    Nitto 420S, Hankook Ventus, Pirelli Asimmetrico?

    I may be in the market for new rubber soon and am considering alternatives to the OEM tires, such as the Nitto 420S, Hankook Ventus RH06, or Pirelli Scorpion Zero Asimmetrico.



    Can people who are running (or have run) these tires please comment here? I'm mostly interested in the following 4 characteristics:

    1) Dry traction/performance
    2) Comfort (are they more sensitive, have too much feedback, or soft and vague?)
    3) Noise
    4) Treadlife/wear
    5) How the 3 tires mentioned compare to each other (if you have happened to run some of each brand)?

    Thanks!
    Ben

    Ben,

    Can't speak for Ventus RH06 but C&D August 09 issue compares some summer tires against a benchmark tire, the Michelin PS2, with help from Tire Rack.

    Overall Rank:
    1) Dunlop Star Spec
    2) Hankook Ventus V12 Evo
    3) Kumho Ecsta XS
    4) Bridgestone Potenza Re760
    5) BFGoodrich G-force KDW
    6) Yokohama S.Drive
    7) Falken Azenis RT-615
    8) Nitto Invo
    9) Ling Long L688
     

    Hankook PR on it

    Hope this helps

    Thanks, I saw the same article too, and decided to try the Hankook Ventus V12 Evo.  They have a $50 rebate right now too.  Have about 500 miles on them so far, and am very pleased.  Much quieter than the Continentals I had on before.  And they seem to have better grip too (they don't scrabble for traction when I floor it from a stop).
