These tires replaced a set of Michelin Pilot Exaltos, which are excellent tires. On most measures I would consider the Yokohama to be even better. Dry and wet traction are both excellent, and better than the Michelins. Cornering is excellent. Snow traction is clearly much better than the Michelins.



I do not have enough miles on these tires to comment on treadwear.



The only negative I can think of is that these tires are a bit louder in hard cornering. This is no reason not to buy them, but they are going to let you know when you push the limit. That may actually be a good thing.



One final comment that I think is a bit of an anomaly: This set of tire were balanced three times in the first 750 miles. Basically that means at the original installation and once a week thereafter. There was a subtle high speed (65-70 MPH) balance problem. Neither of the re-balance efforts helped. The problem simply vanished on its own at about 1000 miles.



In summary, I am extremely pleased with these tires and would not hesitate to recommend them. Treadwear is as yet unknown, but the Michelins they replaced made it to 54,000 miles. I would be happy if these Yokohamas reach 40,000 miles.

I have over 220,000 miles on my Golf and have had Goodyear Eagle LS, BF Goodrich Traction TA (twice) and a Kuhmo tire (don't remember which one) and this Yokahama is BY FAR the best tire I've ever had on this car!
I cannot believe the traction it has in not only the wet, but the snow is really good. It feels like a full-blown snow tire to me.
Dry traction and handling is much better than any of the other tires I've had on the car. The sidewall doesn't roll-over during hard cornering (sorry, I'm a licensed SCCA driver so all of my cars go around corners quickly LOL).
Noise is hard to say, it's a 2000 VW Golf so it's not the quietest car to start with. Noise from the tires doesn't seem too bad at all.
All I can say is, this tire is night and day different than any of the other tires I've tried. You really should try them.

I live just outside of the Washington, DC area, home of the just about the worst traffic in the country. Luckily, my daily commute consists mostly of free flowing highway driving with light traffic (down the new ICC toll-road) so 70+ mph is my usual pace there. Otherwise, my normal driving is suburban stop & go, daily grind, sort of stuff. These Kumho Ecsta 4X tires are my 3rd set of tires on this vehicle and by FAR the best I've used. The stock tires were Goodyear Eagle RSA's and as the reviews for those state, they were completely average tires with poor handling in anything but dry conditions. My next set of tires, Yokohama Avid V4S were old standby's that I'd had before on a previous vehicle. They were great tires, especially for the money. At 107,500 I was ready to purchase new tires as I usually always can get 50K+ mi. out of my tires. I read a lot of reviews about the newly redesigned Yoko's but couldn't help noticing the great reviews that the Kumho Ecsta's had received. I took a shot many years ago with Yoko's and have been really happy with them on both my G35x, Ford Explorer, and my Honda Accord V6 coupe. Sorry for the rambling, but just wanted to give some background. In any case, the price on the Kumho Ecsta's was great, and the trusted Tire Rack reviews convinced me to give them a shot on my G. I've had these Ecsta's now for 16,500 mi. from 2/20/13 to current (one year) and loved every minute of these tires. The ride is great, the noise level is adequate, and handling whether through our 90+ degree HUMID summer to our 10 degree lows in several inches of snow in the winter has been nothing short of spectacular at every level. I would highly recommend these tires.

I got these tires already on my 2014 Dodge Caravan , and they are probably one of they worst sets of tires I have ever had . I was really surprised because , Yokohama's are usually great tires . I have zero traction in the snow , or in the rain . Even sometimes when i am pulling out into traffic the tires spin on dry ground . Then I have people laughing at me , because they think that I am trying to burnt out in a Minivan . All that said i would have been better off with a set of Mickey Thompson's on the van , they probably would have had more traction . It is like these tires are set of baloney skins . So I will be purchasing new set of tires from the Tire Rack very soon . Last time around I bought Continental Direct Contact tires,and they were a awesome set of tires . And Tire Rack was very helpful and quick to get my order out . Hope this helps and good luck!!!!

