Audi SQ8  TDI comes with Hankook fitment

Hankook will be an OE supplier for the new Audi SQ8 TDI.

21- and 22-inches tyres are fitted on the car. Two Hankook tyre lines are used for the four-door SUV: the ultra-high-performance summer and winter treads Ventus S1 evo 3 SUV and Winter I cept evo 2 SUV respectively in 285/45 R21 113 Y XL and V XL. In future, a 22-inch summer tyre dimension (Hankook Ventus S1 evo 3 SUV in 285/40 R22) will follow.

“We are very pleased that the Audi SQ8 TDI will also come off the production line with Hankook tyres, among others,” explains Hyunjun Cho, Head of OE Division. “As a long-standing partner, we have been equipping many particularly sporty Audi models. As with the Audi Q8, we are proud to also be supplying our modern ultra-high performance tyres for the Audi SQ8 TDI.”

“The essential requirement in the development process was the tyre design. As with the Audi Q8, the Audi SQ8 TDI as a large SUV generally has a higher vehicle load index to provide the vehicle load to be fulfilled in combination with the possible high speeds. The durability of the tyre construction was of course particularly important. In addition, we paid special attention to the required vehicle attributes in both wet and dry conditions,” explains Moonhwa Hong, Vice President of OE Development Department.
