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.

These tires came on my 2012 Sonata Hybrid. I currently have 25,500 miles on the car/tires; they are in awful shape and I've owned the car less than 3 years. Mostly city driving with some highway. Obviously not anywhere near the 60k miles expected on the tires. After the first year they had noticeable wear in the middle of the tire. Now they are bald in the center and are balding on the edges too. I'm not a crazy driver, I check the air, and I've had the tires rotated/balanced about every 7k miles. Out of all the cars I've owned in the past 30 years, these tires have worn out the fastest. I wouldn't purchase these tires again.

Comment:
Tires are dangerous in wet weather. The tires came as OE on my 2014 Explorer. The Explorer has been perfect other than these tires. I tool the vehicle back to the dealer to check the stability control system and the antilock brake system.<br /><br />The vehicle was difficult to stop on wet roads and even moderate acceleration caused tire spin and the vehicle to move laterally. I replaced these tires as soon as I could find replacements of that size (waited for delivery of tires 3 months) The replacement tires resolved the traction issues.
