Yokohama announced that it will gradually expand marketing of its Geolandar CV G058 around the world, the latest addition to its Geolandar lineup of tires for SUVs and pickup trucks.
The new Geolandar CV G058 is a grand touring tire for crossover SUVs. The new tire is available in 43 sizes, ranging from 265/50R20 107V to 205/70R15 96H.
The Geolandar CV G058 is a successor to the Geolandar SUV unveiled in 2012. Like its predecessor, the Geolandar CV G058 has secured the M+S (mud & snow) designation that indicates excellent performance even during a heavy snowstorm.
The tire’s tread pattern features Yokohama’s proprietary “sipe-based pattern”, which increases edging efficiency. The tread pattern incorporates several YOKOHAMA technologies that improve the tire’s total performance: 2D/3D combination sipes enhance the tire’s resistance to uneven wear while also improving traction on wet and snow-covered roads; the use of four combination grooves further enhances traction while also preventing hydroplaning; and the tread pattern’s five-pitch variation eliminates annoying pattern noise. The use of a new compound based on Yokohama Rubber’s cutting-edge silica technology contributes to stable driving in various road conditions, including roads with low surface temperatures caused by rain or snow. In addition, a newly developed profile achieves a wide and flat contact shape that further improves the tire’s durability and resistance to uneven wear.
