Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG51v

These tires met and exceeded all reasonable expectations over the Winter past which saw a much higher than normal amount of snow on the roads from hard snow pack to iced intersections, deep new fallen heavy snow (wet & dry) and extreme cold where road salt was entirely ineffective. All-in-all it was a bitter, long and snowy season best forgotten but...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

Best set of tires i have owned in several years. I replaced a set of Michelin Primacy and what a difference. I have not had them in the snow yet but wet and dry conditions, the tires performed better than any Michelin, Yokohama, Sumitomo or Kumho tire. Not sure about the in-tread designators - we will see. I wonder what makes a set of tires better for one...  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 iceGUARD iG52c

What I first noticed about the IceGuard tire is how great it is on hard packed snow. It really grips during cornering and stopping, the car handles predictably on the roads that are not plowed so well. Secondly, this tire is as quiet or quieter than my all season tires when driving on dry pavement and I'm still getting decent mpgs.I was happy to see that it...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta LX Platinum

Sadly, this car was lost in a recent flood, so we did not have time to really put these tires through all of their paces. Nonetheless, this Kumho set exceeded my expectations. They were far better than the highly-overrated Michelins they replaced, which rode hard and had poor grip (typical of Michelin--they came with the car when we bought it). The Kumho...  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 iceGUARD iG51v

The Yokohamas proved their worth here in Buffalo during the worst winter storm since the Blizzard of '77. The truck didn't get stuck once driving across very icy roads with deep snow on very steep inclines. Driving in bumper high snow will work. Snow higher than that and you're going nowhere with any vehicle. When driving with relatively new original factory...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Parada Spec-X

Third set of tires for the very heavy Q7 TDI. Had been a Pirelli car but took a chance on these Yoke's .... Really love them! Wearing well and are a perfect new pair of shoes!!! Won't change ever! A great tire for the price   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG52c

Purchased these tires for my Prius Touring (I liked the regular tire size better than the touring so had them swapped to the 15in rims) while living in the PacNW for harsh winter driving to and from work. Tires were abused on logging roads,(yup went hunting in a prius and got funny looks from lifted truck drivers...) excelled in warm wet environments, and...  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 iceGUARD iG51v

These tires' sharp shoulders with cutting edges do an excellent job of cutting through windrifts both on unplowed four-lane highways and in the travelled lane of the country roads we have to negotiate where I live There is more resistance to crosswinds than with the Blizzaks, probably because the sidewall is notably stiffer.The tires are a little louder than...  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 Yokohama iceGUARD iG52c

I put these on as my winter set on my gen coupe and even though the car is not made for winter with these tires on its one of the beat winter cars I've had. They have amazing traction in snow even being wide low profile tires. Dry grip is also good, my only complaint is wet traction. If the roads are wet these things are like gliding on ice and the smallest...  Read More

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

We bought my wife a Forester in November of 2010. We had a pretty bad winter that year, and she complained that her car wasn't doing well in the snow. I looked up the Yokohama Geolandres that were the OEM tires, and was shocked to see the bad reviews. Picked up a set of these Pirellis from Tire Rack (based on the great reviews). Well. They just transformed...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG52c

We live in MN, so lots of cold months to test winter tires. I keep telling people that its not about 2WD/AWD/4WD - its about the tires. the GTI is a quick and nimble car and with winter tires on, I have seen it work better than all wheel drive, we also have a new Honda CRV which has AWD but has All season tires, on a snowy and icy day, I insist we take the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG52c

It's been a harsh winter. Sleet, ice,deep snow, roads covered in hard packed snow/ice, incredibly cold temperatures, basically a proper Canadian winter. These tires have handled it all without once letting me down even when other winter tire equipped cars struggle around me. Dry pavement performance has been very good. Significantly better on pavement than...  Read More

My old Michelin cracked on the side just after one year purchase car new, dealer said call Michelin, Michelin give me run around, and refuse to stand by their product. I will...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG52c

These are excellent tires for mixed winter conditions. The road to our local ski area climbs 3000+ feet in 16 miles of 2 lane curvy road from sagebrush desert to the pine forest. In the last two days, the road conditions include dry, wet, ice, wet snow, compacted snow, hard packed snow, and new snow on top of all of the above... Two cars rolled into the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG52c

I got these tires based on internet research I had to do because there were no reviews at the time. And I am extreamly happy I did get these tires. I drove 30 miles in the snow and these tires made it feel as if I was in the dry. The only time I slipped was in first gear up a hill from a complete stop. Once I changed gear to second the slip stopped and I...  Read More
