While at the Nationals I talked to the Hankook rep. Owen Riehle, Julie Jacobs and others had already talked to them and when I mentioned that I was the Club Rep he asked if we might be interested in being affliated with them since we have so many STS and STX drivers who are highly respected.

He should be contacting me and we will have the opportunity to test out their tires, both the existing ones and new ones they are developing! (for free!)

Do they have any raceable street tires?

Last I checked, no.

How about some sporty truck tires? I'll be needing some before it rains.

The tire they are pushing for STS/STX is the K104.

They had it on display in a 20" size. Cool looking tire, but doesn't look like a match for a Falken.

Robert and I talked with them also and thanked them for their support.

The new (November) issue of Grassroots motorsports tests a few tires; they found that the Hankook compared favorably to the Ecsta 712; they were slower than the Azenis and BFG KD's.

(On an unrelated note, I made the big switch from boring all-season tires to Azenis last weekend. Looking forward to Sunday!)
