Daventry, UK - Hankook says its Optimo 4S has been voted best all-season tyre by the Auto Express tyre guide.
The South Korean company said its Optimo 4S tyre is suitable for motorists who do not want to fit a set of winter tyres to their vehicles.
The Auto Express winter tyre guide saw a range of nine winter and all-season tyres put to the test in a series of challenges on snow, in the wet and in dry conditions, Hankook said in a 21 Oct news release.
The company said the tyre was hailed a 'Jack-of-all-trades' by Auto Express magazine beating winter tyre rivals in dry braking performance and showing impressive handling on the track, particularly in the wet and dry tests.
â€œWe appreciate that winter tyres are not for everyone therefore Hankook's Optimo 4S all-season tyre provides the perfect solution to those who require the convenience of an all-year round tyre, â€œsaid Tony Lee, managing director of Hankook Tyre UK Ltd.
â€œAs we have all seen, particularly of late, the UK often faces a host of unpredictable seasonal extremes to contend with, Hankook are therefore proud to offer a range of tyres to suit everyone,â€ Lee said.
