These tires don't meat my requirements, not by a long shot.

Re: Panda 85 Lounge, Grigio Argento (Metallizzato)

Not sure about this particular size, but Hankook Ventus is not considered a bad tire.

No, not bad.
I have the "Hankook Ventus V12 Evo2 K120" summer tire in size 215/40R16" on my front wheels, the above Hankook was also good in his time, but now it's dated and loose ground in being good, it's ad best "average" now a days.

Re: Panda 85 Lounge, Grigio Argento (Metallizzato)

Put the Panda back on 16" steel with wheel covers, much better drive then on 17" LM's.
And a weigh reduction of 2.5+ Kg per wheel.

Re: Panda 85 Lounge, Grigio Argento (Metallizzato)

Put some new Hertz 16.5 cm speakers in the front doors, not convinced about the sound upgrade.
Had expected a bigger improvement in sound quality.

Re: Panda 85 Lounge, Grigio Argento (Metallizzato)

It is also a nice fitment compare to the stock 6Jx15" ET35 LM wheels, with 185/55R15" tires.

So you donít rate the hertz speakers. Seen them a lot for upgrades on the 500s. I must say I have never heard of them.
