Yokohama Geolandar Crossover Tires vs Light Truck SUV Tires

Yokohama has been known for their high performance tires amongst enthusiasts in the industry for decades. Tires like the popular S.Drive and its predecessor, the AVS Intermediate, have a special place in the memories of many high performance drivers.  

Yokohama offers much more than performance tires. Whether you're looking at touring tires for the family sedan like the AVID Ascend, winter tires like the iceGUARD iG20 or sportier all-season tires like the ADVAN Sport A/S, Yokohama has a full line of tires to cover the needs of nearly any driver.

Yokohama has a history of participation in Baja off-road racing and used much of that experience in developing the Geolandar A/T-S. For drivers who require a more aggressive tread pattern for enhanced traction on unpaved roads and other light off-road conditions, the Geolandar A/T-S is a great option. 

If your truck or SUV spends the vast majority of its time on paved roads, consider the Geolandar H/T G056. With a 70,000-mile treadwear warranty, quiet ride and all-season capability, it is a solid choice for drivers who aren't driving off-road.  

Drivers of smaller SUVs and sporty crossovers may want to consider the new Geolandar G055. This tire is a premium all-season touring option with a smooth and quiet ride, responsive handling and excellent grip. The G055 is available in higher speed ratings that are recommended for many newer crossover vehicles.
