Anyone with Hankook Dynapro MT

Is anyone running the hankook dynapro mt? What do think about them compared to other tires you've had.

Looking at it on Discount Tire, it looks more like an AT with small blocks and voids, and only .45" tread depth.

I always wanted to try them but never got around to it. They destroyed every other tire in the class in testing according to FourWheeler magazine. Like, none of the other MTs were even close from the sounds of it...especially in lateral traction.

i had them, if you're comparing them to most a/t's, they're pretty decent, however, if you're looking for an aggressive mt, this isn't it. Good things about them are they're very friendly on the street, do pretty well in snow and wet roads, if you're mostly hitting trails that don't have a lot of mud they do fine.

Yeah I saw it, that's why I was asking. Doesn't matter now I got a set of brand new Cooper STT in 265/75r16 for 500 bucks so I'm good on tires now. Thanks for the replies

Then how did they trounce the Pit Bull Rockers, in a one on one 4W Mag mud test?

I forgot which 4 x 4 magazine did the tests, but I read about mud tire tests they did in same mud bog on same Jeep.

They were only testing streetable radial MT. Not unstreetable boggers or the like.

Trxus MT performed the best in mud (and are OK on road, but certainly not the best on road).

The Hankook MT performed second best in mud (and are better than most on road).

The Hankook MT are excellent.

I ran them on my jeep. Size was 35x12.5x15 and they are very good tires. On the rocks they did good and on the street they where quiet and lasted a long time. Still have them sitting in the garage. Only reason I took them off was I upgraded to 37" Trxus Mt radials.

My two concerns with getting Hankook MT for myself are the allegedly rough ride, and no sipes.

Do they ride rough?

Are the size/shape treads sipeable? Looks to me like they might not hold up if siped.

In this test by Fourwheeler Mag, the Hankook was 1st overall against the PBR and others, and then they did another test with the Dynapro head to head against the Rockers. Same result, Hankook was better.

Yes, but in another test they (or was it another mag?) determined Trxus MT to be the best in mud.

It seems reasonable to me to believe those are both excellent in mud, but I have no doubts the Trxus MT beats all (streetable) MTs in mud, but the Hankook MT would certainly be better on road than a Trxus MT.

So I'd prefer the Kook for all around use. But still, rep for stiff ride and no sipes bothers me.

I had a set on my F250 work truck. They ride extremely rough. Took them in to the shop I bought them from to be siped and the manager said flat out that the tire wouldn't hold up. Bought a set of IPike winter tires for the ice instead.

ETA: No way in hell would I run them on my LJ. They were scary enough on slick roads in an F250 loaded heavy, let alone on my light Jeep. If you live somewhere that these tires wouldn't see much ice/sleet usage, they might be a good choice.

You've convinced me I don't want Hankook MT. Those two areas of weakness are where Trxus MT shine, but Trxus have other issues.
