Hankook fits new Ford Focus Active with Ventus Prime 3

Widening its OE partnership with Ford Motor, Hankook Tire is supplying Hankook Ventus Prime 3 for the new Ford Focus Active.

The tyre has been available in sizes 215/50R18V and 215/55R17V for the vehicle model since December 2018. Thanks to smart technologies such as freely selectable drives modes, the Ford Focus Active offers innovative handling which is boosted even further by the Ventus Prime 3.

Hankook’s latest ultra-high-performance tyre shows a good driving performance and excellent braking performance on wet and dry surfaces. Its wide four channel grooves with rapid drainage provide an optimised wet performance and, its grooves have an optimised design for each position, minimising the trade-off between wet and dry performance. Innovative compounding technologies were applied during development, making use of a high-grip silica tread compound that provides improved wet braking.

“During development of the new Ventus Prime 3, special attention was paid to a high traction and braking performance, particularly on wet road surfaces,” explained Dipl.-Ing. Klaus Krause, Head of the European Research and Development Center at Hankook. “By using an adapted asymmetrical tread, the actual contact surface between the tyre and the road has been increased by ten percent. This means the Ford Focus Active will hit the road especially safely and precisely thanks to Ventus Prime 3.”
