Hankook is OE on new Audi models

Hankook Tire Co. Ltd.’s Ventus S1 evo2 has been selected as the original fitment for the third generation of the Audi TT and TTS models.

The vehicles will be fitted with the Hankook’s high-performance tire in sizes 225/50R17, 245/45R17 or 245/35R19 as standard or optional equipment, depending on the engine version.

The company says the Ventus S1 evo2 is produced in Europe and demonstrates optimum performance even under demanding conditions with its successful combination of precise handling, outstanding braking ability and high directional stability.

The use of high tensile yet extremely lightweight steel cord material means the Ventus S1 evo2 enables highly dynamic driving even under permanently challenging conditions. The Ventus S1 evo2 provides significantly reduced rolling resistance and low rolling noise, according to Hankook.

“The Audi TT stands for excellent design as well as dynamics and innovation, and is thus a perfect match for our flagship Ventus S1 evo2 tires,” says Seung Hwa Suh, vice chairman and CEO of Hankook Tire.

“The very latest innovative technologies were used for the development of our high-end tire in order to effectively support the vehicle’s character. Therefore, we are very pleased to be able to supply original fitment tires for this sporty Audi design icon.”
