The Optimo H428 from Hankook is used as original equipment on vehicles like the Chevy Sonic and Hyundai Elantra
among others. Designed for drivers of coupes and sedans, the H428 features all-season traction and handling to go
with a smoother ride.
An all-season tread compound is branded with the M+S emblem for increased traction year round. The tire's
shoulder design and grooves enhance dry traction and give this model adequate cornering performance. Don't expect
too much out of this tire in the corners because that is not what it is engineered to provide.
Circumferential grooves and lateral grooves aid in wet surface handling and evacuating water from under the
tread. The tread compound used in the tire's makeup also helps reduce road noise. Many reviews from other drivers
have stated how quiet this tire rides.
Inside the tire you will find two steel belts and a polyester cord body for added strength and durability, as
well as enhanced ride comfort. Hankook offers 15-17 inch sizes, and the tire sports and H-speed rating.
Dry traction is very good
Ride is comfortable
Tires are quiet for most vehicles
Softer sidewall lessens corning performance
The Hankook H428 finds most of its use as original equipment, and that is likely also its best use. While
areas such as ride comfort, dry traction and steering response are good overall, the tire's softer sidewalls lessen
cornering performance, which for an H-speed rated tire should be much better. In addition, improvements could be
made in regards to winter handling and treadlife.
While this is not one of the better tires in its class, we've seen worse. Overall we feel there are many other
tires in this price/performance range that would make better options.
