SANTA ANA, Calif. — Yokohama Tire Corp. is adding 17 Euro/hard-metric sizes to its Geolandar X-AT extreme all-terrain tire line engineered for pickup trucks, Jeeps and SUVs.
By year-end, the tire will be offered in more than 80 sizes, covering 15- to 22-inch rim diameters, the company announced July 6.
"The Euro/hard-metric sizes allow drivers with a highway all-season tire to upgrade to a more aggressive all-terrain tire with similar load capacity and tire pressure as their OE tire specifications," Drew Dayton, senior product planning manager, consumer tires, said.
Yokohama said the Geolandar X-AT, which features a dual-sidewall design, "is known for offering the ultimate off-road performance without sacrificing any on-road comfort."
The dual-sidewall design allows customers a choice of which look they prefer, Yokohama said. The line-up includes F load-range sizes for heavier carrying capacities.
