Hankook Optimo H428 Tire Review & Rating

The Optimo H428 from Hankook is used as original equipment on vehicles like the Chevy Supersonic 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.

Pros

  • Dry traction is very good
  • Steering feel
  • Ride is comfortable
  • Tires are extremely quiet

Cons

  • Softer sidewall lessens corning performance
  • Winter handling

Overall Thoughts

The H428 finds most of its use as original equipment, and that is likely also its best use. While we like the dry traction and steering response, the tire's soft sidewall lessens cornering performance, which for an H-speed rated tire should be much better. In addition, winter handling could be improved on, although this is not a winter tire.

Ride comfort is good and the tire is relatively quiet for an all-season model. Overall, this is not a bad tire, it is just an unremarkable tire so to speak.
