Yokohama Geolander M/T\'s?

Anyone have any experiences with these? I'm interested in a set of 35's for my truck after I do the solid axle swap and lift. I'm impressed with the reviews of them, and their nice price. I'd just like to hear any real world experiences I can. Thanks.

I've got the 31's on my Jeep. They give better traction than any other radial tire I've run in the 15 years I've been wheeling. They do wear a little fast though, it's the price you pay for the traction. I expect to pull about 25K out out of them on the Jeep, so a little less on a heavier rig.

<font color=purple>John pretty much sums up what I know about these - all second hand, so take that for what it's worth. Pretty much everyone I've heard who had them, loved 'em, but didn't get many miles out of them. Depending on how many miles you drive in a year, that may or may not be a concern.</font color=purple>

Re: Yokohama Geolander M/T\'s?

I run 35's on my CJ. They seem to work well on everything except Moab slickrock, or maybe its my Jeep that dosen't work well on Moab slickrock. I have had them for a year, and I really don't have very many miles on them, but it looks like I might only get another year of wheeling on them. I think Moab took a large chunk of tire life. I think the sidewalls are somewhat on the weak side, as I have a minor leak in one of mine. They work great in deep snow and sand, and also seem to work with a lot of horsepower. I am, for the most part, happy with them, but tire wear seems a little exsessive, and I want to try some regular Swampers, 38 inch or larger, when I wear these out.

Thanks, Ray
