Hankook dynapro ATM vs dynapro MT

Hello everyone. I was hoping you can give me some advise from real owners or former owners of Hankook dynapro ATM and/or MT tires. I was going to purchase the Goodyear Duratracs but there are not availalble here in Puerto Rico unless it is special order. I checked tirerack and other sites but shipping cost is way too high.

I decided to look for an alternative and came across the two tires mentioned above. I would say i will use them for 70% road driving, 20% trail and slight mud off-roading, 10% really muddy of-roading.

Which one you guys think I should pick? I like the way the MT looks, but I'm worried about the tread wear and the traction on the road when it is raining. On the other side, the ATM is cheaper and looks good but not as good as the MT.

I can't help you with the Hankook A/T, but I have the Hankook Dynapro MT LT 295/75x16 and the off-road use is STUPENDOUS-snow/rocks/sand-

However my use is 90% off-road so That can't helop you too much-

I guess it all depends on that one time. You will love the A/T over the M/t for almost every type of driving you do. They are just better overall tires and ride the road better.

But all it takes is the one time you get into real mud and then you will see what the M/T's are for. The M/t will get you out of mud when a A/T will set there and spin.

I've got the M/T's, 33/12.50/15's they're a beast on the trail! A bit noisy on the road, but hey, look at em...

Jimbox, do you air down for snow? Mine seem to "Float" right on top of the white stuff, I just figured it's b/c they're 12.50 wide and I've always thought a more narrow tire is better in the snow.

I'm pretty sure they are a beast, but I read a review somewhere that they weren't that good on wet roads and that the tread wear is not the best. Is this true?

Any MT will wear out faster then a AT in the same tire just because of the design. Thats why most MT's have no mileage warranty. And yes AT's will ride wet roads better then MT's but I have no issues with my MT's.

Good to know! I was looking for an explanation that was easy to understand, your is great!!! Thank you!

That being said, and taking into consideration my driving, I guess I'll go with the AT. I just hope I don't get stock anywhere because of them.

You can buy a tire with 100% traction/wear reviews and if you aren't driving CORRECTLY--you get stuck-all the time-

Gotta learn how to drive the jeep, then tires HELP !!

You are right, that is exactly why I said that I hope not get stuck because of the tires, I know there is a higher probability that it will be the driver

I was just offered Kelly tires Kelly TSR for $240 each. Never heard anyone talk about that brand so I'll check them out too.

Goodyear owns Kelly tires by the way. Never had the AT's in Kelly but have had their tires on cars before with no complaints. It has a similar but not exact look of the Goodyear Duratrac which is a decent tire

I just looked at some research on the Kelly, they basically are Kelly's version of a Duratrac. Goodyear does make them and they seem to be getting very good reviews from what i read so far. You might want to research them more

Thanks! I was just reading that goodyear makes them. they look better than the Hankook and are better priced. I think I go with Kelly Safary TSR but I'm still trying to a good review about them. So far all I have read good things about them.

The $240 price tag is because is here in Puerto Rico, everything here is expensive. ordering from the Internet is way more expensive because of the shipping cost. Is not the same when a big company buys a whole truck and split the shipping among the items than when a single person buys 5 tires. To give you an idea, shipping cost is between $400 and $500
