Hankook Winter I*pike RS W419 195/55R16XL 91T BSW
The Hankook Winter i-Pike RS W419 tire is a studdable winter tire for passenger cars. With good snow and ice traction, fuel efficiency, and a low price, the tire offers great value. A special silica compound delivers the wet traction and lower rolling resistance for better fuel economy, but without any compromise to long tread-life. Efficient evacuation of water and slush is accomplished with a directional tread design, increasing both wet traction and hydroplaning resistance. 3D biting edges thanks to lateral grooves and high-density siping contribute to the increased traction and stability on snow and slippery surfaces.
Improved uniformity are accomplished through a strong single strand bead wire that firmly seats the tire on the wheel, while the high-hardness bead filler improves the handling and steering response. Tire deformation is minimized with greater sidewall stiffness from the equilibrium casing, and an extra wide steel belt layer underneath the tread that is resistant to the forces of centrifigual force.
My favorite winter tire!
I have used this brand, model for each car I have owned and will continue to use. Great tire. Sidewall is stiffer than your normal winter tire. You don't have the "floaty" feeling when you are driving on the highway at speed without snow.
Best Winter-Tread Tire I have ever owned.
Have run this tire type for years on my 4wd trucks (all year long), so I got my wife a set for her front-wheel-drive car, she loves them. Great traction, snow or ice, tread holds up well, and quiet in the summer time.
