View Full Version : Hankook vs nexen

10-18-12, 10:10 PM
Im still thinking about my exact tire size however, It will be something very close to a 245 30 22. My question is which tire is going to be better all around (with an emphasis on road noise) the nexen n3000 or a hankook ventus v4 es h105. I dont want my car to sound like it has snow tires as I go down the road.

Aggressive tread patterns are usually noisier. (Think of knoby vs. highway tires.) Softer compounds sometimes also get noisier as they wear faster.

Nexen tires are not good, period.

I like the Hankooks. Road noise levels are good with them too.

THIS!!! Do NOT buy nexen.

I put 2 of them on my SiLs car abd the sidewall was coming apart in less than 10k. They did not stand behind the tires either.

I've used hankook and never had any issue with them.
