Hankook Optimo H727 Tire Review & Rating
The Hankook Optimo H727 is an all-season touring tire designed for owners of coupes, sedans, minivans and crossovers who are looking for a tire that offers both solid handling in all types of weather conditions and a comfortable ride quality.
Hankook uses a computerized tread design that features special Carbon Compounding Technology and Footprint Shape Optimization to give the Optimo H727 a smoother and more quiet ride, as well as a longer tread life.
Driving on wet road surfaces, or snow and even ice covered roads, is made safer by four circumferential grooves and hundreds of unique sipes in the tread. Many drivers have reported in reviews of this model that driving through 3-6 inches of snow is easily accomplished.
Steering response and cornering are improved due to a continuous center rib and tapered lateral slots that provide added feel while driving. This also results in increased confidence when driving in all types of road conditions.
Inside the tire’s structure are two steel belts made of high-tensile steel and a nylon cap ply that work together to provide increased handling and improved durability. Finally, Hankook has a 100,000 mile tread life warranty on this tire, which is one of the longest mileage warranties you’ll find on any tire today.
- Dry pavement traction and steering response is superb
- Very quiet tire with a smooth and comfortable ride
- Excellent rain, snow and ice traction
- 100,000 mile tread warranty is outstanding
- Overall handling could be improved
- Hard to balance for some
There is a lot to like about the H727 tire. From the surprisingly good performance in all weather conditions to the smooth and comfortable ride on the highway, it’s easy to see why it has been one of Hankook’s most popular models in their lineup.
Traction in year round conditions is good, with only heavy winter weather presenting any issues with traction on the road. The ride is smooth and comfortable as you would expect with a tire like this, and treadlife has shown to be good. Add to that the industry leading 100K mileage warranty and Hankook has come up with a winning tire.
Although nowhere near the same level of performance as tires like the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus or Cooper CS5 Grand Touring among others, the H727 remains a good buy for anyone looking for a lower costing higher performing all-season tire.
