I love when new tires come out from any manufacturer. I really love it when it’s a company who puts so much effort into the off-road community. The blending of more aggressive all-terrain treads and adding at features to mud-terrain tires has made both segments so much more versatile for everyday use. The new X-AT from Yokohama looks to be in that exact same vein of new releases. I can tell you I look forward to seeing this in person.
SANTA ANA, CA. – (May 28, 2019) – Rugged gets redefined with Yokohama Tire’s new GEOLANDAR X-AT™extreme all-terrain tire. Designed for pickup trucks, Jeeps and SUVs, the X-AT goes on sale July 1 with 27 sizes planned, ranging from 15 to 22 inches.
“The GEOLANDAR X-AT delivers it all,” said Bob Abram, Yokohama’s senior manager of product planning. “It offers ultimate off-road performance without sacrificing any on-road comfort, making it a great performance upgrade for a variety of pick-up trucks and SUVs, no matter how or where they’re driven.”
Abram added the X-AT is backed by a 45,000-mile limited treadwear warranty and will include load range F sizes for heavier carrying capacities. Plus, it features a dual sidewall design, which allows the consumer to choose the appearance they like the best. “With the GEOLANDAR X-AT, Yokohama now has one of the most complete light truck tire lineups in the market.”
Benefits for the GEOLANDAR X-AT include:
— Gripping off-road traction is achieved by dynamic, large shoulder blocks that are varied in length to create a biting edge and promote mud- and stone-ejection. Also, the angular center blocks provide extra strength and grip.
— Off-road durability and improved puncture resistance are assured thanks to Yokohama’s GEO-SHIELD™technology, which features multiple sidewall plies, a high turn-up carcass and a full nylon cap.
— Long tread life is a lock with Yokohama’s new HD2 compound. It’s made of a special triple-polymer blend engineered for reliable long tread life and impressive cut- and chip-resistance.
— A quiet, comfortable ride is guaranteed due to the zig-zag grooves that interrupt airflow to limit pattern and road noise.
