I had Hankook tires on a 1991 Safari but those are much smaller. Never had a problem with those tires. I think Hankook is one of the largest tire manufactures in the world.

I bought six 245/70R/19.5 about 8 weeks ago to replace Michelins that aged out. Have put a few hundred miles on them and not had any problems with handling or ride. That's not a lot of experience, I know but have read good things about Hankooks on other forums... that's why I decided to buy that brand.

No Problems so Far

Have had those on my MH the last 3 years with no issues. Ride is fine with fronts at 85 lbs. and 80 lbs. on rears. Amazing thing is that I have never had to adjust the pressure in all that time. Would buy again.

I have Hankooks (22.5) that I just bought and only have about 1800 miles on them but really like them. I used to drive with a two hand death grip and now can drive with one hand if I want to (don't though). They seem to have gotten better with a few miles on them.
I bought them because of all the good reviews and have not been disappointed so far and saved a lot of $.

If you Google "Hankook Tires" here on iRV2 there should be hours of reading...

I ran 19.5 on my gasser for a few years and I have 22s on my Suburban for six years. Awesome tires. The DP I just purchased has Samson's on it. Put a couple thousand miles on them so far and seems like a good alternative also. When the time comes I will look to Hankook.

. When the time comes I will look to Hankook. Sounds like the brand to head to when my Michelins wear out. I get a kick out of the name though....it literally means Korean (Han) person (kook) but the K is pronounced more like a G and is where the offensive English slur "gook" comes from. The Korean word for American is Mi-gook, Chinese is Chun-gook,Korean is Han-gook. I guess GIs coming back from Korea in the 50s just misunderstand the usage.

That's why they renamed Kimpo Airport Gimpo. I don't believe the k is proper in that language.

there's a "hard" K in the Korean language - different alphabet character than the g/k sound. Looks like the number 77

Paid $1850 for a set of 6 AH 11's in 19.5" May of 2013. Mounted & balanced. Very happy with them. We do a lot of beach camping where I have to air them down to 25 psi to get on the sand and have had no issues at all. Will see if I can pop them off this off season and have the insides inspected by the people who put them on.
