Hankook Tire has been selected as an original equipment supplier for the all-new 2015 Ford Mustang V6 and EcoBoost. Both the V6 and EcoBoost base level vehicles will be factory equipped with Ventus S1 noble2 tires in 235/55 R17 H AS size, providing the ideal balance of all-season ability and ultra-high performance.

The Ventus S1 noble2 incorporates an asymmetric tread pattern and has a four channel rib design for efficient water evacuation. It also features an advanced silica rubber compound to offer impressive wet handling, braking and lower rolling resistance. Additionally, a straight rib block design applied to the outer edge of the tire’s contact patch helps to prevent unwanted road noise and increase cornering grip.

Commenting on the fitment, Seung Hwa Suh, vice chairman and CEO at Hankook Tire, said, “We value our growing partnership with Ford and above all our unwavering commitment to one of our strategic markets in North America. Our new original equipment fitments proudly exhibit Hankook’s globally proven tire quality and performance. Based on our technological leadership, we at Hankook Tire will continue to advance our position to become a global top-tier tire company as a trusted tire brand.”
