Hankook Optimo H724 Review

Suitable for smaller sedans and crossovers, the Hankook Optimo H724 is a simplistic, yet capable tire and an almost surprisingly good price.


  • Long mileage guarantee
  • Great price


  • Could be a bite quieter
  • Limited selection of sizes

Dry performance is above-average with a tread wear rating of 400-500 indicating that the compound’s natural grip is decent enough. While hardly a performance tire, it trades-off some grip for a very agreeable 70,000 mile tread life warranty, an exchange we think most drivers will be happy to do.

Highway driving is smooth and responsiveness is direct thanks to a large section of center tread blocks that are densely packed together. Moderately-sized shoulder tread blocks also help with changes in direction and give stability in the corners no matter what you drive.

Wet weather grip is impressive thanks to not just the four large circumferential grooves (designed to prevent hydroplaning) but also due to the larger “swooshes” cut in the the different rows of tread blocks to help force water away from the contact patch and let the rubber to its work.

Long and thin sipes on the shoulder tread blocks don’t do a lot for grip in the wet or snow. Instead they actually function to help reduce road noise.

With over 1,000 reviews from real consumers on Discount Tire, this budget offering is rated 4.4 out of 5 and is recommended by 93.2% of owners. With that endorsement, at this price, and with such a warranty, this tire is a safe bet.
