Ikuo hanawa

Great success for YOKOHAMA and Japanese off-road star Ikuo Hanawa. Last Saturday, March 12, 2022, it finished the traditional US off-road race "Mint 400" through the US state of Nevada in second place in class 7 for near-series pick-ups. Hanawa's Toyota Hilux was not only branded with the lettering and the company colors of the Japanese tire manufacturer, but was also equipped with the GEOLANDAR M/T tire in size LT285/75R17. The 400-mile race (around 644 kilometers) is one of the oldest off-road events in America and covers around 644 grueling kilometers through open desert terrain near the gambling metropolis of Las Vegas.

Yokohama Geolandar tires

YOKOHAMA repeatedly demonstrates its off-road skills by equipping various teams in races around the world. At the "Mint 400" a total of ten starters in four classes put their trust in different GEOLANDAR tires from YOKOHAMA. They have proven their superior off-road performance in many races over the years. The GEOLANDAR M/T G003, for example, offers sufficient reserves for almost any terrain scenario - whether on mud, rocks, loose dirt or gravel. Its profile consists of an extensive arrangement of blocks and successive sipes and has high "self-cleaning" powers. This setup helps the tire to achieve optimal traction on any surface. With its reinforced GEO-SHIELDTM sidewall, which uses a triple polymer mixture, and the special block design on the top, the GEOLANDAR M/T G003 is also optimally protected against cuts and material wear is also minimized.

GEOLANDAR is a global tire brand of YOKOHAMA. It was specially developed for SUVs and pickups to meet the ever-increasing demands of the market. Under the tire manufacturer's current medium-term management plan, the consumer tire business aims to maximize the sales rates of YOKOHAMA's value-added tires. This applies to the global flagship brand ADVAN as well as the tire brand GEOLANDAR. One of the key initiatives being implemented as part of this strategy is the even greater placement of ADVAN and GEOLANDAR tires as original equipment on new vehicles.
