Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama S.drive

I bought a set for my 2012 Malibu along with H&R lowering springs and KYB shocks. I love these tires with my suspension set up. I drive my car hard and the S-Drives keep my big car planted when I'm cornering hard (100+kms) Great wet and dry traction. Will definitely be hitting tire rack up again for another set!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin LTX M/S2

Having had both the OEM and Yokohama Geolanders for the Pilot - I have nearly 140,000 miles on it and am the original owner - these are by far the best tires I have ever had on this car, or for that matter, any car. Driving in NJ to work 46 miles round trip, combination highway and local roads. Through last winter in particular, the traction especially on...  Read More

A New Look for Your MR2 Spyder

Name a fun, affordable and reliable mid-engine car? Sounds like a trick question, but the 2000-2005 Toyota MR2 Spyder hits that rare trifecta. WHEEL DIAMETER As you look at Spyder wheel options, you'll see wheels ranging in diameter from 15"-18". Although the Spyder can run 15", 16", 17" and 18" wheels, staying with a 15" wheel allows for broader tire...  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 S.drive

I got the Yokohama S. Drive in December of 2011. It is now August 2014 and they need to be replaced (which I will be doing in October. These are great if you're on a budget and/ or like to test out different tires. I drive an 04 Mini Cooper S and these tires grip amazingly well when they are warm. Most people don't get this warm concept and usually spin out...  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 ADVAN Sport A/S

Picked a good week for new tires. I've been thru three rain storms (major soakers) and the new Advan A/S's have performed brilliantly --- even at speeds probably a bit higher than you should be going in heavy rain. Not once has the car felt anything other than planted --- even thru standing water. I'm hopeful that performance in the snow will be similar.I...  Read More

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 Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

Camry 2007 LE V6 Before i install these Pirelli P7 Cint. A/S plus i had Yokohama Envigor high performance (H rated)(when i buy this car 1 month ago) not good not bad tire.....ride a bid hard & noisy a bit. ( HR) Dont know why Toyota suggest a V or S speed rate......it's not a BMW or sports car.In Canada ( Qu├ębec)speed limit is lower than USA!!!!!!!! . Why...  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
