Hankook Tires Worst Ever!
(Torrance CA, USA)
I just replaced all 4 tires on a new Ford Explorer Sport at a cost of $950. The Hankook H-452 were completely bald at 14,000 miles. That is the worst amount of miles i have ever had on any set of tires and i have owned a lot of vehicles. The car had perfect alignment and the tires were rotated every 5,000 miles. To make it even worse, they refused to honor their warranty. I would not recommend these tires to anyone.
Same issues with wear on my 2016 Ford Explorer Limited as others have stated. 38K miles and ready for replacement. Handled great when tread was sufficient. I can't believe this is a 50,000 mile tire. Will not go back to Hankook brand, although this could be a Ford choosing wrong tire for this vehicle issue. Either way I'm looking elsewhere.
These tires are too bouncy and I keep getting flat tires! Only have 18, 700 km on this vehicle..Have had 4 other Ford Explorer XLT's and never a problem with the tires. I will be replacing these ASAP!!
35000 miles and need replacing! Ford doesn't even prorate the wear to 50000 miles! If I buy another Explorer, Ford will have to come up with an extra $1000 to pay for the 1/2 wear I got on the Hankook tires. It is hard to believe Ford uses such a bad wearing tire and doesn't honor the wear mileage!
Very disappointing treadwear. 32,000 miles and they are down to 3/32. These are supposed to be 50,000 mile tires. I have NEVER had to replace new tires this soon, particularly on a new vehicle. These are my first and LAST Hankook tires. NEVER AGAIN!
These are the most disappointing tires I have ever had on a new vehicle. My 2016 Explorer has only 12,000 miles on it and there are only 4/32 left on the tires. I would never recommend these ties and Ford should drop them as a supplier for the Explorers.
