Top Hankook Optimo K406 Review

Volkswagen (195/60 R15 T) on a combination of roads for 80 average miles
Great tyres ,and will always ask a tyre fitter if they stock Hankook before I consider buying any tyres of any other brand. My Sharon is a heavy car 1250 kg and these tyres work hard.

Given 85% while driving a Hyundai Getz (185/55 R15 H) on mostly town for 84 average miles
Had them on car at purchase, mileage was 4,000. It is now 88,000 kms and just needing to change all four tyres. Never had any problems with the tyres, always handled ok. Mostly town driving not touring. Garage offered us Hankook tyres as the cheapest option, saying the harder rubber was better for the in town driving we mainly do. We were skeptical about buying cheap tyres from a brand we did not know, until we realised that we had been driving Hankooks all along. So yes, we would buy them again.

These are the best tyres in the world. Watch now!
Given 43% while driving a Ford Fusion 1.4 TDci (195/60 R15) on a combination of roads for 22,000 easy going miles
These came as OE. At just over 22,000 miles on mixed roads, I've had to replace the front tyres and will have to replace the rear ones in about 2k miles. Obviously a dreadful performance.

They were ok on dry roads, noisy on motorways and just felt 'thin', every little bump was registered. I wasn't too happy when, for the first time in a 40yr driving career, I skidded doing c.15mph round a lightly icy bend. I never felt exactly comfortable in wet weather, nothing I could definitively point to, just 'thin'.

I replaced these tyres with Firestones (77K warranty) - the difference all round is very marked. I'll never bother with Hankook again.

Given 100% while driving a Hyundai Tucson (215/65 R16 H) on a combination of roads for 32,000 easy going miles
I have 32000 miles and there is still 4mm left on each tyre. I highly recommend these but I think Handcock no longer make this type of tyre. It has been replaced by another.
