Got 39k miles out of the OE hankooks

Was pretty happy with that.


Ended up replacing them with a set of (4) Cooper Discoverer's for $375 shipped to my door.

Thank you ebay and DTD!

We are at 21k on our Hankooks and they are well past 1/2 tread. But my wife thinks it's a Mustang.
I have been impressed with them for an OEM tire. They don't like heavy rain at the wear level they are. I honestly like the looks of them.
I'm planning on Terra Grappler G2's as a replacement.

How have the Coopers done for you?

I was looking at some

Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Plus

for the 80,000 mileage warranty.

I have been burned by Cheap tires before and I usually go for the a higher mileage warranty.

We're up to 44,xxx miles on the OE Goodyears with 18" wheels on my wife's 2016. They are shot and need replaced very soon. We bought it May 2017 as a CPO rental and have never liked the tires.

I put these and 20" wheels on my 2003 Expy 3 years/21,000 miles ago. They're a great riding, great wearing tire. I'll likely put these on the '16 in 18" size unless I find a decent deal on new OE 20" takeoffs on craigslist soon. Most of those have Hankooks.

I've had a variety of tires on my '04 Expy and none of them have really lasted till the tread warranty. I now have a set of Bridgestone Dueller Revo and think they will be the best yet.

My 2011 F-150 came with the Hankooks. Very smooth and quiet riding tire and it wore very well. I replaced them at 50K miles and they still had 6/32's on them.

One thing to do to get more life out of tires on this heavy vehicle is run a little higher pressure than the door jam suggests. I bought my 15' EL 4x4 with 28k miles on it with the 18" Goodyear Wranglers and the middle if the tires were 8/32nds tread depth the outside of the treads were 4/32. Thats a sign of overloading or underinflated. The tires were all at 36psi, I ran them another few thousand miles at 45psi (max is 50) and the middle of the tread was 7/32 and the outsides were still 4/32. At 32k miles I put on a set of Michelin Defenders 10 ply Load range E tires (max pressure 80psi) and have run them at 50psi for 50k miles and they are all 4 at 8/32 all they way across the tread.

I have 2 Hankooks that are new, and 2 that are near end of life. Not sure if the 2 bald ones are OEM... truck has 59k miles on it. Im going to Michelin defenders with a 70k tread warranty. Pricy, but Ive had good luck with michelin.

I'm looking at Tirerack for wheels and tires, the wife isn't liking the OEM wheels posted on craigslist. The Michelin Defenders and Bridgestone Alenza Plus are about the same cost, about the same rating, and about the same warranty, but I'm leaning towards Defenders cause they're a little higher rated and I haven't used them yet. I'm already confident the Alenza Plus would/will be a good tire.

I should be pulling the trigger on something this month, so anyone chime in if you know where to get a better deal.

I have 67k on my 22" Pirelli tires and still going strong. I was never a fan of that brand but I am now, and I haven't been easy on them. I always run them at 40 psi and they have a consistent wear pattern.

I want a set of Michelin LTX's for my truck next go around but, last year a put a set of Bridgestone AT's on my wife's Expy and I'm loving these tires. I don't think that they'll have the bite of the LTX but I think they'll last as long.

I had the Bridgestone Duel H/L Alenza Plus on our old 2004 Expedition and I used that warranty because they were down to 4/32" well before the warranty. I had less than 40k miles on them when Discount Tire prorated them for me. I did end up getting a bunch of money back. I have also run Nitto NT421Q tires and they wore out before the warranty too.

I currently have Michelin Defender LTX M/S on our 2013 Expedition and couldn't be happier. Quiet, smooth and have over 50k miles on them now. They should easily outlast the 70k mile warranty unless they wear extremely fast as the tread gets lower. We drive the Expedition in typical Houston traffic and on the highway for long trips. 99% paved roads. We average about 25k miles per year.

certainly. At nearly half the cost for the coopers I figured they would do much better than half the miles of the hankooks and they did.

the math wasnít confusing.
