Hankook Optimo (H426) Tire Reviews
(Based on 6 Reviews)
Got stuck in a really bad ice/snow storm and these tires got me home safely. I was so happy that I had these. My old tires would have spun me out and had me sitting on the side of the road waiting for help.
Twice now I have had these OE tires on new cars. Both sets wore the same. Initially, wear seemed good on a larger Hyundai Elantra, the first 20,000 miles with a little more than half tread left. However, the wear speeds dramatically & the tires wore out by 33,000 miles with very easy driving. After I reached 20,000 miles on the second set of H426 tires, I removed the tires & placed them on a lighter weight Hyundai Accent. The Optimo tires did reduce their latter stage wear while on the Accent, but the tires were worn out by 39,000 miles. I would say, the H426 tires are OK on a light car, but heavier cars dramatically wear these tires. The tires tracked straight ahead well, not needing much on-center correcting. Cornering was OK, but turn-in was not great. The H426 tires were only moderately quiet, but smooth riding.
Simple tire is the best ! Excellent price on tires and fast delivery, ordered on sunday night had tires by Wednesday, we bought tires for our pick up truck and car plus a set on my sons truck ! Great company to do business with !!!
Great Tires, great price, great handling, complimented by my mechanic, good brand, more than 600 miles of test, sure do recommend.
