Hankook Ventus V2 Concept2 (Our Review)
The Ventus V2 Concept2 utilizes a silica-heavy tread compound to ensure reliable traction on dry and wet pavements. The tread has a directional pattern that, with the aid of a solid center rib, ensures notably responsive steering as well as excellent braking and acceleration.
If you’re a spirited driver, you may not enjoy using the Ventus V2 Concept2 because of its soft sidewalls, which will limit your cornering capabilities. Nevertheless, the tire is still an excellent option for the average driver.
The tire features circumferential grooves that help reduce the risk of hydroplaning so that wet traction isn’t compromised. The V-tread pattern also aids in evacuating water from the tread.
The Ventus V2 Concept2 also performs nicely in the snow and on the ice, thanks to the use of 3D tread blocks and extensive siping around the tread, which help grant the tire a lot of biting edges. However, this isn’t a winter-specific tire, so we don’t recommend using it in deep snow.
The tire is also designed in such a way that it keeps road noise at bay. How so? By using the unique Noise Control Block from Hankook. So you should expect a smooth, comfortable, and noise-free driving experience.

Hankook Ventus V2 Concept2 Tire Customer Review
Raylan G. says: “I’m not the biggest fan of Hankook tires, but I have to admit, the Ventus V2 Concept2 sets the bar very high for budget tires. Yes, it’s not the most suitable for use in the snow, but then again, it’s not a winter tire, so you shouldn’t have high expectations in this department, to begin with.”Raylan G. posted (4 / 5) review
Brock T. says: “I’m not a fan of spending hundreds of dollars on tires, so finding reliable tires that aren’t costly like the Ventus V2 Concept2 is always appreciated. I’ve been using this tire for two weeks now, and I’m pleased with its overall performance. It can use some improvements when it comes to winter traction, but apart from that, it’s a very dependable tire.”Brock T. posted (4 / 5) review
