JEEP LIFE AND THE GREAT OUTDOORS
"Not all those who wander are lost"
Recently I made a switch from a long time favorite to something brand new from Yokohama Tires. Sure I was a little hesitant, but I've heard nothing but good things about the Geolandar M/T G003 and come on…just look at them!
So…on they went and off I went. Gold Mountain is the testing ground for these babies. The day couldn't be more perfect. 80 degrees, sunny with a light breeze, and the best part…not a single person but us on the trail.
The Yoko Geolandar is a new design that doesn't just look aggressive, but has the engineering behind it to compete with the best out there in the class. Long life, super durable, grips better than any I've tried before and on pavement they are pretty quiet.
Once on the trail I immediately noticed the traction. I was gripping everything and the ride was nice a comfortable. The first obstacle was a small rock shelf and after watching the first guy up I was a definitely curious on how my Jeep would do with out lockers. As you can guess the Geolandar climbed like a champ. The footprint was definitely the difference.
After another little climb we came across a rock garden and this round was more about the comfort the the technical ability. Rock after rock was smooth. Plenty of grip and again the footprint created by the tire was amazing. I've had washboard fire roads that felt worse running other tires.
By the end of the trail I was all in with Yokohama Tires and the Geolandar M/T might just be the perfect everyday tire option for any Jeep! If 6 months from now these tires are treating me like they did the day I ran Gold Mountain...I believe Yokohama just found another customer for life.
