YOKOHAMA GEOLANDAR A/T-S LT275/65R18

Has anyone had any experience with these tires? I'm checking to see what's available for a reasonable price in my area and this one looks good, but just curious if they'll last as long as the Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armor tires I had on my old truck. I'd like something with plenty of traction in the snow and this one looks good for that and the tread warranty is around 50k miles which is ok for me.

Have you had that tire before and if so, how well did it hold up?

I have not personally. If it helps, a friend of mine ran them on his 06 Suburban. He was an avid outdoor guy always in the snow or camping or just being off pavement. He liked them a lot. He said that they were cheaper than my KO's that I run, but he felt that they were close in durability/wear.

Thanks. The wearing is one of the things I was most concerned about since these cheap Wrangler SR-A tires I have now are probably 70% gone with only 33k miles. I like what I see so far about the Yokohama tires.

Ran them on my jeep in a previous life and they were great no complaints. They got a healthy workout too in a blizzard and handled it well. I'm looking at throwing them on my truck also.

They are awesome. I had a set on my 08 f150 and they were so good I put a set on my 13 f150. I found my tire for life, as long as they don't change them. I have the E-rated AT-S's on mine in 275-65 18. They wear like iron and dig really well. The 10plys like I have are a deeper tread and you can feel it a bit right away, but it doesn't last long. They are great on dry roads, no hydroplaning at all, above average on ice and are terrific in snow. If you have any more questions let me know via PM if I don't respond to this thread.

Forgot to add, I traded my 08 on my 13 and the salesman asked if I wanted my tires swapped over, I told him that the old tires had 30k on them. He was shocked. I have 10k on my new set and there are still the manufacturing marks across the tread of the tire. Basically these are going to go for a long time, I figure I will get 65 to 70k out of them. Again, they are 10 ply tires and I would suggest nothing less to you. I just air them up to 40 psi and run them, rotate every 10k or so. Go on my page and look under my Vehicles photo album, I have a pic of them.

Thanks for the feedback, everyone. I'll be ready for new tires probably by springtime. Just checking out my options. I like this Yokohama best. Glad to hear positive reviews.

We ran these on a Nissan Xterra and got maybe 30K out of them. It doesn't say where your from but they were terrible in the snow.
Hope this helps
