Yokohama introduced the AVID Ascend in a variety of popular sizes for most passenger car and minivan applications. The AVID Ascend is Yokohama's first mass-produced Grand Touring Touring All-Season tire in the United States to feature their Orange Oil technology which uses oil extracted from renewable orange peels to improve treadlife, fuel efficiency and traction in dry, wet and light snow conditions.
AVID Ascend tires feature a mildly asymmetric tread design that allows for criss-cross tire rotation and a quiet ride. With a 75,000 mile warranty for the H-speed rated tire and an 80,000 mile warranty for the T-speed rated option to go along with a 30-day test drive guarantee, customers are sure to love this latest offering from Yokohama. We are in the process of wrapping up our testing for this tire, however customer reviews are already pouring in with positive feedback.
"Best tires I have ever bought in my 50 years of buying tires! After buying the Yokohama AVID Ascend, my Hyundai Genesis rides like a true luxury automobile like I expected when I bought it. As a bonus, because they are LRR (Low Rolling Resistance) tires, my mileage improved." -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2011 Hyundai Genesis Sedan 3.8
"I got the tires installed just 3 days before driving a 2,000 miler to Florida from Ohio and back with family and luggage in tow. I was immediately glad I had these new tires, as it poured rain and hailed along most of the drive to Florida. The tires felt firm and sure the entire time, which was a great experience in comparison to the Kumhos which were previously on our van. The tires handled remarkably well in cornering, stopping and under quick acceleration. While in Florida we did a good but of driving under dry conditions and was equally impressed with the Ascend. My wife and I both noticed how solid and sure these tires felt. We are very impressed with this tire!" -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT
