Looks like somewhere between a BFG KO2 and Cooper AT3... interested to see the feedback.

Hi Miner,

Sorry I went to post a reply and accidental edited your post, hopefully it is returned to your original.

In real life the X-AT is a heavy duty hybrid AT/MT so it is much more aggressive than the BFG AT.

It is similar to the Cooper ST Maxx, Mickey Thompson ATZ P3, Kumho MT51, Goodyear DuraTrac, Nitto Ridge Grappler and the Dick Cepek Trail Country EXP.

OJ.

I found a local (Ozzie) bloke who has had them for 30,000+ ks and seems impressed. Read a few reviews of them and all have commented about the relatively low road noise. Naturally as they get more k,s on them I,d expect them to get just as noisy as any at/mt tyre. Rather an expensive tyre though.

Thanks OJ... didnít realise it was more aligned with the STMaxx, more similar looking now you mention it.

Interesting to see that the website still lists the G012... at the risk of hijacking the thread, thatís another story though.

Ok njswb, I guess I will get around to it...

I put a set of the Yoki X-AT's (265/70 R17 load 121) on about 7000km ago to replace the Falken MT01's which did not perform to my liking (see here).

These are a strong 3 ply sidewall with aggressive-ish tread/side biters and are made in Japan.

So far they have only seen about 10 days of off-road use including two flinders trips and a day trip to Eagle View. The rest has been commute on the bitumen unfortunately.

Impressions so far are they have good grip levels on road, both wet and dry conditions. They are fairly quiet, but at the 5k they were getting a bit noisier, but the scheduled rotation fixed this. I do however have rear alignment set for a medium load, hence for daily duties this is not optimal and induces toe wear, but limits the wear when loaded for trips (have been fewer due to the current conditions). The main problem with IRS in a 4wd unfortunately, and not the tyres fault, hence why I do 5k rotations.

After a similar amount of off-road work with the Falken MT01's, I was seeing considerable tread lug damage. This is not occurring with the Yoki's, so I am happy with this. Grip levels are consistent with previous tyres (Kumho MT51's and the Falken MT01's) in general. They held up pretty well in steep, loose accent/descents and inspire confidence. The recent trip to the flinders saw some rain, and they held true over wet clay roads where I suspected they may suffer due to the less aggressive tread pattern. Sidewalls are not as firm as the MT01's, but firmer than the MT51's. At low pressures and steep rocky work, they have held up well, but are also comfortable at highway pressures on road.

As OJ mentioned in another post, on one of these trips two other forum members had failure of a D697 and a MT Deegan AT, so conditions were not "easy".

Short term impressions have been good, and since I picked them up for around $250 each (have to love February specials), so far they appear to be good value. Will update with a longer term review after more punishment.

Are these Yokoís a Light Truck spec. The load rating would indicate so, but I can find the LT in the specs sheets. I am just sniffing around for a new set of LT A/Tís and these look interesting.

265/65R17 120Q and 265/70R17 121Q are both light truck construction 10 ply rated.

Yes they are a LT spec tyre. With a 3 ply sidewall they are are at the tougher end of the hybrid AT/MT field like MT51s, STMaxx, ATZP3, KO2s and the new Maxxis Razr AT.
