Hankook Optimo H727
Initial Review: 200 miles on tires
November 05, 2012

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.

I have 07 dodge magnum wanted to out hankook 727 on car cause I lived them on my corolla but dealer told me won't be as good on magnum cause alittle to sporty of a car for those tires so he talked me into yokohamas yk580. I don't know if its the car or but with about 100 miles on tires now yokohamas in my opinion nit near as good as hankooks. With hankook noticed immediately how quite they were on corolla. The yokohamas not so quite but ok...so should I switch? Dealer gave me 30 days to try yokohamas or switch if I'm not happy. ...
