Audi goes for Hankook on Q8

By John SwiftIndustry News26th September 2019

Hankook has won another contract with Audi. This time to fit the new Audi Q8 premium SUV with its ultra-high performance Ventus S1 evo 3 SUV and Winter i*cept evo 2 SUV models.

Han-Jun Kim, President of Hankook Tyre Europe, said: “We are very pleased that our products have again been selected for a new Audi model. Even as a long-standing supplier to Audi, it is an honour to have been named original equipment supplier for the top-model of the Q-Series. In addition, we are proud that we will supply the full range of our treads for the Q8 to various markets.”

The Ventus Si evo 3 performs better under the extra weight of large SUVs. This is because it is made with ‘bead packing’, a special nylon material in the sidewall area which increases their strength.

The two-layer carcass and the use of an aramid composite material give better high speed stability and a longer lifespan because it generates less heat.

A special tread compound using high-performance natural resins helps the A8 have a sporty, dynamic drive on both wet and dry roads.
