Tires came on my 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT. 29,000 miles and at the wear bars. Tires were rotated every 7500 miles. The car will be 2 years old and will not pass inspection because of the tires condition.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

We have been real happy with our 2013 Passat until my wife noticed that the right rear tire had a bulge on the side wall. It looks like it was going to bust. I contacted the dealership and they only covered the tire for the first 12,000 miles. I contacted the manufacturing company to get a resolution to this problem. I have not heard from them. <br /> Our car has 22820 miles on it. The wear on the tires is much is very high. I do not see how they will make it to 60000 miles. I have owned a lot of tires and have never seen a side wall bulge on a tires and tires that had such high wear for such only 22K miles.

My Ford Explorer came with the Hankook Optimo H426 tires. We currently have 75,000 + miles on tires and they are still in good condition. Rotate every 10,000 miles. Extremely happy with the H 426 and am going to replace them at 80,000 with the same tire.
