It's hard to believe there is 1TB usb thumb drive, I would have thought 256GB, would be the maximum. I guess times move on.

I understand your scepticism, if you were a little closer I'd be more than happy to have you come for a drive in my GC with 70,000k's on the Dynapros. In all transparency I will declare that I have six wheels fitted with these tyres and rotate them through.

Cheers

I run Cooper SRX H/T on my Grand now because it's rarely used for anything more off road than a beach or fire trail run, which Highway tyres are great for.

I generally found myself running out of wheel travel / clearance before I ran out of tyre so off road biased all terrains/mud terrains were a waste of time.

The Cooper SRX size is 265/65r18, only slightly bigger than stock but stock size looks too small if your is lifted (personal opinion).

BFG KO2 is extremely popular for good reason if you need an All Terrain.

Not really . rotate tyres every 5000km , ******** on tyre pressures . I only have 4 tyres in the rotation as well . Personally doesn't bother me what you believe , i know what i got out of my tyres and other dynapro owners all say the same thing .


Make from that what you will but i know that unless hankook change the tyre compound i won't run anything toerh than these . I've had coopers , bridgestone on other cars and nothing has given me the amount of km's without comprimising safety like the hankooks have .


Granted in the ast 10000 grip was reduced and i did get tail happy in the wet but after 90K i could live with it

My local quoted me $290 each for the Dynapro’s, $350 for the Coopers AT3’s

They had the Dynapro’s there and they look nice, I will shop around. Online stores want the world to post to Tassie.
