Yokohama is presenting the sweepstakes in conjunction with its marketing partner Nitro Circus Live Pty. Ltd., a global action sports and entertainment company that produces the Nitro World Games. Yokohama is also the exclusive tire of the Nitro Circus Live Tour in the United States through 2019.

The truck made its debut at the Nitro Circus show in San Diego and will be on display at all 20 Nitro Circus Live events across the country through the end of September. A free set of Geolandar M/T G003 tires will be given away at each Nitro Circus Live event.

“The grand prize-winning Ram 2500 Power Wagon is a real beauty,” says Fardad Niknam, Yokohama Tire director of LTR segment development. “We partnered with AEV to load the truck with all sorts of cool modifications, including a three-inch dual sport SC lifted suspension, a premium front off-road bumper, 17x8.5 Katla onyx black wheels, and differential covers for the front and rear. The custom livery wrap was designed by Jon Sibal and, of course, it runs on 37x12.50 R17 Yokohama GEOLANDAR M/T G003 tires. It will draw a lot of attention from fans at the Nitro Circus events.”

Niknam says the new M/T tire was created for hardcore off-roaders, outdoor enthusiasts and pickup truck/SUV owners, and is initially available in 37 sizes, ranging from 15- to 20-inch rim diameters. New features on the M/T, which goes on sale in the U.S. July 1, include aggressive sidewall styling, Geo-Shield technology and a special triple-polymer compound.

Yokohama is the exclusive tire of the Nitro Circus Live Tour in the United States and an official sponsor of the Nitro World Games, June 24 at Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City, Utah.
