Hankook selected as OE supplier to Audi

Hankook has been selected as a supplier for the new Audi TT and TTS (pictured) models. These will be fitted with Ventus S1 evo² tires in sizes 225/50 R17, 245/45 R17 or 245/35 R19 as standard or optional equipment, depending on the engine version.

The tire features a DTM-derived contour with a multi-tread radius for equal ground contact pressure and high weight reduction through the application of ultra-light yet highly durable steel cord material. It also features an all-new tread compound made using the latest generation mixing technologies. The extension of mixing times at reduced temperatures significantly increases the bonding rate and achieves more targeted cross linking between carbon and rubber molecules for reduced heat generation during driving.

Meanwhile, Hankook is also supplying tires for the racing version of the TT and is the official partner for the new Audi Sport TT Cup. The international championship, based on the newly developed Audi TT racing version, will start at selected events within the framework of the DTM from 2015. The cars will be fitted with Hankook Ventus Race tires.
