OEM equipment for my used Mazda 3 S GT hatchback, seems to have pretty good responsiveness in cornering but wear is fast (I have put about 2K on them and they have a total of 17K and have already worn down to about 4/32") So I am probably going to replace them before winter. As a side note, I have only driven in a little bit of snow conditions but was very unimpressed with their traction (almost got stuck tuning around in a driveway with a 10 degree up angle to the road and a little packed snow over gravel)

Initial Review, 40,000 Miles on Tires
April 24, 2013

I bought these to replace the original Goodyear tires that came on the car. I am satisfied with them overall. There is a very slight whine at highway speeds but it is barely noticeable and I have to listen closely to even hear it. Other than that, they are very quiet riding tires and have not gotten any noisier after 40,000 miles. Tread wear is good and they stay in balance. They ride and handle very well during my normal driving on dry roads. I drive in snow occasionally in winter and the traction in snow and slush is decent considering that the Corolla is a pretty light car.

The only real complaint I have with them is that they have poor traction on wet pavement. They will break loose during moderate to heavy braking and cornering. Part of the reason this is so noticeable is that they handle so well on dry roads that it makes the grip on wet roads seem much worse than I would expect.

Overall a good tire and, even considering the wet road traction issue, I would probably buy them again.

I installed these tires recently. What it all comes down to is what kind of driver are you. These tires are the best I have ever had. They are silent (especially on the highway), smooth, and very low rolling resistance. If you are an easy going type of driver that just wants a quiet, smooth, fuel efficient tire, then these are the ones. They are great in wet weather too. If you demand more from a tire (aggressive driver), these might be good for you, but perhaps another brand would be suitable. Will re-post when more miles have been accumulated.

Over the years, these are the best all-around V-rated tires for the WRX I have used in terms of performance and comfort. Cornering in both dry/wet conditions are superior to similar model tires. Road noise is less than other brands. The only disappointment I have is the tread life. For a tire rated at 560, They are almost due for replacement at less than 20,000 miles. In this regard, these are no better than the stock, and other Z- W- rated tires.

Purchased the Continental ProContact EcoPlus the Fall of 2012 after much research at Tire Rack and Consumer Reports. Could have gotten a few thousand more miles out of the OE Yokohama AVID S33D but winter (rain) was coming. Hated the S33's as they did nothing well except help get good gas mileage and was only going to get 40,000 miles out of them. Immediately the EcoPlus were quieter, smoother, and with great wet grip but the mileage dropped from 52mpg to 47 or 48 and I was disappointed. I knew winter might be a factor and old worn down tires roll easier than new tires but I was still surprised. Now that Spring has arrived and the tires have 6K on them my mileage is back up. Just returned from a 451 mile trip to Santa Rosa and Fort Ross and the trip meter is showing 54.3mpg. That includes freeway, urban, and coastal driving. I could not be happier. Air pressures are at the correct settings for the Prius, 35 front, 33 rear. I don't think there is much advantage in higher pressures compared with the disadvantages; harsh ride, less contact patch, increased braking distance, wandering on the highway, and wearing out the center of the tread. I used to be the manager of a busy tire store and from the tire manufactures seminars I learned that hard over-inflated tires are more susceptible to punctures. A tire that is rock hard will puncture much more easily than one that has a little give to it. Imagine a balloon that is very full versus one that is not so full. The full one pops much more easily. Go with the car manufactures recommendation. They have worked with the tire manufactures to give you the best tire pressures for your vehicle in regard to safety, longevity, handling, comfort, and overall performance. The engineers for the cars and the tires know better than you. I love my Prius and my almost new but broken-in EcoPlus tires. These are at the top of my list when I need to buy new tires for my Subaru Baja.

A pretty decent tire in most respects, but with 7/32 tread left, snow performance was rather poor. If you don't care about snow performance, then the AVID TRZ would be a good choice. Otherwise, forget about traction in winter unless the tires are brand new.

