Hankook Optimo H418
Follow-Up Review: 27,000 miles on tires
December 18, 2012
I now have about 27,000 miles on these tires and they still are showing little wear. They are still quiet and smooth riding and are just okay in the snow. I have had to patch a few of these due to nails and replaced one due to a tack in the sidewall. Overall they don't seem like the most durable tires due to the amount of repairs but the tread seems to be wearing well.

I previously had Goodyear Tripletreds on this car and they were not well suited to it. They made it ride harshly and were noisy. They did have good traction in the rain and snow. The Hankook H418 are much quieter and softer riding which is exactly what I wanted for this car. The sidewalls are fairly thin on these which make it not corner real well, but could care less about that, it is a commuter car. They are acceptable in the snow and ice, I was able to get around this winter with no problems. Overall, I would recommend the Hankooks for a smooth ride and quietness.
