The Hankook Optimo H727

Hankook Optimo H727
A couple of months ago I purchased some Hankook Optimo H727 tires for my girlfriend's car.  She had some generic, no-name tires on her vehicle and was complaining of vibration at highway speeds as well as poor wet traction.

I thought it would be best to replace them before winter. I picked the Hankook based on  price and the consumer reviews we have on our website. I have to say I am impressed with them. The vibration at high speeds is gone. They are quiet, ride well and their wet and dry traction is very good. My main concern was snow and ice traction and they have met my expectations. My driveway is on an incline and she has had no issues reaching the top and has not expressed concern with their stopping ability.

I will continue to recommend this tire to my customers.

Vibration: you should've re-balanced the tires before buying new ones, unless you were sure they should be replaced otherwise.

I have had my Hankook Optima tires for about a month. Three of them have already been replaced because of defects in them, and I have had them go flat four times. Tomorrow they are going back as I have yet another flat tire today. The Tiger Paws that they replaced still had good tread after 65k miles and never even one flat tire. Hankook Optimas have been the worst tires I have ever purchased.

These H727's were put on a 08 Sebring, replacing the factory junk EL400's. Using the proper rotation schedules, the proper inflation pressures, proper driving habits, and understanding that NO tire can even be repaired past 6 years so REPLACE THEM MORE OFTEN regardless of mileage, these are fantastic tires. As someone else said, imaging what your tires do every day, then complain they don't last for 80K miles or that they are wearing out after 5 years. Common sense expectations coupled with these tires = winner !
