These tires handle extremely well on wet roads, and the zig-zag pattern on the edge of the tire helps you get that extreme grip on icy roads.

The RF10 is an M + S rated radial tire with a non-directional stepped and angled tread to give you the grip and stick you’ve been waiting for in a light truck tire. What gives the Hankook all-terrain RF10 tires an edge is their wide footprint, around 8 percent wider than most of their competitors.

Looking at the tread blocks, notice the scalloped grooves, these are what help you keep your grip on challenging off-road trails, while the angled side tread blocks work to help evacuate mud and give added traction when cornering.
The RF10 is available in wheel sizes 15 to 22 inches, 45 to 85 series aspect ratios and R, S and T speed ratings. When looking to purchase this tire, its good to remember that the Hankook Dynapro ATM RF10 fits a good variety of makes and models, including Dodge Ram, GMC Yukon, Nissan Armada, and Toyota 4Runner, but comes with some differences in type and warranty.

Tough, Durable Steel Belted Radial Traction
This is a radial all-terrain mud tire, which means it’s internal construction consists of a high-strength steel belt, reinforced with nylon which gives you added durability, helps the tire keep its form over time, and increases steering stability. The tiered side grooves help keep your tire tread healthy and functioning by preventing small stones from being lodged in your RF10. Sidewalls are a tender spot for many tires, but the RF10’s are constructed of a hefty gauge rubber wraparound tread.
The wraparound side lugs are designed to protect the sidewalls from damaging scrapes, punctures and cuts as you take in the rocky terrain and also helps the tire to keep its form in case it loses a bit of air. These tires are so tough, that some drivers have driven these tires to the point of maxing out their weight capability and still report Sturdy and secure handling. The entire tire is abrasion resistant.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
1. Is it really important that I pay attention to weight, or can I fudge it?
Yes. No matter how tough a tire is listed, it is still important to pay attention to its load capabilities, as going over the maximum allotted weight can not only damage your expensive tires, but also result in blowouts, and that is not something you want happening on an isolated off-road trail.
2. How will these tires react to potholes, can I just go right over them?
That is not a good idea. While the RF10 is an EXCEPTIONALLY aggressive tire, with thick rubber sidewalls and a tough tread, it is not a good idea to smack into potholes. Even if your tires suffer no abrasion or punctures, you may slam your tires alignment out of kilter. If traffic is heavy and you’ve no choice, simply slow down and hit it as gently as possible.
3. What is my PSI and how can I check it?
PSI means per square inch and is how your tire pressure is measured. Measuring your RF10’s pressure is simple, just purchase a standard tire pressure gauge. Take the top cap off of your valve stem and place the gauge on the stem which will give you your reading. Your PSI will depend on the size of RF10’s you have, so always check to make sure as either over or under inflated tires can cause issues.
