Hankook Dynapro MT2 Review
The next-generation of Hankook’s mud-terrain tire, the Dynapro MT2 adds capability and durability in every area and even promises better on-road performance too.
- Added durability
- Impressive off-road grip
- Improved road noise
- Unknown tread life
Hankook’s most extreme off-road tire to date, the Dynapro MT2 makes use of an all-new “Terrain Strike” tread design developed to improve off-road grip, while minimizing road noise. The massive curved and jagged four-rows of tread lugs dig deep into loose earth, gravel, dirt and mud. And with plenty of void space, all that’s churned up, gets tossed away, preparing the tire to dig in again – ensuring you maintain grip as you drive.
The interior tread lugs make use of new interior sipes, which help to offer better wet and snow grip as well.
Unique stone ejectors between the shoulder tread lugs, help make sure larger stones don’t get caught in the tread – a leading cause of premature tire wear and diminished grip.
Critical for an MT tire is its durability. To protect the sidewall against getting slashed from sharp rocks, the shoulder tread lugs wrap down onto the sidewall to give added protection. This design cue alternates with additional pointed features, adding even more protection and helping deliver even more side-grip in deep mud.
And underneath both of these features is a 3-ply sidewall construction.
But that’s not all.
MT tires need to be durable and withstand plenty of impacts. To that end, the tire is made up a complex structure with reinforced carcass, steel belt and nylon belts. Hankook also gave the tire a jointless bead wire, ensuring the tire doesn’t separate from the rim during impacts.
All this, and we have to say we’re seriously impressive with the massive selection of sizes Hankook has on offer for this brand new tire.
Hankook Dynapro MT2 Price
Pricing for the Hankook Dynapro MT2 has yet to be released, but look for it to stay consistent with the original Dynapro MT, starting out at roughly $150 per tire and going up to almost $500 per tire.
Hankook Dynapro MT2 Warranty
Mud-Terrain tires like the Dynapro MT2 don’t come with a mileage warranty. That said, the Dynapro MT2 is still covered by Hankook’s limited warranty. This covers defects in materials and workmanship for the first 2/32-inch of treadwear. If a tire is deemed defective in that period it will be replaced free of charge. After that wear period and up until the final 2/32-inch of tread, Hankook will replace the tire on a pro-rated basis.