I constantly put 400 miles a day on my tires. The miles are mostly highway with the ocasional cutting through traffic through some side streets. I could not have been happier with my purchase and would recommend these tires to anyone who wants long lasting tires. The only reason why my tires gave out at 102000 is because I hit a couple of pot holes during my side street detour. A lump formed on the side wall of the tire and 4,000 miles later it blew. I strongly believe that if I would have never had the bubble, the tires would have lasted another 40,000!
*your text box wouldn't let my put 102,000 so I had to put 99,999K miles

These tires are the best tires that i have ever had. I put about 25,000 miles a year on my car and there is a huge difference between these tires and others that i have used. They offer a smooth quiet ride which is actually tough to get with a 12 year old car.
I also have new camry and that car rides rougher than my old one. Will defintely purchase again.

Tires wore unevenly and quickly regardless of air pressure, rotations, balances, and alignment. When visiting a service location recently, customer in front of me in line had the same issues with the same tires on his vehicle at even lower mileage. Tires were significantly worn at just over 30,000 miles; belts separated around 38,000, and required immediate replacement.

Purchased in 2010 as certified used. Dunlops and Firestone tires were scary, screamy on turns, took for ever to stop, always kept skidding and thus my family was scared to drive/ride. These 4 new Yokohama brought back the true joy of driving and ride comfort. Braking is much shorter and firm. absolute minimum road noise. far better gas mileage. we are enjoying quiet, comfort Toy Sienna drive/ride.

 

Best Tires for a Toyota Sienna

Friday, May 3, 2013 by Steve Huffman

For over a decade, the Toyota Sienna has been a very popular minivan for American families. Toyota's dependability, comfortable ride and ample room has kept these vans on the road for years. Many owners have logged well over 100,000 miles on them and have purchased multiple sets of tires for their vehicle. Like most vans, these vehicles are charged with hauling families, groceries and sports equipment all over town. Families will also use the minivan to travel long distances while going on vacation. The drivers of these vans are typically looking for great all-season traction, long lasting treadlife and a comfortable ride.

One of my favorite tires for this vehicle is the Goodyear Assurance ComforTred Touring. First of all, this tire has fantastic all-season traction. Also, as the name suggests, it offers exceptionally good ride qualities, including a very smooth, quiet and comfortable ride. They are long lasting with an 80,000-mile treadlife warranty in the T- and H-speed rated versions, and a 70,000-mile treadlife warranty for the V-speed rated model. If this sounds like the tire for you, take advantage of our special offer.

Another great option for the Sienna is the Bridgestone Dueler H/L 422 Ecopia. Although this tire is marketed as a Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season tire, Toyoto uses popular SUV sizes on their newer Siennas and this is definitely one of the best tires in the size. Like the Goodyear mentioned above, this tire also offers great all-season traction and comes with a 65,000-mile treadlife warranty. The advantage with this tire is that it is Bridgestone's low rolling resistance tire, which means it will provide you with optimum fuel economy.

If you're looking for a good value option, consider the Yokohama AVID Ascend. This Grand Touring All-Season tire features Yokohama's Orange Oil technology and is branded with their BluEarth eco-friendly identification. It's designed to blend long treadwear, low rolling resistance and all-season traction, even in light snow.

I was hesitant to write this review with only 2,000 miles logged on this tire over 2 months on this vehicle; however, since I just reviewed this same tire that's been on my other vehicle (2001 Sienna) for over 2 years now, I figured I'd go ahead with this review. I liked the tire enough on the Sienna for the past 2+ years to put a set on the Camry.



So far, so good on this car. Granted, it's summertime, so we haven't yet seen any snow or ice, but I've been quite pleased with the wet conditions handling thus far during our summer storms and showers. It's still far too early to venture a guess on potential tread wear though.

I had the Yokohama Avid H4s on before I bought these. The first thing I noticed is that snow and ice traction has improved a little compared to the Yokohamas. The sticky feel of the Yokohama's isn't present on these but they hold their own Touring tires. I like that they are rated for a higher PSI than the Yokohamas as this gives them a more solid feel on the road. Noise comfort is stellar and whisper quiet. Like riding on cotton balls. Much more so than the Yokohamas. Treadwear seems nonexistent thus far. These are a great deal and for those considering the Yokohama H4s, don't overlook these, you'll be pleasantly surprised. I am. Will buy again when the time comes to replace my tires.

Update on original rating. Since I change wheels and tires summer/winter I have no opinion on winter condition traction. I use off road Yoks in the winter. Suffice to say that this tire is the most comfortable and quiet tire I have ever owned. Yoks are the superior brand of tire "for the money" in my view.
