Yokohama Tire Launches New GEOLANDAR A/T XD™


SANTA ANA, CA. – (Mar. 20, 2023) – Yokohama Tire’s newly launched GEOLANDAR A/T XD is a work truck tire engineered for full-size pickup trucks and commercial vans. It is severe snow service-rated and molded for optional studs offering outstanding on- and off-road traction all year round. The A/T XD is initially available in 21 sizes ranging from 16 to 20 inches, with more sizes coming later in the year.


“The A/T XD is a tough, all-terrain tire that was built to take the punishment hard-working trucks and vans encounter every jobsite,” said Drew Dayton, Yokohama’s senior product planning manager, consumer tires.


Benefits of the GEOLANDAR A/T XD include:


-- On/off-road durability is achieved by Yokohama’s GEO-SHIELD® technology, which features a 3-ply sidewall, full nylon cap and high turn-up carcass to assure merciless traction and reliable protection. Plus, the sidewall armor creates a bold, new look and provides protection from lateral impacts.

-- Outstanding all-weather performance is attained by an aggressive tread design that has hundreds of wavy sipes combined with an optimized void-to-lug ratio to provide powerful all-weather traction. Additionally, the A/T XD is severe snow service-rated (3PMSF) and is pinned with pin holes that allows the user to install #15 studs as an option for better winter traction.


-- Long tread life comes from the A/T XD’s wide, flat profile which distributes stresses more evenly across the entire tread area to maximize even wear.

-- Enhanced cut & chip resistance is accomplished via Yokohama’s high-density compound which has a high level of natural rubber to provide long tread life and enhance cut-and-chip resistance.
