I purchased these tires when upgrading my 2003 Chevrolet Trailblazer to the 20" rims. I have used Yokohama in the past and am consistently happy with the price/performance factor.

These tires are wearing wonderfully, I do rotate them every 10,000 though. They are quiet, and not harsh riding, the sidewall has some give.

It's an SUV- so as you could expect, I don't corner like a corvette. But on more than one occasion, the grip has surprised me, and the tires don't protest- no squealing through corners.

I rated these low on Hydroplaning and Deep Snow. I believe the cross section has more to do with that than the tire, but on a 5000# truck, I shouldn't have hydroplaning problems, at reasonable speeds. Also I HAVE to use 4WD now in any snow over 3"- once again, I'll attribute this to the width of the tire (mostly).

Overall I'm happy, but when the snow flies, I find myself wishing for some snow tires.....

I bought these tires based on reviews from this site. I have been very happy with the 'upgrades' over the OEM tire that I was looking for, namely I feel they offer a smoother and quieter ride than the OEM tire. I take my truck (4x4) into the mountains in the winter and I wanted a tire with good snow traction as well. The tread pattern seems to work well in snowy conditions, and I don't remember having much problem with traction through powder snow in 4x4, or plowed roads in 2x4 and I always feel confident driving in the snow with them. I drive in Southern CA so not much rain, but when I have had occasion to drive in the rain I have had no traction problems. Similarly, when pulling my boat out of the lake at a steep launch I don't have a problem there either. (Approx. 4000 lb weight wet.) I was expecting a better tread life on the tire, the outside edges have worn quicker than I expected. However, I am not certain that is the tire's fault or just the way the tundra is built. I have had my alignment checked several times, and I speculate that in order to have a tight turning radius Toyota set a greater camber on the wheels which may fry the tires on the outside edge. If I find my wear has something to do with the truck rather than the tire, I would strongly consider these tires again for their ride, sound and traction for ordinary truck driving. (I do not drive off road so I have no input related to dirt traction.)

General Tire has always been a brand I wouldn't even consider. My notion of General was they're cheap-black-and round, they hold air and will probably dry rot off the rims long before the tread wears out.



So far so good, the traction is very good in the dry and excellent in the wet which is probably my biggest concern here in Florida with our summer downpours. The handling is good but I can't be critical about it as the vehicle is an old turd work truck. One thing I did notice is how quiet they are.

So, my opinion of General tires has changed and hopefully they'll last as long and deliver great service as the Yokohama's they replaced. Time will tell.

I bought these tires after having the stock Goodyears that were dangerous in the rain and these tires have been a great investment!! There very solid tires and if the rear end of my truck starts to slip they pick up traction and regain control very quickly. These seem to be very good tires for my 2wd truck because the rear end of the truck is so light you need a solid performing tire that will keep you on the road in all sorts of conditions. I have put these tires to the test and they seem to perform better in the rain then on dry roads, the contact path these tires make keep you on the road!! They are also very quiet and are wearing nice and even great I love these tires and would buy them again!!!! Best tire I have had yet!!!!

Compared to the previous Kelly Safari's, these were super. Took these on a long mileage trip and could not believe how quite and smooth of a ride with my 150 Ford truck. Hard rains, handled great. Was waffling back and forth on another brand but when my tire dealer said thats what he put on his truck, that did it. I suppose time will tell but with only 6000 miles on them it is early but they look great. The price of tires are crazy and in comparison these were $158 each/on the truck. I normally get over the tires treadwear because of always checking inflation and rotating. If you are looking for a quite tire and a smooth riding tire, this is it in my opinion. In fact, it was so smooth and quite we felt like the truck was gliding down the road.

I am big fan of these tires and of TireRack. The info provided on the website is invaluable - really helped me choose not only the correct tire (specs and ratings) but also the best tire for me. I had previously bought a set of 235/70R15 Yokohamas ATs for my 98 std cab 2wd Ranger (love those too!), and now these 245 SAT Khumos are doing great on my 99 ext cab 4wd Ranger. I wanted to get the correct size and duty rating tire for each of these trucks because I specifically did not want a heavy, over-sized, and unresponsive tire that would hve a negative impact on mileage. Being able to research specs and compare other user's experience, at my convenience, was invaluable to me.

So far both my Khumo and Yokohama sets are doing stellar. No problems what-so-ever. I don't do any off-road muddin', though, but I think my son did once and he came back in one piece. I would not hesitate to take these tires anywhere they are intended (hence, All-Terrain). They are a quality, competent, very respectable tire. And I am huge fan of Michelin tires. I run them on my 2000 Dodge Caravan, and Michelins LTXs are what I replaced on my trucks.

After speaking with my Customer Service Rep Rudy, he told me the Khumos are probably 75%-80% of what Michelin a tire is. I too was a little concerned with how Khumo tires would hold-up and perform. But I decided I would take 75%-80% of Michelin for probably 60% of the cost of Michelin. I haven't regretted it for a moment. Besides, as far as I'm concerned, these Khumos and Yokohamas seem closer to 90% of Michelins. Don't get me wrong, I love the Michelin Harmony tires I have on my Caravan - best tire I've ever driven on - in rain or on curvy mountain highways along side semi-trucks.

