Git Up and Go Off-Road

By topgearsingapore, 15 November 2021

Taking the beaten path isn’t for everyone, and it most definitely isn’t for every car. In order to get all four wheels off paved asphalt, you’ll need a couple of things. 

Minimally, you’ll need more ground clearance, typically by way of a raised suspension setup. You’d also need a vehicle that has sharper approach and departure angles for tackling steeper inclines and declines.

Crucially, you’ll need grip. Loads of it. Enough grip and traction to take on a properly rugged bit of track or to excel on paved asphalt roads.

To cope with all the off-road and on-road duties, the Yokohama Geolandar family has tyres for a wide variety of vehicles for all the aforementioned purposes. Ranging from extreme 4X4s that can take you across the Sahara, to luxury SUVs made to ferry its passengers in comfort. The Geolandar tyre family has got you covered.

Take the Geolandar H/T G056 for instance. A highway terrain tyre capable of performing in all seasons and road conditions. No stranger to off-road duties, the Geolandar H/T G056 is developed for SUVs and trucks all year round on the road, even in winter conditions the likes of which Singapore would never see. 

Blending a quiet ride with all-season traction, the H/T G056’s continuous rib and advanced silica compound are designed to promote long-lasting, even wear even as your rack up the miles. The tyre’s triple 3D sipes also enable the treads to bite into the road, improving traction when conditions take a turn for the worse.

Should you prefer a more comfortable performance-oriented ride in your premium crossover, the Geolandar X-CV G057 would be an excellent pick. With its asymmetrical tread pattern and advanced silica compound, the X-CV G057 dishes out excellent handling and grip in all seasons. The tyre also has a unique five-pitch block variation that reduces NVH for a quieter composed ride.

Another excellent alternative for road-going all-season tyres is the Geolandar CV G058. Developed for crossovers and small to medium-sized SUVs, this tyre was constructed using a new CV-2 Compound with micro silica and circumferential grooves to improve grip in wet conditions and resist hydroplaning. The CV G058 also features a multi-pitch tread design that reduces road noise for a more comfortable ride.

When the going gets really tough, the Geolandar A/T G015 would be the best fit for you. The A/T G015 is an all-terrain tyre for both on and off-road use. Rugged, durable, built tough with its Enduro-compound construction, the A/T G015 is made for light trucks and SUVs that can take the beaten track thanks to its EDGETEC Grooves and triple 3D sipes, which bite into the ground for maximum traction.

Rest assured, with Yokohama’s Geolandar range, you’ll be set for all road conditions in any inclement weather situation you’d come across.
