Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force Super Sport A/S (W-Speed Rated)

First of all these tires claim to be an all season but they are awful in the snow and mediocre in the rain at best. On dry pavement they are fair with traction but they are extremely noisy and harsh over bumps. I got these to replace my stock yokohama advans that were toast and they were the first set I came across a deal on so I bought them. 5000 miles...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN Neova AD08

This is the third set of Yoko AD07 or AD08 I have purchased for my Porsche. I am a track rat, but have dedicated tires/wheels for the track. This is my daily driver, and is driven 50% city, 50% highway, including in the rain. These tires are fantastic with the best dry and wet grip available in a street tire. The turn-in is sharp, but not quite as good as...  Read More

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

Can't say enough about this tire!! I've run the P6's for years. What a mistake. The difference between the two tires makes this feel and ride like a totally different car. I cannot comment on the snow traction but in dry weather, the Audi Allroad corners sharper, rides softer and is very smooth. They are quiet, responsive and I've had my average gas mileage...  Read More

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

Ordered for Lexus several years ago and have been happily surprised with minimal wear. Tires still look new. Excellent grip and very comfortable. Gave us the best ride we ever had on our LS 400. Handles very well, good turn in and really responsive. Rotated and balanced normally. At higher speeds we were surprised the tire was silent. Really feels secure dry...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN A10F

This tire has been a good, general purpose tire for use in the Deep South--no snow, but plenty of rain and fog. It has not been put to the high speed test because the car is not a high-speed car!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN Neova AD08

This is the best street tire out there if your looking for the fastest lap times. Dry grip is amazing, steering feel is sharp and super fast, wet grip is even very good at 100+mph felt no loss of traction with wet track conditions and pouring rain, I was impressed. They never overheated on the road course with 30min sessions. Braking grip is very good too.Ver...  Read More

These tires for a street car are pretty ---- impressive I have to say. The amount of input you get from these tires really allows the driver to feel comfortable pushing the car to the limits, and not feel like your driving on a knife edge that can let go at any moment.Even if your cornering hard and hit a bump in the road, these tires keep you firmly planted...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN Neova AD08

Have used this tire on my Genesis 3.8 GT for tracking. They have at least 20 track sessions of 25 minutes . Very responsive and pleasant to drive. Best tires for this car without R compounds. When threads are used this is not a tire for tracking in the rain. Otherwise I will get the same tires for this car for sure. The tires have a nice thread pattern. Look...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN Sport

These were the stock tires on my vehicle and drove extremely well when new. While I had no problem whatsoever breaking the rear loose in a straight line or in turning situations (even at speed!), skid entrance was predicatable and controlable. The vehicle turned in very good lateral accerleration numbers (measured). Beginning at 50% treadwear, performance...  Read More
