I have these on my Lexus. They're awesome in the rain, great on dry pavement, have a 50k mile warranty on them, and are actually incredibly quiet. I'll be buying these again if I still have the car when they wear out. I'm a big fan of hankook lately. I've had Michelins, and Bridgestones on this car in the past, and these are by far my favorite tire and cost considerably less than either of my previous choices.

That Hankook Ventus V4 ES H105 is indeed a fine tire.

So I think I narrowed it down to these two. Do you think the ride and handling of an "w" rated tire will be that much better than a "h" as to justify the shorter treadlife warranty (10K fewer miles)?

Id Go With The One With The Higher Rated Miles...you Arent Going To Be Driving On A Track Where You Need More Traction Or Driving In "race" Situations Fast All The Time. (unless Youare By Yourself And Just Having Fun, But Thats Not Going To Be That Often)

Keep Them Rotated And You Will Get More Miles Than The Rating Says Too...

You pay an awful lot of money for that Michelin name when there's plenty of tires that will outperform it for quite a bit less money....

I've had Michelin's, and they weren't anything special... they were just expensive. The tread life stunk and they were loud from day 1.

Yeah buying tires is often difficult for me. Ive never used some of the lesser known brands so I was mainly going off the reviews and then the advice here