These tires are so much better than the Yokohama Avid that came with the car. They are quieter over rough pavement, grated bridges, highway cruising, and any other road issues. There is no slipping when taking high speed turns. I don't think I could get better tires at the same or higher price.

I love everything about these tires EXCEPT that they cause annoying vibration of the entire vehicle at highway speeds. I took the vehicle back to the installer. They rebalanced the tires but found no significant change from the original balance. I was told my wheels are not bent, and that the weights required to balance the wheels were not considered excessive. They thought the tires in the rear may have been the cause so they rotated them to the front. This made absolutely no difference. I doubt that I have 4 defective tires, but I can believe that the manufacturing tolerances for these tires do not meet OEM requirements. The Yokohama Avids that came from the factory wore out in 30,000 miles, but at least they rode smoothly. I'm very disappointed in these tires.

January 30, 2014

Thought it appropriate to write a review after managing through Snowmageddon in Atlanta on January 28, 2014. These tires are about 2 months old and replaced Yokohama Avid ENVigor's that were on the car when I bought it used about 15 months ago. To say these Primacy's are an upgrade over the Yokohama's is an understatement. The Yokohama's are VERY noisy, and had modest dry traction--especially cornering--and even worse wet traction, despite an aggressive tread pattern. The Michelin's are very quiet, comfortable sneakers for my G37S are even are more than admirable through spirited take-offs and cornering on wet and dry pavement here in the ATL. However, when challenged with our great snow/ice event this week, showed their vulnerabilities. Snow traction was fairly good (we only got 2"), but on the icy conditions beneath the snow, they were horrible. I managed to keep it out of ditches and off of bumpers and made it home unscathed, but without my northern, snow-driving capabilities (from PA), not sure I would have pulled it off (in a high-torque, rear-wheel drive, staggered fitment) without them! Love my Michelin's 363 days a year. But any more frozen stuff here in the ATL, and I'm not sure they would be the choice. So, if you are reading this from anywhere above the Mason-Dixon, you may want to think differently!

I have been extremely pleased with this tire purchase. I have had them on my 08 Maxima for about a year and a half and now considering them for my Honda CRV. They excel in tread life, and both wet and dry handling. I have about 8/32 tread left after 20-k miles. Not bad for 18" 45 series tires. The only slight complaint is that they did begin to hum at about 15-k miles. The hum is tolerable considering the wear and handling. I rotate and check pressure every 5-7-k miles. These tires provide much more confidence than the OEM Goodyear RSAs, however, I did get 47-k miles out of the Goodyear's. I would buy the Yokos again.

Trying these tires out on my Odyssey Touring (changed the OE wheel/tire combo to some Acura MDX wheels & regular tires). Previous set of regular tires were Bridgestone Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza's. These Yokohama's have given me better steering response and overall grip in both wet & dry conditions. Road noise is only slightly worse than the Bridgestones. Treadlife will not be as good as the Bridgestones (I got over 50,000 miles on the Bridgestones; I'm thinking these Yokohama's might not make 40,000). I've also noticed a drop in my overall fuel economy (usually 22 mpg w/ the Bridgestones, around 20.5 with these Yoko's).

Overall a good tire that gives a nice, sporty feel. I may end up going back to the Bridgestones when these wear out, though I'm not 100% sure about that at this point.

Mostly would like to comment on winter performance of this tire. This rear wheel drive car is not noted for great winter performance and up until now I was afraid to take it out of my driveway in winter weather. Put 2 RT43s on the rear drive wheels and now this car is my go to vehicle in winter weather. We have had 3 major storms and these tires have pushed this car thru snow,snow covered ice, ice , and frozen slush. They have also pushed this car up snow covered hills from a standing start. I have Yokohama avids on a Grand Marquis and they have stranded me in a snow storm. The Tire Rack survey on the Yokohama avid is accurate on its poor winter performance. The RT43s have exceeded my expectations and would like to say this is about as good as it gets for winter performance from an all season tire.

