As a successor to the track-proven Ventus R-S2 Z212, and compliment to the Ventus Z214 racing tires, Hankook Tire has applied its latest motorsports technology to improve dry-grip performance by 30 percent; further enhancing the tire's handling capabilities. The profile has been developed to maximize the footprint contact patch. In addition, based on the great success in 2007-08 of Hankook DOT R Compound tires in competition, the compound technology responsible for winning on the track has been applied in the new Ventus R-S3.
The Ventus R-S3 Z222 also features a unique "flame" design which is molded into the tread that will be aesthetically pleasing to consumers looking to show off their vehicle's "hot" new shoes.
As drifting, Time Attack and autocross competitions continue to gain popularity across North America and influence the marketplace, Hankook looks to deliver category-leading performance both on the street and on the track. The new Ventus R-S3 Z222 will prove to be a great investment for enthusiast consumers, delivering a high quality UHP street tire that seamlessly meets the demands of on-track motorsports performance.
