Hankook Optimo H725
Follow-Up Review: 72,000 miles on tires
At 72k on them they are still wearing like champions. Ride noise has increased greatly, but traction in dry and wet is still excellent with only 1/4 of an inch from the wear bars! The road noise may have something to do with my not rotating and balancing them on time but i believe i got my moneys worth.<br><br>It's time to order another set for me, winter is coming and i know i'll be safe with these tires.
Initial Review: 15,000 miles on tires
After 15k i have gone though every type of weather imaginable. These are hands down the best all season tires i have ever owned with only two exceptions. I lost 3mpg over my LRR tires they replaced but my car still get's it's EPA mpg rating of 35 on the highway instead of the 38 i was getting. Also from a stop i can easily spin my tires so the traction is not great from a stop over my old tires. The dry traction and corning is great though so no complaints there. Wet traction is awesome and i have no problems driving though big puddles with ease. On ice i have plenty of traction and control as long as i take it easy pulling away from a stop. Snow traction is great too. I had no problem driving through 4 inches of freshly fallen snow with ice underlying.
So far so good but only time will tell if i get 100k from them but so far the wear has been great.
