Initial Review, 21,000 Miles on Tires

I love how these tires handle. Take in consideration that the rubber on these tires are thinner than most tires built to last mileage wise. Expect to spend more on tires that doesn't last longer than approximately 30K miles due to the fact that the rubber on these tires are thinner than those tires that can go for 40K+ mileage. The reason for the rubber on these tires are thinner is because performance wise it handles better on the road, it has that "hug" affect. There is more control over the vehicle than those other tires that can last 40K+ miles. Of course, these tires wear out quickly just to the fact that the rubber is made a little thinner.

So, yes these are great .. sport performance. Cost is expected for performance not for the long lasting performance. So depending what is sought out..These are the best for performance handling. The cost is steep .. but you get what you pay for. I'd purchase it again!

Initial Review, 200 Miles on Tires

I bought these tires to replace a set of the Avid ENVigor's that I thought were awful. They were the noisiest tire I have ever owned, and only lasted 48k miles on a 60k warranty. I was hesitant to buy a similar line and looked at buying the Hankook Ventus S1 Noble2. After comparing them to the Avid Ascend's, I gambled and went with these due to the longer 75k mileage expectancy, and the deeper treads. So far, I am beyond happy with these tires. The ride noise is MUCH, MUCH lower. The ride is very comfortable, and feels brand new. The steering response has been great. I have driven them in a good downpour and they were great. No snow or ice yet as its going into summer where I live. Overall, I am very happy with my purchase. 200 miles isn't that much, but the improved noise and ride comfort was so much better, I wanted to post this. I will continue to update as I put more miles on them and when I am able to get some winter driving in.

I am a licensed mechanic and car dealer for over 25 years and now an RV dealer and am very impressed with this tire. My 2012 Camry Hybrid XLE came with Bridgestones and barely got 31000 miles before wear bars showed. I researched all tires available with low rolling resistance and the Yokohama was rated 1st above all the others and ended up being the lease expensive since Toyota offered buy 3 and get one free special. Upon driving out of the dealership these tires transformed my Toyota into a Lexus with fantasic ride comfort, handling and ZERO noise factor compared to the Bridgestones!
I thought my 2 year old car was better than brand new.
I would caution that if you review the compounds of these tires the snow and ice things would not be ideal. I also think some of the negative comments I read were a result of not looking at the best tires for your car and your driving conditions.
Other than these subjective issues...IF you want the best tire at the best price and value....THIS IS THE ONE!
Sincerely
MLS

Tires have been great for the first 15,000 miles. No sign of hydroplaning or loss of grip in rain. No snow yet but will have better idea after this winter. Great tire and very economical. As quiet and comfortable as my OEM Michelin Latitude HP and MUCH less expensive.
