estimated that in 2003, 42 percent of all tires sold will
be mounted on light truck vehicles. Yet, the light truck
vehicles those tires are mounted on are not all used for
the same purpose. Yokohama has designed and manufactured
a tire that would fit three different vehicle applications.
The Geolandar H/T-S tire incorporates design and construction
variations depending on the vehicle it fits.
something for everyone in the Geolandar H/T-S.
Fitments – Original Equipment (G051)
For the majority of light truck and SUV owners, every-day
driving – going to work, picking up the kids or going
on vacation – is the main use of their vehicle. The
integrated design and construction of the Geolandar H/T-S
yields true Yokohama style and performance, delivering an
excellent ride, great performance and long life. In addition,
large shoulder blocks provide strength and stiffness for
tread compounds assist the Geolandar H/T-S in delivering
high-mileage durability, while cross-grooves enhance its
all-season capabilities in snow and ice. Constant contact
tread blocks reduce low-pitch noise caused by air passing
through the tire grooves.
With the increased popularity of Plus 2 and Plus 3 light
truck and SUV fitments, the Geolandar H/T-S provides enhanced
performance and dedicated truck design construction that
only Yokohama can offer. The inch-up sizes offer a distinct
sidewall styling to compliment the sporty image. These tires
are not just sporty and bigger, they are properly engineered.
Outstanding handling is key in this fitment. The unidirectional
tread design features large shoulder and smaller grooves
delivering outstanding response grip and cornering. Add
to that a high performance casing profile for quick steering
response and ride comfort and a solid center rib that reduces
noise and you have one awesome high performance ride.
Truck Load Range E (G053)
Yokohama’s technological advantage provides appropriate
reinforced product applications that exceed customer expectations.
Three-ply casing construction handles heavy loads at highway
speeds and delivers outstanding durability. The wider solid
center rib also adds to the tire’s durability and
adds greater directional stability. The deeper groove depth
of the Load Range E sizes contributes to the Geolandar H/T-S’s
enhanced wet and snow traction and the longer wear of the
Geolandar H/T-S comes with a 60,000 Mile Limited Tread Warranty
on Standard and Load Range E applications. The tire is available
in 50, 60, 65, 70, and 75 aspect ratios in rim diameters
ranging from 15”-20”. Sizes also include 30x9.50R15
and 31x10.50R15. The Geolandar H/T-S carries UTQG Rating
between 460/AA/A and 500 A/B depending on the size.
