Top Hankook Optimo 4S Review

Given 81% while driving a Chevrolet Uplander Van (225/60 R17) on mostly town for 2,400 easy going miles
I purchased these tires in October 2013. While I've only put 4200 Kms on them and mostly in snow (I am in Montreal,
Canada), I've been extremely pleased with them. As winter tires are mandatory here, I didn't want to go through the hassle of purchasing both all season and winters. The Optimo 4S is the only certified all weather tire here so I thought I'd give them a shot. So far so good. They handle extremely well in all weather conditions including deep snow and ice.

Mazda (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 0 average miles
I do not know why I have had several of these tires wear in extraordinary ways. I take my winters off and put my alloy rims and tires on and immediately have problems.i had wheel alignments, rim checks, even bought to other rims and still they wear mostly on the one edge, can be in board or out. Can only figure they are bad quality tires. Never had this issue with other tires in 50 years

Given 97% while driving a Peugeot 308 1.6 HDi (205/55 R16 R) on a combination of roads for 34,500 spirited miles
Absolutely brilliant tyre! Have them on a Peugeot 308 hdi & over 34000 miles on them so have ordered another set to be fitted! The only thing is when new they sound a bit grippy ?

Given 90% while driving a Toyota Corolla (185/65 R15 T) on mostly town for 1,000 average miles
I live in BC, Canada...and I only used all seasons tyres ever since, but this time of winter I decided to have all weather tyres on my 2003 Toyota Corolla, driving my daughters everyday to school on an uphill and downhill snowy and icy roads...The Hankook Optimo 4S 185/65R15 gave me more confidence and safe driving. The tyres deliver and I'm satisfied, went back at Canadian Tires to buy another 4 sets of tires for Honda Odessey but their is no size available 235/65R17 hopefully Hankook Tires Co. will make one?

Given 100% while driving a Pontiac trans am ws6 (225/45 R17) on mostly country roads for 10 average miles
Replaced OEM Hankook on GM with 4S. Was hesitant at first with 4 seasons due to wear ability. So far the response on ice and snow has been impressive/ Will have to see hoe long the last. Drive 200k daily on highway.

Given 91% while driving a CitroŽn xsara picasso (185/65 R15 H) on a combination of roads for 11,000 average miles
Great tyres, selected because I drive all year round and must get to work, even in winter. I also drive to the Alps in both summer and winter. No problems at all with handling, comfort or noise, good in dry and very good in standing water and wet. As for Snow- excellent in deep snow, ice, as in ski lift car parks. Never needed , or felt the need for chains. Max depth of snow 20cm . And this is with tyres with 11000 miles on them. - Also great value.
