2019-04-01 - Anyone knows, if this tire will come at 255/55R19 size? So far I can't find it at that size.
It is likely the SUV version of the EVO 3 will be produced in this size soon.

2021-07-24 - Does the ventus S1 evo3 k127 have the rim protection?
In the sizes I've tested it does not, however I expect it to have rim protection in certain large wheel sizes.
2021-12-26 - depth of tire pattern?
The Hankook Ventus S1 evo3 usually starts around 7.8mm, though there can be variation depending on tire size.
2022-01-29 - Already been answered but have any of there evo 3 k127s have rim protection as of 2022? And are these tires rated as XL tires?
Rim protection varies by size, as does the XL rating. Your tire retailer should be able to help tell you which is XL.
2023-02-21 - Hello my car is with 245/45/18 and I’m thinking what to buy normal evo 3 C/A/72 or evo with * for bmw and A/A/70 my car is Citroen c5 2012 is not bmw but this stats is better
In your case I would stick with the aftermarket version of the tire, the * marked version of the evo3 will be tuned to work with the BMW platform, and even if the label doesn't show a reduction in wet grip for braking, it is likely to be worse in wet handling.
