Best Tyres For Africa

Hankook Tyres are using a special rubber compound, which is soft but very strong against wear and therefore delivering a high mileage and other good properties. Lots of engineering is invested in these tyres. They are not cheap class tyres!! We can deliver throughout the country. Mounting and balancing can be done by us by appointment. Please ask for the tyre prices, for it is changing - depending on shipment and the US Dollar.

4x4 Bakkie

RT03 Dynapro MT

This is one of the toughest tyres in the world. A lot of technology has been invested in the development of this tyre, Hankook is one the companies that probably invests the most in research to improve. This tyre has been tested severely, and is one of the best for Namibia. It is probably the 4th most expensive tyre in Namibia, but the best one.
  • Other Expensive tyres chip easily, so a quick wear
  • Tend to loose their whole tread, separate, causing big damage on the car
  • Have a to hard sidewall, causing cracks on the inner sidewall especially when driving with low pressures
  • Having to thin sidewalls where small thorns already puncture them
  • Are not available in high Ply Ratings
  • Large Knob MTs being very noisy
*Other Cheaper brands not performing as good, but some through their cheap price getting the price-performance ratio/value for money/cost per km quite good in spec.

Almost all 16" Tyres have a 10 ply rating, making them stronger to punctures-especially against intrusion of sharp stones. All 15" MT tyres are maximum in 6PR available mainly.
