Yokohama Geolandar A/T G015 Review
Yokohama’s Geolandar A/T G015 is one of the top all-terrain tires on the market, delivering impressive long life off-road and on-road too.
- Long life
- Impressive off-road performance
- Built for trucks that do real work too
- Massive selection of sizes
- Certified for true winter use
- A bit pricey
Built using a unique tread compound to last up to 60,000 miles on-road (50,000 miles for LT tires), that same compound also withstands off-road punishment impressively. The unique pattern between the tread blocks is designed to help the tire shed dirt and mud.
Looking at the sidewall of the tread, it’s wrapped in a protective extra layer to help prevent getting slashed by sharp rocks. Plus, a layer of nylon inside the tire provides an extra layer of protection.
One of the reasons the G015 is so popular is that it’s built for everything a truck can throw at it. The tire casing is designed to handle heavy loads (for those who carry a lot of weight or tow with their truck).
Off-road grip with the A/T G015 is seriously impressive. And that’s true no matter what the season. The design of the tread blocks means there’s lot of extra edges to bite into the snow in the winter, plus there are plenty of sipes within each tread block. It’s no surprise then that this tire wears the three-peak mountain snowflake symbol, indicating that is is a true winter-capable tire.
On-road this tire is quieter than you’d expect for an all-terrain tire, which is refreshing. It also offers stand-out wet-weather performance, both in terms of handling capability and stopping.
Overall, the Geolandar A/T G015 is impressive in every area. It grips on-road and off, no matter the conditions or weather. It’s built to last and comes with a warranty to back it up. It’s a pretty much flawless all-terrain tire and it comes in such an incredibly extensive selection of sizes, almost anyone can enjoy it.
Surprisingly, for such an amazing quality tire the Geolandar A/T G015 also makes our list of the cheapest off-road tires you can buy. See that list here.

Noise we can deal with, but the high level of wet grip in these tires is an extra safety feature we appreciate.

Yokohama Geolandar AT G015 vs X-AT
To split the difference between an all-terrain tire and a more extreme mud-terrain tire, Yokohama brought the X-AT to market, offering a more capable and more aggressive-looking tire, while sill maintaining plenty of on-road civility. While the AT G-15 makes use of a conventional five-row tread pattern for more nimble handling, better highway ride and superior wet-weather performance, the X-AT’s four-row section or larger tread blocks and more void space makes for more off-road grip without completely ruining on-road civility.

Lastly, the X-AT comes with a 45,000 mile tread life warranty, while the AT G015 comes with either a 60,000 mile or 50,000 mile (LT) offering.
