Our Rav has Yokohama G91 tires on it, but I find nothing online about the expected tread life (or tread warranty) for this tire. I found G51s on the Yokohama site, but nothing on G91s anywhere. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

I believe that these tires are made specifically for our trucks by Yokohama, thats why you wil not be able to find out anything from their website. Our Ravs come with that or the Bridgestone duelers which are HORRIBLE. Be happy you got the better tires. They should last 30-35 k miles..

The Dueler H/L Alenza tires got very good reviews at www.tirerack.com. Has your experience been that much different? There are few tires available in the 225/65R17 size right now so even if I agree with you and want to chnge to something better, I am not sure what it would be.

Tires

Thx for the info. I was hoping to get better than 30-35K with these Yokohamas. The Dunlops on our Camry lasted 30K, whereas we had a Ranger that had all sorts of other problems, but the tires on it were still going strong at 50K.

We ended up replacing those Dunlops with Pirellis that had an 80K warranty and very good reviews. The problem is that they are extremely noisy... is there a site where user reviews talk about noise?

They put crappy oem Goodyears on my current Element. I still managed to get 45,000 miles out of them before upgrading to the Goodyear Fortera with Kevlar. Stickier then any tire out there in the SUV class. Super comfortable quiet tire with a 70,000 mile guarantee.

Warranty

Wow, that is good news. 2006 owners: Is there a warranty on the Geolanders? I was trying to find that info in my materials, but couldn't...

All the Yokohama's I browsed to at Tire Rack and at Yokohama's website listed a minimum 60k "Limited Treadwear Warranty", including the (I'm guessing) similar G93B's -- some even had 80k.

Yokohama Original Equipment G91A
The G91A is available in the following sizes.

225/65R17 101H
235/55R18 99H

Note: If you have any questions regarding the original manufacturer equipment for your vehicle, pleae call our specialists at 800-722-9888 or your local dealer.
I'm not gonna call the 800 number for ya though! ;)

Called

Called Yokohama, the guy said there is just a 1yr free replacement warranty on the tires since they're OEM. No mileage warranty. Treadwear 280, traction B, temp A. The treadwear rating is significantly lower than the 60K mile tires, so I'm guessing that we will not be getting 60K miles out of these.

Hi, I'm new to this site and new to the Rav experience. I got a flat today in my Yokohama G91's - got a spike or something in the tire wall and it's not repairable. I've been looking online for a dealer that sells them and can't find any. Any suggestions?

My wife got a screw thru the sidewall at around 1500 miles. I got a replacement from Tirerack.com.

Thanks everyone! I called Yokohama and they directed me to call local tire dealerships who have ordered 1 and should be here in 2 days!

thanks!
