Default Yokohama Geolander M/T +

I've been searching for new tires to get. I called my local Tire Discounters and they are having a sale right now on Yokohama Geolander's. I was just wondering if anyone on here has them or used them. I searched but the thread involving them was from 09 so I figured I'd start a new one. Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

They are made in America, but the guy recommended them to me since they were on sale he knows I'm looking for a nice beefy tire

He quoted me like $883 for a set of 4. Which is like $220 a tire but I can probably work him down to like $200 since I'm gonna be buying a full-size spare. And rims also from there.

Buddy of mine has them on his Dodge 1500. AWSOME tire wears well and goes through mud like a Super Swamper. Mildly lound on the highway though

yoko's are excellent tires. they perform great in whatever you throw at them.. BUT they have a downside.

They're soft compound rubber, meaning they will wear a little faster than others.
If your alignment isn't true, they will cup and make a shitton of noise faster than any other hard compound tire.

That being said, they're amazing tires and will last a good while as long as you rotate and balance them regularly.

I have heard nothing but good about the General Grabber AT2s. actually considering them after the BFGs go

http://www.offroaders.com/tech/AT-MT...abber-AT-2.htm



They are "almost" identical to the BFG. I think the side walls are 2 ply versus BFGs 3-ply. but if you are not doing any rock crawling, it doesnt matter.

every other oil change. you know.. the norm. Most tire shack's even have a "lifetime balance/rotation" program that can be purchased along with the tires for $5 a wheel. i always buy it, bc who the hell wants to rotate their own 33's?lol

Haha, agreed. The place I'm looking at has free inflation, rotation, and all that when you buy 2 or more tires.
