Hankook Ventus Z214 C71
 
Has anyone had any experience with these tires? Also wondering what size I should order. 205/50/15 or 225/45/15? They will me mounted to 15x7.5 Rota Slipstreams. Think about getting the 225/45 just because of them being wider. But i like the price of the 205/50 more lol.

Get the 225 if you can swing the $.

Very similar characteristics to A6s. Just not as much grip but longer life.

Thanks. Looks like I'll be ordering a set sometime next week.

I have heard that it is really easy to overheat this compound, so bring water sprayers. I don't have personal experience, but that is what some fellow autox'rs have told me.

I would go wider:D

i have heard similar things to this as well.

mostly on stu class cars so not sure how that will effect you on a focus but im guessing the fronts will be hot and the rears will be perfect.

Tires came in the mail today. Had them mounted to the Slipstreams. Heat cycling them tomorrow.

i wanted these tires because they last for a very long time! let us know how they are on the focus.

Elias, they allow R-comps in STU in your region??

Heat cycled the tires today. It weird having that much traction.
