Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P4 Four Seasons Plus

Bought these tires forma box store two years ago to replace a set of Yokohama Avid Touring tires S (also an nice touring tire). I think the Pirellis perform better, (a little squeal on sharp fast turns) I gentle reminder that I need to ease up.These perform a lot better on turns and emergency turns. The stopping distances have slightly reduced. At almost...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

After driving for 5 years on Yokohama YK580's, I finally looked into a different tire. I did not realize what a difference a tire could make. With the Yokohama's, this vehicle slips and slides, the traction control barely worked. After having these Blizzaks installed, my vehicle was a totally different animal. I am an aggressive driver, and these tires make...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Winter Maxx

I spent way too long looking at winter tire options, and tireracks' website was by far the most useful.Regarding the Winter Maxx, I liked the reports of good tread wear and general all-round high marks for this tire, combined with the price. (There was a rebate going on.) I purchased the tires with new black steel wheels and had them mounted/balanced by...  Read More

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

These tires replaced original equipment Goodyear Assurance ComforTred Touring at 70,000 miles. Dry road handling is very good, although not as quite as tight as I would like them, about on par with the Goodyears. They have a very smooth ride. I've had absolutely no sliding or hyroplaning on wet roads. I'm a little disappointed with the noise levels, they are...  Read More

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

Had the first large snow of the season, 6-8 deep and powdery at first followed by ice on top and now rain.These tires have performed as expected in most areas as they are highway all season tires. Ice traction is great as is the traction on packed down snow. But I would have expected a bit more traction on the slushy ice and the powdery snow than what I got....  Read More

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

I purchased these tires to replace a set of dependable Michelins, but since my needs for this vehicle have changed, I decided to try the Yokohamas. I have only had them for a short time, but they recently faced a 2' snow storm here in Boston and handled it easily. They are quiet and comfortable on the highway, and sure-footed on rough surfaces. I am...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama S.drive

Best tire for the price issued for my vehicle. Depending on the treadwear of this specific tire I will most likely purchase them again as there is no compromise in performance handling, braking or acceleration.   Read More

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

Replaced the OEM tires(made in China w/treadwear=340)with these Yokohama Avid Ascend which interestingly are sourced from U.S.A. Very pleased with the tire's smooth quiet ride and good response to driver input. I changed tires for greater safety in today's traffic situations and road conditions. Yokohama Avid Ascend certainly measures up anddoes so at a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Destination LE 2

These tires are awesome! I'm driving a 97 4Runner. It had Yokohama Geolanders. Bought the truck used with the Yoko's. I liked those tires and was going to replace with the same until I read the reviews on the LE2.The roads have been awful between Chicago and SW Michigan. Snow, ice, slush, smooth and everything in between. I noticed my old tires were...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG52c

I live in central NY where we average 120 inches of snow/year. Further, I live up on a hill whwre the climb is 350 feet in about 1/2 mile. In the past, I have always run Blizzaks which were excellent. But after some research, I decided to try the Ice Guard iG52c, and I am very impressed. These tires are very popular in Canada, and it seems that was their...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG52c

These tires grip and grip being my first set of winter tires I am impressed at just how well they drive compared to my all season, their not as quick to respond dry roads but they ride way better the noise level isn't bad these are quieter than my all seasons. Wet driving is awesome with these tires water puddles in the road feel like nothings there wish my...  Read More

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

From the time I put this set of tires on my Cherokee I got 3 more mpg, the tread is starting to get weak but with 90k on this set they will still make a set of used tires for someone. the noise was a lot less when I first bought them, but it isn't that bad now. I just drove about 1000 miles round trip on vacation the other week and noise was ok. We have had...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

Amazing grip in lousy conditions. Excel on ice. Very predictable. The best snow tire I have ever had and that list includes Bridgestone Blizzak, Pirelli Scorpion, Yokohama, Goodyear. And the best part is that they are extremely quiet. Something rare for a snow tire. I followed the recommendation of the TR rep and he didn't lead me astray. Can't beat TR for...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID Ascend (T-Speed Rated)

I bought these tires to replace the nearly worn out Turanza EL400s that came on my used CRV. The EL400s were terrible. Hydroplaned constantly and quite noisy. These Yokahamas are fantastic! Living in the Mid-Atlantic region I've had quite a winter to test these guys! Light snow traction is excellent and deep snow traction is very good. I've been able to get...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Parada Spec-X

I wanted a tire that would do well in snow, ice and wet conditions. Even though I might not get the mileage that the tire is to get, per other reviews, I figured that this because the softer the rubber, the better on ice. As for noise, not much except a little loud when the road is rough due to winter salt.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar H/T G95A

Unbelievable... Living in the mountains of western NC, offers challenging road conditions totally unrelated to weather (weather also). I have a 2010 Subaru Forester and she is getting ready for new slippers. I would never dream of putting another slipper on her. Why? Thank you Yokohama...   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar G91A

2013 Mazda CX-5 56k miles with no problems. Replaced with less expensive Continental TrueContact. Geolander turned better, tracked better. Maybe not as good in standing water but didn't notice that until later in their life.   Read More

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

Originally used the AVID V4S--absolutely awesome entry level sport tire (discontinued). I switched to this tire because it was developed from the V4S. It's not as good in my opinion, but has excellent traits.The low rolling resistance technology incorporated is great for commuting, ok for track use--the sidewalls appear to be a bit soft. Still provides more...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID TOURING-S

These have proven outstanding tires. They have 30k+ miles on them and well more than 1/2 tread left. We live in the rainy PNW and at the foot of the Cascade mountains. They handle dry summer roads well. Our wet fall and winters, with steady constant rain, really test tires. They have never shown a weak point and channel water well providing great wet...  Read More
