Where to Buy Hankook tires

Hi All, I am disappointed in not being successful in finding Hankook tires for my Knight in the local Charleston SC area. Certainly I am willing to travel to get them?? Any suggestions?? Size: 275/70, 22.5

After several days of scavenging the internet as well as talking to Goodyear I am convinced that the general consensis is that Hankook's will do the job and not deplete the bank.

GoodYear on "rivering" is completely non responsive. They claim everything in the book that the owner has done wrong. Well I am here to tell them and you that this puppy who has raced for over 40 years and driven just about everything imaginable from bull dozers to aeroplanes has without fail always kept alignment and tire pressures in the forefront.

GoodYear simply wants to turn a blind eye to any sort of prorated reimbursement and/or a recall. I suppose the NHTB needs to hear about the premature wear and subsequent failures. That's my rant and I am sticking to it.

"Google" is a wonderful thing.......
The official Hancook web site indicates at least 5 outlets in Charleston.

I must not know how to look them up either. I've googled but when looking on the many sites that sell them, I can't find the size I need. A lot of sites come up with 22" but no 22.5. When you pick the 22" at every site I've looked at they the size is not availabe. My Michelins are a 235/80R/22.5. Any help would be appreciated.

10/4 on what you found on the internet. I found the exact same thing. I have now located in a little town called Monks Corner a company named GCR Tire who has the Hankook 275/75 - 22.5 for $320.23 each taxes included. $30 to mount and $25 to balance. Seems to be a good price especially up against Goodyear and Michelins.

Further investigation into the technicals of tires and they must meet DOT tech standards. So that said the AH12 is a 16 ply rated, H series tire load tire. Don't know the warranty particulars yet but I would only assume they are equal to (worthless) or better than Goodyear.

Will post when I find out.

Biggest issue with tires particularly front steer tires is that they are in the line of fire for all the negatives. 1) they will hit every pot hole which can do eventual damage to the tire, 2) tire pressures are essential to long term wear, 3) alignment, and usually only toe can be set on the class A rigs, 4) shocks - which tend to show up in across the tread cupping, 5) last but not least the elements - especially ultraviolet light - i.e. the sun. AGE is a factor in that rubber no matter who processes it simply deteriorates with time. 5-7 years is typical. In that time zone lots of things can start happening and the tire manufacturers know this full well.

Anywho, good luck......jim
