Hankook Icebear W 442 features

The presented tyre is marked with 3PMSF symbol (Three Peak Mountain Snow Flake). It means that the tyre meets the EU requirements for winter tyres. The symbol is awarded after thorough tests of a tyre model in terms of snow grip.

Hankook Icebear W442 is a tyre designed and optimized for driving on snow or ice. It delivers an excellent gripping performance on snow and ice and the traction is admirable. Extra sipes allow for rugged responsiveness in wintery conditions and comfort and safety are enhanced. It’s a mid-price tyre which delivers a decent spec for its price-range.

Hankook Icebear W442 harnesses four straight groove channels to quickly remove slush and water away from the tyre. This enhances the grip and traction on snow-covered or wet roads. The tyre is therefore able to make better contact with the road, ensuring safer driving in difficult under-tread conditions.

Hankook Icebear W442 uses a zigzag tread pattern. This design is engineered to specifically enhance grip and traction on snow-covered roads. This pattern is complemented by the tyre having a wide tread. This ensures that the tyre surface area is maximized and road contact is enhanced, which is important on icy roads.

The tyre pattern of the Hankook Icebear W442 exploits Wave Kerf Technology. The kerf is positioned in a diagonal direction on the tyre to ensure a premium gripping performance on slippery surfaces.

The tyre also encourages eco-friendliness by low rolling resistance. Few carbon emissions are produced, and this feature also helps with fuel economy of the vehicle.

Hankook was formed in 1941, and is a Korean tyre manufacturer. It produces tyres for a variety of vehicles, including cars, vans and trucks. It produces economy-range tyres which are its speciality. Hankook opened a branch in the Netherlands in 2006, and the European Market gets more releases from Hankook every year.

    The Hankook Icebear W 442 that I assess are new tyres which have not done 600 miles yet, fitted to a Passat B5 4Motion. Pros: the tyres are cheap, quiet, easy to balance. Cons: the tyres have huge rolling resistance, fuel consumption has increased by 1.5 l/100 km.

    Hankook Icebear W 442 tyres provide good grip in wet and dry conditions, good traction in the corners. They do a great job on slush Very loud in temperatures above zero. They have a decent price and cool abrasion and look.

    Hankook Icebear W 442 is a very quiet tyre, I was stunned, because previously I only used premium tyres. I've read about DTM races and Hankook tyres, and I decided to test them on my Volvo - and I'm impressed!

    Hankook Icebear W 442 are great tyres, very quiet, provide good grip in cornering and braking on all surfaces. The tyre was a first fit in a VW Caravelle.
