I could not have been more surprised by these tires! I have only driven about 500 miles so far but I can honestly say I felt the difference immediately driving out of the parking lot after the tires were installed. It is also important to note that I am in the mountains of Western Carolina with my family and have a completely packed van with several weeks of stuff!
I would have never considered Hankook as I tend to stay with the manufactures installed tires because I figure they know what they are doing when the select a tire for a vehicle. It was only because I found these tires for a very big discount and I only have 6 months left on a lease that I decided to give them a try. It has made such a difference to the ride quality and sound that I may just keep my van until these tires run out!! My entire family noticed how soft and quiet the ride is now...including my 8 year old daughter!
If you are looking for a set of tires to replace your OEM's these should be on your short list. If you are looking for a softer more comfortable ride with less noise this tire should be on your list.
Like I mentioned I only have about 500 miles on these tires but with a fully loaded van with five people, all of our gear and driving in the mountains...I could not be more impressed with these tires!
