Hankook DynaPro MT Review

After much thought I purchased a set of these. My old XJ gets daily driver backup and trail duty while being towed behind our motor home. I could not find a lot of info but the tread pattern looks similar to the KMs that were on my old YJ. Those worked great for mud,snow and sand dune duty.
These are 30x9.50 15s. They are a lot bigger than the 225s that were on it before. They measure 29" from the ground to top on the vehicle with 28 LBS of air.
Being new they are no louder then the old Firestone Destination LEs. That said they are quiet. For now?

My current wheels were used ones to replace the rusted originals, same style ratty.
So I ordered some plain steelies, Wheel Vintiques 15x8 from Summit. I painted them white to look like the ones on Jeeps til about 1986 .
The tires mounted easily. The most weight on any setup was 2 ounces per side to .75 on each side.
They track well on the highway at 60-70 MPH. I have no answer yet to wet pavement control.
Here are a couple of pics.

I run the Hankooks in a 33". I have no complaints at all, They ride smooth on the highway, aren't all that loud for what they are, and the price was decent. I also seem to get a lot of people staring at my tires and wheels for some reason too.

That's no joke, I really do. I just have cheap, but nice Ion Alloy 174's, nothing exotic. I really like these tires and they do ok on wet roads, although they aren't all that common in Phoenix, we did have periods of rain recently, and the absence of sipes went unnoticed by me. Off road traction seems good, but I haven't had it out much since getting the tires.

People stare at the Deer Hoof pattern! I've got'em in 35's. They've been great tires.

They've been getting more attention since they destroyed every other MT available in a popular magazine comparison a few years ago.
