Not fit for off road
These were recommended by Bob Jane for my trip to the Gibb River Road in the Kimberleys. Despite lowering tyre pressures on gravel surfaces I got three punctures, I then went up to Cape York and got two punctures, again on gravel surfaces. They are good tyres on the sealed roads and would be good in sand however they are too soft for gravel surfaces. Each punctures was through the tread and at 70yo I'm not driving like a mad 4wd driver. Very disappointed however I have gained a higher level of fitness by changing wheels on hot dusty roads.
About to replace the second set of these tyres 225/60/17's on a diesel forester. The OE tyres lasted about 20'000 k's before a stone went through a sidewall and when the wear was becoming obvious. 200,000 k's later including an unplanned trip to The Tip (only one puncture due to a rogue masonry drill bit) and various tough gravel, snow and sand tracks along with a variety of tarmac conditions I'll buy them again. The fact that they've been filled with nitrogen probably helps the wear but they have been good in all these conditions. They are positive on gravel, wet bitumen and snow and went well in soft sand tracks when deflated to about 20psi. The car is always a pleasure to drive and it's a pity these tyres weren't original equipment or I'd still have another 20'000 k's to run before the next purchase....Awesome tyre for this work!!!
I have run 50,000 km and they are only half worn. I love the dry grip and the off road traction is amazing. The tyres are not as quiet as the newer GO15, but not terribly more so.
I have never felt as safe as i do when im using these tyres. They are an excellent tyre that copes in ALL conditions. This tyre feels nice and smooth when driving on or off road. They also connect well with gravel roads. The durability is amazing. All terrain tyres are as says ALL TERRAIN Perfectly! When taken care of, looked after by rotating every 10000km wheel alignments this tyre has a very good life span.
Id definitely buy this tyre again.
Great Tyre Great Price but read the whole review.
I bought these tyres (265/70R16) just on 12 months ago and am very happy with the performance they have given me. I have done almost 25000klms with very little signs of wear. I replaced them prior to a 9000klm trip towing a 18' caravan from Qld to the length of the Murray River through NSW to VIC to SA and back with no issues as they performed very well under all conditions, including dry, wet, gravel, corrugations and highway speeds of 95kl/hr. Recently finished a 7500klm Central Qld venture towing the caravan with the same tyres with the same result as the Murray. The rest of the time and mileage was around regional areas. I would definitely buy another set of these depending how much more mileage I get out of these tyres. Only time will tell. So far so good.
Well what can I say. It is now over 2 years since I purchased these tyres and I have only done 30000 klm and they are the worst tyres that I have ever owned. They are well past the half way mark and the most noisiest tyres I have ever owned. They are that noisy I am seriously considering throwing them out and getting my old brand back where I got over 100,000 klm from them and there was still some legal tread left. The only reason I got the new ones was I would be towing a caravan the 9000 klm I mentioned at the start and it was the safest thing to do. I have constantly maintained these Yokohama's and serviced these tyres through my tyre provider and was informed that these tyres were wearing at an incredible rate and suggested I consider a different tyre next time. I paid top dollar for these tyres and they were great for 25000 klm and that is where it stopped. As far as I am concerned they are RUBBISH and I will NEVER purchase another Yokohama tyre ever again.
I don't think Yokohama can ever convince me to buy one of their tyres ever again. Sorry Yokohama but you have lost me.
We live very rural and have 14km of gravel road so it's harsh environment for tyres. We have had Wranglers, Bighorns and BF Goodrich KO2's all those tyres out shone these Yokohamas. 35,000 is all we have got out of these and they are stuffed and I mean completely buggered. I'm now fixing my 7th puncher this week. They are so bad that bone from road kill is going straight through the tyre and I've never had this problem before. They were really good in the wet when we first got them but now they are dangerous and I'm too scared to pull up quick.
If you own a real 4wd and drive in real conditions don't buy these tyres in fact run away as fast as you can. If you live in the city and never see gravel roads they might suit you better but they are not made for real conditions that 4wds should be driving in. An expensive mistake I've made here back to the KO2's or Bighorns for this 4wd.
So far so good! Great on sand and rocky tracks
Currently driving a Subaru Forester SJ 2.5 L CVT
I had the Stock tyres and I've been getting unlucky with my tyres either punctured or had a gash through the sidewall when off roading. This happened 3 times to the stock tyres.
