The next generation tire from Yokohama Tire Corporation’s (YTC), the GEOLANDAR H/T G056, is now officially on sale.

The GEOLANDAR H/T G056 is the latest product to sport the tiremaker’s advanced technology featuring an innovative compound that provides longer treadlife and all-season traction. It is available in 38 sizes and in 15-20 inch in both P-metric and LT-metric offerings, fitting a variety of today’s most popular light trucks and SUVs.

“Thanks to its completely new design, which includes Yokohama’s own orange oil compound technology, the GEOLANDAR H/T G056 is made to stay on the road thousands of miles longer and provide exceptional all-weather handling,” said Andrew Briggs, Yokohama director, marketing and product planning. “It outlasts conventional highway terrain tires without sacrificing its all-season capabilities.”

The GEOLANDAR H/T G056 features a 70,000-mile limited treadwear warranty on P-metric sizes and 50,000 miles on LT-metric sizes.

Other highlights of the GEOLANDAR H/T G056 include:

-- Triple 3D sipes that help stabilize tread blocks to minimize uneven wear and provide biting edges for enhanced traction throughout the life of the tire.  

-- Multi-angle grooves and zigzag circumferential grooves that work in tandem to provide improved handling in wet and wintry conditions.

-- An optimized contact patch that contributes to better mileage by equalizing pressure distribution where the tread contacts the road for long, even wear.

--Adaptive shoulder blocks form a continuous outer rib that reduces noise throughout the life of the tire.
