Nissan picks Hankook Dynapro for OE on Frontier

Japanese car giant Nissan has announced the Hankook Dynapro will come as original equipment (OE) on its popular Frontier mid-size truck.

The Nissan Frontier will come with either the highway all-season Dynapro HT (in sizes P265/70R16T and P265/60R18T) or the all-terrain Dynapro AT-M (in size P265/75R16T)

Hankook said the exclusive Nissan Frontier deal was “the latest example of Hankook Tire’s growing presence in the Light Truck Radial (LTR) business, especially in North America where demand for pickup trucks is relatively high.”

“By successfully supplying an expanded size range for the automaker’s mid-size pickup truck, Hankook Tire has been able to further strengthen its partnership with Nissan as well as raise its brand presence in the North American pickup truck OE market. Those Frontier pickups equipped with Hankook Tire’s OE products are exported to North America and Mexico,” the company said.

Hankook Tire vice chairman and chief executive Seung Hwa Suh said, “We are proud to announce the new OE supply contract for Nissan Frontier. The new OE supply contract proves Hankook Tire’s products are highly recognized as a global premium brand with technological excellence once again. Hankook Tire will continue to raise its standing in the OE business by maintaining its heavy investment in research and development in order to meet the high standards of leading global automakers.”

A bit about the tires

Hankook says the Dynapro HT provides drivers with greater treadwear, enhanced rolling resistance, and improved snow traction. Dynapro HT’s 3½ percent wider tread offers superior driving comfort as well as a longer lifespan. The tire also utilizes a stiff center block and an advanced snow kerf design to provide heightened steering response in addition to reduced noise across all driving conditions.

Hankook Tire’s all-terrain Dynapro AT-M was designed to meet the performance needs of light trucks, vans, and sport utility vehicles both on and off the road.

The company says its “innovative tread and sidewall design resemble tiger teeth, giving it an aggressive look that enhances vehicle style as well as driving capability.” The tire’s wraparound tread also guards against possible deformation while providing outstanding traction, especially in muddy or snowy conditions.
