These tires were on the car when I purchased it Dec 2016.The...  Read More

This rating is based on my experience on three different Coopers with run flat tires. Of the several sets of tires that have to be replaced and brands, Goodyear, Michelin, Perrelli, Hankook, Bridgestone.

Best Bang-for-the-Buck All-Terrain Tires

The snow is finally melting, which can only mean one thing - time to go mudding. With the numerous options available, choosing the correct tire for your light truck or SUV can be overwhelming. Should you choose a tire that focuses more on highway driving with some light off-roading, or vice-versa? For starters, what will fit your truck will depend on the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Dynapro AT-M

We have a 15 Expedition and the tire came stock; i was impressed right away in a good amount of snow 9 inches or so. The truck held strong, braked well, and acceleration was not an issue at all. now we have no snow and it impresses me again. I didn't realize how quiet the tire was until I had to get new tires from my F150 (2014). I went with Toyo ATII - they...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

OK. I replaced the Hankook Dynopro's for these and there is a difference. The Michelin's give better control and much smoother ride. The truck doesn't bounce hardly at all. I only had 7k on the Hankkook's and got rid of them when the wife's car (Sonata) tires (Hankook's) developed a whelp on the sidewall. I didn't trust them.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Dynapro HT RH12

I am a long-time fan of Hankook tires, but this is my first experience with this particular (SUV/Truck) model. I had these installed on my Toyota RAV-4 after much comparison to other premium brands. Absolutely no regrets. I've found them to be excellent performers and an outstanding value! They provide a very smooth and quiet ride, with great hydroplane...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

I have tried the (oxymoronically named) ultra high performance all season tires from the following major brands: Bridgestone, Michelin, and Pirelli--before trying the Hankooks. The Hankooks are understated in their abilities, but come through when called upon to respond to diverse conditions.Yesterday, when a ladder fell off a truck on the highway in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Dynapro HT RH12

I did not select this tire on purpose, it was a throw in when I bought the truck. It needed new tires, and they would not put on the cooper at3 or bfg a/t that I requested, so we compromised on this.I have been wary since the start and am likely to replace them this coming summer after a year of use. Being in Alaska, I worry about ice snow traction in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Optimo H727

This is our 2nd set of hankook optimo. As far as car tires (idk about truck tires) these are the best bang for your buck. Sad day when your wife passes you in her jetta, middle of winter in your 4x4 suv! Our first set was 65k miles old and still had 60% tread left, when we sold it (passat 1.8t) and bought the current tdi. We bought new shoes for the tdi...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Optimo H727

My car came oem equipped with 225/50/17 tires. To give my car a better 'stance', I up'd the tires size to a 55 series so the 'fender-to-tire' distance wouldn't be so large. In doing so, the Optimo727 was my pick of choice since it was a well rated cheap tire that had good wear numbers. Boy am I glad I did! The factory Michelin tires couldn't even start to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Ultra Grip Winter

This is my first set of Goodyear tires in a very long time. I have been running winter tire/summer tire combo for 14 years now. I've had Dunlop Graspics, Hankook Icebears for the past 5 years, Firestones witerfire, and so far these have been the best so far. My Abs hardly comes on compared to running on an all season tire. I would pass 4x4 and all wheel...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo 2

When new, this tire would take me places in 2wd I couldn't go in 4wd, on my old tires (wranglers). Almost as good as dedicated ice tires when brand new, but quickly lose that extra edge. The rubber seems soft, just like dedicated ice tires, my Hankooks lasted 105,000 km, my wranglers 80,000 km. These have only lasted 60,000, but they were so excellent, I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus R-S3

I love these R-S3's. I used Falken Azenis RT-215,s and Falken Azenis RT-615 in the past. My car is used a lot on the track. I am an Instructor at the Driveway Austin Track in Austin.The compound appears to be of an R type as shown by the graining of the tire and lack of tire noise. The grip in dry weather is very good. The Falken 215's were good for the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO

I bought these to replace my OEM Hankook which honestly were horrible in snow..I slid everywhere even just in rain. Bought these and it is like a whole different truck. I LOVE these tires and I will buy them for EVERY truck I ever own as long as they stay this good. Have had them on for about 10k miles and they still look new, and I am what they call an...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Optimo H727

LOUD NOISE WARNING!I loved these tires when I first got them, in fact I bought another set for our other car. They gave good traction and were quiet, but after 30,000 miles they have become so loud that I can't stand driving my car. I rotate my tires and have no suspension problems. I first thought my wheel bearings were going bad, I had them checked and...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus AS RH07

All around good tire. The only complaint was that they are a little bit soft and will squeal when pushed hard. Treadwear is great though. Had over 40k miles on them and still had life left when I traded the truck in. Was pleased with noise levels, wet & snow traction, and ride comfort as well. Would consider again for sure.   Read More
