Great to hear a first hand experience on Xylo itself. Do you also take the vehicle out to offroads which can be tackled by 2WD? Just to understand the driving terrain.

Yeah Jacs.. Offroad, all roads... Just back from a Bangalore Arunachal Bangalore with all sorts of road conditions. Good to bad and worse, slippery.. I do limited offroading primarily to reach a great location

Thank you for all the inputs, got Yokohama Geolandar AT/S - Stock size 215/75 R15 on Xylo last Saturday.
  • Its actually White letters on one side and being a bi-directional tyre, one can choose between white letters or just standard black all. I chose White fonts for now.
  • Price as quoted earlier, INR5900 a piece.
  • I normally inflate 35psi on front and 38psi on rear. Asked dealer to inflate 1 point extra based on the side wall strength caution read across the blogs.
  • Had run<100KMs only till now. Felt the car bit more bumpy compared to Michelins and noticed a small drop in fuel efficiency as per MID. Not surprising as I changed from almost bald tyres.

Yokohama has recently launched the upgraded version Geolander A/T G015.

Has anybody tried these new tires? Is it available for New Ford Endeavour with size 265/60R18? Yokohama website doesn't mention about the sizes available in India.

Hi all, does anyone know if the Yoko G012s AT-S are now available for size 235/65/17? Its the odd XUV size that sadly has very few AT tyres available. Until 2 years ago they were not even listed but I have heard these are available in the XUV's size now. Any help would be appreciated..Tx

Update: I bought the new G015 series 265/60R18 tires for my Ford Endeavour 3.2 a week back and costed 14,900 each. Moving from MRF Wanderers, there is a huge difference in the ride quality. Its so much more planted in higher speeds and a lot more comfortable. High speed cornering though not bad but isn't great either, may be because of soft side walls.

Odd question: I have a Subaru Forester which I have recently restored, I got too carried away by the charm of an SUV, and went for Yokohama Geolandar G015 AT tyres. They are definitely very good tyres in their own right but now I miss the traction levels of a good soft compound tyre on smooth roads which Hyderabad has plenty of
How long should I expect these tyres to last before I can replace them in good conscience? Car weighs in at around 1350 kilos and employs permanent AWD.

How are your tyres holding up? I am thinking of replacing stock tyres with Geolanders in my Fortuner which has the same size as yours in Endeavour.

I have done 65,000 kms so far and good to do another at least 10,000 kms. I'll be replacing with a new set of Geolanders post that. Highly recommended.

Looks like the Geolandar AT/S G015 is as good as the G012. Sidewall is still a weak point

Here's a 2 year old tyre that has done a little more than 20k:
