Designed to perform in the most extreme off-road conditions, the Geolandar M/T G003 is the company’s mud terrain tyre for SUVs and pickup trucks. Available in sizes 15 – 20 inches, the G003 is capable of delivering steering stability and traction in the most demanding of terrains, including deep mud and rocky surfaces.

Enhanced manoeuvrability and quietness contribute to a comfortable driving experience.
