    Yokohama Geolander AT

    I just ordered a set of 33x12.50R15 Yokohama Geolander A/T's, and I was wondering if any of you have ran this tire and what your thoughts are on them? I heard they do very well in snow, but I'm not sure how they do on other surfaces. I live in Colorado and work at a ski resort so snow performance is a main concern for me.

    My personal opinion, being a Subaru owner, is Yokohama tires cost too much and have rice paper for sidewalls. My wife's Legacy had the....advan a82? I think? OE on her Spec Edition. They wear too fast, and when time came to replace them, at 20k, I read a shit ton of horror stories on sidewall blowouts from potholes, and the price was stupid. So I put GY Eagle GT on it. Awesome tire, awesome wear. Fast forward to this year, bought her 14 crosstrek xv. A week later, she sends me a pic of a 3" tear in her sidewall. Yoko Geolander G95 this time. I did not see this tear when we bought it, and I'm pretty thorough about that stuff. And it jumped right out at me when I saw it in person. Who knows what happened before we bought it, low air, run flat, etc, but no other obvious signs of abuse. So, being a Subaru, had to replace all 4. I went with GY Eagle Sport, the replacement for the GT. Happy as a clam at less than 3/4 the cost. Maybe half, cant recall. As always, YMMV.
    Oh, snow performance. Can't say g95 vs sport, but a82 vs gt, gt was superior here in NH. Maybe partly the age, but seriously, 20k out of a tire? Weak. The gt's were great until we got rid of the car. And the GY road stability is far better, but not really pertinent to your usage. But in Co., work at ski resort, get snows.

    They actually make 2 different tires for small SUV's and another LT pattern with thicker side walls (I believe)

    I'll do more looking to this though, thanks for sharing your experience

“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
