Get the most out of your crossover or SUV by fitting it with the tyres best suited to your usage and driving style from Yokohama's Geolandar range.

09 Jan 2023


SUVs are the most popular type of car today because they offer more practicality compared to a saloon. Many drivers also enjoy driving a car with higher ground clearance because it gives them added confidence behind the wheel.

But not all SUVs are the same. Some are ideal for city driving, while others are high-performance machines that could even go for a few laps around a racetrack. Then there are other models that are designed for off-road use.

Using the right tyre is key. Just as you wouldn't wear leather shoes to play football, you also wouldn't use on-road tyres for driving off-road. You can find the tyre you need from Yokohama's Geolandar lineup, which offers four models that cater to various purposes. Here's how they stack up.

For urban dwellers: Yokohama Geolandar CV G058 and Geolandar X-CV G057

The Geolandar CV G058 is designed mainly for on-road use, which suits the majority of crossover drivers here in Singapore
If you're like most crossover drivers, you do nearly all of your driving in Singapore, which means you're always on paved roads. At most, you perhaps drove up a grassy knoll.

The Geolandar CV G058 is ideal for these drivers. This on-road tyre features a new compound with improved silica dispersion, greatly improving grip while contributing to lower rolling resistance for lower fuel consumption.

Also helping improve grip is the Geolandar CV G058's sipe-based symmetric tread pattern, that has the added benefit of minimising uneven wear. And the round profile for the rib blocks isn't just for looks - it provides wide and flat contact with the road for better mileage and traction.

The Geolandar CV G058 is undaunted in the face of wet conditions as well. With four main grooves as drainage channels, water can be quickly displaced, thereby reducing the risk of aquaplaning. As a bonus, the tyre's five-pitch variation block design decreases noise for a comfier ride.

If you own a crossover with larger standard wheel sizes, but also only drive in Singapore, then the Geolandar X-CV G057 is the tyre to check out. It delivers all the advantages that the Geolandar CV G058 offers, and comes in sizes ranging from 18 inches to 22 inches.

The Geolandar X-CV G057 will also complement drivers who want to make their car look even more dynamic by upgrading to larger wheels and tyres. Head over here to learn more about this tyre.

The Geolandar CV G058, on the other hand, is available in sizes ranging from 15 inches to 20 inches. Click here for more information.

For the long road ahead: Yokohama Geolandar H/T G056

The Geolandar H/T G056 caters to SUV or pickup owners who take their vehicles on unpaved surfaces from time to time
Sometimes, being in the confines of Singapore's urban landscape can start to feel stifling. It makes you yearn not just for the open road, but for a chance to go off the beaten path.

If you intend to take your SUV or pickup for some light off-roading, perhaps across the border in Malaysia, then the Yokohama Geolandar H/T G056 is right for you.

The Geolandar H/T G056 is specifically designed for expressway driving with bouts of light off-roading in between. Its tread design features four main Zigzag Grooves, whose depth increases the tyre's ability to evacuate water. The extra tread also extends the service life.

A tyre must also deliver handling performance, and in this regard, the Geolandar H/T G056 can count on its Adaptive Shoulder Blocks. These have thin ribs that do not penetrate the lug grooves, enhancing shoulder rigidity so that there's less flex during cornering. The stiffer shoulder results in better steering feel, too.

The G056's tread design and Zigzag Grooves help evacuate water, maintain traction, and extend the tyre's service life
The Adaptive Shoulder Blocks are supported by 3D Sipes, which support each other to resist deforming. The result? Better traction.

And when the heavens open, the Geolandar H/T G056 can count on its Multiple Lug Grooves to also help channel water away from the contact patch. In addition, the tyre is engineered to withstand the stresses of hauling, so you can pile your entire family into the SUV with confidence.

The Yokohama Geolandar H/T G056 is available in sizes from 15 inches to 22-inches. Click here for more information.

For the adventurous

If jungle-bashing is your thing, then your SUV will need a tyre like the Geolandar A/T G015
When the open roads aren't enough to satiate your wanderlust, you just need to heed the call of the wild. For this, your SUV needs a tyre like the Yokohama Geolandar A/T G015 to handle your jungle-bashing adventures.
 
One look at this all-terrain tyre and its chunky design tells you that it was meant to tackle sand, mud and everything else in between. Look closer and you'll notice the unique 3-D shaped sipes that form a three-tier pyramid, which suppresses the breakdown of the tread block.
 
To help the tyre dig into slippery surfaces, the lug grooves have been optimised. They are narrower towards the centre of the tyre, and wider towards the grounded edge of the shoulder. With these tyres, you know you'll be better equipped to tackle stuff like loose gravel, rocks, and foliage.

The Geolandar A/T G015 has a robust and aggressive shoulder to held guard against cuts from obstacles such as rocks and branches
And while you're clearing a new path, you won't have to worry much about damage. The tyre's aggressive shoulder design protects it from sidewall cuts and abrasions, while the exclusive compound is resistant to cuts, wear and temperature changes.

What's equally impressive about the Geolandar A/T G015, though, is that it's equally at home being driven on paved roads.

It features four wide grooves designed to quickly displace water, while the new pitch variation aids in eliminating road and tyre noise, making the journey to and from your adventure more comfortable.

The Yokohama Geolandar A/T G015 comes in a wide range of sizes, from 14 inches to 22 inches. Click here to learn more about this tyre.
