Yokohama Adds M/T G003 to Geolandar Line

June 1, 2017

Yokohama Tire Corp.’s new Geolandar M/T G003 features aggressive sidewall styling, Geo-Shield technology and a special triple-polymer compound.

The M/T G003 goes on sale in the U.S. July 1 and is initially available in 37 sizes ranging from 15- to 20-inch rim diameters.

The company says the new Geo-Shield construction incorporates multiple sidewall plies, steel belts, a full nylon cap and a high turn-up carcass to create a stronger tire that provides strength and protection, even in the harshest off-road conditions.

The longer-lasting tread is the result of a new, high-density compound and a wider, flatter profile that creates exceptional wear performance. Outstanding traction comes from a triple-polymer tread compound combined with optimized sipes and an ideal block to void ratio, which provide outstanding grip and significantly shorter stopping distances on wet roads.    

A quieter ride on the road is due to the advanced variable pitch tread on the M/T, which assures a quiet, on-highway ride while maintaining off-road performance.