I was so fed up that I went to an all-terrain tyres.Yokohama geolanders G015 was recommended but could only fit G012 with 225/60/17
I highly recommend
Regret this purchase
Balancing issues with this tyre. One tyre was replaced after two weeks as it was found to be faulty. Considering the cost of these tyres it has been the worst choice. Many hours & $$ spent with suspension and tyre experts to diagnose the conclusion that the tyres are definitely the problem. E mailed Yokohama - do not want to know about it.
I did a fair bit of homework and put a set of these on 200 series landcriuser and they have lasted 60,000 km's. That included an 8,000 k dirt trip through the Kimberley including Gibb River Road with a serious load, a couple of trips across Dirk Hartog etc. Havn't touched the spare. Great grip and wear to the end. Most underrated tyre I have used, going back for another set.
Good and value for money
A good tyre branch made in Japan. The tyres are durable and its been so far so good. No issue on the performance. Compared with other brand we have used this brand is value for money. We even received a voucher as we have referred to another friend to purchase it from the same place.
Great on wet road, weak sidewalls
Great tyre for everyday and great in the wet, however i kissed a kerb yesterday and blew the tyre (was running 40psi) but they are very thin. They felt good crossing the goulburn river with plenty of grip, however on a steepish moist washout they did slip fairly bad compared to my old BF goodrich which would retain their composure after a little slip. I have now purchased some kuhmo M/T for off roading but happy to keep these for everyday and occasional offroading in dry conditions ( just a little scared now of sidewall punctures)
Noisy as it gets older.
After 30,000ks wearing well but quite noisy now. Not sure what it is has been rotated twice. Had LT version before and got 90ks from it.The P rated versions after a few Ks sound like MTs. Very good on and OK off-road for an AT only complaint is the latent noise issue.
Have these on my car since new. Have done 40000 km on them so far and still have a lot of tread left. Haven't had any problems in extremely wet conditions. Cornering is also fine and hold traction well. The tyres are very quite on the freeway and can not be heard.
Great all round tyre
Fantastic tyre. excellent on road and highway. good grip in wet.
Not as good off road as a specialist off road tyre but holds it own. More than makes up for its on road performance.
Unless you want a specialized off road tyre, with poor on road performance, I would absolutely recomend this tyre. Did very well on a trip to Central Australia.
Good Tyre on or off road for the Land cruiser
The Tyre is exceed my expectation on road and off road. The Tyre is very quiet when you travel on the freeway and the car has a better fuel consumption because of the tyre. When I goes to off road, there is no problem on the mud and any terrain. Best Tyre if you own the landcruiser.
Great All Round Tyre
My husband bought the car 2 years ago with tyres on it they are still going strong. They are nice and quite and handle extremely well in wet and dry conditions, fuel consumption is better and they are just an allround good tyre wouldn't hesitate to recommend for any make of suv.
Perfect on and off road
I first bought my Yokohama's after buying my stx navara simply listening too the road noise that other tyres made on the road they were quite simply quieter on the road compared with other leading brands and I got 90 thousand km out of them and off road they were great reliable tyers and I highly recommend you trying them they not let you down handling and performance on and off road they are equal too any tyre out for quite a cheap price compared with other leading brands they just won't let you down
If you want to replace tyres regularly, you can't go past Geolandars
I initially fitted 4 Geolandars to our 2003 V6 Grand Vitara and was disappointed with them only lasting 30000km, however several years later, I needed to fit new rubber to our 2004 D22 Diesel Navara Utility. On the recommendation of a friend who is a Yoko dealer, against my better judgement I fitted 4 x 225/75/16 Geolandars (as the ute is never used for towing, is driven predominantly on grass on our property and is by no means used for "spirited" or sport-style driving). These tyres, which are all evenly worn, handled well until about 1/2 worn but have lasted just over 29,000km - I can definitively say that I will never fit Geolandars to another SUV or 4WD.
I purchased 4 geolanders YOK225/75R16 110/107R for my diesel courier from Bob Jane in Ferntree Gully in July 2014 ,service and advice was first class .I have now completed 56000km and the tyres look good for another 40000, but more importantly the grip in the wet is still better than anything Ive had on the ute before .I will have no hesitation in buying this brand again
An Odd Tyre
These tyres are a real mixture of good and bad. When new, good grip on asphalt and dirt. When worn 50% most of that grip starts to go away. Mine had 3-4mm left in the grooves but all the sipes and cross car grooving on the shoulders had disappeared. They have these what I have been told are quietening blocks that appear as the tyre wears ( well before the breaker strips show ), and they the seem to make the tyre become noisy and lose grip in cornering. Straight line grip remains ok, but cornering and gravel roads become a problem, the tyres start to wander. Will not put back on, also way too expensive, I put Pirelli on instead.
