Yokohama: a new Geolandar 3PMSF for SUVs

New tyres Published the 18/03/2016 by Alexandre Lenoir

It was at the Geneva Motor Show that Yokohama added a new reference to its Geolandar range. Designed for mid and large size SUVs, the Geolandar A/T G015 is certified for winter use with the 3PMSF symbol.

To improve driving stability and handling, tyre manufacturer Yokohama has opted for large tread blocks. Its carcass features a hexagon thick steel bead capable of handling the significant weights associated with this type of vehicle, as well as the heavy loads they sometimes carry. Furthermore, sidewalls are reinforced to protect the tyre against the aggressions of everyday life.

On the tread, four grooves efficiently drain water to reduce the phenomenon of hydroplaning. Also, the optimised contact shape minimises wear at the shoulders while improving grip.

The Geolandar A/T G015 will be available from July 2016, for rim diameters ranging from 15 to 20 inches.
