I have put 3k on these tires and am quite impressed. I replaced the orig. Yoko's that had 80k on them. The noise level is very good as is the traction. I have a 3 lift on my p/up, so I do not corner hard. I have not had them off-road yet, but I am sure they will handle anything I throw at them.
I have put off buying tires through Tire Rack through the years because I felt at their price, the tires must be 'seconds' or close-outs. That is not the case at all. The D.O.T. #'s show the 24th week of 2011.
I called Customer Service to purchase the tires as I do not use my debit/credit card on line. Rep was very knowledgeable and professional. The tires shipped to my installer over night, (KY to AL).
I recently had an oil change etc at the Dealership. I told the service rep, ....too bad you guys do not carry Yoko's in stock. I just purchased four through Tire Rack. He said he could have ordered them, but could not meet Tire Racks' price.
Do your self a favor and buy your tires through Tire Rack.
