ADAC confirms Hankook-Quality

"Worthy of recommendation" for both winter specialists and all-season tyres

Neu-Isenburg, September 29th 2006. Hankook was able to continue its positive series of
results in this year’s ADAC tyre test. Both the winter specialist ICEBEAR W440 as well as
the all-season tyre Centum H720 were awarded the distinction “worthy of recommendation”.
The test was done on winter and all season tyres of the dimension 185/60 R14 T, among others. The Centum H720 had already been awarded the distinction “worthy of recommendation” by the magazine “Auto Bild”.

The ADAC also praises the low rolling resistance coefficient of the Centum H720, which is
suitable for all seasons of the year, as well as the particularly good results it achieved on dry surfaces. The value for wear and tear was also above the average.
“Top marks for the petrol-saving rolling resistance”, was the verdict over the Hankook winter tyres ICEBEAR W440. Security and economy are subjects that play an important role both in winter as well in all-year round usage. Both tyres were designed by the Hankook engineers specifically for the European winter.
