Yoko Geolander MT's, specifically the 38/40 sizes.

Just wondering if anybody here is running these tires in the 38 or 40 size variety. I'm thinking the 38s might be the ticket for me, the price is definitely right compared to all the other brands. how long are they lasting you guys? I'm REAAAAALLLYYY tempted to go with the 4D's, but I'd have to get me that RK 3.5 X factor mid arm suspension as well as regearing to 5.13s which is already on the short list. the 38s are 331 and the 40s are 339 or something on discounttiredirect. this is what's really getting me thinking, for 8 dollars more a tire........The front axle is getting sleeved and gusseted regardless when it gets regeared this fall.

Check with Constantine. He's running the 38s on his rig and is down in Corpus Christi.

has anybody run these tires yet? There's gotta be people out there running the 38s/40s.. I'm pretty much sold on the pitbull rocker radials but dang the price for these tires is nice... I'm mainly curious if they're true to size, how they perform, etc.

its insane how little feedback there is out there about these tires.. i found an article about a mag doing a mud test, and the geolanders scored last. But this was deep gooey thick mud, and they did mention that the tires did extremely well on a muddy/slick hill climb in 2wd, up there with the swampers. I HATE mud, but the muddy/slick hill climb ratings is encouraging. Is Constantine still around?

yokohama
geolandar mt+
40x13.50r17
38 7/8" mounted on truck at 25psi
13 1/8" wide
17x8.5" wheel



I found that off colorado K5. Seems like alot of people gripe about tread life, but with the old tires. apparently the tires are a new tread compound that are supposed to last longer. they were saying 20-25k miles on the old tires. Main gripe is the sidewalls, there's people talking about pine roots cuttin the sidewalls with ease. dont know if this is with the old tires. Dunno if Yoko redid the sidewalls as well. Might still be worth it if i get them from discount with the tire warranty.

I've been running them in 38's for almost a year. Love them, they've gone though everyhing that I've thrown at them, especially compared to the ProCrap Extreme MT's they replaced. Tread wear has been pretty good so far too.

I'd recommend them.

I know it's not the size you're asking about, but I'm running the 35's and I won't go back to them when the time comes. They wear funky and are a directional tire, which may or may not play a factor in the tread life. They were priced right at the time though.

I do have the Hankook MT's on my Chevy that I've been pleased with. Price was good too...

I can't find the same price that you did on these. Got a link? Also anyone that has them how do they do in the snow? I have been less that pleased with the Toyo M/Ts in the white stuff.

Looks Damn good!! Have you had any issues with sidewalls? Looks like you've done some wheeling similar to the kind of stuff I do.

Thanks, and I haven't had any issues. Compared to the ProComps which were chunked and sliced by a trip down a gravel road, I couldn't be any happier.

um considering there's a snowball's chance in hell of getting a 38-40 MTR, i think that question is null and void!

Does anyone know if the Yoko tire is made from silica modified rubber (like MT/R with Kevlar) or standard grades of rubber (like Mickey Thompson MTZ's). The silica added to the rubber is what makes the tread so much more pliable, but still keeps the wear restitance pretty high..

One of my friends who's seem the tires first hand commented on how shallow the tread depth was. Any of you guys got a tread depth gauge to measure how tall the tread blocks are?

Get a penny and use lincolns head for tread depth.

LOL. Sounds plenty deep to me too. Sounds like my buddy needs to either get his eyes checked or lay off the keystone!! LOL

After more research I see the 33-37 sizes have 17-32nds as opposed to the 21-32nds that the 38 and 40 have. The tires do have a silica compound. Also, the 38 and 40 are c load as opposed to d on the smaller tires which should equate to a better ride especially for someone with a 2 door.

Hell I might start thinking about selling my km2s and order a set of 38s. My wife gave me the well known Hell fawkin no look when 4d's slipped into the conversation. She gave me the same looks when I got the 37s and now she loves the look. Hrmmmm.

I know it's apples to oranges, but I have been happy with my Yokohama Geolander ATs. 25k on them and wearing like iron, and I'm not kind to them. Mine are 35's.
