If your New Year's motoring resolution happens to be to finally replace those old, worn-down tires on your personal ride, then you're in luck (especially if you happen to drive an SUV or a pickup truck.

Yokohama Philippines has released a new set of SUV and pickup tires to replace the company's widely successful G051 model. The Geolandar H/T-S G056 is now out, and it's said to be more fuel-friendly, significantly longer-lasting and quieter. And it supposedly offers better braking distance than its predecessor.

To be specific, the G056's noise level has been reduced by 13% compared to the previous model, and it also offers 21% more tire life and 4% better rolling distance. Wet braking distance has seen a 3% improvement, while dry braking distance is now up by 13%. The tires are available in 15- to 18-inch sizes.

The Geolandar G056 completes the Japanese tiremaker's lineup of BluEarth series tires, which aims to be more eco-friendly as well as more fuel-efficient than previous models. Below are the available G056 tires, their sizes and their prices.
