Hankook DynaPro HP RA23 Tire Review & Rating
The DynaPro HP RA23 from Hankook is mainly used as original equipment on many of today’s pickups, crossovers and SUV’s like the Dodge Journey, Hyundai Vera Cruz among many others. The RA23 is engineered to deliver all-season traction and handling, in addition to a more comfortable ride.
An all-season silica enhanced tread compound and aggressive sporty tread pattern increase dry traction and cornering grip. Wider shoulder blocks and the tire’s continuous center rib provide more responsive steering and stability throughout the speed zone.
The Traction Oriented Tread design technology and silica compound are made to further increase wet handling, as well as light snow traction. We would like to be able to say this tire handles very well on wet pavement, but it seems to be lacking to a degree.
Inside the tire you will find two steel belts with nylon wrapped reinforcement for added strength and durability. They also promote more even tread wear, and the polyester cord body increases ride comfort as well. Hankook provides a 50,000 mile tread guarantee on this model, and the tire comes in 16-18 inch sizes.
- Excellent dry traction
- Steering response is very good
- Comfortable riding tire with minimal road noise
- Better than average treadwear
- Wet handling could be improved
- Winter traction
This original equipment tire provides good dry traction and cornering abilities for most applications. Steering response is more than adequate, and ride comfort is above average. You won’t find excessive road noise on this model as well.
On the other hand, wet traction and handling could be better. We would recommend using a little extra caution when driving on wet surfaces. Winter traction is average on light snow covered roads, but heavy snow and ice is not what this all-season tire was designed for. That’s fine because it is not advertised as a winter tire.
Overall, we rank the RA23 in the middle of the class for all-season truck/SUV highway tires.
