Getting new tires. 275-70-R22.5
Budget allows me to get either:
1. Hankook AH37 J-Rated tire
OR
2. Sumitomo ST727 H-Rated tire

Any feedback would be appreciated.
I've heard positive things about both tires on this site.

Hankook has served me well for over 3 years, no flats or slow leaks and fairly smooth riding.


I don't think budget is a issue when buying those 2 brands you listed, they have proven themselves as good or better tires at a lower cost compared to higher cost tires that have had issues like Goodyear and Michelin.

Hankook has made a real name for itself. Quality tires at fair prices.

I'll buy Hankook again, they're good tires. Everything I have read about Sumitomo on this and other forums, lead me to believe you can't go wrong with either tire.

Hankook would be my first choice only because I never tried the Sumitomo,

Put 6 Hankook AH12s 11R22.5 on the back of my Dynasty 5 years ago and 30K miles. Did not balance and would buy again. In the 15+ years on here I’ve never read a negative comment on Hankook.

Agreed. Those 2 would be on my short list, regardless of price.

I was considering the Hankook but decided on Toyo M154 tires and they should be in the same price range. Toyos were recommended by a trucking company owner. But I don't think you can go wrong with the tires you are considering.

Thanks for the feedback. I too would like the TOYOs, but I could not find a TOYO in the 275/70 size, H-Rated anywhere in my area, and tire shops in this area don't cooperate well with online tire dealers.

I have purchased both Toyo and Hankook over the years. The Hankook tires are the best. My first set of Hankook tires had a 45,000 mile guarantee. At 100,000 mile, they still had enough tread to pass the yearly inspection. I love these tires and will always purchase Hankooks.
