The Hankook Winter I*cept IZ2 is a touring winter tire manufactured for passenger vehicles. The model promotes great winter weather traction with the detailed tread design and silica-based tire compound. The groove placement increases the hydroplaning resistance. The constant road contact boosts the model’s controllability, while the shoulder tread pattern enhances the cornering and maneuvering capability. The zigzag traction grooves shorten the braking distance and offer a safer performance. The Winter I*cept IZ2 ensures excellent durability and uniformity with its stronger internal structure.
The directional tread design’s high density 3D sipes and the silica compound improve the winter traction.
The V-shaped tread grooves disperse water and slush from below the tire’s footprint to avoid hydroplaning.
The continuous zigzag center rib boosts the steering responsiveness and driving stability with better road contact.
The tread’s zigzag traction grooves increase the braking ability by creating friction at the moment of braking.
The optimized sidewall stiffness and the ‘Z’ grip shoulder block upgrade the cornering ability and power.
The high strength bead wide and the high-stiffness bead filler optimize the bead shape to ensure constant uniformity.
