The Geo-Trac TI-500 Radial XLT features an all-season tread design and optional load ratings of C, D and E for
drivers of all types of SUV's, pickups and crossovers. Manufactured by Nankang, the Geo-Trac line of tires are
built to provide good performance at a lower price.
An all-season tread compound and non-directional tread pattern feature large shoulder blocks with deeper grooves
for increased handling and grip on dry or wet road surfaces. They also enhance steering response and provide added
feel in all driving conditions.
Four circumferential grooves evacuate water from under the footprint and reduce the risk of hydroplaning when
the roads turn wet. Multiple sipes provide biting edges for further grip on wet or light snow covered pavement. A
multi-variant tread block design lowers road noise and increases ride quality.
Inside the tire you will find steel belted construction for added strength and durability throughout the speed
range. This also promotes more even tread wear. Geo-Trac includes both LT and P-Metric sizes on the TI-500, as well
as speed ratings up to an S. There is also a 40,000 mile tread guarantee as well.
Good all-around traction on dry, wet and light snow covered road surfaces
Comfortable ride and low road noise
Tread life could be a bit longer
The TI-500 drives very well on dry or wet pavement. Steering is responsive and crisp for an SUV tire and
provides good feel. The ride is comfortable for a highway tire, and road noise is minimal. We would like to see a
longer treadlife, but to be fair the life of this tire is long enough to make it a solid value. If you need to haul
heavier loads you have optional load ranges to choose from.
Overall, this tire provides more than adequate performance and is a good choice for drivers looking to save a
little extra money as well.
