Rate this post

Yokohama unveils innovations for city and off-road drivers alike frequently. The Geolandar A/T G015, a top model, stands out. It uses strong materials, various pitches, and 3D grooves for excellent traction.

This review will look into the Geolandar A/T G015’s performance in real scenarios. We’ll explore its results from the Tyre Hexa Test.

The Geolandar A/T G015 is a key part of the Geolandar series. It offers many options for trucks and SUVs, designed for different roads. This review aims to see if its mix of mud and highway-terrain tire features justifies its cost.

The Geolandar A/T G015 is costly, but it promises great grip on wet and dry roads. It can also handle light off-road driving and tough winter conditions. Yokohama claims it’s quiet on roads, despite its rugged looks.

I was doubtful. Past A/T tires I tested were loud on smooth roads. Could this tire really be quiet and tough? Most highway-terrain tires are quiet. But what about those who want both comfort and off-road skills?

Yokohama Geolandar A/T G015 Review

I got to drive the Toyota Sequoia, then switched to the Jeep Wrangler to test its Yokohama Geolandar A/T G015 tires.

The Jeep Wrangler is popular for its off-road skills and tough look. Its 3.6-liter V6 engine packs a punch, making it fun to drive on all kinds of terrain. The 8-speed automatic transmission is smooth and quick, adding to the driving experience.

Putting on the Yokohama Geolandar A/T G015 tires boosted the Wrangler’s performance. These tires gripped well in mud, over rocks, and on sandy slopes. Off-road, their traction and durability stood out, bringing confidence and control.

On roads, the tires ensured a smooth, quiet ride, showing their flexibility. The steering was sharper and more accurate than the Sequoia, making the drive more engaging.

In short, the Yokohama Geolandar A/T G015 tires perfectly matched the Jeep Wrangler’s needs. They offered a good mix of road comfort and off-road performance.

1. Dry Performance: 8.7/10

Dry Traction: 9/10

The Yokohama Geolandar A/T G015 tires excelled on dry roads with the Jeep Wrangler. They provided great traction and balance, making it easy to handle even on slightly rough roads. The vehicle stayed stable at 40 MPH and quickly adapted to speeds up to 60 MPH.

On highways, these tires were impressive. They smoothly transitioned from regular roads to graded surfaces, ensuring steady traction. The tires also handled lane changes and S-curves with ease.

They are also good for heavy towing. With loads over 1,500 lbs, we noticed some slight drifting. However, they maintained excellent grip with lighter loads. Even fully loaded with six passengers, the tires performed well.

In short, these tires significantly improved the Jeep Wrangler’s handling and stability on dry roads and highways. They are a solid choice for all driving conditions.

Corner Stability: 8.6/10

The Yokohama Geolandar A/T G015 tires performed well on the Jeep Wrangler. They excelled on wide, gentle corners with good approach angles. At speeds below 55 MPH, the tires gripped the road nicely, even during turns. They were safe for late braking and controlled oversteering.

However, on tight, fast corners, they were less reliable. At 60 MPH, correcting mistakes took five extra seconds and was sometimes unpredictable. So, unless you are very skilled and in control, avoid quick turns.

Overall, these tires improved the Jeep’s handling on various terrains. They were particularly good at moderate speeds and on wider turns.

Steering Response: 8.6/10

The Yokohama Geolandar A/T G015 tires on the Jeep Wrangler handled lane merging, departing, and reversing well. Their responsive steering made these moves precise. The tires quickly followed our steering, making it easy to predict their next move. They also reacted well to small adjustments, especially in corners.

Yet, they struggled with many quick direction changes. As we drove more, their responsiveness lessened.

Overall, the Geolandar A/T G015 tires boosted the Jeep Wrangler’s handling in basic moves. But, they need better adaptability for complex driving.

2. Wet Performance: 8.6/10

Wet Traction: 8.5/10

The Yokohama Geolandar A/T G015 tires kept their dry-road performance in shallow puddles and up to 5-inch water. They maintained good grip, even with gentle steering. Speed changes and braking were smooth. Yet, in blind curves, the front tires occasionally slipped more than expected.

In deeper water, their performance was okay. We could still correct skids. Steering delays were common but not enough to endanger the Jeep Wrangler.

Overall, the Geolandar A/T G015 tires were reliable. They offered good control in shallow and moderate water.

Hydroplaning Resistance: 8.6/10

The Yokohama Geolandar A/T G015 tires did well in the rain, avoiding hydroplaning. Their grooves quickly cleared water, ensuring stability. Even with dull steering, they managed wet bridges and hills.

Yet, braking was a problem. Even in light stops, these tires reacted harshly and absorbed more rain than others.

In summary, the Geolandar A/T G015 tires were great on the Jeep Wrangler, keeping control and avoiding hydroplaning. However, their wet braking needs work.

