Yokohama Geolandar G055235/55R18*
The Geolandar G055 is Yokohama’s Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season tire developed for the drivers of small- and medium-sized utility vehicles looking to combine year-round traction, handling and comfort with eco-friendly environmental impact. Loaded with Yokohama’s latest technology for the journeys ahead, Geolandar G055 tires are designed to offer responsive handling and long-lasting treadwear in every season, even in light snow.
Yokohama’s BluEarth branding is used to identify ecologically friendly series of tires designed to deliver environmentally, human and socially friendly solutions for drivers and their vehicles. Geolandar G055 tires contribute to vehicle fuel economy by reducing tire rolling resistance* along with the vehicle’s carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.
Geolandar G055 tires feature Yokohama’s premium all-season compound that combines Orange Oil Technology and Silica to enhance wet and wintertime traction with high-tech polymers that resist wear and promote year-round traction. This compound is molded into a symmetric tread design featuring Integrated Shoulders and a continuous center rib to reduce road noise and promote even wear. Transition Grooves and Notch Sipes work together to maintain tread block rigidity to enhance handling and create biting edges to increase traction in wet and wintry conditions. Circumferential Zigzag Grooves channel water through the tread to resist hydroplaning while providing additional edges that promote wintertime traction.
The tire’s internal structure includes twin steel belts reinforced with spirally wrapped nylon to improve highway stability and high-speed durability. Polyester casing plies provide strength and promote ride comfort.
