I've just replaced the OE Geolanders on my Subaru XV and it's five years old next month. Five years and 47K miles. Not a bad effort i think. They were decent tyres and i was happy with them.

I have the Geolanders in standard Gen4 size. I wonder if they have discontinued that size?

Hi Soeley.

According to the Yokohama website, they do not make any 195 section tyres to GO15 spec. I have emailed them for clarification.

The tyres I'm running have the three peaks mountain snowflake symbol.

It doesn't make them winter tyres though, it just means that they met the criteria for the required grip levels on snow.

The only 4x4 tyres I can find for the jimny are the General xp2000 and the Bridgestone DM V2 (unavailable it seems).

The bridgestone has a new extra symbol that interests me suggesting they have compliance with standards for extra grip on icy conditions.

A quick check on the RAC website gives the following info.
If a tyre is marked M and S (Mud and Snow ) it is not necessarily a winter tyre. If it has the snowflake symbol, then it is a proper winter tyre.

Make your own minds up, plenty of info if you Google it.
Here is one such page.
www.oponeo.co.uk/blog/how-to-read-tyre-markings
Yoko's have both M+S and the 3PMSF markings (3 peak), I am sure others do. What ever is printed on them the Yoko's work very well in snow, which tends to be a winter thing,  hence why I recommend them.
 

Yokohama Geolanders, Sony head unit, NAUTILUS Air Horn, DRL conversion, Rear cargo space, Elvis Bobblehead, transfer Guard, Indian hanging Elephant, Koni Heavy track dampers, Custom SS exhaust, Voodoo Doll, Adventure Rack with LED ight bar, vintage ERIBA caravan usually attached (yes it's slow)
