I was wondering if anyone has ever seen or heard of Hankook Tires? I just bought a new 2010 Ford 350 Van and these are on it. I thought it might of been a swap, or mistake. Anyone know how good they are?

Hankook P235/70R17 XL 108S

Hankook P235/70R17 XL 108S: These tires are oem on a late model F150 xl Supercab - in less than 30,000 street miles (no off-road or construction). I have experienced two catastrophic side wall failures, both at speeds under 50 mph.

I am getting rid of the remaining tires as soon as I can. These tires have very soft side walls and the remaining tires are exhibiting small cracks all the way around the tire in the area net to the bead. It should be noted that I have maintained recommended tire pressures at all times.

Due to this experience, I would not recommend these tires to anyone for any application.

Editorial Comment:  Obviously an unsatisfied user, however, please note that the information provided does not tell us which tire design, manufactured by Hankook was being used.

P235/70R17 is the size, which could apply to many different designs. "XL" may be part of a tread design, but it seems incomplete, and "108S" is the tire's load and speed rating code.

Since this tire is OEM, it may be covered by the manufacturer's oem warranty. See
http://www.hankooktireusa.com/support/ support_oetirewarranty.asp for details.

We encourage people who have had bad or good results with tires to be as specific and complete as possible with details so that other users can make a valid comparison. Including a photo of the actual results, is almost always useful, if possible.

Also helpful is any report of the response of the tire dealer, or tire manufacturer, if available, together with details of the efforts you made to have them respond to your issues.