I saved a good bit of dough with these tires, and I couldn't be happier with their performce.

Thanks TireRack.

Man, it's been a good run. Thanks Yokohama for making a good tire. From the noise to the sliding under hard braking, the Continentals the truck came with made driving a chore; I detested having to go on long trips and actually feared for my life when it rained with the Contitracs. After I got my set of Yokohama G051's, I will never go back. The Yoko's have lasted me for FIVE years and 78,000 miles. I have worn them down to the exposed CORDS (waaaay past the wear bars) and they still drive better, and with no noise, than the Continentals. I've dodged potholes and had 2 accidents on this same set; in one accident, the Hero unit actually PUSHED the Expedition off the freeway - tires squealing and all. They've pulled the 2.5 ton behemoth out of beach sand, and they have jumped more than their share of curbs (my wife helped on this tremendously). As long as you keep them rotated, they stay up to par. The wet traction is great, but what gets me is being able to take curves at up to 50-60 mph without them breaking loose or squealing (I did say I drive 'spirited'). And the really good part? I've only had to patch one of these tires once. I am really hoping my next set gets another five years, but I don't think the truck will hold together that long!

I'm some what disappointed in this tire. Great in just about all the categories except for highway. As soon as I had these tires put on I get this strange rumble feel in the truck at 65mph and higher. It's not your regular shimming that you would get if the tire was out of balance. Didn't have this issue with my previous set of tire. ( Yokohama ) Had them balanced twice where I purchased them and also balanced them at Toyota on two different occasions. No Luck. Thought if I broke them in a few miles it would get better. No luck there either. I use to love driving my truck on the highway but no more. My other choice would have been the Michelin Energy Saver A/S. Should gone with those. My wife needed tires on her RAV4 so I went with the Michelins's. About the same in all the categories like the Goodyears minus the snow & ice ( to warm, just got them put on 2 weeks ago ) and what a difference on the highway. Such a smooth ride. I miss that on my truck. I question myself, maybe I have an issue on my front end? So I swopped all 4 wheels from my wife's truck and put them on my truck and my wheels on hers to see if it was truly the tires giving me this grief. I took my truck for run on the highway. Low and behold the rumble sensation was gone. Drove my wife's truck the following day on the highway and yes I felt the rumble sensation in her truck. So I called Goodyear and they said they could not give me a pro rated refund but they would give me a new set of tires. I thought maybe I had a bad batch. So I got them put on and went on the Highway and the same results. The ruble feel. I guess I'm stuck these tires. In all my years of buying new tires, I never had such a strange issue before. I was so looking forward to these tires because of the great reviews. I'll see if I can stay with them for a short time or as much as I can tolerate this sub-par ride on the highway before I get a set of the Michelins. Goodyear tires, NEVER AGAIN.

Yokohama has been a favorite of mine since 1992 and I've evolved to using it on all my cars. This car, however, calls for Ultra High Performance tires and I'm seeing two things - tire wear and noise. I get about 2 years on these tires and from 30-38k miles. I hope for 60k due to cost. The other problem is noise. The tires are dead quiet for the first year 15k miles, then I get a low "ruh ruh" sound as I drive under 40. I also get a lot of tire movement in the ruts left by heavy trucks in the asphalt, that I don't have when the tires are new. My experience for this car has spanned now 3 sets of tires, all Yokohama. I also use these and the AVID Envigor on my other cars, a Lexus and a Pacifica. I get much better performance there. St. Louis rarely see's snow like I had in my native Michigan. I'm great at snow/ice driving, but this car with these tires, I have to really baby it if I don't want to end in a ditch. So all said, if you have an Std All-Season need, these are great tires. If you have an Ultra High Performance All-Season need, they were not completely satisfactory. I've just replaced with Kumho to see if these are any better. They certainly receive high marks.

I have put these tires through the worst conditions a driver could possibly drive in, and they keep on trucking. I drove my Yukon through ice and white out conditions up Bluit pass in WA towing 3000 # trailer without 4 wheel drive and didn't have any problems.
I have 100's of dirt road and wash board miles on these tires and haven't haven't had any loss of traction.
I plowed through 2 feet of snow up mountain roads and these tires stick like cat claws. I have 30,000 miles on these tires and they have barely have any signs of ware. I will be switching all my vehicles over to Yokohama tires if the rest of the models perform as well as these.
My only complaint with these tires is they don't handle as well in the corners as the stock tires, but I also went one size taller than stock and its a SUV not a Porsche.

I bought these tires to replace the POS Goodyear Wrangler RT/S tires that came standard on my 2011 Ford Ranger XLT 4x4 Off Road Edition.

I decided to discontinue using the Goodyear tires after a long drive home from New York to Maryland during a heavy rainstorm. I couldn't drive more than 30-40 miles per hour in 4 wheel drive without hydroplaning all over the place.

