2018-12-06 - Hi. Do the 4S2 tires have rim protectors?
Not in the sizes I've seen, but rim protection can vary from size to size so it would be worth contacting Hankook to find out whether the Kinergy 4S2 has rim protection.
2022-09-16 - I’m looking for all weather for my ID.3 the handbook look good but all guides say I need the 4S 2X I take it the difference is in the weight limit but are they the same tire apart from this?
As long as you can get the correct load rating the non X you'll be fine, but yes in theory the 4S2X will be modified towards carrying higher loads.
2022-09-27 - Hi everybody, Hankook 4s2 question. In 225/50 17 does the tire 4s2 come in run flat form?
Yes, it seems there is a HRS (Hankook Runflat System) version of the tire available in 225/50 R17.
2023-03-23 - Would you recommend these tires in size245/40 r18 for a RWD car (around 280bhp)? I compared braking tests with mid summer tire and results are surprisingly even especially when it comes to summertime weather condition results.
I actually have these in my all season test this year on a RWD BMW. Only tested in the snow so far so can't comment for sure but based on last years test they should be great in the dry and wet. Still, a fair bit off a summer tire in the dry.
2023-05-19 - Hi, is this a good allseason tire(18inch) for my Tesla Model 3 rwd+ from 2021. How is the noise and wear?
Hey! If you can find the correct load rating there's no reason it wouldn't be one of the better all season tires, however any all season tire will struggle with the weight and torque of a model 3 so make sure you're aware of the drawbacks.
