The Yokohama Avid TRZ is a very good tire--excellent in fact for traction and longevity. My only complaint is that it is a bit noisy. I installed the tires in Dec. 2009 at 61,000 miles. I rotated them at 83,000 and 93,000 miles, and just replaced them in Dec. 2012 (with Yokohama Avid Ascends) at 108,000 miles. Got 47,000 miles out of them and they were just hitting the wear bars. Not bad considering I got only 25,000 miles out of the factory tires and 35,000 miles out of the 2nd set, Goodrich T/A's. If the Avid Ascends are anything like the Avid TRZs (which I think they will be), I will be happy.
