They're Hankook's answer to the Falken Azenis RT 615's. It seems that Falken has maintained the lead in the street performance (read that as a street legal race tire) tire war. They should be a very sticky performance tire....just don't expect much mileage from them and Falkens may be the better choice for autocrosses.

They are a decent tire. I have a set that I autox and track on. They are closer in performance to the older Azenis RT-215; decent traction, but get greasy after about 20 minutes of track use. The RT-615 is a much nicer of a tire I have heard.

These babies are wide. Here are the 205 kooks compared to the 215 Dunlop snows.

Where'd you get them and how much was the financial damage? Let us know how you like them!

Post pics when you'll get them on, please.


I had RT615 and Z212 (RS2) on my past cars, and i prefer Hankook. Better mileage and more grip in rain. But the look from the RT615 is nicer. Both perform VERY well in autocross/lapping sessions.

i havent been on all day. Those are alot wider...uh oh haha. I dont intend to autocross. i like to "mountain drive" or w/e but mostly need the traction for the local dragstrip. i really like the looks and if they perform like my buddies g-force sports ill be happy.

i don't know about the G-Forces (my friend told me they are awesome) versus the Hankook/Falken, but i presume they will be better. Like one step higher than the G-Force.
