    My new '19 LX has Hankook Kinergy GT 215 55R16 tires. I'm curious about the tread life because the last time I bought a car with allegedly sporty tires, the stock set lasted about 20K. But that was 20 years ago.

    If you have these Hankook tires, how long have they lasted in everyday usage? I don't expect to ride them hard; at my age that's just tempting fate.

    I drive about 95% highway on my '16 LX.
    I put 90000 on the original Hankook tires, same as yours.
    They seemed decent to me except in the snow.
