What are the opinions on the Geolanders? They kind of look like a good tire but you don't see them very often. Is it because they suck? Give some feedback. Thanks.

Great Tire.
They have very good wear characteristics and are great in snow and ice. I had 2 sets of the at's and loved them. The MT's are supposed to grip like crazy and still remain fairly quiet. (for a mud tire) Great looks 2.

i had the 35x12.5-15's on my blazer.. work exelent. nice sticky rubber, i also had them siped, worked awesome in snow/ice..
the only weak point i can think of is that they seemed to have a realy soft sidewall, they air down verry nice, i got a verry good bulge at 15 psi, but i dont know how well they would hold up on jaged sharp rocks.
they rid verry good, none of the 5 of them took more than 2 oz to ballance. if you want one for a spare, they are directional, i recomend mounting it as a passenger tire, since it seems about 80% of the flats seem to be on that side.

for a dirver/ trail rig, i highly recomend them

according to the yoko rep i talked to, the at is a very good tire which has alot alot like a cross-between all terrain and mud terrain. Their mud terrain is made to be a tire for off road only, and wouldnt work well for a daily driver, as the expected tread lift is around 10-15,000 miles. He in effect told me that if i need a true mud tire, i would be better off going with a bfg mud because of how many miles i drive.

funny i had well over 30k miles on them w/ a heavy diesel blazer, locked front and rear, and they still had atleast 25-30% left.

yes they are soft, but sticky..
i imagine on a lighter rig esp if it doesnt have lockers , youd get better tread life.

huh, guess the guy at the off road expo didnt know how long they would last.. he told me they would like 10k under a 3500 lb jeep :flipoff2: I was wondering how in the heck they ever sold any.

I have owned about 5 sets of the Mt's and 3 sets of the at's ( I work for Yokohama and get a good discount!) I love the Mt's for an everyday driver they are great on the highway especially when it is raining. I air them down to 12 psi offroad with no problems even shoving rocks into their puny 2 ply sidewall.

The at's are a great all around tire also.

The only complaint I have on the mt's are traction on packed snow due to no siping and the fact that you will be lucky to get 20-25K on them.

I really like mine. Very soft rubber, gets chunked up on razor rock some (self siping) For a light vehicle I think they are great, mine are wearing pretty fast though - trail only use
