Yokohama Geolander M/T

Hi I came over from the Suzuki board to try and get some input on these tires. My samurai only sees asphalt for a couple miles when I go out for a trail ride and sits in my garage till the next run so I'm looking for the best offroad tire. I currently have 29" TSL's on the zuk and so far have worked great but I'm moving up to a 31" and I'm thinking of trying something different. Trails range from muddy to rocks and everything inbetween. Also I don't want to spend more then $125.00 per tire. I know this is a directional tire and that keeps some people from getting them. The reviews I read said the rubber is soft which in turn makes the tires stick to everything, and in the mud they clean themselves out pretty well. What I'm worried about is the sidewall strength and tread depth. Tread life means nothing since it's not a daily driver. I would like to hear any feedback that anyone has on these tires or if I should just stick with the TSL's. Thank you!

I think you will be happier with the TSL's, if you can afford them in the larger size. That opinion is based on what your stated use is.

If they are anything like the Geolander AT then side wall strength should be good and tread depth quite deep. The ride was very stiff so Im just thinking the sidewalls should be strong. When I compared the tread depth to other manuf. , the AT was noticebly deeper. Check the various tire web sites if you wanna campare the MT

Re: Yokohama Geolander M/T

the 33" TSL's on my zuk are indestructible. they have survived cuts, beadlosses, and fire! still going strong. the down point is that they are so stiff in the sidewall fo rthe lightweight zuk. mine are at 2psi all the time on my zuk, and look like they have 10 in them.
the fire hurt them the most, but still have great trewad, just slightly different on the faces that where on top while the old bronco was on fire. notice he almost different like tread patterns bewteen the two front tires? the samller center section was up during the fire.
