Experience the Yokohama Geolandar M/T G003

An optimized block to void ratio and unique tread design give the G003 dependable grip in dirt, sand, mud and on rocks. Optimized sipes around the tread further aid in traction on both on or off-road terrain. For street use, the G003 is much quieter than you might expect from a mud-terrain tire. The model was manufactured with the Geo-Shield technology and the special aggressive sidewall armor that protect the tire against off-road damage. The sidewall armor places differently shaped tread elements on the tire’s sidewalls that prevent abrasions, cuts and bruises from shortening the tire’s lifetime.

The Geo-Shield technology places multiple sidewall plies and steel belts into the tire’s internal structure which improves its protection against damage. The special triple polymer tread compound and the wide and flat footprint work together to boost the tread life length. The polymer compound slows the tread wear rate down, while the flat footprint prevents uneven tread wear formations with the even pressure distribution which enhances the tread life and the model’s usability significantly.

Yokohama uses a computer optimized variable pitch tread sequence that significantly reduces road noise. This is a noticeable improvement over the older model, and one of the quieter MT tires in its class. Tread life is extended due to the triple-polymer compound, which Yokohama claims is 8% longer lasting than leading competitor tires.The tire’s tread design and reinforced structure makes it perfect for the harsh off-road conditions. The tread elements firmly grip the road surface while the tires are in motion, which upgrades the soft, loose and even uneven terrain surface gripping ability.

The tire especially shines when it is performing in deep mud and loose dirt. The high void ratio and the staggered tread block placement maintain a clean footprint by dispersing mud and ejecting rocks stuck between the tread elements. In this manner, the tire is not blocked from its contact with the terrain surface, while the stone ejectors effectively prevent stone retention from harming the tire’s casing. The improved off-road traction and self-cleaning nature of the tread ensure a secure off-road drive.

PROS:

  • Damage prevention features
  • Durable off-road performance
  • Reduced on-road noise due to the variable pitch
  • Extended tread life compared to the MT+

CONS:

  • Not the top tire for rock climbing

PRODUCT INFORMATION

The Geolandar M/T G003 features a special triple polymer tread compound and an optimal tread design, with large siped tread blocks, that enhance the dry, wet and light winter weather road gripping ability. The compound keeps its flexible traction throughout the year, including in colder temperatures, while the tread elements firmly grip the road surface to ensure a secure performance all year. The high void ratio eliminates snow and slush from below the footprint and prevents them from blocking the tire’s contact with the terrain surface to guarantee a secure performance. The better year round traction and self-cleaning capability promote a safer driving experience on off-road terrains. The tire’s aggressive tread design and strong structure makes it perfect for the harsh off-road conditions.

The improved off-road traction and self-cleaning nature of the tread ensure a secure off-road drive. The flat footprint’s constant road contact and the reinforced internal structure enhance the steering responsiveness and driving stability. As a result, the steering becomes faster and more precise in its response to the driver’s commands, while the structure is stabilized against the driving pressure affecting it. This enables the driver to confidently control the vehicle on all off-road terrains.
