The model ensures a high acoustic comfort due to the specially profiled tread the sounds emitted by the tyre are dampened very quickly, which results in a silent and comfortable drive. The tyre is made of a durable and light compound including silica, which features a high resistance to mechanical damage. The reduced structural weight helped to achieve a lower rolling resistance, which translates into reduced fuel consumption and, thus, cost savings. Additionally, the compound features a high resistance to extreme temperatures, so it offers the full performance even during a very fast drive. Traction stabilisation and a good lateral grip is provided by the robust blocks located in the tyre shoulders.
The modern structure guarantees better steering and optimum distribution of pressures at the entire surface of Hankook K107. As a result, the tread wears evenly and the tyre offers its full parameters throughout its life. The structure of Hankook K107 also contributes to an improved traction and helps maintain a correct driving track, and with its excellent grip your dynamic manoeuvres (such as a lane change or sharp braking) will always be safe.
