They don't care if you get ripped off, so long as they take home your money

I would avoid Hankook at all costs. They now own Jax Tyres, whom have no integrity at all. If you invest in this company, you will lose.

Japanese tires beat Korean tires

Terrible tires. They came with my Volkswagen New Beetle 2016. Soon they started to suffer from punctures after taking small road potholes. I had to replace them altogether, I was really bored of having flat tires every now and then. I also have a Nissan Tiida, came with Bridgestone, after 11 years of use only one flat tire travelling the same roads. Sorry Hankook but Japanese are better.

Low grip tyre

A long lasting and reasonably quiet tyre but very low grip in all weather conditions. Just acceptable for dry grip and hopeless in the wet. They are a lower price tyre. Show details

Great tyres- long lasting and good grip

My Hankook Optimo K415 235/50R19 came with the Holden Captiva in June 2015, After completing 110,000 kms I recently replaced them. I found that they are no longer made so I went with Goodyear Efficientgrip SUV. However I am giving this rating so that anyone considering them knows they are a good tyre.
Good grip and long lasting. Good qrip in dry and wet. There is a bit of road noise - im not sure if my new tyres are quieter - lets see.
However to last 6 years and 110k is quite a feat.
we have done inter-state trips between melbourne - canberra, sydney, brisbane. Also towed a camper van for one trip. no complaints. Drove on a punctured tyre with the camper van without realising - still kept going strong. Show details

Overrated tyre. Not really that good

Been running 4 new Optimo K415s on a Hyundai Excel for almost 20,000 kms now. Decent grip on wet and dry surfaces. Durability seems to be average. A major drawback has been tramlining on grooved surfaces of highways. The wobble is very pronounced and, at times, downright scary. Has a major effect on the performance of the car. Tramlining was not present with the earlier tires (set of Toyos and Yokohamas).  Show details

Good long lasting tyre

Came standard with Kia Sportage Platinum 2015 and have had these running for 5 years, with 80% city 20% country drives.
Running on a SUV I tend to be a pretty smooth driver so I'd hardly be pushing boundaries on the tyres performance.
It's been a stable tyre in both dry & wet and have never felt like they've lost grip.
They're reached over 80k but thats not saying they may not have been under depth, particuarly on the front where you'd expect wheel alignment to cause more wear than the rear.
Suffice to say they wear well and the rears still look in good condition.
Would use again. Show details

Performance is okay, but already has bubbles on sidewall

Suitable for low power cars only. Dry grip is acceptable, wet grip is underwhelming. Side tread is already around 1.5mm after only 10,000kms at correct tyre pressures. There are also small bubbles on some of the tyres, and I've never even scraped or hit the sidewalls. Wouldn't purchase again. Show details

Fantastic grip and life

I've been using these tyres on my old Magna wagon for many years and on the Magma before my current car. Excellent build quality, no balancing issues or other manufacturing defects. Fantastic grip especially in the wet. Very long life, I'm getting about four years on the front and the backs seem to last forever. The Magna is very hard on front tyres. Show details

ON PAR WITH OTHER TYRES FOR LIBERTY

Have had these Optimo K415 tyres on my wifes 2008 Liberty for one year now and after this period can recommend them. We are average drivers and do not have any exaggerated expectations of handling in wet or cornering etc. The car originally came with B/stone Potenza RE050, I then fitted Maxxis Victra i Pro, which I thought may have been better in the wet conditions, but that is unproven in normal driving conditions and then fitted these Hankooks K415. I think they may be quieter and smoother and on par with the other tyres we have used, they are very good value, when purchasing 4 for the price of 3.

The best tyres ever!

I have used the Hankook Optimo K415's on our Toyota Camry Altise for a number of years - they seem to handle the rough and tumble of everyday driving for us. These tyres handle the 80/20 coarse chip bitumen/coarse gravel roads we drive on every day and have not been damaged in any way. They don't affect handling or performance due to the wide shoulder on the sidewall Show details

Big Upgrade on My Magna Wagon

Huge steering & road holding upgrade on my 2002 Magna wagon. These tyres are not the quietest but the grip & upgraded response from the car is exceptional. Early days but I'd buy these tyres again in a heartbeat as for value they are hard to go past. Show details

Great grip but are too noisy with a harsh ride on Yaris sedan

Replaced front Bridgestone EP300's on front of a 2008 Yaris sedan for a roadworthy and didn't have choice of brand at the time.
The initial obvious impression was the firmer ride and a big increase in road noise, they are a block pattern tyre with a firmer side wall so I guess that's a cause.
They did however transform the handling, both in the dry and wet, in fact in the wet, understeer was reduced dramatically.
I've done over 30.000k, no problems at all, they hold air pressure perfectly. They are good value for grip and long life as the compound is harder than the Bridgestone's but not my 'go to' as next replacement due to the lack of overall comfort factor for this type of vehicle. Show details

Good value

These tyres were the best value option I could find when my car needed all 4 tyres replaced. I purchased them when they were on sale at Jax. They have been performing well and seem to offer better grip in the wet than my previous tyres. Road noise is decent and they have lasted me a few months with no damage and very minimal wear. Show details
