Hankook Dynapro MT RT03

I am looking at a set of 315/70/17's for my 08 JK with a 2.5 inch Rock Krawler lift. I have read that they are great on road and off road but haven't heard how they handle in sand. I'm moving to Corpus Christi, Tx and will be taking it on the beach. If anyone has had any experience with this or any other tire in sand, let me know! Thanks!

While tread design makes a difference on all surfaces, for sand, it's really air pressure and making a broad footprint that counts the most. With that in mind, Hankook does make a very high quality tire at a reasonable price. I would say make sure they have tough sidewalls since those are what will take the abuse when driving around aired down on sand.

I've had Hankook Dynapro MTs for over 3 years and they have been flawless-

Low noise on the hiwy and super on sand/shale/rocks and I will airdown for snow-

I don't have to airdown for sand, I have a Rubi/w gears and modified auto tranny-

I don't airdow for this hill either-

Great tires-

Absolutely love mine, on road is great! Very stiff tires, so you will need to run lower air pressure. I usually run maybe 28 psi jku.
