Hankook Tires designed the Kinergy PT to be a long wearing (tread life), Standard Touring, All-Season tire. With a 90,000 mile limted tread warranty, the Kinergy PT combines long life and sporty good looks, with a predictable and comfortable drive for sedans, minivans and Crossover vehicles. For these and similar applications, the Hankook PT is used as an original equipment replacement. Hankook tires can be found on Ford, GM, Hyundai and Toyota cars and trucks, who use these tires as Original Equipment tires for their new vehicles.
Using a blend of internal and external features, the Hankook Kinergy PT all season tire is engineered to provide more stable traction, quicker steering responses, and a more comfortable ride throughout the year. Hankook’s all season tread compound for the Kinergy PT, has additives that ensure the rubber remains pliable and maintains its grip when exposed to a wider range of temperatures, from summer’s heat to the near freezing winter temperatures.
The specialized tread compound of the Hankook Kinergy PT tire is molded into a symmetric design with features that work together to provide more traction and handling on dry, wet and lightly snow-covered roads. One advantage of a symmetric tread pattern is that these tires can be rotated in all four positions, which improves driving performance and extends tread life. Large, independent tread blocks maintain contact with the dry road for enhanced steering response in summer. Four circumferential grooves evacuate water away from the beneath tires footprint, improving traction and preventing hydroplaning on wet roads. The Kinergy PT is also equipped with a higher density of sipes that increase the number of biting edges and provide better grip on colder winter roads, giving you the confidence to drive safely on lightly snow-covered roads.
The feature packed Hankook Kinergy PT performs superbly throughout the year, but its versatility comes at the cost of the specialized traction needed for safety in areas where harsh winters result in heavy snowfall. These tires should not be used where local weather conditions call for the grip offered by specialized winter tires.
