Yokohama Geolandar AT+ II

Anyone had any experience with these? The junk tires I put on in November 05 are just about shot. I didn't know the treadwear rating when I bought them, it just sucks. So therefore I'm going to need new tires come this fall. I've looked at this tire numerous times, but can't decide if it's worth it. I mean the BFG's are only $6 but I'm not sure that I want those simply because everyone else has them. Sure that should mean they're good. But I want to know what everyone thinks about the Yokohama's.

WOW! have yet to see anyone talk about the yokohama Geolanders, which really surprises me. I bought the Geolander AT+II's about 6 mos. ago in the 265/75-16 flavor and love them to death. I have ridden in many rangers of my friends with the BFG's and i much perfer my yoko's. They are really quiet on the road and actually have a fairly aggressive tread when viewed in person. I have had them in mud, snow, sand, and just about anything else you can think of and they have done very well. The mud around here is generally thick and has a large amount of clay in it (slicker than snot) and these tires hold their own in it. In the snow i was really impressed with the way they hooked up. We had a particualarly icy winter this year, and while most people were sliding all over i found it quite easy to keep control and maintain plenty of traction. I highly recommend these tires to anyone looking to stray away from the BFG's and are looking for a great AT tire.

Interesting comment about them being quiet on the road. Mine were so noisy that I took them off and I'm 1/2 deaf. They sounded like the wheel bearings were going out. That was almost a year ago, so maybe they changed the tread design.

Interesting comments. So I really like the looks of them Lone-Ranger on your truck. How many miles have you put on them? Because my fear with tires now is that they will get a vibration after I put like 10k miles on them or so because that's what happened with the crap I have now.

i had a set on my old EDGE. i liked them pretty well. kept balance well, and didnt get noisy till i screwed them up with neg camber wear.
even with accelerated wear on the inside edges they lasted plenty long enough for me to feel i got my moneys worth from then.

slick mud they tend to clog up, but its an AT so thats expected. everything else they handle fine
