Rated 5 out of 5 Smooth ride.
My wife has Honda Civic Hybrid that had Michelins on it. The noise was unbearable. Even smooth roads sounded like washboard. About 300 miles ago I switched to the Hankook Ventus V2 / H437's. It not only is a good looking tire it was so smooth and quiet that wish I had switch them sooner. We went to visit my son in the mountains and it handled like a dream. I'm sold. I was dissuaded by a salesman at a different store from buying them there. There was even a mix-up on the quote at Pep Boys but they came through and honored their quote. I'll definitely be a return customer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Huantexas Great tires for my PT Cruiser.
I needed to make a road trip from the ATX to FT Bragg, NC to attend PME, but was in need of back tires on my PT Cruiser. The car came with two Hankook Ventus V2 Concept H437 tires up front which appeared to be in great condition. I did some research and was pleased with the conclusions so I figured I'd get another two to replace the worn, mismatched set in the rear. I found the tires online at pepboys.com, set up an early morning appointment for the next day and had the tires mounted. My trip to NC started off in hot, scorching Texas weather and concluded in a summer-storm deluge in NC. The tires were great throughout the trip. They ride comfortably, quiet and with enough grip and tenacity to instill confidence in dry or wet weather conditions. The tires still look new, have held the requisite air pressure (I plus-up cold tires; old advanced technical driving instructor trick for increased handling) and ride smooth with no noticeable side-wall roll, sign of abnormal wear or disfigure. I'm very pleased with the tires and the service I received from Pepboys. I usually turn my own wrenches, but I'll be back to see the "boys" for my next tire needs.

This is the 3rd time I bought this product, twice on my SUV and this is the 1st time for my Honda Civic, and I will not buy this for anyone of my cars.

Rated 3 out of 5 by adoihcj Good value for the money
I've put over 500 miles on these tires (2011 Mazda 3 iTouring) and here's my honest review:
The pros are that they are very quiet, and the ride is extremely smooth. The price was good, and the look of the tires (I especially like the rim savers) are very nice. I drove them in the rain one time so far, and the traction is excellent. I would hydroplane in the OEM tires, and now that is no longer the case.
The cons are that compared to the OEM tires (I had Bridgestone Turanza's), these are obviously a cheaper tire for many reasons. The steering now feels loose. Cornering is not as sharp as before, and there's a vibration in the steering wheel when driving around the 70+ MPH mark. The vibration NEVER happened in the OEM tires.
Overall, I'm very happy with the quietness, smooth feel and wet traction, but I'm disappointed with the vibration I'm feeling at high speeds and cornering. I'm going to take them back to Pep Boys to have them re-balanced, because maybe that's the issue.

Rated 4 out of 5 by openboater Fun and knowledgeable about their job
Kinda hated to miss the promotion where you get a Visa gift card. My roommate got the tires and an alignment for the price I paid for my tires alone. It was an emergency so I had to get them but was counting on the refund.

Rated 5 out of 5 by chrisbw95 Hankook Tires for my Beetle
Went in to Pep Boys for a different set of tires (next level down I believe) and was told during installation that tires I wanted was not available and if I'd like to get these instead which was told to be better then the set I wanted. Pricier then the others but said yes. Drove home and immediately felt the difference. Tires seem "right" for this car and much more balanced. Handling around curves and in rain was better then expected. So far so good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Johnboy A very nice Tire on wet roads and Quiet
My VW Jetta is known for front wheel road noise. This tire is very quiet, The Tire is great in the rain, and handles great on dry pavment. Over all a nice tire for the price.The team at Pep boys in Hamburg had the 4 of them installed in about 1 Hr. I could no be more pleased with the service.
