Hankook is the first tire company that appeared in the Korean tire market. It was established in 1941 under the name "Chosun Tire Company". The organization experienced significant growth in the 1960s-1970s after a successful recovery from World War II. Hankook received its current name only in 1968. By the way, Hankook, in a literal sense, signifies Korea.

Today Hankook works in several main fields. The first is the Tire field – it includes the tires, batteries, and tubes production and selling. The company makes tires for such types of vehicles as cars, autobuses, pickup trucks, industrial cars, and SUVs. The second field of activity is the Non-Tire field. It concerns the production and selling of the tire hardware and tire-and-machinery molds. Besides, Hankook is dedicated to providing the services of vehicle maintenance and offices rent.

The Korean tire maker produces tires of various sizes and weather seasons. As for the brands, the company works with such trademarks as Ventus, Dynapro, Kinergy, Laufenn, and others.

Let's imagine you're a driver of a sports car and you're searching for the best summer tires for your vehicle. Here, Hankook offers you to choose the Ventus V12 evo (K110) tires. They are the ideal mix of comfort and management both on wet and dry surfaces. The tires are equipped with Hankook's High Tg Polymer & Specific Resin compound that's fitted into directional tread style with the Multiple Tread Radius profile. Together these components are matched to notched shoulder ribs, free tread blocks located in the middle, and a steady center rib. All of this helps to unite the strong braking and expected management. Also, the tires contain broad circumferential and lateral grooves in the shape of Y, which allow straitening water through the tire footprint to avoid hydroplaning. 

 For the drivers who like to ride off-road, Hankook created the Dynapro AT-M tires. The company claims these tires are the best for 4X4 cars for both on and off-road driving. The tires are protected from punctures, and with the wraparound tread, they receive a rugged appearance. To avoid the impacts when riding off-road, Hankook equipped the tires with a reinforced under-tread gauge. The Dynapro AT-M tires also have two-step wave-shaped kerfs, which help deliver great grip on wet and slippery roads and extend the tires' lifespan.

 If you look for the tire mix of high productivity, quiet and cozy driving, Hankook has something for you to offer. For luxurious vehicles, the Korean tire producer made the tires with such a combination - Kinergy GT H436. Hankook added the silica tread compound of the high grip with the M + S rating for this type of tire. It provides extra traction on snow, wet and dry surfaces. The tires also contain a broad reinforced steel belt layer, which improves handling and turning. Besides, the Kinergy tires are equipped with four circumferential grooves that move out water from the tires and enhance traction on wet roads. For avoiding hydroplaning, these tires also have the lateral tread grooves matched to the circumferential ones.
