Hankook Radial RA-18 is a summer tyre designed for vans. It has a universal, symmetrical tread, which performs very well on dry and wet surfaces. Three wide grooves and many lamellae provide rapid evacuation of water from the front of the tyre and protection against aquaplaning, which may occur when the tread cannot cope with an excess of water. Effective dispersion of water is ensured even at lower temperatures thanks to its flexible rubber compound, which takes care of balanced performance and optimum traction, irrespective of the weather.
The engineers behind the Hankook Radial RA-18 have increased performance and safety during dynamic and sporty driving. This was possible by designing modern shoulder blocks and innovative grooves located in the area of tyre which comes into contact with the road. Focusing on its intended use, the tyre was further strengthened. In particular in the area of tread blocks, which have a robust design that increases tyre strength by up to 12% (compared to previous model of Hankook). The engineers also managed to decrease its rolling resistance by using a rubber compound with reduced weight. This resulted in reduced fuel consumption and emissions into the atmosphere. These features make Hankook Radial RA-18 an environmentally friendly product. This tyre is the perfect solution for demanding drivers who want tyres for their vans to be durable and reliable.
