Welcome to this Hankook Dynapro HP2 RA33 review. What we have here is a high-performance all-season tire for premium or luxury SUVs. Fortunately, this also happens to be a premium tire with an affordable and friendly price.
With that being said, is the Hankook Dynapro HP2 a true high-performance tire? And similar to other sporty tires, does it sacrifice ride comfort and road silence to deliver prodigious amounts of grip on a variety of surfaces? This review will answer your questions, and more.
Sport utility vehicles can be fitted with many choices of tires. This will all depend on how the SUV is actually utilized on a daily basis. Rough roads will necessitate the need of all-terrain tires. But if your premium SUV is mostly driven on smoothly paved roads, the Hankook Dynapro RA33 is a valid choice. This is not an SUV tire for rugged off-road trails, although it can handle a bit of sand and loose gravel.

What vehicles are perfect for the Hankook Dynapro HP2 RA33?
The Hankook Dynapro HP2 RA33 is not only great for midsize luxury SUVs. It is also a great choice for smaller SUVs such as the Audi Q5, Porsche Macan, Mercedes GLC-Class, BMW X3 and X4, Volvo XC60, and even the Alfa Romeo Stelvio!
OF course, the Hankook Dynapro HP2 RA33 is also perfect for the BMW X5, Porsche Cayenne, Audi Q7 and Q8, Lexus RX 350, Maserati Levante, and Acura MDX. Even smaller crossovers such as the Mazda CX-3 and CX-5, Jeep Patriot, Toyota RAV4, Nissan Rouge, Honda CR-V, and Jeep Cherokee will benefit from the brilliant all-season performance and competent handling of the Hankook Dynapro HP2 RA33.
However, if you have a properly fast SUV with large turbocharged or naturally-aspirated motors and sport suspension, you are better off with a proper set of ultra-high performance tires. I’m not saying the Hankook Dynapro HP2 is not good for high-speed driving. But SUVs that demand stronger and consistent grip may find this tire to be a bit lacking when the going gets tough.

How about comfort and road noise?
Without a doubt, the comfort levels of the Hankook Dynapro HP2 RA33 is top notch. After all, it is a tire designed for premium import and domestic sport-utility vehicles. The tire can roll comfortable over rough concrete and road undulations without breaking a sweat.
Unfortunately, road noise is not the strongest attribute of the Hankook Dynapro HP2. I was expecting the tire to be quieter than I imagined, but this is not the case. The tires are silent at low speeds but will be more talkative once you reach the upper limits of the speedometer. But even though the tires produced more tire roar than usual, the noise levels are not enough to upset the refinement of your premium SUV.
