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.

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

light snow covered pavement. A multi-variant tread block design lowers road noise and increases ride
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

Good all-around traction on dry, wet and light snow covered road
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.
