May 28, 2019 How To Choose Yokohama Geolandar Tyres

When selecting tyres for your 4WD or SUV, it’s important that you know the ins and outs of your options. The Geolandar family of tyres offer a premium alternative and we currently have five different patterns.


In this blog, we detail everything you need to know to help you choose the right tyres for you.


Geolandar SUV HT G055


If you’re looking for an everyday SUV tyre, you’ve come to the right place in looking at the Geolandar SUV HT G055. Since SUVs and smaller 4WD cars use more fuel than other cars their size, it’s important that you have fuel-efficient tyres to combat this. Not only is this good for your wallet, but it’s also great for the environment as well!


Because of this, this type of tyre has a reputation as an “eco tyre”. However, this doesn’t compromise on quality in the slightest - the grip still comes courtesy of Yokohama's patented Silica rubber compound technology, which ensures they’re easy-to-control with great all-season traction. This means they’re long-lasting, too, with long mileage and a high treadwear rating. They can even be used in mud and snow (not that many of us see a lot of that here).


When you buy two or more of these tyres at a participating, official dealer, you will be covered under Yokohama's free Road Hazard Protection.


Geolandar H/T G056

 

Geolandar HT G056


This long-lasting tyre is perfect for highway terrain, especially if you’re driving a 4WD or an SUV. While these tyres do allow for some limited off-road driving, they offer a quiet and comfortable drive in everyday situations.


These tyres stand out compared to their predecessor, the Geolandar H/T-S G051, as they’re more fuel-efficient and improve tread life by a staggering 21%. These tyres are a dream to drive even in wet weather. Their multi-combination tyre compound isn’t all; it’s a quiet tyre, making it perfect for driving around residential neighbourhoods as well.


Even better, Geolandar H/T G056 tyres are covered under Yokohama's free Road Hazard Protection, when purchasing more than two at a time from authorised dealers.

 

Geolandar X-CV G057

 

Our latest tyres are something to get excited about! Labelled as “exceptional”, you’ll soon see why we love Geolandar X-CV G057 so much. This high-performance tyre is made for premium crossover SUVs and it shows; you’ll never struggle to push it to its limits. All of this doesn’t mean you’re sacrificing on comfort either, because there’s plenty of that to go around as well.


The asymmetrical tread pattern is functional, allowing for much better grip on the roads, meaning you can handle your vehicle like a pro. In fact, there’s a treadwear rating of 520. If you want a tyre that’ll keep you on the road for longer, these are ideal, thanks to long-lasting mileage performance.


And if you love to drive 24/7, 365? No worries, whether rain or shine, it can be driven in all seasons, year-round.


Finally, it’s included in Yokohama’s Road Hazard Protection program too.


Geolandar A/T G015

 

G015 Tyres In Action

 

What do you want from a tyre? It’s likely that you have a lot of boxes to check, and this one should tick them all! It’s no wonder, then, that the Geolandar A/T G015 gets a reputation as “limitless”.


This tyre is great for everything, seriously. SUVs? Check. 4WDs? Check. Utes? Check. It’s good-to-go on all terrains and is a dream when it comes to everything from durability and tread life through to traction and handling. For those of us who value comfort and keeping the neighbours happy as well, it’s a beauty to drive and doesn’t make a lot of noise.


Featuring a new, exclusive compound, this tyre doesn’t bat an eye at temperature changes and extreme weathers and handles wear like a pro. If you’re all for driving off-road, its aggressive shoulder design sees to it that you’ll be protected. It even has optimised lug grooves to improve traction in these scenarios, and amazing self-cleaning ability as well (seriously).


You can keep driving on these tyres pretty much forever (well, almost). Geolandar AT G015 tyres are covered under Yokohama's free Road Hazard Protection, as detailed above.


Geolandar M/T G003


Driving to extremes or even to get down and dirty? Trust us, you want the Geolandar M/T G003. This leisure tyre is perfect for relentless drivers, which is great because the tyre is relentless as well.


This tyre loves mud, dirt and wild terrains, so it’s great for those who love their off-road adventures. Whether you want to tackle rocky trails head-on or explore beautiful locations across Australia, this is the one for you. Whatever the weather, you’ve got this!


Sure, the tyre is a little intimidating, but for good reason. Driving with these allows you to feel confident that you can venture into all the uncharted territory you’d like without any reason to worry. Long tread life, top performance and a mud and stone ejector built into the design to keep the grooves clear are all things you have to look forward to.


Its high-density compound of triple polymer means that you can get as aggressive on the road as you like. Plus, you get the ultimate protection from GEO-SHIELD™ technology, optimised lug grooves for the very best grip and the wide profile means stress is easily distributed.
