Follow-Up Review: 20,000 miles on tires
February 16, 2014
At 20,000 miles these tires are still great and have about 60% tread left. I am still getting around great I the snow, a different brand tire on the wife's Honda with similar miles is pretty helpless in the snow, very pleased with the Hankooks.
Initial Review: 2,000 miles on tires
December 09, 2007

I got these tires for my Maxima after having a premium brand with a premium price on the car for 40,000 miles or so. The Hankooks are quieter, smoother riding, much better in snow rain and ice, as a matter or fact I have been driving around with no trouble at all the last week watching others spin their wheels and get stuck.

As far as handling they felt a little squishy to me at first, but that may be the minimum tread on the tires I replaced vs. the full tread on the Hankooks. I have since explored cornering grip it is quite high with these tires. I am more pleased with these tires than any I have ever bought. Only question still outstanding is wear.
