I already searched, with no success. Does anyone know anything about these tires? They are cheap compared to other mt tires. All I know about them is that they are a Korean company that's been around for quite awhile.

Hey I have a Co-Worker that had those M/T, Price was around $600 with tax. However if you don't care about the side wall then go for it cause they're only 2PLY, But if you like the 3Ply then don't get it. Thread itself look good but not as nice as what I have on mine the KM2. The size he had on was 31/10.5/15r. Hope this help you a bit:)

You are correct about the tires being Korean. I have sold quite a few of them without any problems. They smell like moldy camel shit and like others have said, they have two ply sidewalls. Other than that, they aren't bad for an inexpensive mud terrain tire.

yep hankooks are korean. And I too cant complain about them. I had 30k on mine before I had a blowout, and balljoint issues killed another one. I havnt looked at the nexen, but hell, as long as you like them, and they will handle the type of terrain you intend on driving, then go for it.

Most of the tire manufacturing has gone overseas. It's a shame, but it is what it is. Even the big box stores sell tires mostly made overseas. Such as Toyo's from Les Schwab. It's actually rather difficult to find tires made here in the US.

The Toyo/Nitto off road line is made in White, Ga.

from what I've read...
Toyo tires are made in Japan...

Both Toyo and Nitto are owned/controlled
by Toyo Tire and Rubber Co. LTD Sendai, Japan

2011 there was a wee recall on Toyo rubbers.
^ excludes USA made/stamped rubbers tho'


I'm not a fan, would seem. ;)

The Hankook Dynapro MT is Made In China. Hankook is a Korean Company and "Hankook" means "Korean" in Korean.

I've sold a lot of Toyo tires, and not one of them has been marked "made in the USA". Most are made in Japan, as mentioned above. I have seen some made in China also. But, as I said before, most tires are now made overseas. Pretty tough to find USA made tires.

Crazy. That's the first one I've seen with that stamp. I wonder when they started doing that? Unfortunately, it doesn't usually make sense money wise to build tires in the US.

Just for the record, I haven't seen this one in person...so they still don't exist. :flipoff4:
