Hankook’s Ventus S1 evo2 to be fitted on BMW 4-Series
The recently launched 4-Series Coupé is the sixth model by the BMW Group to be fitted with Hankook tyres, following on from the MINI, the BMW 1-, 3-, and 5-Series as well as the X5, said the South Korean tyre maker.
“We are pleased to continuously intensify our cooperation with the BMW Group,” said Seung Hwa Suh, Vice Chairman and CEO of Hankook Tire. He also added, “Supplying tyres to the new 4-Series Coupé marks yet another, important milestone for us as it is the first time we are supplying tires to the BMW Group that not only have been developed in Europe but also are supplied directly from our European plant.”
Hankook said that the high-end flagship Ventus S1 tyres already convinced the Munich-based premium car manufacturer engineers as OEMs for the recent BW 3 and 5-series. Even under demanding conditions, the tyre stands out for its successful combination of driving dynamics and comfort features as well as wet grip and rolling resistance performance.
