Hankook Ventus ST RH06 review
What is it?
The Hankook Ventus ST RH06 is a street/sport truck summer tire* engineered for sport- and performance-oriented SUV's and trucks. Often purchased as original equipment replacement tires.
Ventus ST RH06 strengths and weaknesses?
Class leading performance and handling in both dry and wet road conditions. Dry condition cornering and steering response/feedback is particularly exceptional.
The Ventus ST RH06 also exhibits very low road noise, and long treadlife. Achieving 60,000, 70,000 miles per set is not uncommon.
Probably not the most comfortable tire in the class from a ride quality perspective, but it's by no means uncomfortable enough to be considered deficient in this area.
How does the Ventus ST RH06 compare?
The General Tire Grabber UHP gives it a run for the money, but the Ventus ST RH06 is the clear class leader at this juncture. Users rank the Ventus ST RH06 first out of seven street/sport truck summer tires.
Anything else to know?
The Ventus ST RH06 has been met with resoundingly positive feedback from customers who made the switch from a variety of OE tires. Along with top tier performance attributes, user satisfaction numbers lead the class as well.
No doubt affordability plays a role in shaping the positive user perception. The Ventus ST RH06 is one of the least expensive street/sport truck summer tires on the market, and is hundreds of dollars less per set than some of the OE tires it replaces.
Somewhat limited 17" and 20" sizes available.
We highly recommend the Ventus ST RH06. It's the standout option in the category, and you'll be hard pressed to find a better blend of performance, longevity, and both initial and long-term value.
*2016 update: The Ventus ST RH06 has been re-released as a performance all season tire for SUVs, CUVs, and light trucks. Safe to expect much the same dynamic attributes out of the newest iteration. Winter capabilities tbd...
