Yokohama Tire’s newly launched Geolander A/T XD is a work truck tire engineered for full-size pickup trucks and commercial vans. It is severe snow service-rated and molded for optional studs offering outstanding on- and off-road traction all year round. The A/T XD is initially available in 21 sizes ranging from 16 to 20 inches, with more sizes coming later in the year.
Benefits of the Geolander A/T XD, according to Yokohama, include:
- On/off-road durability is achieved by Yokohama’s GEO-SHIELD technology, which features a three-ply sidewall, full nylon cap and high turn-up carcass to assure merciless traction and reliable protection. Plus, the sidewall armor provides protection from lateral impacts.
- All-weather performance is attained by an aggressive tread design that has hundreds of wavy sipes combined with an optimized void-to-lug ratio to provide powerful all-weather traction. Additionally, the A/T XD is severe snow service-rated (3PMSF) and is pinned with pin holes that allows the user to install No. 15 studs as an option for better winter traction.
- Long tread life comes from the A/T XD’s wide, flat profile which distributes stresses more evenly across the entire tread area to maximize even wear.
- Enhanced cut and chip resistance is accomplished via Yokohama’s high-density compound which has a high level of natural rubber to provide long tread life and enhance cut-and-chip resistance.
