Hankook in Europe is factory-fitting the new Ford Focus Active with the Hankook Ventus Prime 3. The tyre has been available in sizes 215/50R18V and 215/55R17V for the vehicle model since December 2018.
The company says the ultra-high-performance tyre allows for excellent driving and braking performance on wet and dry surfaces with a high-grip silica tread compound providing improved wet braking.
“During development of the new Ventus Prime 3, special attention was paid to a high traction and braking performance, particularly on wet road surfaces,” said Klaus Krause, Head of the European Research and Development Centre at Hankook. “By using an adapted asymmetrical tread, the actual contact surface between the tyre and the road has been increased by 10 per cent. This means the Ford Focus Active will hit the road especially safely and precisely thanks to Ventus Prime 3.”
