The Optimo H418 all-season touring tire from Hankook is used extensively as original equipment on many vehicles such as models from Kia and other car makers. The all-season tread compound is designed to provide traction on dry, wet and snow covered road surfaces. Independent tread blocks and a solid center rib combine to increase dry handling and cornering grip, while also enhancing steering response throughout the speed range. Circumferential grooves and an interlocking shoulder rib add to wet traction when road conditions deteriorate.
