Heat Cycles

Hankook Tire is an active participant in major Motorsports events. Our winning motorsports track record proves the quality of our products.

The number of useful heat cycles that a set of race tires can be run is dependent upon whether or not they were properly scuffed, ambient and track temperature, track surface, length of each track session, and most importantly, driving style.

Drivers that toss the car into the entry of a corner and slide through the middle and exit of a turn may have excessive tire wear and a reduction in the consistency of the grip level. A smooth driving style will result in faster lap times and better tire performance.
