These Tires replaced some Goodyears that came on my SUV. I thought they were bad but the Hancook are terrible tires. They hydroplane with almost no water on the road. They are literally scary to drive on. Snow is horrible. One of them now vibrates terribly but they dealer doesn't know why. I would never recommend these tires and I can't say that strongly enough. I don't have much money, but i am going to replace them even though there is probably another 20,000 miles I could get out of them, that is how unsafe they are. Oh and they are noisy and ride rough to add to the experience.
These tires are on my used fwd Outlander with traction control, I purchased last year. I have put on roughly 15,000 miles in all varieties of driving conditions. First, the pros of the tire are excellent treadwear. I assume these tires were on my vehicle since day one. With 30,000 miles on them, the tread is still deep, and the tires almost look brand new. They also handle well in rainy conditions. I very rarely slide, or lose traction in light or heavy rain. On dry pavement, they also handle relatively well. So, for 7 months out of the year, these tires are great. However, the winter driving is not so great with these.
The snow and ice is where these tires fail for me. It almost seems there is no traction what so ever on ice, or little snow fall. They always spin out, causing my traction control to kick in. I just feel like I'm sliding all over the place, and have to drive extra slow whenever snow accumulates and gets compacted on the road. I wouldn't think this would be the case with how much tread is left. I've tried running on lower tire pressure and higher, and it doesn't seem to make a difference.
I would have loved to keep these on, but have recently purchased new Michelin Defenders. Apparently, they are supposed to be a much better all season tire.
