Yokohama Parada Spec-X
Initial Review: 2,000 miles on tires
March 26, 2012

When I upgraded my 2012 Chevrolet Equinox for the 17 Goodyear tires and factory rims I want to go big so I went to a 22 set. I researched online every tire that is manufactured in the size P255/35/22. My first set of tires were Toyo Proxes TR-4. These tires were noisy and rough riding. I hated these tires so much I swapped them out only after 100 miles for a set of Yokohama Parada Spec-X. Yes it cost me several hundred dollars but it was worth every penny. These Yokohama tires are wonderful. I finally have a quiet ride and smooth like I'm driving in a luxury vehicle. I was worried that since I had very little rubber between the rim and road I would have a rough ride but not with the Yokohama tires. You would think there was much more tire. Even the wet handling is outstanding I was traveling a little to fast in the rain the other day and had to make a quick right hand turn but didn't slide at all. I would highly recommend this tire to anyone in the market for a large diameter tire for the small SUV or Truck. I only hope that when it comes time to replace these tires in a few years they still manufacture this tire so I can purchase another set. Only time will tell how many miles I will get from this set of tires. I will update to let everyone know how I like them after one year of driving.
