I am looking to switch from bfg at's to Hankook dynapro mt's RT03. Any advice on how they ride? Look great for a decent price. It's between those or Trail Graps. Looking at 285/70/17 for hank's or 285-295/70/17 T graps.

Yeah the hankooks looked tempting but I know there's noooo way they'd compare to my bfg muds lasting 4+ years now. Imo hankook has a lot of proving to do..Def trails. If you want tire life + looks, bfg km2s are proven.

I sell wheels and tires and Hankook is one of my biggest sellers and have had 2 people buy the MT Hankook tires so far and have told me they are fairly quiet, ride good and dont wear too fast, but I guess that depends on your driving style and how you put them to use. Ive been in business for 2 years and am a small shop slowly growing so not many clients so far, so not too many reviews yet but I hope it helped some

not around here, they get walked over by mud grapplers in every way, even millage!
whoa whoa whoa...NITTO MUD GRAPPLERS?? BETTER MILEAGE THAN BFG'S??? :rofljest: As if tires are any different where you live? Mud grapplers are known for being one of the loudest, worst wearing tire created. I personally don't care for the looks either...Don't know why you possibly get the idea a mud grappler could outlive bfg, that's just plain ridiculous. Brb, I'm going to go take a picture of my 4.5 year old BFG muds and you tell me how well they are wearing...

my brother has the dynapros on his z71 and they have actualy done realy good. they have about 20-25k miles and they still look real good i bet they have another 15k easy. they have a littel hum to them but not loud at all, with the radio on low youwouldnt hear them at all. couldnt tell you about how they do in mud but going to our deer camp can get realy bad in december and he has never goten stuck.

Like I've told you before, they were probably the Load Range C version, they sell P and T versions. If she was running the P version then of course an F250 is gonna fuck em up :rofl2:

My buddy's entire family runs Hankook ATMs on their trucks (all Dodge Cummins, farm trucks, worked hard) and they get good mileage out of them. 20k on my buddy's '10 and they look almost new. His dad has 35k on his '10 and they look about the same. On his 06 Megacab he had one set on from new until 50k then another from 50k til he traded it at 100k. Same story for the rest of the trucks. The only ones that went bald too fast were the ones on my buddy's 08 cause he did a bunch of burnouts :rofl2:

Buddy BFG muds are shit, as soon as they get a little old they loose there shape they get rough as fuck and km2s wear down like a bitch. I had 35" hankook dynopro mt's and I loved them, awsome wear and they worked realy well in deep snow and mud they also had awsome road manors.

lol like I said I have pictures of my 4.5 year old bfg muds that are still on my truck now. If you'd like to see them and still tell me they've "lost their shape" or whatever your crazy..

BFG is one of the first companys to make mud tires bro. I think they put the money into engineering to last far before hankook decided to start making tires and I have the proof on my phone, if it would just upload...I'm gonna try again.

Hell you can see them in my sig too I just took that pic mother's day.

rotation, pressure, and driving style has everything to do with it. Bet they didnt rotate nearly as often as they should and take corners entirely too fast. Would take a bfg over hankooks anyday

Your buddy got shit tires or doesent take very good care of his shit.

I bought my old set of bfg MTs with half tread and they lasted me over two years of driving and are still on another truck as rollers.

My buddy has a set of 37x12.5 KM2s on his duramax right now that are close to two years old and look almost new. I will have to find out what he has for Kilometers on them buts its up there as he does a fair bit of highway driving. I would put them up against a simular sized irok in the snow or mud any day.

i love my hankook MT's. They are 10 ply, so stiff as fuck. They are loud, but not nearly as bad as the nitto M/T's. Mine are wearing great, i have around 25k on them. and if i didnt fuck up my alignment on 2 of them, i could get a lot more. i will prolly get atleast another 10k out of them.

They dig, and i have never been close to stuck, gone through many muddholes in 2wd.

i will either buy them again, or get some Mickey Thompsons next time around.

haha thank you!!! bfg's are freaking amazing. Then again, I baby the hell out of my truck BUT also I've only rotate my tires ONCE in 4.5 years! I really glad you posted a picture of your buddys dmax on 37's because I'm about to buy those same exact tires so I've been trying to dig for picz.

piotrowski, i hear you I guess but it's all about personal experience with tires. Theres a million "well my buddy had this and that" type stuff. All I know is I owned the tires, and I know how well they wear but I feel you on posting your experiences.

To the original guy trying to tell me mud grapplers outlive bfg's, you're ridiculous haha that's just simply not true at all and you shouldn't say things like that because you could give someone the wrong idea and they end up buying the WRRROONGGG tire. Other than that...
