Hankook Kinergy 4S2 (H750) – second generation all-season tyre Korean manufacturer
If you are looking for an all-season tyre, which, by the way, will give you more driving pleasure than the usual models in this category, you will surely like the new Hankook Kinergy 4S2 (H750).
In the context of Korean giant Hankook, the phrase “the latest technology” deserves special attention. The company, which debuted on the market in 1941, has established itself as one of the most important tyre manufacturers. Nowadays, it successfully cooperates with the largest car concerns and racing federations (such as DTM, i.e. the world’s largest car race).
It is no secret that this position was achieved by focusing on innovation and investing hundreds of millions of dollars in research and development. Currently, Hankook has five research and development centers located in Asia, Europe and the United States, and further construction is planned. It is planned to take the Korean giant to an even higher level.
Technologies and solutions
Before we move on to specific solutions, which can be found in Kinergy 4S2 (H750), we should first mention the concept of “Kontrol” technology. It is a set of assumptions implemented in each model under the guidance of Korean designers.
In practice, the Koreans create tyres that are durable and maximize control and performance in all conditions. It also reduces rolling resistance and carbon dioxide emissions for comfort, economy and ecology. The ultimate goal is the highest possible level of integration between driver, vehicle and road.
Test of Kinergy 4S 2 (H750) tyres
The model in the test of the famous industry magazine Auto Bild since 2018 was rated “good” and took fifth place.

The Hankoook Kinergy 4S2 is an all-season tyre in which the manufacturer paid the greatest attention to safety in virtually any environment – from dry sunny surface, driving in rain, to snow and ice. It is designed for passenger cars with a thin sports claw – the load index assumes the preservation of all the advantages even at 240 km / h. A wide range of products includes models with a diameter of R14-R17.

Ensuring safety and grip in all conditions required a lot of work from designers. As you can see, the results were satisfactory. An exquisite drawing with wide side grooves at a large angle diverts two to three times more water than conventional solutions. As a result, the risk of aquaplaning is significantly reduced.
In addition, the tread has concave connectors between the blocks, which increase the peripheral stiffness. In all-season buses, this parameter is particularly important and guarantees the appropriate level of control. What about the winter conditions? With sharpened edge grooves at the sides of the tread, the manufacturer has been able to provide effective protection against blocking wheels on ice and snow.
Tyre structure. The advanced tread also matches the advanced structure of the tyre itself. The unique silica compound based on natural ingredients provides excellent traction at low temperatures and on wet roads. In turn, thanks to the seamless reinforced headband and refined polyester jacket, in addition to the strength, we were able to further increase the stiffness, the role of which, as we mentioned, is crucial. To this is added a strong board core and special fillers, which ensure stability, better handling and fit to the rims.
Decent noise, economy and short braking distances on wet roads. The EU label shows how advanced the model is. Rolling resistance at category C means fuel savings. Tyres from this segment rarely have such a high classification. Moreover, the Hankook Kinergy 4S2 works when braking on wet roads – Category B ensures calm and safety in difficult conditions. All this is given in a convenient form, that is with a low noise level of 71 or 72 dB.
The Hankook All Season Tyre Warranty South Korean manufacturer covers its tyres with a lifetime warranty. The only decisive factor is the minimum allowable groove depth of 1.6 mm. The scope of the warranty covers construction, material and manufacturing defects.
