Tyre details: The Yokohama GEOLANDAR A/T-S G012 is designed for 4x4 vehicles. The unique aggressive tread pattern guarantees superb performance both in off-road settings and during everyday trips. The compound used to manufacture the tyre is notable for its outstanding resistance to wear and high temperatures, meaning that the tyre delivers maximum performance during dynamic high-speed driving and retains the necessary rigidity and anti-slip characteristics.
An internal steel belt, improved bead design and reinforced sidewall offer guaranteed resistance to mechanical damage. The strong blocks in the tread centre ensure outstanding steerability and superb grip, regardless of the weather or road conditions. They are arranged diagonally to ensure that driving stability is maintained even when driving on difficult, uneven surfaces. The dense network of grooves on the tread rapidly disperse water from under the tyre, increasing driving safety and reducing the risk of slipping and aquaplaning. The grooves also ensure that the tyre can use its self-cleaning capabilities to remove slush and stones. The designers of the tyre were keen to ensure slow and even wear, meaning that the full range of performance values can be achieved throughout its lifetime without any concerns about loss of specifications or grip. The reinforced shoulder pattern which overlaps onto the sidewall of the Yokohama GEOLANDAR A/T-S G012 help to improve performance on paved roads and when driving around the city.
