Goodyear Silent Armor or Hankook Dynapro?

I need new tires on my TV and narrowed it down to 2 choices and am looking at getting some advise from you folks. I need AT tires due to my job and go offroad 10-20% of the time. Goodyear Silent Armor or Hankook Dynapro AT-M RF10. I like Goodyear for they are American made but have concerns on the sidewall strength and I don't know why. Hankook is highly recommended by my Chevy dealer but costs $400 more. I guess that the Goodyear may last me 40,000 miles costing me $0.023/mile and the Hankook may last me 50,000 costing me $0.0265/mile.

I have not run them but came very close to buying them at one time many people really liked them., had great reviews at the time Then couldn't get the size I wanted. Ended up with the goodyear adventure with kevlar and it worked very well. got 58k out of the set on my 01 2500. Just bought a set for my 17 3500 since the firestones were toast at 33k. Hopefully I get the 50k plus out them as well.

Around here the Silent Armor is getting hard to find and has been replaced mostly by the "all terrain adventure w/ kevlar". I'm a big fam of both of these for good on-raod manners, decent in snow and mild mud/gravel.

The Hankook tires are great tires, on my 2003 2500hd excsb that I towed about 50% of the time I got just shy of 60,000 out of the tires. The only gripe I have with them is that if you are not diligent on rotating the tires they will start to cup on the steer axle. On a related note I have Cooper Discoverer AT/3 on my 2006 2500hd ccsb and have been really impressed with the wear and performance. I have around 40,000 on these and still have around 25% tread depth left.

The choice is simple, but I think you've left other viable options out. Support USA produced goods to the extent you can, and the tire industry is as important as any other.

I really liked my Hankook MT's and have friends who speak highly about their AT's as well.

Have always run Michlin. Went to Hankook, it's like running on balloons. Handling is really bad. Due to cost will have to run them for a couple of years then it is back to Michlins.

I have hankook Dynapro on my truck, I have been very pleased and surprised by their towing performance and stability. They were installed by previous owner, and I was (my family too) always a Michelin or Cooper fan, i will definitely add and consider these tires to the list of tires I really like, JMO

OP since you mentioned liking Goodyear as they are American made, Cooper are also American made.

I have Cooper Discoverer AT3s in load range E and they have been great. Theyíre quiet and handle great whether Iím towing or not.
