Driver safety is our top priority. To offer the ultimate driving experience and fully explore the on/off-road performance, our research extends well beyond tires.
Hankook’s Tire’s Ventus – ultimate performance.Ventus Product
Ventus tires have been chosen as Original Equipment tires by global leading premium car manufacturers, gaining worldwide recognition for their technological prowess.
In each and every moment, new mobility options and new concepts of moving around continue to be rolled out. To ensure a driver’s safe and convenient arrival at his/her destination under any circumstances, we continue to pioneer a wide spectrum of innovative technologies for the innovative segment, among others, in line with the changing times.
Since quieter and less-vibrating tires offer a more comfortable driving experience, our research drills deep into the details on the sound of tires. Our sound absorber technology brings into play the varying aspects of technologies, ranging from pattern construction and design to special materials, to reduce road noise in a tire and absorb the shock generated, offering a quieter and more comfortable ride.
To offset the ordeal of unexpected flats, the Hankook Runflat System (HRS) has reinforced the sidewalls of its tires to ensure their peak performance. This means that the tire retains its shape even with drops in internal air pressure. In fact, with our runflat tire technology, a punctured tire is still able to travel a good 80 km or more at up to speeds of 80km/h.
So long as a vehicle is fitted with our tires, one need not worry about nails, broken bottles or other sharp objects along the path. When a tire is punctured by external shock, the layer of special sealants in our Sealguard tires fills in the hole and effectively prevents air from escaping. Any object-induced punctures 5mm in diameter or smaller are instantly sealed to ensure hassle-free mobility even in the event of emergency.
Electric Vehicle Tire Technology
EVs are central to the unfolding path towards future mobility.
Electric vehicles (EVs) weigh considerably more and measure a stronger power output than internal combustion engine vehicles (ICEVs). Therefore, without reinforced loading capacity, grip force, and dramatically reduced noise, EVs cannot drive in optimum conditions. Hankook Tire remains dedicated towards developing advanced technologies to produce the best-in-class EV tires.

Future Mobility Technology
Adding fun and appeal in imagining what’s possible beyond tires, we transform future mobility into reality.
Airless tires which offer a safe ride, easy maintenance, and sustainable technology all began with our creative imagination for future mobility.
The airless tire is an innovative non-pneumatic product that has no air pressure unlike a normal version and is free from a flat tire.
The i-Flex is an airless tire that incorporates Hankook Tire's unique technology, and its special structural design technology completes solid yet flexible driving on the road.
Learn more about the benefits of airless tires that are non-existent in ordinary tires.
Minimized tire puncture risk
Airless tires use the structural concept that enables weight support without any air pressure and they are less likely to go flat.
Increased traction force
The multidirectional traction of airless tires delivers a progressive response to a wide variety of trajectories.
Improved ease of tire maintenance and management
Airless tires require no maintenance due to the absence of air pressure and maintains even wear patterns to increase the driving range.
Increased ease of the changing tires
It is quick and easy to remove and mount a tire due to its structure.
