Yokohama expands Geolandar line

Posted on August 25, 2014

The next generation tire from Yokohama Tire Corp.’s Geolandar H/T G056 line goes on sale Sept. 1, 2014, in 38 sizes in 15- to 20-inch rim diameters in P-metric and LT-metric offerings for light trucks and SUVs.

The Geolandar H/T G056 features a 70,000-mile limited tread wear warranty on P-metric sizes and 50,000 miles on LT-metric sizes.

Yokohama says other highlights of the new tire include:

* triple 3D sipes that help stabilize tread blocks to minimize uneven wear and provide biting edges for enhanced traction throughout the life of the tire; and  

* multi-angle grooves and zigzag circumferential grooves that work in tandem to provide improved handling in wet and wintry conditions;

* an optimized contact patch that contributes to better mileage by equalizing pressure distribution where the tread contacts the road for long, even wear; and.

* adaptive shoulder blocks form a continuous outer rib that reduces noise throughout the life of the tire.

“Thanks to its completely new design, which includes Yokohama’s own orange oil compound technology, the Geolandar H/T G056 is made to stay on the road thousands of miles longer and provide exceptional all-weather handling,” says Andrew Briggs, Yokohama director, marketing and product planning.

“It outlasts conventional highway terrain tires without sacrificing its all-season capabilities.”
