Yokohama Geolandar A/T-S Anyone have?
 
Time for new tires after 2+ years with my General Grabber HTS tires. They did me well but looking for a tad more aggressive tire. has anyone used the Yokohama geolander a/t-s?

And the time old question. 245-65-17 or 255-65-17? I have stock suspension and the Ronin II wheels.

I was at a toss up between those and the Hankook Dynapro ATM's. I ultimately went with the Hankook because I liked the tread pattern better and the price point was better. You can easily get 265-65-17's on there if you want. Here is a picture of my jeep with 265-65-17s before the lift. No rubbing and the bolt was not an issue at all.

Really 265-65-17 on stock ride height. Are you sure about not rubbing. And what if I'm driving over stuff is it going to rub then?

Ive always been a fan of the Geolander AT-S, running them currently on my sister 5.9 ZJ and ran them on another 95 ZJ.. They wore great and are even better in the snow, great price point to

What exactly are you going to ride over without a lift? I had no issues with small stuff. No rubbing at all when I was on or offroad. You are changing the width by an inch. The height is not that much of a change at all. Perhaps half an inch at most. If you were to go 265-70-17 then there would be rubbing at full lock and a pinch weld would be recommended but not entirely necessary as you shouldn't be going fast at all at full lock.
The only problem that would have arised would have been the tire hitting the bolt, but at 265 the tire still has half an inch and there will be no movement from there. So 255's would be well clear.

Curbs whatever, you never had to drive over something that wasn't paved before? Not saying I do it often but if I need to do it, I certainly want to be able to without any fuss.

I have driven over logs and stumps. No rubbing. Obviously curbs and speed bumps the normal things. No issues with rubbing before the lift. The shop that installed my tires even assured me there would be no issues with rubbing. But regardless 255's there should be no issue at all.

255's it is. Seems like a good compromise between 245 and 265.

255s I'd be cautious about. The 255/70 may not rub with a slight spacer. But the 255/75 will rub bad. The 265/65 will not rub stock-'with the proper back spacing or wheel spacer

I am running the geolanders on my 94 Toyota 4x4 ext cab pickup. They are incredible. Great traction wet/dry although my pickup has the 4 cylinder bullet proof engine that has very weak HP and torque values so I can't spin the wheels at all. I've taken it off road hunting and they've been through greasy bogs and self clean really nicely! :thumbsup:

Got my new tyres mounted on the Jeep. FYI anyone who is thinking about these tyres without a life they do fit but I'm going to be cutting the bolt as there is barley enough room to clear the bolt on the front. Yes, it clears but def needs to be trimmed for a 255 size tyre that has big tread blocks.
