Hankook rolls out Ventus AS RH07

Aug. 1, 2006

Hankook Tire America Corp. has introduced the Ventus AS RH07 All Season tire for light trucks and SUVs.

The Ventus AS RH07 is available in 14 sizes, ranging from 17 inches to 22 inches.

"The RH07 has been designed specifically for consumers who demand high performance handling and all-season traction without having to sacrifice ride comfort and noise," say Hankook officials.

The tire contains six circumferential grooves for water evacuation, an open shoulder tread design, high tensile steel belts with nylon overlays and other features.

Its size range "covers a large percentage of the direct original equipment size ranges, the most popular plus sizes, and even more sizes to be introduced in the coming months," according to Bill Bainbridge, Hankook's marketing director.
