Initial Review, 200 Miles on Tires
Bought my car with 36K miles on the original Goodyear Integra tires... after adding 20K I had almost stopped driving it because of tire noise. Rotated, constantly checked pressure and the noise was still horrible. The tires still had 3/16"+ of tread, no cupping, blocking... just noise. Finally gave up and bought the Hankook tires and on the way home from my installer I heard my exhaust at cruising speed for the first time. The only outside noise I get now is from the grooves between concrete sections of highway and the wind. I can't overstate the change... I drive Hwy 52 in NE Iowa, it follows the Mississippi so there are some serious curves. I run only slightly over the speed limit but I almost totally refuse the kick the cruise off for any of the curves and these tires have some serious cornering grip. I know I've barely broken them in but the car's going dormant for the winter so it'll take a while to build up mileage and I couldn't wait to tell how impressed I am with these tires. I have a Chevy Suburban also and when it needs tires they'll be Hankooks, no hesitation.
