Hankook Dynapro AT Review

These may be labelled as all-terrain tires, but the Hankook Dynapro AT RF08 is more of a mean-looking all-season designed for piling on the highway miles rather than heading off-road.

PROS

  • Fantastic on-road long life
  • Quite affordably priced
  • Quiet and comfortable

CONS

  • Limited off-road grip
  • Poor wet weather performance
  • Extremely limited sizes

A factory fitment on the Ford F-150 there are by default a lot of trucks running around with these Hankooks and there’s no shortage of opinions on them either.

As mentioned, it looks more rugged but the Dynapro AT doesn’t have many unique off-road features, apart from the reinforced tread on the sidewall to give extra protection and grip. The tread is designed to hold up well over time, although owners complain it’s almost like a magnet for rocks, which get trapped in the tread, reducing its overall capability and can lead to premature tire wear.

Despite the four circumferential grooves to help evacuate water from the contact patch, many owners complain the tread compound just isn’t sufficiently grippy in the wet.

Where this tire really seems to excel is in just packing on the miles in the dry. All Terrain tires have an expected tread life of around 55,000 to 60,000 miles and ones that don’t come with any sort of mileage guarantee often get considerably less. These, however, out-perform in tread life by a significant margin, with many owners reporting 70,000 miles, up to even 90,000 miles on a set, which is quite astonishing.

Other positive features include a relatively comfortable ride, while noise levels are also quite low, due to the fact that this isn’t really much of an all-terrain tire.

All this said, if you’re looking for a long lasting all-season tire, or if you’ve been pleased with the set currently on your F-150, then we’d recommend these. But if you’re looking for something that’s actually capable both on-road and off, then we’d recommend looking at the Hankook Dynapro AT2.

Hankook Dynapro AT Price

Pricing for the Hankook Dynapro AT comes in at just around $150 per tire, which is on the more affordable size for an all-terrain option.

Hankook Dynapro AT Warranty

Hankook does not back the Dynapro AT with any sort of mileage guarantee, however, expect to get a long life out of this tire.

It does come backed by the brand’s standard limited warranty. This covers defective tires for the first 2/32-inch of treadwear or first year of ownership (whichever comes first) with a free replacement. Tires deemed defective after that point and up until six years from the date of purchase will be replaced on a pro-rated basis.
