Seoul, South Korea – Hankook Tire is launching new SUV tire ‘Dynapro HPX’ offering utmost handling and comfortable ride.
Built for use on SUVs, Hankook Dynapro HPX is a touring all-season tire designed to provide refined handling, extra comfort and low noise throughout all seasons. With improved mileage performance, it can drive the longest distance among Hankook’s SUV products.
A new compound that’s highly wear-resistant and suitable for all-season driving has been adopted, and the tire contact patch area has been expanded. In addition, the latest noise reduction technologies and optimization of pitch sequence for suppressing certain frequency spectrum of tire noise allow comfort and quietness while driving.
Extended shoulder block with optimized rigidity is applied on the Dynapro HPX.

Offering stability either on dry, wet or snowy road, the Dynapro HPX comes in various sizes ranging from 17- to 22-inch rim diameters.
With the addition of the Dynapro HPX, Hankook’s Dynapro family is further upgraded to readily meet customer’s diverse needs for SUV tires. The family covers on-road with Dynapro comfort lineup as well as off-road with Dynapro all-terrain lineup and Dynapro extreme terrain lineup.
