I'm a fan of the Hankook V12 Evos as well.
They are reasonably priced, wear is not too bad. I'm not the craziest of drivers, but will press on sometimes. The V12s have no nasty surprises, reasonable sidewall stiffness, good grip wet and dry, quiet, and the tread pattern looks good, not something I'd pay a lot for but nice to have.
I just had the front pair replaced, and even when the old ones had just over 1.6mm on them, they were not bad in the wet. Compared to the Nankang NS2s on when I bought the car the Hankook V12 tyres are a lot safer.
I don't have a lot of experience with lots of different tyres, but the Hankook V12s are not a bad choice in my book, may not last as long as some of the premium brands, but for price per mile compete well on all fronts as well as giving good performance. I estimate that they give around 12-15,000 miles on the front of mine, which isn't bad when all things are considered - heavy Diesel lump, 300Nm of torque, like to press on sometimes, roundabouts can be taken with some G force (when safe).
