The Hankook Optimo H725 tire is a touring all-season tire developed as an original equipment replacement for use on sedans, minivans and crossover vehicles. The Hankook Optimo H725 is designed to provide sporty looks, predictable handling and year-round traction, even in light snow. This tire features an all-season compound molded into a symmetric, independent block tread design. The tires strength and resistance to punctures comes from an internal tire structure of twin steel belts. These also help to stabilize the tread area. Under the steel belts there is a polyester cord belt that is cushioned to improve the ride. This feature reduces the vibration of road variations passing through the tire, to the suspension and onto the steering wheel for much improved ride comfort.
