Are you a Jeep owner looking for a new set of rubber that can take serious battering? How would you like to have a set of tires that you can drive on almost everything from brutal logging roads to sharp rocks with no problem whatsoever?
You actually do not have to be a Jeep owner to love these, as they will fit on a wide range of 4*4 vehicles. The Yokohama Geolandar All Terrain tires provide excellent traction in all conditions on and off the road.
What is the Yokohama GEOLANDAR A/T-S?
The Geolandar A/T-S is Yokohama’s all terrain tire developed for quality on and off road capabilities. It is very popular with truck and SUV owners because of the dependability of its performance when it comes to off-road conditions. The aggressive design of this tire stands tall against all kind of punishments that the ruts can throw; in addition, they keep you safer and take you further.
- Powerful sidewall protectors to shield the wheel from external damages and provide external grip.
- Multi-step tread block design that allows the tire to perform well on the road.
- Two steel belts with spirally wrapped nylon reinforcement inside the tire to increase strength and durability.
Dry surface traction and handling are increased through the use of center blocks that are staggered around the tread, as well as rounded edge intermediate blocks and larger shoulder blocks that give the tire added stability at higher speeds and a quieter ride.
When it comes to rain or slush, the four circumferential grooves and dual interlocking sipes take away water from the footprint giving the tread better grip. This also increases wet braking and acceleration.
The multi stepped grooves on the Geolandar AT/S make driving off-road on loose gravel, dirt, mud and rocks an easy feat. The sidewall protectors on this tire’s shoulders also provide extra grip when driving on loose surfaces and over logs. In addition to grip, the sidewall protectors also help with stability and give you confidence while driving over rugged ground as they prevent cuts and bruises to the tire from sharp objects.
These are tires that you can drive through snow without experiencing any of the normal resistance that other tires present. They do not have quite the aggressive pattern sported by other models but that might be a good thing as they are surprisingly quiet on ice and on dry roads. The handling is quite precise on slush and there is no loss of grip; it feels like a normal ride on a wet road.
The Bottom Line
The Geolandar is an extremely good tire that does just about everything you would want from an all terrain tire. It exhibits excellent performance on the highway while handling mud and loose dirt off-road with ease. you get solid dry surface handling and it grips well on wet surface giving you an all round comfortable ride. Further, this tire delivers top ranking performance and value for your money. The Geolandar is definitely a good choice!
