    Can't talk about LC's but on my Jimny the Yoko's have been good.

    I have Yokohama AT on my Subaru, had them on my Pajero and have them now on my Hilux as well. We do a lot of gravel and 4x4. They have excellent grip on wet and dry. Easily do 100 to 120k km on them. Never had any problems.
    I don't know the other tyres so I can't comment on them.

    I have been pleasantly surprised with the road holding and general open road running on the Yokohama Geo's. I have them fitted to both my Ranger and Everest vehicles. Did a trip now from Nelspruit - Howick - Jhb - back to Nelspruit with the Everest and had no problems. We live in a farming community and Drive on a lot of Sappi Gravel roads that are not in good shape from heavy duty truck traffic and the tyres hold the road fantastically. They also performed well during our very wet season this year.
    Please, donít measure the size of the mountain; talk to the One who can move it.

    Not my personal experience, but that of a good friend
    I believe he had multiple issues with the std Dunlop rubber fitted to his 2.8 Fortuner from factory, including balancing, uneven wear, and out-of-round. Did less than 30kkm with them.

    Replaced them with Geolanders and was very impressed. All above mentioned issues improved, and vehicle felt better when towing his boat. Now done about 40kkm travel on them.

    I have coopers on my ranger. I dont like the way they ride on tar and how noisy they are. When its wet, its almost like walking on wet tiles. One has to feather the throttle lightly as any sudden shift in power will cause the wheels to spin a bit. If you pull away hard enough on a dry road then they spin as well. I dont like this, I like a tyre that grips and should be able to handle the power of the vehicle. Maybe the coopers are not suited to the ranger.

    I've had G012s and G015s. Both good. Only issue is that I found the sidewall a little weak. Grip: Amazing on gravel and wet

    G015 if you can find anyTwice now we had to fit something else as there was nothing available and they could not say when arrivals are due.If you damage one tyre,you will battle to find a replacement.Goodluck.
