Yokohama Geolandar Crossover Tires vs Light Truck SUV Tires

Yokohama has been known for their high performance tires amongst enthusiasts in the industry for decades. Tires like the popular S.Drive and its predecessor, the AVS Intermediate, have a special place in the memories of many high performance drivers.   Yokohama offers much more than performance tires. Whether you're looking at touring tires for the family...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID TOURING-S

These are absolutely excellent tires for the price, and I'd recommend them for nearly any normal vehicle. I've had several sets of different Yokohama tires, and have enjoyed every single one of them (including AS530, various AVID and Geolander truck tires). These AVID Touring-S tires have been perfect for 60,544 trouble free miles so far as of today. I'm...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID ENVigor (H- or V-Speed Rated)

This is a follow-up to my initial review of the Envigor when we first had them mounted in Summer of 2010 with 36,000 miles on our Camry. After more than 60,000 miles, my impression of these tires has not changed: they are great value for the money and performance over their life only deteriorated toward the end when tread depth reached about 4/32nds. At that...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID Ascend (H- or V-Speed Rated)

I bought these as a replacement tire for my Honda Odyssey, they replaced the Yokohama TRZ, these tires seem like a step up from the the TRZ's in every way. They are comfortable riding, relatively quiet (hard to gauge this as the '05 Odyssey has some road noiseRegardless of tire choice). The Avid Ascend's are good in the rain and provide good snow traction...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID TOURING-S

I was a little surprised at how many miles I had put on these tires. Overall I've been pretty happy with them, however one tire never seemed to have quite the same grip as the other three and is now getting down around 1-2/32nds, while the other three are around 3-4/32nds. They did great in some heavy snow in the St. Louis area, pulling my civic through plow...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID Ascend (T-Speed Rated)

UPDATE to my 12/02/14 review. I took my car back to the tire center and they took it for a test ride (which they don't normally do when installing tires only) and found a bad wheel bearing. It cost me more for the bearing job than ALL the tires, but it worked to reduce the loud noise! A little disappointed they didn't find this earlier. But my rating for...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID S33D

Avid S33D was OE tire on our Prius. This tire has exceeded all expectations, especially longevity for an OE tire. Still have legal tread depth left and remain perfectly round after over 54,000 miles. Noise is average for a tire while not being uncomfortable, plus they have maintained good performance in rain at the limits of wear. A recent trip in Oct of...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P4 Four Seasons Plus

Bought these tires forma box store two years ago to replace a set of Yokohama Avid Touring tires S (also an nice touring tire). I think the Pirellis perform better, (a little squeal on sharp fast turns) I gentle reminder that I need to ease up.These perform a lot better on turns and emergency turns. The stopping distances have slightly reduced. At almost...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID Ascend (H- or V-Speed Rated)

These tires replaced original equipment Goodyear Assurance ComforTred Touring at 70,000 miles. Dry road handling is very good, although not as quite as tight as I would like them, about on par with the Goodyears. They have a very smooth ride. I've had absolutely no sliding or hyroplaning on wet roads. I'm a little disappointed with the noise levels, they are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID Ascend (H- or V-Speed Rated)

Replaced the OEM tires(made in China w/treadwear=340)with these Yokohama Avid Ascend which interestingly are sourced from U.S.A. Very pleased with the tire's smooth quiet ride and good response to driver input. I changed tires for greater safety in today's traffic situations and road conditions. Yokohama Avid Ascend certainly measures up anddoes so at a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID Ascend (T-Speed Rated)

I bought these tires to replace the nearly worn out Turanza EL400s that came on my used CRV. The EL400s were terrible. Hydroplaned constantly and quite noisy. These Yokahamas are fantastic! Living in the Mid-Atlantic region I've had quite a winter to test these guys! Light snow traction is excellent and deep snow traction is very good. I've been able to get...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID ENVigor (H- or V-Speed Rated)

Originally used the AVID V4S--absolutely awesome entry level sport tire (discontinued). I switched to this tire because it was developed from the V4S. It's not as good in my opinion, but has excellent traits.The low rolling resistance technology incorporated is great for commuting, ok for track use--the sidewalls appear to be a bit soft. Still provides more...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID TOURING-S

These have proven outstanding tires. They have 30k+ miles on them and well more than 1/2 tread left. We live in the rainy PNW and at the foot of the Cascade mountains. They handle dry summer roads well. Our wet fall and winters, with steady constant rain, really test tires. They have never shown a weak point and channel water well providing great wet...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

Replaced Yokohama AVID with the Pirelli P7s and the difference is amazing. These tires are quiet and responsive in all conditions. I would highly recommend these tires.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID ENVigor (H- or V-Speed Rated)

This is a great tire at a great price. Have only driven in wet conditions a couple of times but they handled beautifully. Nice ride, quiet, and they look nice; cool tread pattern too.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle Sport All-Season (W-Speed Rated)

Let me begin by saying that I always read these reviews with an open mind. But I never know how to really take them. So I write this strictly as a comparison between the tire that came on my car and the Goodyear eagle sport. My mazda 3 came with Yokohama avids in 205/50 17. The cars handling made up for what the tires lacked. The Yokohamas didn't do anything...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID ENVigor (H- or V-Speed Rated)

30,000 miles on these tires and they are fantastic. They grip well for an all season tire and are very comfortable and have have no excessive road noise. Ive driven these in heavy and light snow and they did great. I ran a set on the front for 2 years and around 25,000 miles without rotating them. I am happy to say that they did not wear unevenly and are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID ENVigor (W-Speed Rated)

I bought these tires for my son to put on his 2005 Mustang GT. Past tires have not provided near the mileage I had hoped for but these tires have lasted longer than any tire I have ever bought. To say my son drives this Mustang GT in a most spirited manor would be an understatement. However, these tires have met a most challenging environment and have...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID Ascend (H- or V-Speed Rated)
