If made by Hankook they might be ok. I know of quite a few people with Hankook tires on their trucks and not one does not like them.

They are made by Hankook. There's some reviews of them on Tirerack.com.

If you have a sub compact or small sedan, these should be fine.

They're ultra high performance all season tires, they come in 17 and 18 inch sizes.

I really like these tires already and much more than the DWS.

P.S: For those wondering about my setup so you can compare with yours, my CC is lowered on Eibach sport springs (about an inch drop in the rears and probably around the same in the front too). The rims are VMR V705 18x8.5ET. The factory wheels were 17".

The TR reviews are mostly (all 8 of them) by guys with higher-end or HP cars. Otherwise I typically wouldn't pay much attention.

I avoid Kuhmo and Hankook in general, Goodyear too, because their stuff is mostly not high quality. But then, MOST tires are not great tires.

Brand does not tell you. It's the line within the brand that will be good or not so good.

Made in Korea, China, or Indonesia.

Stick with tires Made in USA.

Hankook are consistent bottom feeders in the Tire Rack survey.
Y'all can be the guinea pig that buys these.

But let us know how it goes!

Drop the u and it's a whole new meaning.

Seriously here is what happens to a cheap tire. These were on a truck I had. No patches, punctures over or under inflated. Just defective. Doing 70 mph when the casing just tore. You can see it split in the center of the tread. Caused 2100 bucks damage total.
I have had Hankook ATS but on other trucks and they were great tires
