Are Yokohama Tires Good?

Yokohama has been around for many years and makes very good options to fulfill your tire replacement needs.

In the Max Performance Summer category, they recently introduced the ADVAN Sport V105. It's developed for the drivers of high-powered sports cars, sporty coupes and performance sedans who want an increase in agile handling with a more comfortable ride. Based on technology fostered through participation in motorsports and development at the Nurburgring Circuit in Germany (one of the world's most grueling race/test tracks), the tire is designed to promote dry traction and handling.

If you're shopping for something a bit more extreme, then take a look at the ADVAN Neova AD08 R. It's Yokohama's latest Extreme Performance Summer offering and provides an even higher level of dry traction and handling, while giving up some treadlife and ride quality compared to the ADVAN Sport V105.  

If you are looking for an all-season option that offers sporty handling, the AVID ENVigor is available in H- or V- and W-speed ratings. While the tire doesn't offer the high traction and handling attributes of summer tires, it'll last longer and give you some winter traction versatility.

Another all-season option to consider is the AVID TOURING-S. This Standard Touring All-Season tire is developed for the drivers of coupes, sedans and minivans and is engineered to provide good traction, excellent ride qualities and long treadlife.  

For those of you who own a truck, crossover or sport utility vehicle, Yokohama offers the Parada Spec-X. Based on survey results, the tire is rated number one by consumers in the Street/Sport Truck All-Season category. Two additional light truck/SUV tires worth considering, include the Geolandar H/T-S G051 and Geolandar A/T-S
