The Geolandar H/T G056 is Yokohama's newest highway terrain tyre developed for drivers of four-wheel drives and SUVs who spend limited time off-road and are looking for a quiet, comfortable ride with long tread life. Featuring a multi combination tyre compound, including Yokohama's patented Orange Oil technology, to enhance wet traction, provide better fuel efficiency and improve tread life by up to 21%* compared to the previous model, the Geolandar HT/S G051, that it replaces.
The load rating (represented by the numerical value) is related to the maximum weight that tyre can carry. So in this case 105 would refer to a load capacity of 925kg, with most passenger vehicle load indexes range from 62 to 126.
In all instances the tyres load index must meet or exceed the value displayed on the vehicles placard.
The speed category symbol, for example 'S', indicates the maximum speed at which the tyre can carry a load corresponding to its load index. So in this case, 'S' would refer to a maximum speed of 180km/hour.
