Porsche Cayenne factory-fitted with Hankook tyres
Hankook Tire reports that it has been supplying the Porsche Cayenne ex-works with its flagship UHP tyre, the Ventus S1 evo 3 SUV, since June. The mixed fitment sees the Cayenne wear the Ventus S1 evo 3 SUV in size 285/40 ZR 21 (109Y) XL at the front and 315/35 ZR 21 (111Y) XL at the rear.
“Porsche stands for particularly powerful sports cars with a high utility value at the same time. However, this also makes tyre development very complex,” says Han-Jun Kim, president of Hankook Tire Europe. “We are therefore very pleased with this original equipment as it impressively demonstrates the performance of our products.”
“Due to the vehicle load in combination with sporty drivability, low rolling resistance and high load capacity, it was very challenging to develop the tyre design for the Porsche Cayenne,” explains Klaus Krause, head of the European Research and Development Centre at Hankook. “The new Ventus S1 evo 3 SUV meets these requirements very well in both wet and dry conditions.”
