The Yokohama Geolandar G012 tyres are rugged 4x4 tyres for your 4WD vehicles and SUVs, offering reliable performance both on road and off road. If your regular driving involves a fair amount of tough terrain in addition to everyday asphalt, these are amongst the best tyre options for you. Yokohama Tyres of course has other tyres for SUV applications, the most popular being the Yokohama AC02 C-Drive2 tyres for high performance luxury SUVs. These tyres, however, are 100% on road tyres with zero off road capabilities.
Filled with a range of innovative tyre technologies, the Yokohama Geolanadar G012 tyres deliver a high and uncompromising level of performance, irrespective of the terrain.
Superior Handling Characteristics: The Yokohama Geolandar G012 tyres have a distinctive tread pattern with innovatively designed tread blocks that maximise the handling characteristics. Pyramid like zig-zag sipes are cut into the tyre tread area, which enhance the block’s rigidity. So deformation of the tread block due to the stress of driving is minimised, enhancing the braking and handling characteristics on all surfaces. Also because of reduced block deformation, the tread wear is more uniform, increasing the tyre life.
Exceptional On and Off Road Performance: The Yokohama Geolandar G012 tyres feature multi-step grooves in between the tread blocks. As a result, the ‘squishy’ effect experienced on highways with other similar tyres is eliminated. These grooves are also responsible for superior off road performance because they effectively clear away mud and dirt from the tread increasing traction and grip and enabling superior performance. You thus experience superior control on road and off road.
Increased Tyre Life: The tread block arrangement is created in such a manner as to minimise uneven tread wear. Powerful side block protectors are present on the sidewalls of the Yokohama Geolandar G012 tyres. Thus the tyre tread is protected from cuts and abrasions likely to occur on tough terrain. Besides, the tyre block protectors also increase traction levels in rugged terrains, further increasing performance and safety off road.
Reduced Tyre Noise: The tread blocks in the Yokohama Geolandar G012 tyres exhibit a 5 Pitch block variation pattern along the entire tyre circumference. This greatly minimises tyre noise, increasing the driving comfort for both drivers and passengers. This arrangement of tread blocks also contributes to reducing uneven tread wear, further increasing the life of the tyres.
