Yokohama Geolandar A/T-S
Initial Review: 2,500 miles on tires
January 25, 2014

Wanted to replace replace the OEM Goodyear LS2s as I didn't trust them for dirt, snow and ice. I was hesitant to replace them after just 8k miles, but I knew this car do do better. Our Outlander is mainly a city car but we do occasional Ski and Camping trips and really wanted to get the most of the S-AWC of the Outlander. I was concerned about noise, ride comfort and mpg so I held on to the LS2s in case the Yokos were not suitable for city life. LS2s are now for sale. The Geolanders thrived in off road the ice and snow, really letting the Outlander shine. On freeways and city streets they are as 9/10ths as quiet as the Goodyears, which is saying a lot, and there's better road feel, ride quality and handling in the corners. The Goodyears were just too soft. The stiffer sidewall on the Geolander really compliments the Outlander on and off road, and the traction off road was tremendous for how civil they are on the streets. MPG has not suffered either. This should be the 2nd set of tires for all Outlander owners, I totally recommend!
