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.
