Hankook (South Korea)
Hankook is the youngest of the best tire brands today, being founded in South Korea in 1941 as the Chosun Tire Company. It was later rebranded in 1968 to become Hankook, which is the native word for “Korean”. The brand only began selling tires in Western markets and the United States in the 1990s.
Despite being pretty young with less experience, Hankook has come a long way to become a name in the tire industry that you cannot ignore. For its short history, it has a quite impressive product breadth of 42 different models. Its most popular offerings are the Optimo and Kinergy all-season and touring tires, the Ventus high performance line, and the Dynapro all-terrain and mud-terrain line, which were launched more recently. It doesn’t have a dedicated line of winter tires though.
Offerings – Car and truck tires: All-season tires, all-terrain tires, mud terrain tires, touring tires, high performance tires, ultra-high performance tires.
Why it’s one of the best tire brands:
- Portfolio: Substantial line of all-season and touring tires, but limited all-terrain and mud-terrain tires, and no winter tire
- Performance: Excellent performance tires
