Yokohama Geolandar H/T G056 Tire Review & Rating

Built to replace the aging HT-S, the new Yokohama Geolandar H/T G056 is a completely new design that features orange oil tread technology, enhanced ride comfort and a longer tread life. Designed for drivers of pickups, SUV’s and crossovers, the G056 is for highway use and not off the beaten path.

Yokohama’s orange oil technology and added micro silica in the tread compound combine with a symmetric tread pattern to deliver increased dry and wet traction in a wide range of temperatures. (Orange oil helps in keeping the tread more pliable in colder temps.)

Yokohama Geolandar HT G056 Review

There’s also triple 3-D sipes, multi-angled grooves and zig-zag circumferential grooves around the tread that further increase the grip on wet pavement, and help with traction on snow and ice as well. That said, ice traction and braking is not a real strength for this model.

An area that is a big strength for this tire is its treadlife, which is constantly mentioned by other drivers in reviews. Yokohama has added what they call adaptive shoulder blocks that form continuous outer ribs. The results of this are improved treadwear and lower road noise. An optimized contact patch also provide better tread wear and more miles from the tread.

Another area that the engineers from Yokohama concentrated on is ride comfort. Two polyester casing plies help in that regard. There are currently 38 sizes available that range from 15-20 inches, and the tire is backed by up to a 70K mile warranty.

Pros 

  • Excellent traction with an emphasis on wet grip
  • Comfortable ride and very quiet
  • Long lasting treadlife
  • Value for the money

Cons

  • Ice braking/acceleration

Overall Thoughts

The new Yokohama G056 is a massive improvement over the original HT-S in almost every aspect. In addition, we feel it is also a better performing tire than the G051 as well.

Wet traction is exceptional for a tire in this category. It holds the road surface securely and doesn’t hydroplane like the older model. We also like what Yokohama has done with extending the treadlife. At this stage it’s right among the best for a longer lasting lifespan. Finally, ride comfort is outstanding and ranks right up there with the Michelin Defender LTX M/S.

The only real issue we see is with braking and acceleration on ice. Of course this is a problem with most any all-season tire.

Overall, there are a number of outstanding tires in the truck and SUV all-season highway category, and this new G056 deserves its place right up there with any of them. Highly recommended.
