I was checking my tires last couple days and the tread has worn down very fast. The Hankook Optimo 426 rated at 60k miles although all the reviews i found said their tires have worn down vast as well. I only have 25k miles but they just seem to of worn out way to quickly. I was curious if anyone else is having this problem?

My wife's Sonata had those tires from the factory and they were done at 24000 miles...I have 6500 miles and I'd guess mine will be about the same. The roads suck and that really does not help I'm sure.

Driving style and average weight capacity plays a roll in tire wear too. If you're car is always full of passengers, or you like to take turns hard, even without breaking loose or roasting tires, you are going to lose tread depth quicker then a 100lb grandma driver that never has passengers or cargo.

My car is usually always just me driving to school and work. But I took it to Kia and they said I should have about 5k to 10k left. I wasn't satisfied so I took them to 6 different tire places and all of them said my back tires were in the red of their reading and yellow in the front. Since the tires are low profile I guess they just wear out even though they were rated at 60k. So I just went ahead and switched them out to some Michelins that were 60k rated and by Consumer Reports.
