How many miles are you getting on the stock hankook tires?
I couldn't believe it, I took my car in for the 22.5K service and the front tires are just past the legal limt and the rears are almost to the limit. They are Hankook Optimo H272's 195/60r15's. That is rediculous, bias ply tires from the 1960's were at least that good. The dealer gave me some bull about OEM hankooks having softer tread compound than replacement Hankooks. I'm getting Michelin Defenders, I will never buy Hankook again. If Ford is really doing this as the dealer says they are, I may never buy ford again either. So any way what kind of mileage is everyone getting out of their Hankooks.

Sorry just blowing off steam about having to spend 6-7 hundred dollars for good tires that should have come on the car to begin with.

By the way I have replacement Hankooks on my truck, I thought I would give them a try and they have 20,000 milea on an AT tread and aren't worn out.

Whats the treadwear rating? Were they rotated every 5k? Were you running the correct pressure? Many factors contribute to poor wear.
Also you probably have 727's, not 272's.

Yes they are 727's, deslexia kicked in. don't know what the tread wear rating is, they got rotated everytime it went in for scheduled service. checked the pressure once a week before leaving the house.