I've owned a lot of cars and a lot of different tires: Michelin, Dunlop, Continental, Pirelli, Semperit, Bridgestone, Falken, Goodyear, BF Goodrich, Firestone, Uniroyal. The only tires I've ever owned that were a close match to these were a set of Semperit M-401's I owned back in the late 70's. I put these tires on my front drive Volvo S60. I drive fairly hard and I have yet to get a squeal out of these on a curve on dry pavement. The car is like it's on rails. Very solid on wet roads where they feel almost as secure as on dry pavement. I've experienced no indication of hydroplaning. They will lose traction a bit when starting up quickly on wet pavement, but squeal almost like they would on dry pavement when doing so. We've been having a bit of a wild winter here in the mid-atlantic and I've gotten caught out in some fairly substantial snow several times over the past few weeks. A couple of times I've had to stop on steep hills behind other cars that have gotten stuck. In every case I've been able to wait for traffic to clear and drive right around the stuck car(s) with little effort, at times having to use the uncleared shoulder to get through. They aren't snow tires, but they're darned close. These replaced a set of Michelins and I've seen no noticeable change in fuel economy, but the car noticeably rides and handles better. Compared to the Michelins they replaced these tires seem to ride more smoothly over small imperfections, but slighty more harshly over large bumps and potholes. They are very quiet. I'm not able to rate tread life as I've only had them for a couple of thousand miles, but I am so impressed that I wanted to get this review out on the web for the benefit of others. Highly recommended.

 

Dunlop SP Sport Signature Still a Top Choice in the High Performance All-Season Category

Wednesday, September 11, 2013 by Gary Stanley

With tire technology advancing quickly these days, it's rare to find a model of tire that stands the test of time and remains competitive in its category year after year. First introduced over six years ago, the Dunlop SP Sport Signature is one of those tires. Even after this many years, it continues to hold its own against newer tires in the High Performance All-Season category. If you're looking for a great all-season performance tire at a good price, the Dunlop SP Sport Signature is for you!

With over 2.6 million miles reported, the tire is currently ranked third in our survey results. This is a higher ranking than other popular tires including the Yokohama AVID ENVigor, Goodyear Eagle GT and BFGoodrich g-Force Super Sport A/S. The SP Sport Signature is often praised for its good road feel, quick steering response and great combination of wet and dry traction. 

Take a look at what some of our customers are saying about their experience with the Dunlop SP Sport Signature:

"These have been such fantastic tires that I am now on my third set. Great dry weather traction and awesome treadwear. I have been very pleased with these tires." -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2003 Infiniti G35 Sedan

"These tires handle great. I have almost no road noise and they handle great on wet pavement. Even with my aggressive driving habits they wore perfectly. They were a great buy for the money." -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 2001 Lexus ES300

"The Dunlops have transformed my car. I've gone from such noise to such quiet and smooth riding and handling. For a car with 280,000 miles on it, the difference is astounding. I'm very happy with the purchase of these tires." -- Tire Rack Consumer Review, 1998 Honda Accord Coupe EX V6

Are Yokohama Tires Good?

Wednesday, August 14, 2013 by Colin .

Yokohama has been around for many years and makes very good options to fulfill your tire replacement needs.

In the Max Performance Summer category, they recently introduced the ADVAN Sport V105. It's developed for the drivers of high-powered sports cars, sporty coupes and performance sedans who want an increase in agile handling with a more comfortable ride. Based on technology fostered through participation in motorsports and development at the Nurburgring Circuit in Germany (one of the world's most grueling race/test tracks), the tire is designed to promote dry traction and handling.

If you're shopping for something a bit more extreme, then take a look at the ADVAN Neova AD08 R. It's Yokohama's latest Extreme Performance Summer offering and provides an even higher level of dry traction and handling, while giving up some treadlife and ride quality compared to the ADVAN Sport V105.  

If you are looking for an all-season option that offers sporty handling, the AVID ENVigor is available in H- or V- and W-speed ratings. While the tire doesn't offer the high traction and handling attributes of summer tires, it'll last longer and give you some winter traction versatility.

