My brother and girlfriend have these tires are they work great. Awsome in snow and have great life.

For the price they are hard to beat.

I had them on my Dodge, and I absolutely loved them. They did awesome in the snow, and did great off road. I highly suggest them to anybody looking for a good tire. I'll be getting a set for my Chevy.

the Yokohama Geolandar AT's don't have an aggressive look.excellent performance and handling on and off road is better than "looking" agressive. if you want an aggressive look, go for the yokohama Geolandar MT's

They look like an A/T, lol. If you want real agressive youre going to have to get a M/T.

They are good tires at a good price.

yeah not super aggressive, i ran a set of Nokian Vatiiva AT's which are similar to the yokohama's... i went back to the tire shop a few weeks later and got BFG AT's simply because i thought they "looked better".... long story short my BFG's are up for sale and im looking at another set of Nokians or Revo's..

The Yoko's will perform very well on road and off, while some AT's wont give you the treadwear you expect, slightly worse gas mileage, more road noise etc....

If you just want looks buy something knobby like the BFG's or some Mud tires...

otherwise go for the yoko's id say
