Yokahama announced that its “Geolandar CV G058”, a grand touring tire for crossover SUVs, was among the winners of the Chicago Athenaeum’s 2020 Good Design Awards announced this past December 27.
The award-winning tire is part of Yokohama’s Geolandar brand of tires for SUVs and pickup trucks.
The “Geolandar CV G058” is a grand touring tire that delivers comfortable rides on long-distance drives as well as on city roads. In addition to basic performance features of a highway terrain tire, such as safety and noise reduction, the tire’s design contributes to its excellent wear resistance and fuel efficiency. In addition, the “GEOLANDAR CV G058” has secured the M+S (mud & snow) designation that indicates its reliable performance in a sudden snowfall.
Yokohama Rubber is actively introducing tires, like its Geolandar line, that combine high performance with distinctive eye-catching designs.
