Three Ride Zones -- Yokohama AVID TRZ

Saturday, September 11, 2010 by Tucker Glenn
The Yokohama AVID TRZ is a great choice if you're looking for a Standard Touring All-Season tire. The compound is molded into an asymmetric tread design featuring Three Ride Zones (TRZ) where the outside zone is designed with bigger blocks to give good dry handling while the middle zone concentrates on water evacuation with circumferential grooves. The inside zone features lateral grooves and sipes that emphasize wintertime traction. The result of these three zones is traction in all weather conditions, as well as a soft, comfortable ride. But don't take my word for it, see what one of our customers had to say:

I am very happy with these tires! 78,000 miles on these tires and I am just now looking at replacing them. The ride has been great with less noise than the originals and the responsivness in all weather has been superb!

I have 30,000 miles on my TRZ and am down to 4/32 tread left I rotate every 5000 miles and keep the tires inflated to tire specs. Company i bought tires from says they will not do anythig till it gets to 2/32 tread left. I guess I will need to have and accident in the rain or on our icy wintery roads before they will do anything for me.

Ron,
I'm sorry you are having a bad experience with your tires. Unfortunately, the company you bought the tires from is correct, tread life warranties are applicable if the tires are worn to 2/32nds. What you might try, though, is to contact Yokohama's customer service department. You never know, they might be able to help. Here is a link to their contact page: http://www.yokohamatire.com/about/contact_us/
