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

Yokohama ADVAN Sport A/S: A Solid Ultra High Performance All-Season at a Good Price

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

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

This tire is simply amazing. This was our first purchase of an Ultra High Performance All Season tire and I believe we made a great choice. We bought the tires as we needed some traction on our 2006 BMW 330i. We did not want to invest in a new four wheel drive or front wheel drive vehicle. Well two snow storms in, these tires have met the challenge. This...  Read More

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

I've only had these tires for a few short days, but got over the 500 mile usage with them, and driven in both dry and wet conditions, no snow unfortunately. First thing, this is an attractive tire, no oversize lettering on the sidewall, simple and effective. The tread design is quite unique in it's own, and likely the reason why I rated this tire as such....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110

Purchased these as a replacement for the Yokohama Advan A82A's that I had previously. Primary reason was price point and other good reviews. I am very impressed with the ride quality, they ride a teeny bit softer than other HP summer tires - but still offer incredible grip and cornering. Highway noise is not bad considering the tread pattern, and MPG is...  Read More

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

Just hit the 3000 mile mark on these tires. I rotated tires front to back and tread now measures 10/32 & 9/32. As temperatures are starting to fall here in the mid-west, so is some of the lateral grip, especially on hard sweeping turns. This is somewhat expected from the All-Season compounds. These tires continue to be extremely comfortable and quiet. I'm...  Read More

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

Still very satisfied with tire after about 3000 miles. Waiting for a good snow now to see how it performs in winter conditions.   Read More

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

Got these because the price was right and I need an all season performance tire due to the driving conditions in Germany. Right off the bat I noticed a big difference from the Dunlops that came with my Mazda. The Advan Sport A/S are whisper quiet and held the road well in some recent heavy rain. I have not been able to get these out on the Autobahn yet to...  Read More

These two items are critical when choosing a tire option for your Subaru.  One of the current top tires for the Outback, Forester and Crosstrek is...  Read More

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

These four new Yokohama Advan S.4 98W 225/60/16 tires are perfect in every way for both driving 55 MPH in the number two freeway lane in Los Angeles and also passing at wide open throttle at double that speed. My Lincoln Mark VIII with its tight stock air suspension and steering is now a quiet, enjoyable to steer luxury car for the first time ever. The Advan...  Read More

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

For enthusiasts with cars that are driven on the street as opposed to the track, this usually means selecting a tire from our Max Performance Summer category.
