Our 2015 Chevy Sonic came with Hankook tires . Need to replace them before winter .

I can bet Hankook tires from Walmart , pretty reasonable .

Douglas is a little cheaper , but lesser mile rating .

We get maybe 1 , 2 weeks of snow / ice a year , at the most .

Summer temps peak at over 100F .

Opinions ?

Thanks , :-)

The 727 wear (UTOG) numbers 700 vs H724 UTOG of 500. The 727 is also rated at a higher level for rain and snow.

I definitely wouldn't buy Douglas tires from walmart. The money you save is not worth trusting your life to cheap, junky chinese tires.

Douglas is garbage. For the price of Hankooks you can get general RT43s which is a better tire than both. I have had experience with Hankook H727s but never cared for them. Decent traction, decently quiet but they wore very quickly for a high mileage rated tire.

Hankook is a budget brand, but they don't completely suck. Douglas is worse.

Budget brand?

Since when

Hankook are fitted as OE tyres on Mercedes Benz, Hyundai and Kia.

They are a solid mid priced tyre that performs aswell as many much more expensive brands.

Okay, little bit of a different opinion here, I have a Sonic as well. While I am pretty satisfied with the Hankook tires that came on my Sonic, I only have 40k on them at this point, and they look like they have quite a way to go yet. I have Douglas performance tires on my other car. My Douglas tires come with a 45k treadwear warranty. I have almost 40k on them and they aren't worn even half way. They are not made in China, they are actually one of the only tires I was able to find that were made in the U.S.A. I would buy them again, because even driving aggressively traction is great, never had any issues out of them at all. Not out of round, they are quiet and do their job nicely,being a performance tire the sidewall is on the stiffer side. I don't think they get enough credit because they are Walmart brand. When my Sonic needs tires I will consider the Douglas tires since they have actually been very good. The size I own are 205/55/16 and are on my Diesel VW beetle which is very front heavy for obvious reasons. I originally bought them because they were the cheapest and I was told my car was crooked. Well it turns out that Merchants tire just couldn't do an alignment. Douglas tires and a Pepboys alignment and here I am 40k later and the tires aren't even slightly feathered. Wearing perfectly across the tread. So to wrap it up, don't rule out the Douglas tires, while not saying they are the best out there, they aren't half bad.

Looks like the general RT43 is about $ 10 a tire higher , than the cheap Hankook , about the same as the other Hankook .

Present OEM Hankook tires have close to 40,000 miles on them . About what I expect for OEM tires . The ones in the Wally World say 75,000 miles ? I look at that with a grain of salt .

What about the Generals causes you to recommend them ? Better / longer tire wear ? A tire quieter than the OEM Hankook tires would be nice .

Where are the Hankook tires made ? Never heard of them before we bought the Sonic .

Thanks , :-)

I've seen a Douglas tire on display at walmart and the sidewalls felt paper thin compared to other tires. No thanks.

I bought a set of 205/55R16 Michelin Defenders a few years ago during a Discount Tire Direct sale and got a set for $320 after rebates.

A set of Douglas 205/55R16 is $57/each plus tax. So around $245.

$75 more for a 90,000 set of Michelins verses a 45,000 Douglas is a no brainer for me.


And if you have 195/65R15's (not sure what you have?) the difference is even less. Around $45.
