New Yokohama Geolandar AT G015 Tires

Looks pretty promising! All sizes M+S rating with the snowflake symbol, replacing the Geolandar ATS. So far the sizes that would fit us right now are the 225/65-17, 235/65-17, 225/75-16, 235/70-16, and 235/75-15. Hoping they come out with more sizes like the ATS. (I'd like a 225/70-16.)

This is nice. I wonder if 235/65/17 will fit without a lift or the pwm. 225/65/17 shouldn't be an issue.

Ordered a set of Yokohama Geolandar G015s and got them installed today. 235/65/17. Got them for $128 per tire through TireRack plus $70 shipping. My shop installed them for $75.

Look amazing, are very quiet, and have a smooth ride. I have Stu the lift and they are only rubbing on full lock. Can't wait to put these to the test

Been looking at these to replace my stock GY SR-As. Are they an improvement offroad? They dont look that much more aggressive..

The edge of the tread is more aggressive. Aside from that they are pretty close

This:



and this:



Much deeper tread, much larger spacing, much more aggressive tread pattern.

Deeper tread and sidewall are the biggest things I noticed. I was asking if they were an improvement offroad, because I would consider those to be aggressive road tires if I was looking at them for my 2500 or my 1500. Im new to the car-sized tire world.

There are a few things that are different:

1) Tread depth

2) Tread space

3) more biting edges

4) different rubber compound

5) overall tread pattern

6) wall thickness/plys.

The SR-A is designed to be quiet on the road, provide low rolling resistance, and not meant to be driven off road, like at all. It is a good tire for a truck that may carry a bit of weight now and then, but mostly just cruise on the highway.

any A/T tire has a deeper tread, typically with 3d aspects to help clear out mud, The space between the lugs is bigger to allow for better traction over rocks, there are more jagged edges, which gives it more grip in all directions (even side to side). The tread has a different compound that is usually softer, and grippier, the tread pattern leaves quietness and rolling distance behind to give better traction off road, and the sidewalls tend to be thicker, and the plys are thicker to be able to better resist tire damage, and can be aired down while still providing structure to the tire.

Not my first rodeo bro, just because im new to Jeeps does not mean im new to the offroading world. I am VERY well aware of the ****ing difference between an all-season and an all-terrain tire. I wanted to know what these tires were like offroad. These specific tires. Ive had MTRs, Duratracs, and KO2s on my trucks. None of my prefered ones are in tbe size I want.

Dude, I re read your message again, and I still reads like you're asking about the difference between the SR-A's and the yokohamas. I gave a valid response to that. Not sure why you're all over my backside for answering the question you asked. This site gets a lot of newbs (new to jeep, new to off roading) and so yeah, I assume that somebody asking if this tire is different than the stock tires is going to get a noob answer.

These are AT lights, nothing like a Duratrac or an MTR. They are very appropriate for the kind of wheeling a patriot is capable of doing.

You can get KO2's in the 225/65r17 size:
BFGoodrich*All-Terrain T/A KO2

I just bought cooper discoverer srx tires in 225 65 r17. Looked at the geolanders but really liked the coopers. They are suppose to beat the goodyear sr a in about every category from the tests i have seen on youtube. Also, this is about the most aggressive all season I could find. The problem I have with all terrains is they are not the best in the snow when the tread wears down, and it wasn't worth the extra money in my opinion for the once a month I drive down some mild offroad trails.
