Hankook Adds New Tire to Dynapro Line

Nov. 2, 2023

Hankook Tire America Corp. is expanding its popular Dynapro line with the addition of the Dynapro HPX all-season touring tire for SUV applications. 

Available in January 2024, the Dynapro HPX is on display at Hankook’s booth during this week’s SEMA Show. 

“Dynapro is Hankook’s flagship offering for SUVs, offering performance and reliability to drivers in a variety of driving conditions and scenarios,” says Rob Williams, president of Hankook Tire America Corp. 

“The Dynapro HPX builds on our success in this category by providing drivers with an all-season touring option that delivers extended tread life, enhanced safety and outstanding comfort.” 

The Dynapro HPX features a variety of innovations, including a new, all-season compound “to spread ground pressure,” according to Hankook officials; the company’s 3D GripKontrol supes for improved snow braking, wet braking and handling versus its predecessor; and knurling technology and optimized, multi-pitch sequencing for enhanced driver comfort. 

With the launch of the Dynapro HPX, Hankook’s Dynapro line now includes five tires for SUVs and light trucks. These include the Dynapro HT, an all-season highway tire; the Dynapro AT2 Xtreme, an all-terrain tire; the Dynapro XT, which has been designed for rugged-terrain driving; and the Dynapro MT2, “for the toughest, muddiest environments,” according to Hankook officials. 

The Dynapro HPX will be available in 39 sizes, fitting wheels ranging from 16 inches to 22 inches in diameter, with speed ratings up to V. The tire comes with a 70,000-mile limited tread wear warranty. 

“The SUV segment continues to grow and drivers are looking for a versatile product,” Williams told MTD. “Market demands are very clear. A lot of the SUVs you see... everybody is entering that segment (and) looking for that premium product and diversity within the product. We want to make sure we fit the majority of the market.” 

“Our dealer partners have come to trust” the Dynapro product, he explained. “They know it sells well. Consumer acceptance has been extremely strong. We’ve done some activation events recently,” including a big Jeep event in Colorado, to help enhance awareness of the line. “The key is to get the product in front of the consumer. And we have a Dynapro booth set up at SEMA. 

“We’re proud to round out the Dynapro family. We want to meet the needs of anybody who’s driving on the highway, all the way up through (offering) complete off-road products. We’re proud of the fact we can go from a highway tread to off-road and everything in-between.”
