I´ve bought a set of Yoko 055 for my Qashqai 1.6 dci; generally the tyres are not bad but in case of wet road... only some longitudinaL grip, but the side grip is NONE.
Forget this tyres if you drive on wet roads!!
And I know what I'm saying; I was for almost 15 years rally and mountain races driver.
I drove Yokos in rally some years ago and were good; I've Geolandars G012 and G 015 at my Terrano II and are good.
I simply don't understand how Yoko made these tyres...
These 055 are very, very hard (71 in my durometer); and I can say that the G015 has only 63 at the same durometer.
I'll change them at the winter, because these tyres will resist a lot of Km/Miles, so are so hard...

Latest Yokohama Geolandar G055 Blue Earth Reviews

Given 49% while driving a Renault Kadjar, Dynamic S Nav 4WD (215/60 R17 H) on mostly country roads for 3,121 spirited miles
these tyres are dangerous on wet roads, try and take a roundabout at anything over 10 mph and they will suddenly
just let go,
on dry the grip is adequate with some drift on corners
road noise is fairly loud and intrusive,
tyre wear is about normal to good.

Given 81% while driving a Toyota Harrier (235/55 R18) on a combination of roads for 25,000 easy going miles
A very good tyre all around. Quiet & comfort its main strength. Dry Grip & wet performance is good too. Lasted 45k km before it gets real noisy. The only thing holding me back from buying again is its higher price.

Given 56% while driving a Subaru forester 2.5xt (215/55 R17) on for 0 miles
I bought geolandar SUV (G055) on 7/2015 for my MY 2006 Subaru forester xt ( 230 ps) with the expectation to be the closest equivalent to factory fitted GEOLANDARS.
The absolut dissapointment...
Fyi the country used is Greece. 70% road usage, 15% snow usage for skiing and 15% semi off road for hunting or vacations. To make the long story short.
Cornering and braking in wet road is simply impossible. Snow behavior was simply ok , noise level was quite noticeable especially at speeds above 120 kph. The only remarkable point with these is the extreme duration they present. After 70k klm in 2 years they seem to have life for 15-20k klm more... But No thanks ... time to try Crossclimates +

Best regards

Given 90% while driving a Toyota Venza USA (245/55 R19 V) on a combination of roads for 100 average miles
I was doing my research on the next on what to buy for my next tires for my midsize crossover SUV. The original set come with Toyo Open Country A20 and it wasn't bad at all. Most people recommended Perilli and Continental but price tag is nearly $300 for each so I go for my good old Yokohama. I did some research and I found out about Blue Earth and Orange oil. I didn't wait any longer to seal the deal $216 each and plus $10 each for my old tires.

Ok here is my honest opinion about the GO55 Blue Earth.

Comfort: 5 Stars. Very smooth on Highway surface and 50% less feel on Bad surface "very elastic".

Grip: 4 Stars. Very nice grip but doesn't really to control to my satisfaction from beautiful surface to small rock dirt road.

Wear: 5 Stars. After more than 100 miles from changed of the tires I don't see any significant change of wear and tear.

Buy again I can't really tell because the next 3 years might come up with a different technology worth the try.

I am highly recommended for this Yokohama GO55 Blue Earth for those who are looking for Durability, Technology, Economy, and Comfort.

For my negative though Traction Test is B.

Ha these tyres for over a year on a Honda crv, check pressures every 2 weeks, no leaks at all. Driven over 13,000 miles on sealed roads and pot holed services. Still have 7 mil on each tyre.

Extremely quite and balanced

KIA SPORTAGE 2.0l diesel 17000kms LHR worn to wear bar,RHR worn to within 3 mm of wear bar and fronts worn greater than 50%. Full steering and wheel alignment done at time of fitting. Current alignment has been checked up against 1 new vehicle and I vehicle with 42000kms and all three vehicles are within KIA specs. Driven on sealed roads 95% of the time , set at 36psi as recommended did get 32000kms on original Hankooks ( 85% worn ) but erred on the side of safety ,long trip summer conditions. Very, very disappointing and expensive orange peel don't work promo material ficticious.

Great tyre. Removed Dunlop. Instantly mpg increased by approx 2 mpg. Much less under steer. Noise in the cabin is greatly reduced and with improved rolling resistance. Only thing is the ride feels a little still compared to previous tyres.

Only had these on the front a week. Cant tell you about how they wear. Noise level and comfort is really good. Easy to bed in. Rolling resistance is better than expected. Fuel efficiency is also looking good.
I'll report back when I get more miles on them.
