Two Hankook Dynapro Styles Earn OE Spot on Nissan Frontier
Hankook Tire Co. Ltd. is supplying Dynapro HT and Dynapro AT-M tires for original equipment fitments for the Nissan Frontier mid-size pickup truck.
The fitments include the all-season Dynapro HT in sizes P265/70R16T and P265/60R18T, and the all-terrain Dynapro AT-M in size P265/75R16T.
As an all-season tire for light trucks and SUVs, Hankook says the Dynapro HT provides drivers with greater treadwear and rolling resistance, plus improved snow traction. Dynapro HT’s 3.5% wider tread offers driving comfort as well as a longer lifespan. The tire also utilizes a stiff center block and an advanced snow kerf design to provide steering response in addition to reduced noise across all driving conditions.
The all-terrain Dynapro AT-M was designed to meet the performance needs of light trucks, vans, and sport utility vehicles both on and off the road. Its tread and sidewall design resemble tiger teeth, giving it an aggressive look as well as driving capability. The tire’s wraparound tread also guards against possible deformation while providing traction especially in muddy or snowy conditions.
The Frontier is the 6th brand of Nissan Group joined with Hankook Tire in company with Altima, NV200, Paladin, Qashqai, and Rogue.
"We are proud to announce the new OE supply contract for Nissan Frontier.” says Mr. Seung Hwa Suh, vice chairman and CEO of Hankook. “The new OE supply contract proves Hankook Tire’s products are highly recognized as a global premium brand with technological excellence once again. Hankook Tire will continue to raise its standing in the OE business by maintaining its heavy investment in R&D in order to meet the high standards of leading global automakers.”
