CS5 is a fantastic tire, but not XL load. In fact, pretty far below the 101 required.Finally got rid of the junk Hankooks and went with Cooper CS5.
The hankooks had about 18k miles on them and were shot 4-6/32nds left.
The Metris is a very heavy van (with my wife and me aboard i would estimate my vans weight at about 5200lbs, and fully loaded is 6700 and chänge) running on very small tires for that weight.
Pickups and SUVs this size have much larger rubber than this. I don’t know what the tire life will be on my Defenders- I currently have 29,000 on my first properly weight specced set of them, and they don’t seem like they need replacement any time soon, I got 42k out of a 97H tire. I would consider 45k or so about what you can expect. At least these tires are relatively inexpensive ($150ish?)
They are world-class. The only media reviews you'll find are from Europe. I have them on my Audi Avant and used lots of Entryre 1.0I just ordered the Nokian Entyre 2.0 with a great Labor Day deal. Discount Tire price-matched Simple Tire.com to go along with DT rebate. Factory Hankooks are done at only 23k miles.
Sure hope the E 2.0 live up to the reviews I found online.
Your automotive knowledge is... fascinating. I wonder where you came across such specious malarkey.

Have had the tires for 44 months and 58,000 miles, have not rotated tires in 3 years. Tire have always had zero road noise and even wear despite not be rotated. I would definitely recommend.
