    For most drivers of sedans, coupes, minivans, and crossovers, all-season tires are a great option. All-season tires are designed for long tread life, sharp, responsive handling, low noise, great road manners, a luxurious ride, and year-round traction. They present a great balance of all the above and are a pretty popular segment in the tire market.

    That’s where the Hankook Optimo (H725A) comes in. The Optimo (H725A) is designed for handling that is precise but also neutral, with a ride quality that would be a great fit on luxury sedans (but at a non-luxury price). It’s a tire that delivers on all those expectations and then some, with performance and value that make it the choice for an OEM tire for several makes and models.

    So what is it about the tire that makes it so exceptional? Let’s go in for a closer look with this Hankook Optimo (H725A) review.

    Features and Benefits

    Here’s some of what to look for with the Hankook Optimo H725A:

    • The advanced all-season rubber compound is molded into independent tread blocks with a dense pattern of sipes to dig in and provide extra biting edges on wet roads, snow, or slush
    • Solid center rib enhances straight-line stability and steering response
    • Wide circumferential grooves channel water away from the tire’s contact patch to resist hydroplaning
    • Long interlocking tread block design helps cut braking distances
    • Shoulder geometry designed for extra stiffness for precise cornering
    • High-hardness bead filler and single-strand bead wire
    • Two steel belts over polyester cord casing with spiral wound nylon cap ply layer
    • Tread pitch computer tuned to keep road noise to a minimum
    • Backed by an 80,000 mile limited manufacturer tread life warranty

    Pros and Cons

    So, is this Hankook all-season tire the right choice for your ride and budget? Before you decide, let’s take a look at the tire’s pros and cons:


    • Refined ride quality
    • Predictable, responsive handling
    • Generous warranty coverage
    • Competitively priced


    • Poor traction in heavier snow
    • Wet-weather traction could be better

    SimpleTire’s view on Hankook Optimo (H725A) tires

    When it comes to performance-oriented all-season tires, there are a lot of options out there on the market. Hankook has been putting out premium tires for decades now, and their products just keep getting better. The Optimo (H725A) is a great example, with performance and value that are second to none. It’s a tire that’s quiet and forgiving on long interstate stretches but gives you the confidence you need to carve up an offramp or a twisty rural road with ease. The 80,000 mile warranty is best-in-class, and the advanced rubber formulation ensures even wear over the miles.

    It’s been reported that wet-weather traction could be better with the Optimo (H725A), but that could also be a subjective take. As for winter traction, it’s not surprising that the Optimo (H725A) could do better in deeper snow. All-season touring tires aren’t designed for deeper snow, slush, and ice, but they do perform admirably well in lighter winter conditions. If you’re looking for a tire that will deliver precise cornering and steering response with year-round grip and a ride that’s worthy of the nicest luxury sedans and crossovers, you’ll love the Hankook Optimo (H725A).
