Hankook tires generally receive favorable reviews. Some performance models are very highly praised, while some of Hankook's all-season models tend to receive more negative reviews, largely due to unfavorable impressions during wet and winter driving.
Hankook's Ventus series of ultra high-performance summer tires are very well-reviewed and have been consistently popular among performance enthusiasts who cite the tires' high levels of grip and affordable price. Hankook's all-season variants of the Ventus and Optimo lines have not met with the same level of praise from consumers. Some owner reviews cite low traction on wet or snowy roads, high noise levels and poor ride quality.
