An interesting tire comparison.

My 185/70/14 Viking Snowtech vs. my new 225/50/15 Hankook R-S2 Z212:



Slight difference, eh?

Now, a 225/50/15 Falken ZE-512 vs. a 225/50/15 Hankook R-S2 Z212:



Looks like some fender rolling is in the cards. Can't wait to try these monsters out.

All tires are not created equal, even if they are the same size.

Gotta love tire manufactures, whats the point of having sizes, threadware, etc....when every manufacture makes up their own.
