Hankook DynaPro HT RH12 Tire Review & Rating
For drivers of all types of SUV’s, pickups and vans, the Hankook DynaPro HT RH12 is engineered to provide all-season traction, a lower rolling resistance and a more comfortable ride.
A premium all-season tread compound is molded into a symmetrical computer generated tread design that is created to maximize traction and grip, while also reducing road noise, which are areas in which this tire excels. Steering response is enhanced through the tire’s high stiffness continuous center rib.
Four circumferential grooves and zig-zag sipes around the tread increase wet road traction and grip, and evacuate water from under the tire. This not only reduces the risk of hydroplaning, but also adds more confidence when driving in rough conditions, which has been mentioned as a real plus by other drivers in reviews. The sipes biting edges enhance grip on snow or ice covered streets as well.
Inside the tire you will find two steel belts that are reinforced with spirally wrapped nylon for added strength and durability. They also promote more even tread wear and a longer tread life. Hankook backs this model up with a 70,000 mile tread guarantee. Sizes from 15-20 inches are available in both P-metric and LT models.
- Excellent all-season traction on dry, wet and light snow covered roads
- Crisp steering response
- Comfortable and quiet ride
- Would like to see a little longer tread life
- Handling is a bit soft
The Hankook RH12 provides mixed results it seems. While it does do more than a few things very well, it certainly has its faults to go along with it. You can expect to find solid traction on dry, wet and snowy roads for the most part, as well as very good steering response. The ride is comfortable on the highway and Hankook does include a 70K mile warranty on them.
Where we see problems is with the softer handling when cornering or changing lanes on the highway. The tire feels a bit mushy for our liking and we would like to see some added strength in the sidewalls. The other area that we feel could use some improvement in would be a bit longer tread wear. While not bad, we’ve heard a few drivers complain about it.
Overall, we rank the HT in lower middle of this category. Although this tire does not have any single glaring issue, we feel that there are a number of other tires that will give you much better year-round performance for your pickup, van or SUV.
