With over 100 years of experience in rubber manufacturing, Yokohama Rubber Company Limited is now well-versed with consumer demands and their pain points. Beginning its journey as a joint venture with the BFGoodrich Company in 1917, the Japanese tiremaker has a presence in most tire categories right from ultra-high-performance and all-terrain to winter tires that can be used on passenger cars, SUVs, sedans, CUVs, sports cars, and light trucks. An all-season tire with improved wet performance, the Yokohama Geolandar CV G058 delivers a quiet and comfortable ride and a long-lasting tread that’s ideal for use minivans, crossovers, and midsize SUVs. Boasting advanced tech and rubber compounds, the Geolandar CV G058 promises to be an excellent value for its price. But does it deliver on the promise? Let’s find out in this Yokohama Geolandar CV G058 review.
Features and Benefits
An all-season tire, the Geolandar CV G058 does really well in tackling dry, wet, and light snowy conditions. The best part about these tires is that they can be used year-round in most regions except for the ones which experience moderate to heavy snow. One of the most sought-after Yokohama tires, the Geolandar CV G058 comes with a special CV-2 compound that improves braking and traction by working in tandem with the serrated outer groove. Whether you drive fast or moderate, in dry or wet conditions, the CV-2 rubber compound makes Geolandar CV G058 a true winner.
Additionally, the Geolandar CV G058 provides good winter traction thanks to its combination of hundreds of 2D and 3D sipes that grip the road to help drive sail through slick winter roads without letting you feel nervous. The optimized tread contact patch comes together to provide a comfortable ride and perfect traction and grip by distributing the tread pressure equally and, at the same time, prolonging the service life of the tread.
Unsurprisingly, you get a quiet ride from the Geolandar CV G058 thanks to a multi-pitch tread pattern that insulates and reduces road noise and returns a calm and comfortable ride. The wide and flat contact patch further aids in even wearing of the tread while the round profile of each rib block improves traction in wet and dry conditions.
