Yokohama Tire’s newly launched Geolandar A/T XD is a work truck tire engineered for full-size pickup trucks and commercial vans. It is severe snow service-rated and molded for optional studs offering outstanding on- and off-road traction all year round. The A/T XD is initially available in 21 sizes ranging from 16 to 20 inches, with more sizes coming later in the year.
“The A/T XD is a tough, all-terrain tire that was built to take the punishment hard-working trucks and vans encounter every job site,” said Drew Dayton, Yokohama’s senior product planning manager, consumer tires.
Benefits of the Geolandar A/T XD include Yokohama’s GEO-SHIELD technology, which features a three-ply sidewall, full nylon cap, and high turn-up carcass to assure merciless traction and reliable protection. The GEO-SHIELD technology increases the performance, and the sidewall armor creates a bold, new look and protects from lateral impacts.
The Geolandar A/T XD has outstanding all-weather performance attained by an aggressive tread design with hundreds of wavy sipes combined with an optimized void-to-lug ratio to provide powerful all-weather traction. Additionally, the A/T XD is severe snow service-rated (3PMSF) and is pinned with pin holes that allow the user to install #15 studs as an option for better winter traction.
Long tread life comes from the A/T XD’s wide, flat profile, which distributes stresses evenly across the entire tread area to maximize even wear. Enhanced cut, and chip resistance is accomplished via Yokohama’s high-density compound, which has a high level of natural rubber to provide long tread life and enhance cut-and-chip resistance.
