Hankook manufactures premium high-performance tyres for a wide range of vehicle categories from cars to trucks as well as for motorsport. Much of the development and production takes place in Europe for the European market, including original equipment for Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche and VW.
The new Dynapro AT2 delivers a superior blend of all-around performance in the all-terrain segment. Designed to strike a perfect balance between off-road traction and on-road stability. The extra biting edge provides more traction and stability in wet, snowy and dry conditions.
Multi-directional grooves and sipes Grooves and sipes are arranged to create better traction in any direction
Biting block edge Extra biting edge provides more traction and snow performance
Locking shoulder lugs Protruding mix of shoulder lugs provide additional off-road traction
Step block edge technology Step block edge technology acts as a sound barrier, which helps to reduce road noise that primarily emanates from the pattern groove
Long tread wear compound Makes tread life longer.
Reinforced under-tread gauge Increased belt durability and steering performance. Helps to prevent external damage.
Nylon-reinforced belts Increased belt durability and steering performance. Helps to prevent external damage.
High strength steel belt Improve steering and durability.
Reinforced carcass Improve ride comfort on the road.
Jointless bead wire Prevent bead separation when driving off-road with air pressure.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.
Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.
The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.
With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.
Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.
Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.
