Hankook Tire will equip the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra Heavy Duty models with Dynapro MT2 tires.
Both the Silverado and Sierra, two of GM’s most durable heavy-duty pickup trucks, will be fitted in the size LT275/70R18.
The Dynapro MT2, Hankook’s Red Dot Award-winning new generation mud-terrain tire, is designed with off-road traction and on-road durability in mind. The Dynapro MT2 features an aggressive connected shoulder tread, V-shape shoulder scallops and stone-ejecting technology that provides additional rigidity, traction and protection against punctures. Engineered with 3D simulation software, the Dynapro MT2 comes equipped with an optimized terrain-strike tread design and a high turn-up three ply sidewall that provides added protection against off-road abrasions while also maintaining on-road comfort and functionality.
“When designing the Dynapro MT2, we took special care in its steering functionality and driving comfort,” said Hyunjun Cho, Head of Hankook Tire OE Division. “As a result, though it is an off-road tire, its on-road performance is quite pleasant.”
“The Dynapro MT2 is equipped with the most aggressive tread pattern that we have ever offered, making it a great fit for the heavy-duty Silverado and Sierra,” said Kijong Kil, Vice President of Central R&D Center. “We developed the Dynapro MT2 with a new split mold technology and 3D simulation software that allows for a more aggressive tread with a seamless sidewall that helps reduce noise and improve durability.”
