Hankook Tire Group is based in Seoul, South Korea. It was founded in 1941 and has grown over the years to be the seventh largest tire manufacturer in the world. Today Hankook tires come as standard original equipment on certain models of Ford and General Motors automobiles and on every new Hyundai model. Besides tires, Hankook makes batteries, alloy rims and brake pads.

Hankook tires are available in all of the normal categories, including passenger car lines, truck and bus lines, light truck and winter tires. In addition, however, Hankook manufactures a complete line of racing tires for the track, Rallys or the street/track.

Hankook's passenger car tires include the Optimo, the Radial, the Mileage Plus and the Optimo. The Optimo is an H-rated all-season tire balancing comfort and performance. It is intended for touring sports cars and luxury performance vehicles. The Mileage Plus model delivers superior treadwear properties.

For high performance tires, turn to the Hankook Ventus line. Ventus models were engineered for improved durability and to minimize distortion at high speeds and high temperatures. Its profile and structure deliver optimal ground contact pressure for great handling at high speeds and on wet and dry road conditions.

If you need tires for your light truck or SUV, Hankook has the Dynapro and Dynamic models. The Dynapro ATM is a premium, aggressive all-terrain tire with a unique tread pattern. It delivers excellent grip and acceleration on and off-road.

If racing is your thing, Hankook has three models of Ventus tires designed specifically for you. They make one slick tire for track or drag racing and two Z rated tires that are designed exclusively for use on wet track surfaces.

When you are in the market for a replacement set of tires, look to Hankook for your next set. They may not be as well known as Goodyear or Bridgestone, but they are fast becoming one of the most popular tire brands in the world.
