Summary: I just have these tyres for 6000km's, good grip on dry road, in wet a little bit less. Tyres are quiet. Wear is a little bit less, I mostly drive on highways and on the corners I can already se wearing off. For 10 EUR more you have premium brand (in 195/65), it's better to buy one of these premiums.
Summary: Pleased with these tyres - well, they worked for me! No problems with grip etc. I bought these because they offered what I look for in a tyre - they are marketed as 'eco' (the clue is in the name) and I suggest that others consider this when buying. I got good MPG with the Hankooks AND the full set lasted for 50K miles (moved around the car every 10K or so). PLUS, they are substantially cheaper than the Michelin Energy (top rated eco tyre).
Summary: The tire is from the worst i've ever had... when the road is in even a light wet condition , driving is very dangerous! Keep away... i've been using bridgestone,goodyear,toyo,michelin,continental ... this tyre is awfull.
Summary: Replaced some worn out Goodyear DuraGrips with these. These tyres have terrible grip in wet, when pulling away at roundabouts and junctions in the wet there is very poor traction. Fairly decent grip on dry roads. Of all the tyres I have ever owned, these have worn down the fastest, they do not last well at all. I have had them for about 11 months (I do around 10k miles a year) and they are now just a few mm above wear indicators.
Summary: I have the tire one year about 8000 KM lightly used. Car Renault Laguna 1,9 DCI touring. Dry grip good in curves but by breaking not soo good, quite slippery. Wet grip very poor, by speed 90km/h always aquaplaning even by small water place on road. Corners are soft, even I looked on it when tires were out from wheel. Price 5 - 10 pounds cheaper as Dunlop or others quality brands...
Summary: It has a great dry and wet grip. I also used it in a 3-4 cm. snow and it worked very well also. I tested the limits of the tyres and it never let it go. No road noise at all. After 15.000 miles it has the same performance but only lose 2-3 mm wear. I had paid two times of the money for premium called brands and feel stupid about it. I tried Continental Contact 2, Continental Sport 3, Bridgestone Potenza Adrenalin, Bridgestone ER300, Kumho KU31 and Lassa Impetus Revo.
Summary: One fitted to the front of an A class Mercedes that my wife uses around town and it has shown an appalling wear rate. It needs to be replaced after only 12,500 miles ! The other front tyre, a Kumho, has been on the car much longer and still has a number of miles life left in it. Won't be using a Hankook again !
Summary: These are fitted to my Mitsubishi Lancer 1.6 on the front wheels , I drive a 50/50 mix of motorway and B roads generally, with a varied driving style - steady to get to work and pushing on to get back Home! They were a good price Â£52 each fitted for a quality brand and given they were some of the most modern and fuel efficient tyres on the market I had high hopes. Braking , handling and acceleration or all good in the dry , with a slight weakness in the wet.