The next week, after reading many reviews of tires in this category I decided to switch to the Yokohama Geolandar AT/S tire. I am glad I spent the money and made the switch. It completely altered the ride of the truck. I can leave the truck in 2WD in the worst rain storms and even in snowy conditions without any issues.

I have had these tires on or 07 T&C minivan for almost 9 months and with out last trip we are now at 25K miles. They still look like new. Minivan owners should be aware that vans are just as heavy as a SUV's. The manufacture sells them with passenger tires, my stock tires needed to be replaced at just under 30k. Further more when the stock tires started to wear out were loud and handing was terrible. These tire are quiet I would venture to say the quietest tires I have ever used. They grip like no tomorrow. One thing I will point out is the handling was sloppy at first when cornering. I checked the tire pressure and the store that installed the tires had set them to the stock pressure listed on the door sticker. Since the van is front heavy I set the front tire pressure to 44psi and the rears to 42psi. That cleaned up the handling perfectly it is not loud the ride is smooth. Snow and Ice performance is excellent. I live in Colorado and spend a good deal of time driving in the mountains I did not pull out the chains one time this winter! The grip in these tires is amazing wet weather handling is just as good. I have read were some complain about the squishy handling. Please keep in mind if you are using tires are a different brand from stock use the PSI rating on the tire not the door of the car, your tire will last longer,your car,truck or van/minivan will handle better and you will get better gas mileage. I cannot say enough this is the perfect tire for a minivan. We do weekend in the mountains on some pretty rough roads and my only limiting factor now is ground clearance. My mother in law is now using these tire on her Jeep and is happy with them as well. I only wish they would make them in a size to fit my car. remember proper tire pressure is key to these tire and depending on the weight of your vehicle you may need to adjust accordingly. Yokohama if you are listening my tire size is 225/50/17R :)

 

Best All-Terrain Tires for the Money

Friday, June 1, 2012 by Alex Mouroulis

On-/Off-Road All-Terrain tires combine rugged off-road looks with reasonable on-road performance. These tires tend to make a little more tread noise than their highway or street tire counterparts. On top of the aggressive look, all-terrain tires also extend handling in off-pavement conditions.

The Firestone Destination A/T is known for its wet traction and lack of road noise. Featuring UNI-T technology, this tire blends tire comfort, performance and wear to provide the drivers of sport utility vehicles, pickup trucks and vans with an excellent ride.

General Grabber AT 2 tires are highly regarded for their aggressive looks, off-road capability and snow traction. The Grabber AT 2 features a chip-and tear-resistant tread compound molded into an aggressive, symmetric tread design featuring five rows of independent tread blocks to blend on-road handling with off-road traction.

The Yokohama Geolandar A/T-S is regarded as the value leader in many sizes with a good combination of aggressive looks and bearable road manners. A set of Yokohamas is a great upgrade to your pickup or SUV for a more rugged look. I have run the A/T-S on my vehicle before and found it very effective on a wet boat ramp, as well as very comfortable with unimproved bank launches.

Let me start by saying I have alway been happy with Yokahama Tires in the past. I believe these tires are just not strong enough for a diesel excursion. The problem is in corners. It feels way to soft. You can feel the truck squashing the side walls both into and out of the turn. It took some getting used too. This continues even at the max tire presure.

These were great overall. My truck only has 15 inch wheels so the profile is a bit tall, despite this the steering on curvy highways felt very sharp and controlled. Off road, they never let me down, even in deep mud or on steep hills. In snow they did well, and I never felt hydroplaning until the tread got pretty low. My only complaint about ride comfort is that in very cold weather I felt a bit of vibration, though this could also be the bushings in the suspension. Aside from that they are pretty smooth as far as off road tires go. I've put about 50,000 miles on them so far and still have some to go, probably going with these again.

Years ago I had a work truck, Chevy Silverado 2wd that I used in residential construction. I was SO impressed with this tire overall that when my '09 Dodge Ram 4x4 hit 40,000 miles the factory GY Wrangler HP's were toast. It is shamefull that a loaded 4x4 truck came with a glorified passenger tire, but it did and I never liked them. Sure the ride on dry paved road was smooth/quiet but thats it. Every other area of performance was awful. Even after siping it was only marginaly better in the rain. The reason I'm giving a history lesson is b/c if you have a Ram with the 20" rims sooner or later you will be reading reviews and looking for a real truck tire. This tire is it, stop looking and buy these! I'm still in the construction business and this truck is 50-50 work/personal use. It handles all aspects of paved road and is still very quiet rolling, smooth ride etc. At job sites no problem, personal use is frequent long road trips...once again VERY quiet and no MPG loss. I like the squared up shoulder blocks which help traction, add strength and just plain look good. We camp and I have no worries taking this thing off the road and on graded paths at preserves/state parks. With the HP's I was always worried about every small branch/foilage in our path. Although we don't do any "off-roading" you wont have problems with small rocks etc. I am less worried about a puncture now. There are a lot of tires on the market, if you want a solid tire firmly between a passenger/highway only tire and a mongo-mudder this is it. No regrets!
