I'm thinking about doing some Yokohama Geolander A/Ts on the wife's 2019 Terrain. Anyone have any pictures of an aggressive tread on their newer body Terrain? I'd love to see some pictures!

Haven't seen any pics, but I think its a good idea However there isnt much space to the top of the spring perch up front. Therefore you could also go A/T style tire, but prob couldn't go much taller.

Do whatever makes you happy, but unless you have the AWD Terrain and have to deal with winter conditions know that you will sacrifice mpg's and have to deal with more road noise with A/T tires.

Doing this will add to your other complaint about inadequate power.

We do have the AWD and living in KC, we can get some pretty brutal winters. Ice more than snow, but this year reminded me of the 90's when we used to get a lot of snow. We would definitely put them to good use. The height is what concerns me with the tires. I'm going to have to do some digging and see what I can find out there in a good size that will work.

This is a very good point. The overall dimension of the tires I'm looking at aren't going to be much of a difference over stock however. So hopefully this turd wont be an even slower turd...

They will probably be heavier, and more rolling resistance, both detract from acceleration.

well, those definitely are aggressive looking.
If you live in an area where you need them... then you need them. No question about it.





Ive done the 'offroad' thing with the Traverse.

Though, to me- in Los Angeles... those would probably be too noisy. But its all paved here and no snow etc.
But-


Ive driven in some parts south of the border- where my Traverse (with the same tire line/tread as our Equinox)- did ok.

Yeah, you could hear the wheel spin when going uphill on rocky trails or soft sand, but we were only there for 2 weeks- and I could live with that wheelslip performance for 2 weeks. I also didnt cross any small streams- wet or dry.


But the year round vehicle... soon after its arrival got an upgrade in tires, shocks, mud flaps.

The tires it originally had where worse than the Traverse. As it too had been a city vehicle.



Traverse and Equinox -great for city... but slipping on some off road trails.









Yeah- these were not good at all.
Putting on wider flaps- rainy season- mud splatter. Shined up the center caps with brasso





We then felt better performance with these guys.
We drive through small streams etc.

rbarrios, please clarify for the rest of us the relevance of that red vehicle in your post, it sure as **** ain't a chevy or gmc, I see a Honda centercap on a wheel in one picture, what gives?

The Traverse and Honda were decent on the regular tires. They got us around. We had to avoid bigger holes etc. Going up rocky trails- both vehicles had wheel slip.

But the Honda was the permanent vehicle. Rainy season and dry season. We HAD to upgrade the tires.
So if Goofy (the original poster), finds himself in a situation where he needs the tires with more aggressive tread.... then so be it....

Honda/GM/Toyota-- whatever it may be. If I lived out there- I definitely would change the tread on my Traverse/Equinox.

Just a side note, if snow and ice is the primary concern, then take a serious look at dedicated snow tires for the winter months. Then go back to standard tires in the warmer months. One might find that a better alternative to putting on AT tires.

BF Goodrich makes the All Terrain TA K02 in the stock 17 inch size for the Gen2’s. Note that there were two slightly different OEM 17 inch specs depending on whether the factory tires were Michelin or Firestone. The Goodrich K02’s have the winter “snowflake” rating. Just FYI...

But the KO2's are outrageously expensive, the general grabber ATX's on my wifes car were only $119 per tire mounted and balanced.
