Because the owner has a Frotuner and is afraid to be embarrassed by a proper car.

It is safer to change all four.
I read somewhere that if wear is within 10 or 20% from new, then you can change only one.
Please do not quote me on that.

I have a 2011 Outback.
I used to run the Hankook Dynapro HP tire on it.
It is a more highway biased tyre but, can still do the odd mountain pass and rocky track.
I then fitted the Yokohama G012, now the G015.
Very good off road, especially in sand. It does however feel as if you are driving on jelly tots and, a dramatic increase in fuel consumption over the Hankooks.
Stay away from the more road biased Yokohamas like the G095 etc. They are useless off road and highly prone to sidewall punctures.
I would also not go to the higher 65 profile, your fuel consumption will take knock.

Which model Geolandar have you got on at the moment?
I currently run 225/60/17 G012 Geolandars on my Outback.
Previously I had Hankook Dynapro HP on. That is the highway profile but, with some off road ability. I was extremely happy with them on road.
I have also used the Goodyear Wrangler HP on my previous Outback, also a very good tyre.

I am very happy with the off road ability of the G012, though they are now called the G015.
On road handling is a little Jelly Totts like though and, fuel consumption is up from the Hankooks.

Dunno if this has been done by anyone in SA but, the Oz and USA guys often swop in the dual range box from the non turbo models. Gives a lot better towing gear ratio.
You still have to go the Chett route anyway.

Check all your turbo hoses for leaks.
