Comment:
These tires have over 90K miles on them and still have tread left! I travel 25K+ a year and have had these tires thru 4 winters. They are great in the snow and I feel they grip the pavement well in all kinds of weather. They are not the cheapest on the market, but I purchased them after reading CR reviews. Some complained that the tread life was bad, but I have had nothing but good fortune with them and am glad I purchased them...will probably be buying another set soon. BTW, I drive a crossover Ford Taurus X...don't know if that has anthing to do with it.

I bought these because they were top rated CR tires including snow and ice for all seasons. I'm not sure it it was the car :2002 buick regal or tire size: 225/60 R 16, but these were not useable in the winter for me. <br /><br />I got about 60,000 miles out of them, keeping the car aligned and tires rotated. Surely not as advertised. <br /><br />Previously had NEVER bought winter tires in Spokane WA (only used all seasons) and exepected these to work just as well. We drive in snow and ice here frequently. On my old car (chevy lumina) with different tires, I would drive to ski mountains in the snow just fine. But the H727s on the Buick were just about the worst winter tires I had ever had. Totally useless and dangerous so I had to buy winter tires. What a dissapointment. <br /><br />Noise seemed average to me, no better than the previous tires on that car which were also Hankook. But I wasn't sure if that was the car or the tire. Overall I was disspointed that these for did NOT live up to the ratings.

Comment:
I do not recommend these tires. They are very, very noisy to the point of extreme. I contacted Hankook and as I did not have them rotated by the selling dealer they would do nothing - terrible customer service. I currently have Hankooks on two of my vehicles, will be the first and last Hankooks I ever purchase.
