One of the most important aspects of my job is to help my customers get the best tire for their driving needs and budget. When I talk with our customers to get some idea about what they are looking for in a tire, very often the answer is, ”A little bit of everything.” If you are like the average driver today, you are looking to get the most you can for your tire dollars. Do you want.....
- Touring tire ride comfort
- Performance tire handling
- All-season traction
- Low rolling resistance for improved fuel economy
- All at a reasonable price
With ENVigor, Yokohama has develop a tire that has great rolling resistance, performance treadwear and comfort for its category.
During development, Yokohama’s engineers looked at handling, braking and rolling resistance, just like we do at Tire Rack. The result of this thorough development is one of the best all-around tires.
Yokohama says this is the direction that H-rated tires will be going. These tires need nice handling, treadwear and strong rolling resistance; they have to be everything now. According to Yokohama, this tire is not just high performance, it is “grand performance.”
When Tire Rack tested the Yokohama AVID ENVigor a few weeks ago, we found that it had a nice, linear feel to the way it responded to steering inputs. It also kept much of the road's harshness away from the driver while still feeling predictable and stable. In the wet, the Yokohama handled well, displaying good overall traction and excellent stability during hard cornering and braking. Our testing concluded as follows:
- Test Rank: 1st
- Excellent wet and dry traction
- Good ride comfort
- Best fuel economy (28.7 mpg)
If you want a little bit of everything in a lot of good tire, look no further.
