Hankook i*cept RS W442 awards
Auto Express winter tyre test 2017 – runner-up
“Whatever Hankook has done to the i*cept RS2, it has certainly worked.
“What a transformation for the Korean producer. From last spot in 2016, the RS2 is now our runner-up and came close to taking its first test win. Last time round, this tyre struggled in the wet and on snow; now it topped the tests in frozen Finland. Completing the performance turnaround, it was only beaten by overall champion Continental (WinterContact TS 860) in the five wet tests.”
The review concluded: “This poor weather prowess didn’t come at the expense of performance in the dry, as it was on the podium in both braking and handling. That strong front end was again present and was better balanced than many on the tough track that left most needing armfuls of lock.”