Another all-season option to consider is the AVID TOURING-S. This Standard Touring All-Season tire is developed for the drivers of coupes, sedans and minivans and is engineered to provide good traction, excellent ride qualities and long treadlife.  

For those of you who own a truck, crossover or sport utility vehicle, Yokohama offers the Parada Spec-X. Based on survey results, the tire is rated number one by consumers in the Street/Sport Truck All-Season category. Two additional light truck/SUV tires worth considering, include the Geolandar H/T-S G051 and Geolandar A/T-S

Which Yokohama Family Suits You Best?

Thursday, August 1, 2013 by Neal O'Neal

Yokohama tires were introduced to the United States in 1969, but have been produced since 1917. Personally, I've been using their products since 1998. There are three basic families of Yokohama tires: ADVAN, AVID and Geolanders.

ADVAN

The ADVAN line was introduced to the U.S. market in 2005 and has been widely popular and successful in the performance world. Their newest member is the ADVAN Neova AD08 R which resides in the Extreme Performance Summer class. The AD08 R combines excellent dry traction with impressive wet traction for that warm weather driver who demands fast and fun driving.

AVID

AVID tires stand tall with the AVID ENVigor and AVID Ascend. The AVID ENVigor combines the feel and handling of a sport tire with a touch of all-season capability. It works very well for performance based drivers who require four season traction. A new tire to the AVID family, the Ascend, combines long treadwear, low rolling resistance and all-season traction for those who place more emphasis on ride comfort and treadwear.

Geolandar

Finally, Geolandar tires fulfill the needs of light truck and SUV owners. The Geolandar H/T-S G051 has been widely popular and affordable since its debut in 2002. It appeals to the light duty pick-up truck and SUV owner looking for a more comfortable ride, handling and year-round traction.

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!

Best Tires for the Honda Fit

Wednesday, May 29, 2013 by Steve Huffman

Is it time to get your Honda Fit outfitted with new tires? Since 2007, the Fit has been a great choice for commuters, students and many drivers looking for dependable transportation while not breaking the bank. These fuel-efficient compact cars are very sporty, attractive and popular. Whether you've had your Honda for many years or just picked one up used, it may be time for some new tires.

The Fit is available with several tire size options. Unfortunately, there's not one great tire that will cover all four sizes available. For those of you with the 185/55R16 size, the best tire would be the Yokohama AVID Ascend. This is a Grand Touring All-Season tire with above average all-season traction and a 75,000-mile treadlife warranty. However, you may want to consider changing sizes, due to the limited tires available in this size.

Fit owners can also use 205/50R16 tires as an alternative. It's a little wider and you may see a slight drop in fuel economy, but you will experience better wet and dry traction, improved handling and a better selection of tire options. One of the better selections in this size includes the Continental ExtremeContact DWS. This best seller has great all-season traction, a 55,000-mile treadlife warranty and handles very well.

If your Honda fit is equipped with 195/55R15 tires, take a look at the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum. This Grand Touring All-Season is very nice to drive on. It offers pleasant ride qualities and reasonable tread noise.

For Fits with the 175/65R14 tire, I would consider the Michelin Defender. This is a fantastic tire with superior all-season traction with a 90,000-mile treadlife warranty. It's designed to enhance fuel economy by meeting Michelin's Green-X low rolling resistance objectives.

Finally, in the 175/65R15 size, take a look at the General AltiMAX HP. The tire is designed to combine reliability, comfort and treadlife, as well as provide year-round traction, including in light snow.

I bought these tires for their price and decent reviews. It is a great tire in the winter and after 20,000 miles the tread has been great for this past snowy winter in Mpls. I think my mpg has reduced a little compared to the OE Goodyear RS-As, but the winter traction has been impressive as well as the amount of tread still left after 20k miles. For a similar vehicle (hatchback, small SUV, etc.) I would purchase again.