3. Off-Road Performance: 7.9/10

Dirt Traction: 8.5/10

The Yokohama Geolandar A/T G015 tires on the Jeep Wrangler handled loose dirt and gravel well. They managed to navigate basic obstacles and tight corners, thanks to moderate speeds (40 to 55 MPH). However, on hard-packed, wet dirt, they lacked steering response. Thicker gravel roads with mud and puddles could be challenging. It’s important to keep the vehicle’s weight in check in these conditions. Despite these challenges, the tires performed well overall.

Sand Traction: 7.8/10

The Yokohama Geolandar A/T G015 tires, with their grooves and 3D sipes, offered less grip than expected. However, they still managed well on light dunes and soft, drying sand. They handled gradual speed changes and shuffle steering, even on turns and blind curves, better than anticipated.

The tires are good for off-road driving and towing, but it’s wise to limit extra weight to under 400 lbs.

Overall, the Geolandar A/T G015 tires did well on the Jeep Wrangler in sandy conditions. However, they could use more grip for improved off-road performance.

Rock Traction: 8/10

The Yokohama Geolandar A/T G015 tires on the Jeep Wrangler were stable on riverbed boulders. However, they shook slightly when downshifts weren’t timed well. Driving gently was the key. Yet, on smoother terrain, we could easily maintain 55-60 MPH.

However, the tires struggled on wet, slippery rocks. They often hydroplaned, even on a bit of water. This was worse with more than four passengers, making the car less stable. So, driving with fewer passengers and less luggage in the rain is safer.

In conclusion, the Geolandar A/T G015 tires were great on tough terrain. But, their performance on wet rocks shows the need for care and less weight in slippery conditions.

Mud Traction: 7.5/10

The Yokohama Geolandar A/T G015 tires on the Jeep Wrangler did okay in the mud. However, they weren’t great. They slipped as much on wet rocks but more noticeably.

Steering delays were obvious in a straight line. And turning tight corners was hard due to oversteer. Drivers had to be very careful in these corners, especially those with less experience. Speeds under 20 MPH were advised.

When towing under 200 lbs, the tires kept good traction, like on dry rocks.

In summary, these tires handled moderate mud on the Jeep Wrangler. But, their performance on wet rocks and steering need improvement, especially in tough off-road situations.

4. Winter/Snow Performance: 8/10

Light Snow Traction: 8.5/10

The Yokohama Geolandar A/T G015 tires did well on light, snowy roads. Their traction was like on wet roads. This was thanks to their smart grooves and 3D sipes.

They performed almost as well as on-road tires. Steering was slightly delayed on hard-packed areas. Our Jeep Wrangler managed tight corners with ease.

Yet, on mixed snow and dirt (snirt) roads, we faced slower progress and some traction loss.

In summary, these tires shone on light snow. They also provided good handling in various conditions. However, they struggled on mixed surfaces like snirt and smud roads.

Deep Snow Traction: 7.1/10

The Yokohama Geolandar A/T G015 tires performed poorly in heavy snow, offering less traction than off-road mud. As temperatures dropped, they became shakier, making cornering difficult. Lighter vehicles (under 100 lbs) were recommended for corners.

In mild temperatures, the tires were better, providing decent stability on snowy roads. Snow chains on all four tires boosted traction for turns.

Overall, these tires struggled in deep snow and cold. However, they were effective in moderate snow and with snow chains, their handling improved.

Ice Traction: 7.4/10

The Yokohama Geolandar A/T G015 tires’ 3D sipes excel on thick ice over deep snow. They handle sharp turns with slight shakes. However, they provide great stability on straight roads and good grip under 20 MPH. Thus, they are good during late winter to mid-spring, when ice melts. They might replace winter tires for short drives.

Overall, the Geolandar A/T G015 tires perform well on ice. They are stable on straight roads and offer good traction at lower speeds during transitional weather.

5. Comfort: 8.4/10

Ride Quality: 8.5/10

The Yokohama Geolandar A/T G015 tires handle on-road issues well. They offer stable, smooth rides with light loads. These tires also cope well with light dirt and mud without much disturbance.

However, drivers need to be careful with deep water or hard-packed gravel. Insufficient steering could cause the tires to shake.

Overall, the Geolandar A/T G015 tires perform consistently. They maintain stability and comfort on different roads and in moderate off-road conditions. Yet, they need careful steering in tough terrains.

Noise: 8.3/10

The Yokohama Geolandar A/T G015 tires made our Jeep Wrangler cabin louder. But, we found a trick. We alternated between shuffling and downshifting. This cut the noise. Unlike other Yokohama tires, the noise lessened over time. This means the tires might get quieter as they adjust to the road.

6. Treadwear and Durability: 8.2/10

The Yokohama Geolandar A/T G015 tires excel in summer. They handle sharp debris and rocks well. Plus, they offer a 60,000-mile warranty. This ensures smooth and comfortable driving for five years. It also minimizes concerns about wear and shredding. However, their cold-weather performance could be improved.
