Yokohama Geolandar offers all-terrain, winter fitments

While Yokohama’s flagship Advan brand provides high performance for on-road SUVs, such as the AMG version of the Mercedes-Benz M-Class and Audi Q7, for which it is the original equipment fitment, its Geolandar range also has models to suit the off-road adventurer.

The Geolandar A/T-S is aimed at SUVs and 4x4s that spend similar amounts of time on and off-road. Developed to excel in both conditions with large tread blocks containing 3D sipes and four central grooves for traction in the worst of conditions, a stepped tread design helps to eliminate drumming and resonance when used on road. The A/T-S has also been approved by Mercedes-Benz for use on the G-Class 4×4.

Yokohama’s 4×4 and SUV range also has a winter option, the Geolandar I/T+. The tyre features two large grooves to displace snow while creating lateral grip to reduce sliding. The tread pattern also generates grip thanks to multiple blocks and edges. The I/T+ features the Three Peaks Mountain Snowflake symbol, indicating suitability for all winter conditions.
