Hankook Ventus Rs2 Z212 (https://www.edgeracing.com/tire/1529/)

I'm not really enamored about Hankook stuff, but the price is so low I'm tempted to spin 'em for a while. But before I let price dominate my buying decision, I thought I'd poke about and get any opinions.

Edge ranks 'em as a direct competitor to the Falken Azenis but have yet to put a set on the track.

BimmerForums gives 'em very favorable ratings.

Nasioc is pretty "Meh" on 'em.

And Car & Driver ranked them 5th out of ten (marginal wet performance).

I think BrownMINI had a set mounted too...

Appreciate any input.:thumbsdow :tu: :confused:

I don't have any experiance with them, but I'd say give 'em a shot....There a good price, prolly woth it in the end.....The only time they (should) be crap is in the wet......other than that I think they'll perform well! :P

I am running the R-compound Z-211 Hankooks shaved on the race Mini. The Z-212 is the street/auto-cross version of the same tire. Go for a set especially if you can get a sweet "deal"!:tu:
