Two new tyres for more choice

At the 89th Geneva International Motor Show, Yokohama has been very active. The Japanese tyre manufacturer has presented 2 new tyres for its Geolandar range developed for 4x4s and SUVs. On the one hand, the Geolandar X-MT for off-road enthusiasts, and on the other hand, the Geolandar X-CV for a more traditional on-road use.

New, all terrain Geolandar X-MT

Already available on the American market, the Yokohama Geolandar X-MT will be launched in Europe this spring. Built for SUVs, 4x4s and pickups, the new tyre Yokohama presented at Geneva is designed for use on muddy and rocky terrains. Its “rock concept” design replicates the image of rocks in nature for superior grip, thanks to large blocks on the tread. The Geolandar X-MT is a “hobby” alternative to the Geolandar M/T G003 against which it offers better handling performance on difficult terrains.

The Yokohama Geolandar X-MT will be available in spring 2019 in 6 sizes for 20, 17 and 16-inch rim diameters.

New Geolandar X-CV for the road

With its “CV” for crossover vehicles, the new Yokohama Geolandar X-CV offers an alternative for the latest compact SUVs and more generally, for large monocoque-structure SUVs. Developed mainly for on-road use, the X-CV focuses on high-speed performance and driveability.

The asymmetric tread pattern has 4 straight grooves and a combination of 3D sipes. Associated with a high silica compound, it delivers superior performance in wet conditions, especially for braking.It has also been optimised to deliver enhanced durability and a lower rolling resistance than a similar tyre such as the Yokohama Parada Spec-X PA02.

The Yokohama Geolandar X-CV tyre will be available in spring 2019 in 23 sizes for 18 to 22-inch rim diameters.
