Initial Review, 14,500 Miles on Tires
October 20, 2013

Noisy OEM tires that are fine in dry conditions but totally untrustworthy otherwise. They spin on wet pavement starts. I don't feel like I will be able to go into this winter with these tires. They have very little traction in light snow. I live in a hilly area and feel like I am at risk on these roads with these tires in winter conditions.

I have babied these tires but they have not worn well for 14500 miles. They look like tires with much much more wear on them. The manufacter's warranty has no value. They will only prorate the tires toward another set of Hankooks. I guess this is typical but why would I want another set of these tires?
