Yokohama Parada Spec-X
Follow-Up Review: 15,000 miles on tires
just wanted to give an update. Although these tires continue to run very quiet, the tread was worn down considerably since my last review. That's probably the most disappointing aspect. As a result, traction in wet weather, has severely diminished. Took my car in for its check up and oil change and was surprised by the level of tire wear pointed out to me by the technician. I said in the past that I would probably buy these again,but looking at some of the other tire ratings, I am probably going to try the continental extreme contact DWS. The test results are similar if not slightly better then the yokohama and in some categories better. Again let me point out that I really liked the yokohamas but the poor wear could possibly make it a poor value long term. Hope the contis do better.
Initial Review: 11,000 miles on tires
Bought these tires almost two years ago based upon the reviews, surveys and specs on the website. I drive less then 10k miles per year.This tire performs very well. I was skeptical based on the price but i can tell you that thee tires are a great value. The ride is comfortable, quiet and traction is great in dry, wet and light snow. I live upstate new york ( poughkeepsie area) and these tires performed very well. Heavy snow traction is not so great. No all season tire is good in those conditions. My only gripe is with the tire wear. i will probably get a few more more months out of them but will need to replace them before this coming winter to maximize snow traction if needed. Would nonetheless buy these tires again. Yokohama may need to tweek the formula just a touch to improve wear.
