    Default Yokohama Geolander AT015

    HI forum,

    Loved my Cooper AT3 but can't pay almost R4000 per tyre to replace, I"m looking at the Golanders ATO15.

    I've seen some initial input on the forum about them, but wanted to see if anyone could give update information. I'd be putting them on my 2005 Prado.

    Input appreciated!

    thanks,
    John

    I have had Coopers ST & STT on my old Prado which were great and gave good mileage.

    I replaced the Bridgestones on my Suzuki GV with Yokohama G012.
    Enormous improvement in ride comfort, roadholding and road noise.
    I will be replacing 2 with G015 this week and hope they give better mileage than the G012.

    Good luck

    I am very happy with my GE 012 Yokohama tyres. Bought the car with them on 37k km and currently just under 70k km. So far no punctures, have done plenty of dirt roads and a few trails. Looks like they might reach 100k km, quite a bit of thread left. Know a farmer in the Sandveld that only puts Geolanders on his bakkies and for good reason.

    I do know of someone who got flatspots on his, but still driving around on them Can be various causes for flatspots though

    I have no problems with them (G015). Did many trips through NAM & BOTS with the ATS (previous). IMO they are good value for money. I got +- 80 000 km on the ATS. They appear to be narrower as the ATS but still a good looking durable tyre.

    Fitted 5.Through Kgalagadi, Kaa, hukuntsi and Hwange and some more. Used to BFG but changed. Silent tyre, strong, good in sand and mud.
    Picked up a strong thorn in the Kruger and later noticed a slow release of air over week intervals. took it of, saw the thorn, gater and it is fine. Will not happen with BFG.

    Will buy them again

    Also had AT/S 12 on my Fortuner, great all round tyer. Did trails, bad dirt roads etc and also great mileage and no issues.

    Replaced with GO15's in October and so far so good, been through Baviaans twice, deflated to 1.2 bar and idled up some very loose and rocky mountains, great on tar also. Paid R1850 each.

    The new ones do not look as aggressive as the 12's, more like a Highway tyre, unless you can find the LT version that looks slightly more like an AT tyre. But then you are going to pay as the LT version is alot more expensive.

    Rough idea - the GO15 AT at Errols tyres in 17" is around R2000 and the LT version with white lettering is R3300.

    Anyway, personally I am very happy with the 15's.

    I do not take too much notice of the latest tyre shootout (but that is a whole other thread and discussion on the forum)

    Cheers

    Just fitted Fitted 5 Yokohama Geolanders AT G015 265/65/R17 on my Prado. Initial impression is great on tar . . . now I need to find some dirt roads! Tread looks perfect for my use, being city, main roads, gravel roads and sand.

    Been using G012's on my 2 Wildtraks since 2011, not an issue. I don't know about the new one (G015's) but, wouldn't doubt it at all.
