Yokohama Geolander MT

I think this will be my next tire, 38 13.50 17 or 40 13.50 17
The 38's are 5.50 lbs lighter than my 37 12.50 17 Hankook MT's and the 40's are around the same 85 lbs. I think I'm gonna like the C load rating as well Yeah........gonna have to move up to 4.88's with those for sure

Re: Yokohama Geolander MT

Have you had many problems running the 37s such as wearing out hubs and steering racks or having problems with the tranny. I have seen many other trucks experience added wear due the move up from 35s to 37s especially once you throw on a long travel kit and increase the droop and bump travel that puts on a lot of stress on the rack.

I am thinking of making the move up to 37s but not sure how well the titans handle them.

Re: Yokohama Geolander MT

Any reason you want to run that big a tire? Even though it is the same or less weight they are gonna have more leverage on the drive train.

Re: Yokohama Geolander MT

The Geolander MT is a very good looking tire, but a word of caution. I bought a set of them for my 99 Ram several years ago. 287/75/16s. They wore down FAST. I did do a lot of gravel driving back then, but I got AT MOST 20k miles out of them. I felt like they should have lasted longer than that.

UHHHH.........HUMMMMMM.......Let me see..........No , no and no.
I guess I got a heavy duty model and I run 1.25" wheel spacer/adapters in front and 3" in the rear I did just go on RockAuto and purchased wheel hub/bearing assemblies, lower ball joints , tie rod ends, and u-joints. I will put them in my on board tool box to have if something fails here in town or out in the desert. But my Titan is running GREAT! with zero problems

Just to try something different Rollin 40's 39.7"
I'm not worried, the unsprung weight is the same

New Tread Compound

* New, longer lasting compound broadens the capability of the tire’s on-road performance while being more resistant to off-road chipping. Broadens on-road performance capability while being more resistant to off-road chipping

Re: Yokohama Geolander MT

If they have drastically improved the tire, I could be interested again. I really like the tread design. Made me feel like I was driving a huge RC truck!
