTI und Golf R; and Ventus S1 evo 2 SUV or evo 3 SUV on the Tiguan R.

“The tires deployed on the Volkswagen Golf GTI, Golf R, and Tiguan R, are also ideal for everyday use, thereby further expanding our portfolio of original equipment. This shows once again the wide range of our products, which are designed to fulfill the most diverse requirements,” commented Moonhwa Hong, Senior Vice President and CTO of OE Development Department at Hankook Tire.

“We placed particular emphasis on ensuring that the tires perfectly combine sportiness and the comfort required for a high level of everyday use.”

The particularly sporty R variant of the Tiguan will be exclusively fitted with the Ventus S1 evo 3 SUV which has a wheel size of 21 inches. The Ventus S1 evo 2 SUV, which has already received many awards from the European trade media, is available for the 20-inch wheel size.

Hankook Tires For VW

Both SUV patterns demonstrate a successful combination of high-level dynamic response, comfort and wet grip, especially in challenging conditions.

The Ventus S1 evo 3 is equipped with a high-strength bead core, which in combination with the reinforced sidewall ensures high driving and directional stability, as well as steering precision. These features support sporty and dynamic handling, which is particularly beneficial for the high-performance Golf GTI and R models.

In addition, the particularly light rayon carcass and the use of a special aramid composite material in the belt area reduce unwanted increases in the rolling circumference by up to 60 percent, even at very high speeds, compared to previously commonly-used materials.

This also has a positive effect on driving stability and steering precision. The special tread compound uses high-performance natural resins and ensures the necessary grip, as well as excellent traction and braking performance on both dry and wet road surfaces.

“Hankook Tire and Volkswagen’s relationship dates back to 2001. Since then, we fitted many of Volkswagen’s popular models including SUV and electric vehicle. We are glad to deepen our partnership with Volkswagen, one of the world’s leading and the most important carmakers.” said Jeongho Park, Executive Vice President and Director of OE Division at Hankook Tire.
