hankook ventus v12 evo has anyone tried these b4

Hi guys, I'm need of new tires and was thinking of going with the hankook ventus v12 evo. I want good handling n sticky tires for a daily driver. Car is a 2011 5.0, wheel size is 255/40/19. Making a good amount of power to the wheels so I want nice tires. Thanks!

What is a good amount of power to the wheels? If you are over 500whp then wasting money going with them tires. I woudl say go with the Nitto Invo's. If making over 600whp go with a drag radial.

They are great tires but, I think the 5.0 is pushing them a bit hard power and weight wise. I think you'll erase them pretty quick as the compound is fairly soft. They ride very well, are quiet and have at least as much grip as the Pirellis PZeros do.

These tires actually cured alot of the massive torque and bump steer on my 300 horse Mazdaspeed 3 so, I like them alot but, I know their limits.

Pirellis are not that great. Had the pzero summer ones and they lasted 8000km without bagging or burnouts. I'm trying the new Bridgestone all season pole position tires. A bit more than Pirelli but seem to be doing better

Yeah, my Speed came with the catastrophically mismatched regular Bridgestone RE50s. Those tires were useless unless the temps got above 30 degrees C for a long time and the carcass was so square-shouldered it ran after everything on the road like a chihuahua on Red Bull. You'd figure with that they'd be tough but the Speed's torque ate those tires up in about 10,000 miles. I was happy to get rid of them.

They ain't any better on my friend's 135i, either. Those are run-flats and they are even stiffer than the standard 50s.

They should be a decent tire then. Most Lilly best bang for the Buck tire. Performance/tread wear/dry-wet traction.

I just put them on my car with my new wheels. Posted some pics in a thread I started yesterday. I was thinking of going with the Nitto Invo's, but then I saw a Car & Driver test that ranked these second and the Invo's were like 6th or something. The ride is good, they're quiet, etc. I'm sure they won't last that long, but at least they weren't $400 or $500 a piece like some tires.

Just switched to nittos from pirellis pzero's I can Say honestly they are the stickiest tire I've ever drove on, it's hard for me to get sideways even when I try they just bond with the asphalt so well.also,they do very well in the rain with my traction control on,very safe.
