Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama S.drive

I've 4800+ miles on these tires, including a road trip from Ohio to Flyin' Miata's Summer Camp in western Colorado & running around the hills of southern Ohio. Great steering response, excellent wet weather performance, good dry weather handling, though my standard here is an STi set up for Solo II on Dunlops. Short of an all-out performance tire, I'm quite...  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 Parada Spec-X

My last 3 sets have been Parada Spec-X. It's a great tire for the cost and the performance is more than acceptable. They are quite until about 45K miles, (time for new ones) but you must keep them rotated.   Read More

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

I'm on my second set! First set drove true to 45K life. Performed roight to the very end. I LOVE these tires for my Infiniti EX35 AWD Journey. I will buy again and I will buy them from Tire Rack. Happy camper.   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 Geolandar A/T-S

BEST TIRE EVER! Seriously, I've tried many different tires from BFG, Goodyear, Interco, and the like, and no ONE tire performs better at everything than this tire.Need to walk a curb? No problem. The enhanced silica sidewall simply does not scuff. These tires stick like glue when you are at full tilt on a cloverleaf on-ramp to the interstate, but wear...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar H/T G056

These tires were installed during a cold rainy day at the end of Oct. First reactions were smooth, quiet in the wet, and above average grip in both acceleration and braking. The next few days were dry and clear and still the tires performed well above my expectations. Very comfortable and quiet. Bare in mind, I changed from a Continental LX20 (not an AT...  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

This tire is simply amazing. This was our first purchase of an Ultra High Performance All Season tire and I believe we made a great choice. We bought the tires as we needed some traction on our 2006 BMW 330i. We did not want to invest in a new four wheel drive or front wheel drive vehicle. Well two snow storms in, these tires have met the challenge. This...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama S.drive

for the first 3,000 miles they were quiet, but at around 4,000 miles on san jose freeways, they can get noisy and transmit a lot of noise in the M3's cabin freeway speeds, on certain not smooth roads. I would say they are 75% performance of a michelin super sport 225/45/17 and 75% of the cost. S. Drives will hydroplane initially and then find the road. And...  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 Geolandar H/T G056

3000 miles on the G056 so far and they have performed very good in dry, wet and wintery conditions. Very acceptable road noise that actually improved after the first 500 miles . They drive very straight in the dry and wet even at highway speeds unlike the wandering all terrain tires I replaced. I consider it a very good 70 thousand mile tire at a great price   Read More

You Can Get All-Terrain Tires for the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8

It's notoriously difficult to find tires for the original Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8. Staggered sizing and short sidewalls means very few choices, and none of those choices are intended for serious off-road use. And while most SRT8 owners don't plan to venture off the road, a Jeep is still a Jeep! There is always some temptation to head for adventure off 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

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 AVID TOURING-S

After a year on these tires , they still look new. I am amazed how ell they have performed ion all driving situations so far. I will buy these again.   Read More

What's the Best All-Season Tire for Ice and Snow?

All-season tires are a great option for many drivers. They are suitable for drivers who live in an area that receives occasional light snow, and/or freezing temperatures a few times throughout the year. Some all-season tires, such as the Continental ExtremeContact DWS, even provide above average snow capabilities that are a benefit in winter months. However,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Kumho Ecsta PA31

This tire far exceeds my expectations, particularly when the price is considered. The comfort and quietness of these tires is really outstanding. The wet and dry performance is at least equal to the Toyo and General all seasons I have had on this car in the past. The winter performance is way better than previous tires. It handles so well in snow and ice...  Read More
