Hi

Can someone tell me if these are directional tires?

I want to purchase 5 so I can rotate in my spare so I do have an issue with the AWD system and the spare having new tread and the other 4 being worn.

Also, is it really 1/4" in circumference for the AWD system

By the looks of the tread pattern, Id say no they are not directional . These are whats going on mine when the OEM Yokohama's are finally worn out, probably next winter.

what size were you going to go with, Im probably going to use the 215/60-17

I'm curious to hear about this as I was planning on purchasing these for my next set of tires in about 5,000 miles.
Wondering what folks think about these tires. They are rated far better than the H/T 's which are total crap.

I have a set right now! They are not directional so outlaw they'll work for you.

P.s. I'll be selling my set mounted on X steels with about 5k on them as soon as my new wheels show up if anyone's interested.

No problem. I highly recommend them. They've performed great in dry (a little road noise). Very well in serious rain. Haven't had a chance in snow yet but I hear good things.

Hey SO,
I had Yok Geo AT 2's on my toyota, they are not exactly the same but an older Geolander all-terrain model:


the AT-S look similair and are the 'evolved' version, they were really great tires, I wish they were available for the foz (215/70-16 is the closest..)
I ran them through the winter and summer all over BC and lots of highway as well.. when I was done (after 3yrs~80K) they went onto my Dads Ford for holiday duties..
