Very slightly straying from the original topic, but does anybody have input on these GO15's in 225/65/17 fitting on a 2011?

I was all set to get the AT/S, but then realized the GO15's are the updated version of that tire. Unfortunately, it looks like it isn't offered in 225/60/17 like the AT/S.

So does that mean that that we no longer have an AT tire in the stock 17" size?

I've tried talking to the folks at Yokohama about this a few times, but all they will say is that there will be new tire sizes announced for the GO15 but cannot say what those sizes will be. That announcement is supposed to be sometime in 2016. I waited as long as I could since around here snow can come at any time, but flinched and decided to just go with the AT/S tires as my OEM's were totally shot.

It could be that there is still a warehouse full of 225/17-60 AT/S's that they want to get rid of before announcing a same-sized GO15.

Will keep fingers crossed then. Don't think you'll be disappointed in your at/s tires though, mine are doing well on and off road and are wearing well. Can't speak to snow yet though as a last year was a bit disappointing in nm

Any ideas about this? I've seen the 225/60/17 be a close fit, so I have a feeling the 65's will not work.

I don't have a 2011 to test on, but if the 225/60/17 (which is 27.6" diameter) is close, then the 225/65/17 (which is 28.5" diameter) will probably not fit. Compared to the stock 225/55/17, That's an extra 0.85" of tire clearance needed.

Snow and Ice?

5000 miles on my Geolandars now...still super happy with them.

Since they were only introduced in April this year has anyone had any experience with snow and ice so far?

They are rated for winter (mountain and snowflake logo) just wondering if they are any good.

Thanks in advance.

I think I've got about 8k on mine since June. No snow yet, not even a really hard rain. We will be getting some snow in the next few weeks, so I will be able to see how these do.
This was part of the reason I got them though, so hopefully they live up to the snowflake logo.

That's what I figured.

I'd be surprised if the new version is significantly better than the old anyways. I already have a set of dedicated winters, so I'm really just looking for something a bit more aggressive than stocks for the other 8 months of the year. Not doing any true off-roading, but I there have been quite a few times when an AT tire would have added some piece of mind.

Well, I was pretty unimpressed with these today in the snow. We got a couple inches, but it was wet, slushy stuff, and it froze over pretty quick after it got dark. It didn't take much throttle to get the tires to break loose, and did not inspire confidence when turning and braking. My wife has the BFG KO2s on her new Wrangler, and she said they did pretty well, but there was still a few places they slid... so I am not 100% sure these tires were at fault. I'll update a little more with the next snowfall to see if it is the same story.

GeoJosh - What lift did you use? I'm thinking of going to 235/60/18 and using one of Primitive's lift kits to stop the rub, but not sure whether to choose their 1.1" or 1.6" solution. What do you think?

I'll post this in the other thread too in case anyone there knows which would be best.

@vt_maverick - I used a 1.5" front, 1.75" rear lift from @Anderson Design & Fab

Highly recommended.

Thanks! So are there advantages/disadvantages to a spacer lift (ADF) vs. a spring lift (Primitive)? Sorry if that's top far off topic.

@vt_maverick - spacer lifts are usually less expensive and easier to install. They also keep the stock suspension feel while lift springs are typically a hard ride and the springs reduce suspension travel.

Hey!

I have a 17' Forester with 225/60/17 and no lift. I prefer the G015 due to 012 because of the winter certification but they are only in 225/65/17. Someone know if they will fit? Anyone tried it? I think it will be a nice change because you gain some height but I don't know if the will cause any trouble or any damage. I don't know much of tires, suspensions, diffs...

Thanks!
