Built for today's SUV's, crossovers and light trucks, the I*Pike RW11 from Hankook
Tires is designed to power you through even the worst winter weather conditions. Featuring a studdable tread design
and the latest in winter tire technology, the RW11 is engineered to provide consistent performance.
An eco-friendly tread compound sports a wider contact patch for increased traction
and handling on dry road surfaces. Hankook's unique Stiffness Control Contour Theory technology stiffens the
sidewall and adds higher cornering performance, which is an area that many winter tires lack.
Optimized block stiffness and the added kerf center block maximizes traction on
snow packed road surfaces, as well as on icy streets. If you find yourself needing to add studs to the tire you'll
have 6 pin rows for optimal winter traction. The tire is built to run more quietly through a special tread block
pitch and unique groove angles which work together to lower road noise.
Inside the tire you will find twin steel belts with nylon wrapped reinforcement
for enhanced strength and durability. They also promote more even tire wear and increase overall tread life.
Hankook has sizes available in 15-20 inches, and in both PLT and LT models.

Tires to get a bit more road noise as they wear down
We really like the Hankook RW11 for its handling and traction on all types of
winter road conditions. It goes through the snow and ice confidently, leaving you feeling more in control despite
the weather. You have the option of installing studs if you find yourself needing them, and Hankook provides 6 stud
rows as well. Sure, there is a little tire noise as the tread wears down, but that can be expected with virtually
any studdable winter tire. Beyond that, tread life is excellent and the ride is comfortable. Overall, this is a
solid choice in winter tires.
