Hey, just wanted to get some input on the Yokohama Geolander Mud Terrains, are they a good tire for the street? do they emit a lot of noise?, what tire would you recommend for a primarily street oriented vehicle?. Currently, I am using Toyo Open Country A/T and they are great!!. By the way the vehicle is a stock 2 wheel drive S10 Blazer....a 3" lift may be added soon and 30" tires will follow!!!. Thanks in advance. Late.
I had a set HT series on my Toyota Tundra, great tires!! The truck was my daily driver and it didn't get "off-road", even though it was a 4x4. The MTs are obviously way more aggressive tread. The mud tread, at least in my experience, will start to cup after 7K to 10K miles. I've tried a dozen different brands over the years. The Yokohamas are an excellent choice. Unless you are in a climate where you really need the mud treads, I'd go with a less aggressive tire. The one good thing about the mud design is that it makes your truck look "bad". The BFG A/Ts were probably the best all-around tire I ran on my truck. If you go with muds, I would highly recommend you rotate and cross, and rebalance the tires every 5K to 7K miles. This will help reduce the bad effects of the cupping, which mostly occurs in the front tires.
The muds are usually always more noisy on the highway, and I can't get the same mileage as I do with the A/T tread.
That's just my worthless opinion.
