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.

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.
