Hankook DynaPro AS RH03 Tires Have Mixed Reviews

Will You Love or Hate This Hankook Tire?

Hankook Tires
The Hankook DynaPro AS HC03 Tire has very mixed reviews from regular folks that have bought them. We have scoured and read many reviews to find the common concerns among those that absolutely hate these tires, and those that think these tires are great. People that truly dislike these tires complain of poor traction in wet conditions, and terrible tread life. Those that love these tires praise the tire for it's long tread life and smooth ride.



About Hankook DynaPro AS Tires

  • These tires are Speed Rated at Q, which is only 99 miles an hour. They are considered All-Season tires, and even have M/S ratings. The general opinion of the DynaPro AS however is to keep them off the dirt.
  • These tires are frequently used as Original Equipment (O.E.) for light trucks, vans, and SUV's.
  • The tread on the DynaPro RH03's was developed with an interlocking intermediate rib and high sipe density. This is meant to bring a smoother and more quiet ride, as well as improve traction and performance.
  • The reviews do support a smooth and quiet ride, but the traction and performance appears to be lacking in any condition other than dry.


Why do many folks Love their Hankook DynaPro AS Tires?

It appears that those that love the DynaPro AS tires don't drive in any dirt or gravel. That's the biggest reoccurring complaint that I was seeing in the online tire reviews.

The price point is good, so if you can get 60K or more then you'll be a happy customer. Many people are saying that they have these tires on their trucks and vans and are getting good miles.

The interlocking rib design in the tread pattern must be working. People are saying that the ride is nice and smooth. However, even those that praise these tires say you must rotate and balance the tires regularly.


What kind of driver are you... and what driving conditions do you drive in?

As stated earlier, the reviews are very mixed on these Hankook tires. Before moving forward on a great discount tire deal, make sure that you're not going to be among those that really dislike the DynaPro AS.

If you drive in dirt, gravel, mud, or light snow on any regular basis... you should probably steer clear of these tires.

There have been many reviewers that say that the sidewalls on these tires are very thin. People are basically holding their breath in fear of a flat if they're ever on dirt or gravel. Yeah, it appears to be that bad.

However, if you're in a dry area and are almost always on paved roads then this may be a great tire for you. Be sure you get a great deal though because there are many competing tires that will offer that smooth quite ride, but also will have good traction in rain.

So... your typical driving conditions will make you love or hate Hankook DynaPro AS



Some Positive Hankook DynaPro Tire Reviews

  • "I really love these tires. The ride is nice and I don't find that there is much noise at all. Good bang for the buck."
  • I'm at 40K miles on my DynaPro AS tires. I think I'll be getting at least another 20."
  • "I have read many of the bad reviews on these tires, and I cannot say that I have experienced any of them. I bought these for my F150 a couple years ago and have really enjoyed them. The ride is nice, and the tread seems to be holding up just fine."
  • "I have put 65,000 miles on my Hankook tires. They are on a cargo van for work and I think the traction is good. I have never taken the van in snow, but in the rain they do fine."


Negative Tire Reviews for DynaPro

  • "These tires have been fine for street driving, but anytime you go down a gravel road be prepared for a flat."
  • "The sidewalls are so thin that small rocks easily puncture them. Usually where the flat sidewall section meets the wraparound part of the tread."
  • "These tires are only good if they're strictly driven on the street"
  • "I'll never buy Hankook Tires again. I have 30K miles on these and am having to replace already"
  • "WORST tires I have ever owned. I drive these tires in varied conditions including rain, mud, some snow and ice. I have lost traction many many times, even in normal light rain."
  • "I cannot recommend these tires to anyone. The traction is so bad that I don't feel safe when driving in the rain."
  • "Hankook DynaPro tires wear very unevenly. I drive in mud from time to time and that's probably why. I have read reviews on how bad these tires are off road and I agree. The tires are worthless if driven in mud"
