Hankook DynaPro MT RT03 Tire Review & Rating
The Hankook DynaPro MT RT03 has been developed for off-road drivers who want the most performance on all types of terrain, while still maintaining some decent highway manners when taking things back on-road. Designed for drivers of pickups and other rugged SUV’s and 4×4’s, the RT03 sports some of the latest in Hankook tire technology for increased traction and handling.
Large V-shaped tread blocks enhance traction in mud, sand, dirt, gravel and other terrain, while the large voids keep the mud and other debris from packing the tread. Based on other driver reviews as well, this tire does a good job at self-cleaning itself. Along with increased sidewall rubber, they also prevent impact damage.
The snow traction and grip on this tire is equally as impressive. Despite the absence of sipes around the tread, this tire plows through even the heaviest of snow to get you where you want to be. Wet or ice covered roads are another story, and that is the biggest weakness with this model. The tread design is studdable for those who see a lot of packed snow and ice.
Noise levels are much lower due to the unique tread design with the tire. Inside the tread you will find two steel belts that are reinforced with nylon for added strength and durability. Many reviews from other drivers mention this tire maintains a better overall treadlife. This model is available in a black sidewall or raised white letters, depending on the size selected.
- Excellent traction on all terrains and in snow
- Tires are very good at self-cleaning
- Long lasting tread life
- Value for the money is best in class
- Wet traction has been an issue for some
There’s a reason why these Hankook MT RT03 tires are so popular, because they not only provide excellent performance on a variety of terrains, but also because the lower price and longer tread life make them an excellent value. This tire goes through just about anything and the tread design prevents debris from packing up. The only area we would like to see improvement would have to be traction on wet surfaces and on ice. That said, the upside to this tire far outweighs the negatives.
The ride is very good, and tread noise is much lower than you might expect. Better still is the longer tread life you can expect from this model. Just keep them rotated to get the most out of them.
Overall, while perhaps not up to the levels of the best in this class, this model maintains solid performance. If you’re looking for a good M/T tire with a budget-friendly price, these Hankook RT03 tires make a great option.
