The Yokohama Geolandar A/T G015 is just one of the many types in the Geolandar family. Yokohama has designed and engineered an immense variety of truck and SUV tires to cope up with the ever changing road conditions. In this review of the Yokohama Geolandar A/T G015, I wanted to find out if the hybrid between a mud tire and highway-terrain tire is something that people should consider given the relatively high price.
Yes, the Yokohama Geolandar A/T G015 is an expensive tire. But when you think about it, the tire is designed to offer superior traction and grip on both wet and dry roads while still remaining capable enough to handle mild off-road terrain, even in severe winter and snow conditions. While the tire may look ultimately rugged upon first glance, Yokohama claims the tire is capable of a smooth and silent ride on paved roads.
I find that hard to believe since all the A/T tires I’ve tested in the past were chatty and noisy when driven on smooth concrete and tarmac. I mean, if you really want a silent and smooth ride, you can always choose a set of highway-terrain tires, but what if you like the best of both worlds? Is there such a tire than can meet both demands?
In order to find out, I got myself a 2010 Toyota Sequoia SR5 equipped with stock 18-inch wheels and Yokohama Geolandar A/T G015. I took it out for a test drive so I can come up with a comprehensive review. The owner was thinking about selling the SUV so he can have room in the garage for a newer pickup truck. He bought the Geolandar A/T G015 during the last quarter of 2017, so the tire has seen a lot of action since then.
