Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG52c

I use these tires all year round. They are vastly superior to the original tires in nearly every regard and every road condition. Plus, the tires are great on snow and ice! They even last as long as the original all-season tires! And at the Tire Rack price, you can't beat them!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama S.drive

I put a set of these on my '85 Mazda RX7 with a 12a Rotary engine making about 100hp. A 205/50R16 is a big upgrade from the OEM 185/65R13 they mounted on this car in the '80s. Around the same time I also upgraded to Racing Beat springs and larger front and rear sway bars. I'm using the car to commute and attend track nights and it is a blast. Road noise...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN Sport A/S

I purchased these for my 2013 Mercedes S550 sport package with 20 AMG Wheels. So far they appear to have a very quiet, comfortable ride and don't feel as jarring or harsh over NJ road surfaces as my previous Michelin Pilot A/S 3 tire's. They feel good as far as high performance handling goes as I'm a spirited driver who leaves my car in sport mode...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TrueContact

UPDATE to April 2010 rating from Colorado Springs, CO. These tires have been great. Now that I have some miles on them have noticed the following observations. Increased mileage and quiter ride over the Yokohamas. Looking forward to see how they wear and live up to their 80K treadware warranty. I would purchase them again and will put them on my other...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Super Sport

On both of my Evos (2011 and 2015) I replaced the OEM Yokohamas with the Pilot Super Sports. The grip was not *quite* as good as the Yokos (their grip level was astonishing) but it was close, and the tire life was double. I got about 30k on both sets of pilot SS's, compared to less than 15k on the Yokos. Warning in an AWD sports car: ROTATE RELIGIOUSLY AT 5K...  Read More

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

I bought these Pirelli Cinturato P7 to replace the stock Yokohamas, which were fine, but fairly worn by 37k. The Pirellis are a bit smoother and quieter and after 30k, still have a lot of life in them. They ride smooth and quiet, good in the wet. Handling is great too. I didn't notice a reduction in fuel consumption which Pirelli touts. I live in the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

Although the car is a 2015, I just took delivery 2 weeks ago. Got a fantastic deal. These tires are OE. I figured I'd keep track on here from the onset. Since I've never driven on this brand before, I was predicting I might swap them immediately after delivery for the same Yokohama Advan Sport A/S' I put on our other car and LOVE them. So far, they ride...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ (W- or Y-Speed Rated)

From the moment I had these tires put on my car I noticed a significant difference in handling compared to the yokohamas I previously had. Even though my car is far from being a sports car I feel like I can throw my car into turns I otherwise would not attempt with a lesser set of rubber. These tires are going on my wife's car once her stocks have worn down...  Read More

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

It is somewhat difficult to distinguish the performance benefits of these tires from those of permanent AWD. A set of Yokohama ENVigor ultra high performance all-season tires, which preceded the current set of Cinturato P7 All Season Plus tires, provides the primary benchmark by which comparison may be drawn.Winter Storm Jonas of 2016 was a challenge for...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN Sport A/S

Just put these on my 300C Hemi, wow am I impressed. I replaced the OE Firestone's with these and saved $170.00 but I feel got a much better tire. I only have 500 miles on them but they balanced perfectly, steering response is nice and ride quality is impressive. Snowy ride into work this morning was uneventful. I will update after a few thousand miles.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar G055

I have had this tire on my vehicle for about 8200 miles. I have driven in wet--flooding conditions as well as dry conditions, and I have had no problems. I have driven in wet grass--almost muddy, and I have not had a problem. I have not driven in snow yet, but that will be coming soon. I put these tires on at the end of March, and it is not the end of...  Read More

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

My car is a hybrid, I drive nearly 4,000 miles every month for my business, and I care most about durability and reliability. I have gone through two sets of these tires, and, unbelievably, each set has lasted nearly 90,000 miles. Granted, my car is lighter than most, and I drive conservatively most of the time, because in order for me to earn a living I...  Read More

Tires and Wheels for 2017 FIAT 124 Spyder

Start with the ND Miata chassis, sprinkle in some retro Italian style, pop in a 1.4 liter turbocharged Multiair engine and you've got the 2017 FIAT 124 Spyder! With Italian styling and reliability, FIAT has created the perfect summer roadster. Want to add a little more Italian styling to the vehicle? Well, that's easy. Just add a set of wheels from O.Z....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Eagle Sport All-Season (W-Speed Rated)

Researched the quietest tire for my 2007 LS 460 here on TR. Then looked for the most aggressive tire from there. I live in Dallas, Tx and we get 4 seasons and all conditions but mostly hot summers but with no extremes other than that. These tires at the time did not have many reviews. I noticed they were quieter than the previous owner's Yokohamas and no...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

This review is about the DWS 06 but I've also had the earlier DWS on all 3 family cars. I loved the DWS but the DWS 06 does seem to be a worthy upgrade. Live in Massachusetts and drive to the mountains in northern NY (Adirondacks) quite a lot too. Absolutely no problem getting around in wet/dry/mild snow in MA - but I do swap on real snows for the mountains...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN A11A

These tires came OEM on my new Miata and so far they have confirmed Mazda's choice. I'm retired so no commuting is involved; I mostly drive the car for fun on weekdays when my favorite Texas Hill Country roads are empty and inviting. They allow me to drive deep into corners without fear that they'll let go at an inappropriate moment. This is my second Miata,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk Indy 500

I did about a months worth of research trying to find the right tire for my speed3. My car is upgraded and is pushing 300whp and 330wtq. I was having issues with traction in 3rd gear on dry pavement with my Yokohama YK580's and the wet was almost a joke! So long story short, after video after video and review after review, i stumbled on these tires just a...  Read More

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

I replaced the tires which were on the car when I bought it. Before, the ride and noise was unacceptable, and now the tires make it ride like a different car altogether. I don't regret the decision to purchase these tires.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I have a set in my Acura RSX. I had Goodyear Eagle's before these tires. Those tires were horrible in the rain, always hydroplaned. I have about 5,000miles on these tires and I love them. I have had many different tires in the past (Falken, Kumo's, Yokohama, Goodyears), these are by far the quietest. So far I have only positives to say about this tire. I am...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Parada Spec-X

Replaced a set of Goodyear LS-2's with the Yokohama Parada Spec-X's. Have 8,000 miles on them and so far, they are just awesome. Road noise is very minimal and they are extremely great handling in dry or wet conditions. Also like the look on a Touareg. Very stylish. Unknown how many miles I will get out of these, but at $150/tire, I am good here. Great tire...  Read More
