I am a huge a huge fan of hankooks overall. However, they do have a softer sidewall than more expensive tires. To me, this does not affect their performance, as I find the cornering capabilities equal or better than my RFTs. Equally, loss of traction is predictable as the loss of grip is very linear with these tires. However, it takes an adjustment in getting used to how they feel, which is not as immediate as the RFTs.
It comes down to priorities. PSS are $800 a pop in my market. Hankooks are $300. I can live with the mushier turn in and a firmer wallet!!
