Yokohama will begin European sales of the Geolandar M/T G003 mud terrain tyre for SUVs and pickup trucks by mid-year.
The tyres, to be introduced to specific country markets sequentially, will be available in 23 sizes, from 20-inches to 15-inches with POR (Professional Off-Road) stamped on the tyre’s sides. The same tyre has been sold in United states since July 2017.
The Geolandar M/T G003 is a total upgrade from its predecessor, featuring a new tread pattern, side design, profile, construction and rubber compound, all based, says Yokohama, on technological feedback received from participants in the most-demanding off-road races around the world.
The tread pattern of the Geolandar M/T G003 includes large mesh lug grooves and sequential sipes for excellent traction on various off-road surfaces. In addition, the tyre has a thickened side with an aggressive side block in the upper part of the tyre’s side that increases cut and wear resistance.
Yokohama says the tyre maintains the quiet, comfortable on-road performance on the highway and city streets achieved by its predecessor.
