Hankook dynapro mt

Does anyone have experience with the hankook dynapro mt tires. What kind of tread life can I expect?

I read that. That is one of the reasons I got them. I was just wondering about tread life since it's my daily driver

Honestly, I think with any MT, or any tire, be diligent checking tire pressure, rotate and balance them regularly and you should get a lot of miles out of them.

Good points! Just having them balanced can be a pain since I don't have the equipment and tire shops alway over tighten the lugs. Had one shop bend a rim on one of my other cars

since i run Beadlocks it was next to impossible to find a shop that would balance them for me. I found a small shop that would, they have my business my respect and my referrals... I make sure when I send someone to that shop that they let them know I sent them. Basically what I'm saying is build a relationship with the shop and will benefit both of you! Don't be afraid to let them know your concerns or issues you've had in the past.

I do have a good relationship with the guy who mounted them. I just hope they don't to be balanced again

As tires wear they need to be balanced. Unless you're going to go with balancing beads that do it automatically... I don't think I've ever had my tires not need to be balanced. My shop throws the tires on the balancer if they're out of balance the strip the weights off and then rebalance them. On average 2-4 ounces does it not bad considering I am running a bead lock and a heavy mud tire.

I used to run these a few years ago in a 32". I LOVED these tires and they had amazing grip. I like them better than my current Cooper Discoverer STTs (35"). The Cooper's sidewalls are stiff so I really have to air down for them to flex.

I highly recommend those Dynapro MTs. Great tire.

Right at 22,000 miles. We live on a gravel road and my Jeep spends most of its time on gravel or on the trails. It does see some highway miles, usually to certain wheeling destinations.
