Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN Sport A/S

I replaced my OEM Dunlop SP Sport 5000 tires at 22,000 miles on the Mazda 6 GT with these. I use them for commuting to work and in the winter I plan to run dedicated winter tires. So far this summer these have been a great deal quieter and smoother than the OE tires, and I am very happy with the ride quality. The professional installation at the dealer on a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN Neova AD08 R

Ran about 200 miles at Barber Motorsports park in 30-40 degree temps. Grip was amazing once warmed up but still gripped great right out of the pits. Braking is on par with other tires in the category. Ran pressures around 32/30 psi cold which translated to 36/34 hot. I never could get a good hot reading because it was cooling down a lot by the times I got to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo 2

OK, so I haven't put enough miles on these yet to determine treadwear and snow performance. All I can say is that, so far, these tires have been a major improvement over the OEM tires. Perfect for a Tundra 4 door with my type of usage. More importantly, I wanted to weigh in on the excelling value of user reviews in making a good decision on new tires. My...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN S.4.

This is the best tire I've ever used. I have switch to this tires from Hankook ventus cause I've skidded twice on a wet road. After that I've never experience any kind od skid. Truly the traction and responsiveness in wet and dry road is excellent. I already have 50.000 miles on this tire for 5 years and still got 20% on my tire. Definitely I'll stick to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN Sport A/S

I purchased these tires 3 months ago and have just over 5K miles on them. We had a bad winter here with lots of rain and some snow. The tires have performed great. No issues in rain or snow. So far it looks like they will last for a while.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN Neova AD08 R

These will be the 4th set of AD08s I have had over the years. I have tried many of the other Extreme Performance Summer' tires including RE-11s (1 set), Star Specs (1 set), and R-S3s (2 sets). (I have not tried the BFG g-Force Rivals because they don't come in the size I need.) These however are still my favorite street tires and I will continue going back...  Read More

What to Buy When the Michelin Pilot Super Sport is Backordered

The Michelin Pilot Super Sport is an outstanding tire. It combines top-tier wet and dry traction with responsive handling, making it a benchmark in the Max Performance Summer category. Unfortunately, it has been out of stock in many sizes this summer. So what do you do if the Super Sport has an indefinite backorder in your size? It depends on why you wanted...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN Sport V105

Can't believe i'm the first to review this awesome tire! I've tried the Continental 5P/Michelin Supersports/and now the V105's. These tires met and exceeded all my expectations. Can't believe they have so much dry traction.. No tire squeeling on high speed corners and it really takes a lot to tax these tires. Although they wear fast that is to be expected...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN Sport A/S

I was able to experience these in light and heavy snow as well as ice all in one drive to work this year. In light snow they are fine and braking and steering were still predictable. They did give up a good amount traction in deep snow and ice. Even with all wheel drive I did not feel very confident in the tire's ability to stop and steer around corners. If...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN A048

I have the AO48's for track tires and AD07's for the street. The LTS tires seem to have a little less grip than the M compound AO48's I had before, but look like they are wearing less quickly. Very responive and progressive on the track. May try Toyo R888 or Hoosier R6 next time if I don't buy another set of these.   Read More

Last year, Yokohama introduced an addition to their Ultra High Performance All-Season line-up with the ADVAN Sport A/S. Unlike previous Yokohama models, this tire features an asymmetric tread pattern that allows it to be rotated side-to-side, as well as front-to-back on non-staggered applications. During our internal testing, the ADVAN Sport A/S held its...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN Sport A/S

Picked a good week for new tires. I've been thru three rain storms (major soakers) and the new Advan A/S's have performed brilliantly --- even at speeds probably a bit higher than you should be going in heavy rain. Not once has the car felt anything other than planted --- even thru standing water. I'm hopeful that performance in the snow will be similar.I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN Sport A/S

I would recommend the Yokohama Advan Sport A/S to a friend. I have now tried the Pirelli PZero, Michelin Pilot Sport A/S and the Yokohama Advan Sport A/S on my 2014 Audi A6 with Sport suspension and 20 wheels. Here are the results:Pirelli Pzero: Loud low pitched and high pitched whine at all speeds. Noise gets louder as speed increases. LOUD over 60...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN S.4.

If you own a BMW 1995 5 series, BUY THESE TIRES!! What a difference from the BF Goodriches they replaced! In the interest of full disclosure, though, I mounted them on 18 inch Verde Kaos rims (also bought here), not the OEM basket mesh rims. This may be an important detail. I've gotten MANY compliments on how sharp and classy this tire/wheel combo looks on...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Sumitomo HTR Z III

Great Tire for the price, they have been wearing great for a performance summer tire. I have hit many potholes and no bubbles have formed like I have had on Toyo's in the past. Side walls are not as stiff as the OEM Yokohama Advans that came stock on the car but those are over 2x the cost. Great wet traction (Seattle) and great Dry as well. I will be...  Read More
