Features:

The Yokohama G012 A/T-S tyres are tough terrain tyres that offer the best performance on road and off road too. These tyres are part of Yokohama Tyres’ Geolandar range of tyres suitable for 4x4s and SUVs that are used as rough and tough workhorses. Yokohama Tyres , of course has a wide range of tyres covering all types of vehicles. For instance, for high powered, luxury SUVs, one of the best tyre options are the Yokohama Advan V802 tyres that guarantee maximum performance with high speed capability.

Maximum driving control: The Yokohama G012 A/T-S tyres are equipped with an advanced and well though-out tread pattern that maximises traction on road, while ensuring maximum control in off road driving conditions. The tread profile comprises large wide sculpted tread blocks on the outer tyre shoulder that maximise handling on dry surface. The intermediate blocks exhibit a rounded edge, while the blocks in the central portion of the tread are staggered. All these tread elements in combination with the silica intensive tread compound come together and create a sense of enhanced driving control that maximises the pleasure of the drive both on road and off road.
Reduced tyre noise: 4x4s can create deafening tyre noise. The Yokohama G012 A/T-S tyres guard against this by arranging the intermediate tread blocks in a 5 pitch variation pattern. This pattern creates noise of opposing frequencies that cancel each other out. Thus tyre noise generated is minimal.
Extended tyre life:  Traversing tough terrain, the Yokohama G012 A/T-S tyres are exposed to potential tread damaging conditions continuously. However, strong sidewall protectors protect the tread from cuts and abrasions, increasing the tyre life. Additionally, the intermediate tread blocks feature pyramid shaped zig-zag 3D sipes, which confer extra rigidity to the tread. So there is less block deformation under stress, reducing the chances of irregular tread wear. Uniform tread wear, obviously increases tyre life.
Exceptional off road traction: In between the tread blocks of the Yokohama G012 A/T-S tyres are present unique ‘multi-step’ grooves, which are responsible for the tyres’ superb off road traction. These grooves effectively clear away the mud and dirt from the tread and offer superb comfort and control on off road surfaces.
