Highway tires offer first-rate driving and load durability, combined with all season traction, to ensure your vehicle’s exceptional performance at all times. They are meant to be mounted on SUVs and light trucks and, due to this, they need to be sturdier to handle the extra weight of these vehicles.

The Geolandar H/T G056 comes with a 50-70,000 mile treadwear warranty offered by Yokohama. The crossover and SUV sizes receive a 70,000 mile warranty, while the light trucks sizes, which are usually without a warranty, get a 50,000 mile warranty.Priority Tire provides a wide range of highway terrain tires for your crossover vehicles, SUVs and light trucks and you are sure to find a model that suits your needs. One of our most sought-after models is Yokohama’s Geolandar H/T G056. This tire combines excellent all weather traction, fuel efficiency, superb durability and a quiet on-road performance.
ALL WEATHER TRACTION
The Geolandar H/T G056 guarantees remarkable all weather traction with its tread design and all season tire compound. All season tires are capable of safely performing throughout the year. This model utilizes its optimized tire compound, which combines silica with Yokohama’s Orange Oil Technology to increase its grip and maintain its rubber flexibility all year round, including in colder temperatures. The tread design features a detailed siping pattern and numerous lateral grooves that improve the tire’s grip on the road surface. The better traction and grip ensure a secure performing capability in all conditions.
The model is also capable of preventing hydroplaning. Hydroplaning happens when water and slush trapped on the road surface cuts off the tire’s contact with the road. This causes the vehicle to skid as the driver loses control over it. The Geolandar H/T G056’s zigzag circumferential grooves manage to channel this water and slush away from the tire’s footprint, keeping the tire’s road contact at all times and enhancing the wet and winter weather road gripping ability.
Highway tires must have great load and driving durability, especially ones made for light trucks. Their better durability improves their driving security, enabling the driver to confidently maneuver the vehicle throughout the tire’s performance.
The Geolandar H/T G056 features a reinforced internal structure. The construction consists of spirally wrapped nylon strengthened twin steel belts and two polyester casing plies that improve the tire’s strength. This reinforced structure maintains the tire’s optimal shape under the driving and load pressure affecting it. It does not allow the shape to deform under this pressure, which enables the tire to securely perform with its utmost load capability.
LENGTHENED TREAD LIFE
A longer tread life is always a desirable tire feature. Manufacturers utilize different technologies to lengthen their tires’ tread life and usability as an extended tread life makes the tire more popular on the market. The Geolandar H/T G056 used Yokohama’s compound and tread pattern technologies to ensure the longest possible tread life. The 50-70,000 mile treadwear warranty is the guarantee for its long life.
The tread pattern features special adaptive shoulder blocks and a symmetric tread design which upgrades the even pressure distribution along the tread area. The adaptive shoulder blocks form a continuous shoulder rib that keep the tire’s contact with the road surface at all times, while the symmetric tread design creates a flat footprint that optimizes the tire’s road contact. The tread’s triple 3D siping detail stabilizes the tread elements and actively prevents tread flexing during the drive. This enables the tire to equally spread out the forces of acceleration, cornering and braking on the tire’s surface and preventing irregular tread wear formations.
Furthermore, the special tread design consists of high silica levels and orange oil that work together to slow the tread wear rate down. These elements make the compound wear-resistant, which ensures an extended tread life and usability.
A tires fuel efficiency is determined by the amount of energy the vehicle needs to keep them in motion. The tire’s tread design and compound need to ease the driving pressure off the tire to provide an easier rolling by reducing the pressure affecting the tires during the drive.
The Geolandar H/T G056’s special orange oil compound increases its all weather traction, lowering the pressure influencing the tire. The lowered pressure manages to decrease the tire’s rolling resistance, which determines the amount of energy the vehicle needs to maintain the tire’s motion. In this manner, the lessened rolling resistance reduces the vehicle’s fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, guaranteeing a fuel efficient and environmentally friendly performance in all weather.
A model’s tread design can determine the amount of road noise that is heard in the vehicle’s cabin. Tires that are designed for on-road use are usually manufactured to lower the road and tread pattern noise heard while the tires are in motion, as to not ruin the passengers’ driving comfort.
The Geolandar H/T G056 features adaptive shoulder blocks which help control the road noise levels. These blocks form a continuous rib on the tire’s shoulders, which maintain its road contact at all times and create a closed shoulder pattern. This prevents airwaves from entering the footprint and coming into contact with the tread elements. In this manner, the tire guarantees a comfortable and quiet performance as the tread pattern does not allow the formations of road and tread pattern noise during the drive.
If you need help deciding what type of tire would best fit your vehicle, take a look at our list below. We have compiled a short list of the most important factors you need to consider before selecting tires for your vehicle.
Be sure to find the exact size of tire that fits your vehicle, in order for it to perform properly. This information is located on the tire’s sidewall or in the user’s manual of the vehicle. The Priority Tire website offers a wide range of sizes for the Yokohama Geolandar H/T G056 model.
The tire’s advanced compound provides a fuel-efficient performance. Its increased traction eases the driving pressure off the tire, while also lowering the rolling resistance. The lowered rolling resistance translates to reduced fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
Before choosing a tire, you need to make sure you’re buying what you need. Tires come in a wide range of performance capabilities and applications. This particular model was intended to be mounted on light trucks and SUVs.
