'Great Catch': Hankook throws out the first pitch
With the start of another Major League Baseball season comes the details of another baseball-themed promotion from Hankook Tire America Corp.
The "opening day" of the 2013 Great Catch Mail-in Rebate promotion will be Monday, April 1, when consumers will be able to take advantage of a great deal on a range of Hankook passenger and light-truck tires -- including the new ultra-high performance all-season Ventus S1 noble2.
Consumers who purchase four qualifying Hankook tires from an authorized Hankook dealer between April 1 and June 30, 2013, are eligible for a mail-in rebate of up to $80.
“We have seen a tremendous amount of excitement amongst our dealers and consumers for our baseball-themed rebate promotions," says Shawn Denlein, senior vice president of sales. "With tens of thousands of consumers participating every year, they have played a crucial role in increasing awareness of our brand here in the United States."
The Ventus S1 noble2, which was officially introduced at the 2012 SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) show and available to consumers this month, is available in 40 sizes in many popular 16-, 17-, 18-, 19- and 20-inch fitments.
Qualifying products that are part of the 2013 Great Catch Mail-in Rebate offer include:
1. Ultra-high performance summer: Ventus V12 evo. Having earned high marks from some of the most respected automotive and consumer magazines in the world, the Ventus V12 evo incorporates an innovative design that provides superior braking, handling and feedback under the most demanding driving conditions.
2. Ultra-high performance all-season: Ventus S1 noble2. With an asymmetric tread pattern, the tire incorporates a four-channel rib design for efficient water evacuation and an advanced silica rubber compound to offer "impressive" wet handling and braking. A straight rib block design applied to the outside of the tire’s contact patch helps to prevent unwanted road noise and increase cornering grip, while multiple 3D kerfs and "carving edges" provide improved winter condition traction. The Ventus S1 noble2 is backed by a 50,000-mile limited tread wear warranty.
3. Premium touring all-season: Optimo H727. Designed to provide drivers with a quiet, composed ride, the Optimo H727 comes with a 100,000-mile limited tread wear warranty, one of the best in the industry.
4. Premium highway all-season light truck/SUV: Dynapro HT. The Dynapro HT is designed to provide drivers of light trucks, vans and SUVs improved snow traction, low rolling resistance for improved vehicle fuel economy and longer tread wear. Additionally, the Dynapro HT is backed by a 70,000-mile tread wear and road hazard limited warranty in its P-metric sizes.
