Autonomous vehicle will soon start showing up on city streets and revolutionize the way we think about personal transportation, so these Hankook tire concepts have been designed to identify how essential equipment will evolve to meet modern needs.

The two tires include the Hexonic and the Aeroflex, which are designed for self-driving cars and motorsports, respectively. The Hexonic is packed with seven sensors to help it adapt to different driving terrain, while the Aeroflex can shift in shape to create more downforce, if required. These features identify the kind of innovation at work at Hankook, which will transform the way we think about tires as our vehicles continue to evolve.

The Hankook tire concepts were showcased at the Essen Motor Show.
