Yokohama Geolandar M/T G003 | GO STRONG!



STRONGER 
OFF-ROAD PERFORMANCE | Proprietary GEO-SHIELD™ Technology


We recently were invited by Yokohama Tire to attend the launch of an exciting new tire in their off-road segment. We traveled to the tiny town of Gateway, CO for some experience with this tire under harsh conditions. Being a short distance away from Moab, UT and at 4,600 feet, Gateway features some unique topography and terrain.

A little history on the aggressive side of the Geolander line:

  • Super Digger was launched ~1998 and was an immediate hit with off-road racers. This tire is still produced today in one size for the race crowd.
  • Geolander M/T+ ~2007. Directional mud terrain tire


Introducing the new Geolander M/T G003!




As confirmed by independent testing, this tire features:

  • New wide and flat contact patch, resulting in 8%. longer tread life.
  • New rubber compound for improved cut and chip resistance.
  • 3-ply sidewall with high turn-up.
  • 2.3db quieter than the leading competitor's product.
  • 51' shorter stopping distance in wet conditions.

During the trip, we drove the tires in two different scenarios: A controlled closed course race environment and natural open fire roads and trails.

For the closed course event, we strapped into VORE Challenge series trucks and were turned loose on a race course in the middle of a valley. Terrain consisted of hard pack, gravel over hard pack, and soft silt. In addition, there were several sharp hills which provided limited air time. The tires hooked up very well, especially in the deep silt which existed in several of the turns. No issues with any of the tires during our session, but we did note some rubbing damage on one of the race vehicles due to contact with the fender.



For the next event, we loaded into Jeeps and headed out into open country via fire roads and established trails. These Jeeps had mild 2” lifts and were shod with 35x12.50-17 tires.




We experienced a variety of trail conditions:

  • hard pack
  • gravel over hard pack
  • soft silt
  • jagged rock gardens
  • light mud
  • snow
  • both wet/dry asphalt.

All-in-all, the tire performed extremely well in all conditions. No punctures, tread chunking, irregular wear, or other issues were observed on any of the vehicles during the testing (note: we were the last group to attend after a week of testing and were told the same sets of tires were used all week). In some of the rock gardens, we purposely tried to puncture a sidewall by hitting sharp, jagged rocks at a bad angle. No such luck, even though the tires were inflated to 30 PSI.



Yokohama is being very aggressive with it's re-entry into this segment. Sponsorship of NORRA, NitroCircus, several off-road competition teams, and Horsepower Adventures in Baja are complete.

20 initial launch sizes will begin shipping on July 1st. Stay tuned for more Yokohama product launches in this segment in the coming months!

or really any decent mud tire for a dually would be nice honestly, i'd love to see a 35x10 and i know those jeep guys would too, something that cuts rather then floats can be nice some times
