Hankook’s Ventus S1 Evo 3 Named as Original Equipment on BMW i4


Hankook is equipping the BMW i4 Gran Coupé with its ultra-high-performance (UHP) tyres

Hankook Will Supply Tyres for the BMW i4

Hankook's flagship summer tyre, the Ventus S1 evo 3, will be used on the i4. It comes in all-positions and mixed tyres from 18 to 19-inch in both standard and runflat options.

It is particularly complex to calibrate a tyre for an electric vehicle like the BMW i4. Hankook significantly expanded their research in this area a few years ago and this effort is now paying off. By supplying the product for the BMW i4, Hankook is strengthening their presence in the electric sports car sector.

The Ventus S1 evo 3 combines a reinforced sidewall with a high-strength bead core, resulting in sporty, dynamic driving performance and precision steering. In addition, the ultra-light rayon carcass and special aramid composite material in the belt area partly reduce unwanted expansion in the rolling circumference, even at very high speeds, which likewise has a positive effect on driving stability and precision steering. The special tread compound made from high-performance natural resins guarantees the necessary grip and excellent traction and braking performance.
