Yokohama AVID Ascend (H- or V-Speed Rated)
Initial Review: 23,000 miles on tires
October 20, 2012

We bought these tires based on reviews from this site. The reviews said they were quiet and smooth. They were far from quiet. In fact, they were some of the noisiest tires I have ever had on a car. We were never able to get them to balance properly. Finally one of the tires developed a very bad vibration that likely was a belt problem. We just replaced them with Michelin Primacy and the difference is night and day. I wish we had gone with the Michelin to begin with. As they say, you get what you pay for. I will never buy Yokohama tires again.
