Planning on a new set of tyres for my landcruiser. Looking at the Yokohama Geolander GO15 A/T (285/70R17)
I would be interested in any good or bad feedback.
Thanks in advance

I cant speak for the geolanders but i have 315 75 r16 toyo open country mt's fitted and it goes hard offroad awesome gravel traction and so far no noise complaints at all even with the pathetic noise deadening of the cruiser only marginally noisier than the bfg k02s previously fitted and the toyos are better on and off road by a long shot
Just my happy experience 15000 kays on

Cheers jet.

Yes, You can punish the Toyo MTs and they just keep hanging in there!

Concur wholeheartedly on the Open Country MT's. Great tyre on and off road.

Cheers

Geo15's are fairly new to the market here, I hope someone can give you a heads up. I'm on my 3rd set of Geo12's in a row - I just keep going back. They do everything perfectly except mud plugging which is to be expected. 15's will most probably be my next set when I am due.

I couldn't see in that review site whether they were referring to the GO12 or the GO15. Even the pic showed no "model" identification on the sidewall (to my eyes, anyway). They are different.

(I have GO12's on a Subaru Forester and couldn't be happier. They have done the Strez, BV and Ood tracks without incident, and their paved road performance is on a par with the Yokie AE-01/-50 in terms of noise and wet grip. I'd get them again if needed, subject to verifying the actual difference between the 12 and the 15.)

Just get them......you have had Yokos before and you like the brand.

I prefer a more aggressive A/T myself, but really, there isn't a bad major brand of tyre out there these days.
