Geolandar X-AT?

Post by Chubbs » Wed Oct 30, 2019 2:11 am

I just turned 24K on my 2018 and the Duratracs are shot. I will likely go with 35s for the replacement. I am strongly considering the Yokohama Geolandar X-AT, but there are no real reviews yet. I have never owned Yokohamas before

The other options are the ever popular Open Country (probably RT), the Ridge Grapplers, and the KO2s. I was pretty happy with KO and KO2s on a previous 1/2 ton, but I know they get mixed reviews on heavier trucks.

I'm off-road a lot. Mainly rock and sand as I live in the Mojave. During the winter I am in a lot of snow in the Eastern Sierras. Mt Snowflake is desired but not required. Actual snow performance, however, is a requirement. I am assuming chains can still be run on the rear with 35s. If anyone can confirm, I would appreciate it.

I have been towing more and more lately, but it is in the 6K lb range, so not very heavy. That weight may go up if we get a travel trailer.

Thanks in advance for the help.

I was thinking of going with Toyo OC CTs, not only M&S rated, but 3-peak rated for severe snow service (reviews vary on this rating). I spend most of time on hardball and pavement; no aggressive off road. Reviews are mixed on CT, but what the hell. Tire preference is very subjective. Truck will likely ride like a log wagon, not that It doesn't now. Thuren recommends Toyo or Nitto for these pigs and I would have to assume he's got some experience in what tire pairs best with the truck. I'm still on the Duratracs and they have plenty of tread life as I don't drive it much.

Got about 6k on my X-MT’s and really like them.

Alright, I'm torn between the Toyo AT2 and the Geolandar X-ATs. No one has any feedback on the X-ATs yet. I need to make my final decision soon. I can get them done in town for virtually the same price.

We have already had a 2 decent snows this year. I'm counting on a lot this winter in the mountains. The OC RTs do not have a great wet pavement reputation. That took those out of the running.

I'm leaning toward the X-ATs. Thoughts?

The AT2’s don’t have a great reputation. I think you can do a lot better. I’ve heard solid feedback on the Hankook Dynapro MT in snow and ice. You can also sipe your tires but snow use tires by design are best

I pulled the trigger on the X-ATs. I guess I am the guinea pig for these tires, because there just isn't any feedback yet. 35x12.5x17s. The spare fit with very little wiggling (although I only have 20psi in it). Tire shop said I would never get it in there after they made one cursory try.

I'll have them off-road this weekend. Things are uncharacteristically wet here in the Mojave, so I will get to see how they deal with wet sand, wet rocks, and liquid adobe. We will likely be up at Mammoth next weekend, so I can give my impressions of how they deal with snow. I think I have chains that fit. I need to make sure.

Keep us posted. Some friends LOVE Hokemamas but they have lighter vehicles.
As far as KO2s, I bought one brand new 37"(load range D) to go with 3 used ones and at 10,000 miles it's showing some significant wear with only light towing. Not sure if it would have had a long life if I stuck with them.

They have a 45K mile warranty, so we will see if that means anything. The last time I tried to warranty a tire (Goodyear), the pro-rate on it was less than my drive out of town to get it resolved was worth.

I did play a little bit in the Sierras today. All light duty trails and one water crossing. They seem to be comfortable tires. Same level of noise as the Duratracs, but maybe a slightly lower frequency.

Those look like pretty nice tires. I would like to hear what you find out. Keep us posted with your feedback!

Forget what I said about noise level. At highway speeds these are definitely quieter than the Duratracs. I wonder how they will sound after 10K.

I cut a load of firewood yesterday. I went through an area of soft sand that historically requires 4wd. I went through in 2wd just fine. Everything is wetter this year, so I don't think it's an exact comparison of traction.

Pic is from the edge of the Sierras on Saturday. They are good looking tires.

Hi, what are your thoughts on the tires after 6ish months?

Any rubbing at all with the stock wheels?

Different dude, but, I’ve had my Yokohama 35s for 6 months. I like em. No weird wear that I see. Did fine off road ( New England). Quiet on road at highway speeds too. I’d get them again.
