Tire Upgrade: Hankook Ventus V12 Evo2's
Volkswagen GTI 2.0T

Hankook Ventus V12 Evo2
The stock Pirelli’s on my 2012 GTI were shot after 40,000 miles, so I decided to switch over to the Hankook Ventus V12 Evo2’s. I went with the Hankook’s because they have been receiving a plethora of positive press and reviews lately. Tire Rack was also offering an incredible deal on them. My tires, at 225/40R18, ran my $430 with shipping after a $100 rebate from Hankook! They also came with a Tire Rack's complementary 2 year warrantee which covers all potential damage or punctures.
After beating on the Evo2’s for an afternoon, I can say I am extremely satisfied with my decision. Overall, steering feel is lighter and more responsive. Grip levels have increased exponentially and initial turn-in feels fantastic. The combination of the Evo2’s and my Eibach front and rear sway bars have transformed my GTI into a very competent handler.
