Re:


I've got these tyres on my newly bought 03 xtrail.The tyres are about 50% worn and they are terribly noisy.
Well i do hope its them and not the tranny or drivetrain LOL.

Also what PSI would you run them at?

I put 32 in them but not sure if thats right.

Re:


These tyres are usually a quiet tyre and the pressure really depends on how you like the ride.
At 40psi the ride will be rough and bumpy but tyres will last forever.
At 28psi the ride will be soft and feel like you are sitting on a lounge chair but tyres will wear more quickly.
32-35psi is about normal where you get the best of both worlds.

Re: Yokohama Geolander AT/S Mileage and Fuel Economy


Currently running my YOK G012s at 40psi as advised by Bob Jane T-Mart for longer life.
Not feeling much of a hard or bumpy ride and the missus hasn't complained.

May try 30 - 35psi to see if I feel any significant ride improvement but 40psi on the blacktop appears OK.

cheers

Re: Yokohama Geolander AT/S Mileage and Fuel Economy


I've tried all different pressures but have settled on the recommended 33psi front and 30 psi rear because the car works the best at those pressures. This is for around town with just me or one passenger. I find these pressures are the "Sweet Spot" where all harshness disappears. I've put it down to computer tuning of resonances when it was designed.

Loaded on trips on bitumen I go up to 36psi (cold) all round.

When I'm on long distance tracks (Oodnadatta etc) and/or corrugated roads its down to 30psi and I sit on no more than 80km/h (usually no less either).

On gnarley tracks its down to 22 or 24psi to avoid tyre damage on rocks and to actually get through sand.

Haven't needed to go less than this even on sand.

You need to look at the Length of the contact patch front and rear. Unloaded and at 40psi it's so short as to put excess wearing stress on the few blocks in road contact.

My mileage is great usually - around 9-10L/100kms under 105km/h; any faster forget it due to less than ideal aerodynamics of the boxy shape.

I NEVER believe what tyre places say - they want your tyres to last as short as possible.

well today I will reduce front to 33psi and rear to 30psi as per original Dunlop tyres that came with vehicle and as per the info on tye pressure placard on vehicle.

Will give it a go for a period and see if I notice any ride and handling ndifference.

Remember - those pressures are when the tires are cold ie measure at home in morning before driving or at least within say 2kms.

Re:


Thanks Dlpeek! Was about to ask if anyone has had puncture probs with Geolander AT/S. Was unaware of Road Hazard protection. Will check if can get replacement. (Just checked with Yokahama and say no! as tyre was not purchased from their specified dealers). Have had Yoko tyre from first set, rip in sidewall after hitting sharp gutter (understandable) so purchased another 2 tyres, but another gutter encounter resulted in a small hole in sidewall. Tyre only about 9mths and 20K old. No sidewall punctures with either original Toyos or Goodyear RV, but in saying that, the car was not driven by teenagers with those tyres. Was considering changing to a tyre with better side wall protection, is there one?

Also, I run them at about 36psi but find them noisy to the point that I had the mechanic check if it was wheel bearings as it was so obvious.

Changed original Toyos to Goodyear Eagle RV, great tyre, I think stickier than the Toyos or Yokos, but wear of about 40-50K. Was hoping to do some 4WD so went for the Yokos. Looks like the Yokos will go to 80K+ as the two tyres from first set seem bit over half worn at 50K.

Re: Yokohama Geolander AT/S Mileage and Fuel Economy


Guy's I've been running my 215 65 r16 on my T31 for 5000km now and have come to the following conclusion. I found 40psi in the tyres was just to harsh on winding highway. So i dropped down to 36psi and found the similar feel once the tyres had warmed up. Measuring the pressure after an hour of driving at 100kmh I found they were sitting at 42psi. I have now dropped the pressure down to the template standards on the car and find the ride far more comfortable. The warm tyre pressure also sits at around 35psi.
While i have found the tyres to be a remarkable improvement on the OME bridgstones I have found that they wallow more in tight corners and the gears need to be used more to keep up to speed on hills etc....
Milage is at 8.6 highway and 10 around town..

Re: Yokohama Geolander


Geos came fitted to the Pajeros at work. They wore out far too quickly for my liking (about 30,000km) We ran Bridgestone 694's next & got 55-65,000km out of them drivng the same roads. So from my experience, I'd never fit the Geolander to my own vehicle as they're too soft and aren't any better thant the 694 off road.
