I have a local guy with a set of basically new (500 or less miles) Hankook Ventus V4 ES 225/35/19s. Trying to decide if they are worth getting or not. Any input from people who have actually used these tires before? I've read reviews online, but would like some input from a fellow Volvo owner.<p>Thanks in advance for any help!

Re: Hankook Ventus V4 ES all season high performance tires? Any input? (carreragt7)

I have been running the V4ES 235/45-17XL on my 06 V70R for 2 1/2 summers so far. For the price they are a good tire. The outright grip is not as good as the summer only Pirelli Rosso's they replaced. The sidewalls seems tough (no bubbles yet on a VR that sees heavy loads and high speeds.) Great in the rain. They seems to be getting a little louder as the tread reaches the halfway mark.<p>Absolutely horrendous in the snow. I run a seperate set of winter wheels/tires so this was not a concern for me.
