Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID TOURING-S

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...  Read More

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

Just got Yoko AVID ENVs to replace the Good year Eagle LS tires that came OEM on my Mitsu Outlander SUV. Man, what a huge difference! Road Noise is almost non-existent with these tires. What was Mitsu thinking putting the Good Year Eagle LS as OEM??? Those lasted just 33K miles and the tread was almost gone completely.Dry traction on Envigor is superb, you...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar G96B

Had this brand on my previous SUV was the worst for snow of the various tires I had, these came on my new 4Runner and I am not pleased with driving in the snow on the streets. I have not been off road much, tread wear has been fine, rain driving has been ok,   Read More

Goodyear Eagle GT (V-Speed Rated) Review

If you ask a random person to name a few tire brands off the top of their head, odds are one of the first to come to their mind is Goodyear. Goodyear tires come as Original Equipment on many makes and models of cars, trucks, SUVs and crossover vehicles. In addition to being one of most well-known brands worldwide, Goodyear makes some of the top tires on the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Parada Spec-X

I bought these based on the great reviews from other 3d Gen CR-V owners. I haven't encountered snow or even significant rain yet, but my wife, who didn't like the ride with my recently replaced Nokian WR-SUV's (not recommended), really likes the ride now. So far, so good. Much quieter ride, holds the road great. MPG is down, but I guess that's because these...  Read More

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

Strange noise in the corners, a whiney scrubbing sound. A year and a half and these tires on the grocery getter are done. Really fast wearing on my SUV.   Read More

Alternate 19" Tire Sizing for Dodge Journey Now Available

While the new Dodge Journey has been well received, one thing that hasn't been popular is the optional 19" tire size that comes equipped on many of the vehicles. While the Original Equipment options have done well, many Journey owners have been left wanting more.  In the 225/55R19 size, we recently added the Goodyear Assurance CS Fuel Max. It's designed to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi2

After over 15 years of exclusively 4WD vehicles we finally added a FWD family sedan. As we bought the car in the fall, I used Tire Rack's database to check the winter-worthiness of our OEM tires. The red and yellow winter ratings made me decide that we needed a second set of wheels with Winter tires mounted, just like I used to do with my sports cars in the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Parada Spec-X

These tires were terrible for my SUV and only lasted 1 year under normal driving conditions and regular maintenance. Indeed, when we checked recently, the edge was severely worn out. This is much worse than I'm used to seeing on a tire . We ended up replacing the Yokohamas with Michelin Latitudes. I've had better luck with Michelins in the past. Also, in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar A/T-S

MN winters- ice, snow & salt. We got a lot of snow the first winter I had these and they worked better than expected in the deep stuff. I remember pulling a lady to her business. Her car was high centered in the snow because the driveway to her business (and parking lot) wasn't plowed yet. I had no problems pulling her through about 10 inches of snow for...  Read More

Lessons Learned at the Arctic Circle: Testing All-Season Tires

Then you're better served by purchasing a set of all-season tires with decent light snow capability.  How do different all-season tires perform in the snow? Our test team has traveled to...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Parada Spec-X

I LOVE these tires! When I bought a used 2007 Mazda CX-9 a couple of years ago, the 20-inch OEM tires needed to be replaced immediately. I researched options on some Mazda forums and the Yokohama Parada Spec-X tires kept coming up, so I purchased a set. These have been the best tires on any car I've ever owned. The ride is luxurious, soft and surprisingly...  Read More

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

For my SUV this tire really has two personalities. It is a significant improvement over my OEM's (Bridgestones) which did fair to poor in every category. These tires are great in dry or wet, steering has sharpened up and is more direct and it gives you ton of confidence. Issue I have is road noise, at highway speed between 50-60mph I've never heard anything...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Parada Spec-X

I purchased these tires when upgrading my 2003 Chevrolet Trailblazer to the 20 rims. I have used Yokohama in the past and am consistently happy with the price/performance factor. These tires are wearing wonderfully, I do rotate them every 10,000 though. They are quiet, and not harsh riding, the sidewall has some give.It's an SUV- so as you could expect, I...  Read More

All-Terrain Tires for Your Subaru Outback and BMW X3

While the new Subaru Outback, BMW X3 and other mid-size SUVs are built for limited off-road duty, the 17" wheels that come from the factory all but eliminate the possibility of getting tires up to the challenge. The Original Equipment tires on most of these vehicles are built for a quiet and comfortable ride, but leave some yearning for more snow and...  Read More
