hankook optimo review

With an excellent overall rating from drivers on Mavis Discount Tire, the hankook optimo review has proven to be one of Hankook’s most popular tires in their lineup. Traction in most weather conditions is above average and the ride comfort is smooth and comfortable. The treadlife and warranty are impressive as well.

Optimo is an all-season touring tire for coupes, sedans, minivans and crossover vehicles. Its computerized tread design focuses on providing exceptional handling and ride quality while optimizing tread life and reducing noise. This is accomplished with a special carbon compound in the tread, footprint shape optimization and rib-type micro sipes on the shoulder blocks that promote better water drainage and improve grip on wet road surfaces.

The Optimo’s traction on wet pavement is enhanced by four circumferential grooves and hundreds of sipes. Driving on snow and ice covered roads is possible, but you will need to drive carefully and limit your speed.

The Optimo is also part of the Hankook iON family of eco-friendly, high-performance tires designed for electric vehicle (EV) owners. Two of the iON tires (iON S and iON SX) are summer performance tires, while the Winter i*Cept iON is a dedicated snow tire. Hankook offers a six-year limited warranty on all of their tires, which provides protection against defects in materials and workmanship. This covers the cost of replacement, minus any applicable taxes, fees or labor. Additional coverage can be purchased through the Road Hazard Warranty for a minimal additional fee.
