Hankook Dynapro MT2 Earns OE Spot on 2 Pickups
Hankook Tire America Corp. is providing original equipment tires for the heavy duty models of both the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra.
The Dynapro MT2 tires, in size LT275/70R18, will be fitted on both heavy duty pickups.
The Dynapro MT2 is a mud-terrain tire with an aggressive connected shoulder tread, V-shape shoulder scallops and stone-ejecting technology that provide additional rigidity, traction and protection against punctures. The tire has an optimized terrain-strike tread design and a high turn-up three ply sidewall that provides added protection against off-road abrasions while also maintaining on-road comfort and functionality.
"When designing the Dynapro MT2, we took special care in its steering functionality and driving comfort," said Hyunjun Cho, head of Hankook's OE tire division. "As a result, though it is an off-road tire, its on-road performance is quite pleasant."
"The Dynapro MT2 is equipped with the most aggressive tread pattern that we have ever offered, making it a great fit for the heavy-duty Silverado and Sierra," said Kijong Kil, vice president of the Central R&D Center. "We developed the Dynapro MT2 with a new split mold technology and 3D simulation software that allows for a more aggressive tread with a seamless sidewall that helps reduce noise and improve durability."
