Hankook ventus v12?

Can anyone give me any reviews on these tires? I want an everyday tire that can grip and corner really well. Car puts down 435rwhp so I want a good tire. Car is 2011 5.0 with brembo package and I'm shooting for the 275/40/19. Thank you!

I'm in the same boat. My Pirellis in the rear only lasted 11,000 miles. I've been looking at tires for a month now and can't decide. I don't want to spend more than $250 a tire. My Pirellis in the front are good. I might just get Nitto NT05's for the back. Although, they only come 275/35/19.

Re: Hankook ventus v12?

the v12's are pretty good tires especially for the money, just kind of hard to get a hold of because they are in such high demand

With that power they will suck for anything under 50mph. Plain and simple.

For a pure street tire least a 555 or invo. Once get over 400whp it starts to get hard to get a street tire to hook. And once get above 500whp no street tire is really going to hook. Specially from a dig or low speed roll.

V12s are really good street tires but, I think they are a touch soft in the carcass for this power level. I think they'll erase relatively quickly.

For a decent cheap street tire i like the bfg kdw (hooks decently and us fair priced) the continental extreme contact kd is not bad either.

Re: Hankook ventus v12?

I been running hankooks v12 and the tire itself is good.245/40 front and 285/35 back.they are 19's.But has been said......You will struggle still yet for grip.I have to leave easy and when i stab it it still spins and into 2nd.You have to roll into throttle for a decent run but losing precious ground if you are racing or track.I will probably stay on hankooks for DD and use my other wheels to put DR or slick on for the runs

Nt05 wear faster but stick a little better. They already told me the invo's will get best of 15,000 miles and as bad as 7,000.

Im real happy with my Falken FK452's. Not quite as grippy as the Nitto Invo, not as expensive either, but a great option for a DD. They are much grippier than the Goodyears I replaced.

How did you like them? Other than being too narrow?
