Yokohama geolander or Bridgestone HT

I am about to get a 2020 limited and it has Bridgestone tires on it. My 2015 limited has Yokohama Geolanders. It looks like some 2020 4runners come with Yokohama and some come with Bridgestone. Ive never had Bridgestone. Should I swap the bridge stones out for Yokohama? Any help on which is better would be appreciated.

Hi:

I don't know which is better, but what I can tell you two things
1- drive on highway and make sure there is no vibrations with the truck you are going to buy. some members had issues with vibrations from new.
2- double check the PSI. mine was 42 psi when new and it should be around 32-35. I read that they are shipped inflated and dealer should be readjusting them when inspecting the car.

I have Yokohama with my new 2020 and so far with few miles they are OK.

My wife's last Forester came with geolanders and they did really well to meet her needs. Her new one has the Bridgestone Ecopia and they are absolutely terrible with respect to handling and all-season performance when compared to the Yokohama's.

Bridgestone Duelers H/Ts are largely a tire manufactured as an OE product. They're not bad if the car comes with them, but I wouldn't willingly purchase them again. And forget driving in snow with them. That's just scary.

Tire Rack is a good resource for tire comparisons. I'll throw a link in to demonstrate the difference between the Bridgestone and the Yokohama: Tire Rack Comparison

See my post

This is how to handle social distancing (pic)...

The H/Ts are amazing compared to my Yoko's

For what it's worth my 2016 came with Bridgestone tires and the steering wheel shimmy was quite pronounced, no one could get them to balance. Finally at 15K miles I swapped them for Wildpeaks, shimmy was gone and has been for 30K+ miles now.
