Hankook Ventus R-S3

The Ventus R-S3 is Hankook's Extreme Performance Summer tire developed for serious sports car, sports coupe and performance sedan enthusiasts looking for a race-minded street tire that can also meet the demands of autocross, drifting and track events. The Ventus R-S3 is designed to reduce the performance gap between street and track tires by significantly improving dry traction; however like all summer tires, it is not intended to be driven through snow, on ice or in near-freezing temperatures.

Hankook Racing Carbonblack Silica Compound (RCSC) technology has been incorporated in the Ventus R-S3 to improve dry grip. The tire's profile has been developed to maximize a footprint contact patch that features a directional tread design comprised of large shoulder blocks, notched intermediate ribs and a wide center rib to deliver constant road contact and enhance the tire's handling capabilities. The Ventus name and unique flame patterns are subtly recessed into the center rib and both intermediate ribs to help drivers show off their "hot" new treads. Wide circumferential center grooves, narrower outboard grooves and multiple lateral grooves provide water evacuation for wet traction. The tire's internal structure includes two wide steel belts reinforced by nylon to provide strength and high-speed capability while two-ply polyester sidewalls help resist lateral deflection to provide responsive handling and cornering stability.
