Dynapro MT2 offers outdoor enthusiasts an all-access pass to adventure
Hankook Tire offers outdoor enthusiasts an all-access pass to adventure with the Dynapro MT2 (RT05). As the successor of the popular off-road-focused Dynapro MT, the Dynapro MT2 is equipped with the latest innovations from Hankook Tire, making it the most capable and extreme off-road tire Hankook has ever offered.
Engineered with 3D simulation software, Hankook leveraged the latest tire manufacturing processes to develop the Dynapro MT2’s Terrain Strike Tread Design. With an aggressive, high-void tread pattern, the tire is optimized for traction in mud, dirt, rock, sand and gravel surfaces. The tire’s sidewall features an integrated linking system that marries the shoulder and sidewall blocks increasing overall rigidity, traction, and protection from puncture and off-road abrasions.
“We’re excited to offer drivers a purpose-built tire designed to take on the toughest terrain both on and off-road,” said Hankook Tire Corp. Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Peter Jung. “Hankook’s new split mold technology improves sidewall durability and gives the tire a more seamless look by linking the shoulder and side wall blocks, making the Dynapro MT2 a perfect fit for the next generation of off-road vehicles.”
While the Dynapro MT2 is designed for extreme off-road performance with built-in stone ejectors and scooped shoulder blocks, the unified construction of the tire provides a compliant on-road feel which also assists in keeping road noise down to a minimum. For enthusiasts looking to conquer new terrain with the Dynapro MT2, the new aggressive Wraparound Tread and Sidewall Protection Shields both work to provide extra biting edges when crawling over rocks as well as additional rubber gauge construction to protect against punctures.
“Innovation is the key ingredient and driving force behind all of our premium products at Hankook,” said Hankook Tire America Corp. Director of Marketing Strategy Jong Jin Park. “The SUV and Light Truck market is stronger than ever, and the Dynapro MT2 is a response to that. It achieves a perfect balance of off-road capabilities, while maintaining a quiet, comfortable driving experience on the road.”
The Dynapro MT2 can be found on 2021 Chevrolet Silverados and GMC Sierra Heavy Duty models. Both the Silverado and Sierra, two of GM’s most durable heavy-duty pickup trucks, are fitted in the size LT275/70R18. Also, the Dynapro MT2 was expanded to include seven new sizes, bringing its total size offering to 48.

Including the partnership with General Motors, Hankook Tire successfully supplies original equipment tires for 46 automakers.
