Senojelyk I ran the old version of the geolander mt, and I can attest to the excessive wear. Drive on the highway a good amount 55mph zones, and they didn't last but 10k miles. I bought them used with about 60% tread left so if my math is right you're looking at just over 22k for new as a highway dd and wheeling on weekends.
Off road they were decent but the procomp Xtreme mts I put on we're much better.

DJL2 I fired up the Google machine to answer this very same question for the very same reason. Between some of the different responses, this is what I gathered:

The original Geolandar MT tended to wear more quickly than was optimal in hot weather and/or high speeds due to a very soft compound. The MT+, which I think is the current version, supposedly addressed these concerns with a slightly different tire compound designed to provide better wear characteristics.

From that I drew the conclusion that, while improved, the Geolandar is not likely to be a high mileage tire for that reason and because it is a directional tread pattern. I guess some folks don't rotate tires the way I do, but I go in this order: spare-back right-front right-back left-front left-spare. Obviously that won't work with a directional tread. Additionally, which way do I get the spare mounted? If I mount the spare for the right side and blow a tire on the left side my spare will now mount up in the wrong direction.

The Geolandar seems like a decently performing tire - I'm just not sure it's the right tire for a more casual rig like mine.

Jmaddox22472 I have been running 285's for about a year now. Good off road through mud dirt rocks and sand. Very smooth on road as well. No complaints!

Anybody running these tires? How do they handle offroad? Do they wear well an last? Sticking to a lighter tire an staying with 33's. Trying to gather info so I know what to choose for my next set when the time comes. I have DuraTracs on at the moment an I'm very happy with them but looking for opinions on the geolander mt since its only a 2lbs difference
