I switched to Hankook Ventus V12 evo2 tires.
My priorities were to find the highest performance tire at a reasonable price. It is not a LRR tire, it is a maximum performance tire. I purchased it in the stock size. I ran the OEM tires at 40 psi and do the same with the new tires.
Tires replaced at 9,900 miles (replaced early and put the used OEM focus tires on wife's fusion [the other FFE] since they are the exact same tires and we like them on her car)
Lifetime 243 WHr/mi and has never been reset, has been +/- 1 for the last 3 months
50-60% 65 mph freeway
My initial impressions:
Much better grip
Same noise level except slightly louder over bumps
Slightly smoother ride
Slightly less "tramlining" (following grooves in road)
Probably 2-5% loss of range
I will update info as I drive on them more.
EDIT: After 10,000 miles on the V12's my wHr/mi stabilized at 250. Considering my commute speed limit increasing and abusing it on track at Laguna Seca I figure my driving habits influence my efficiency significantly more than LRR v sticky tires.
