Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar A/T G015

I am on my second set of these on my forester. best tires I have ever owned. these on the forester are basically unstoppable in pretty much any on road driving condition. I live in the Chicago area and have dealt with a fair amount of snow and pot holes and hot summers. these tires have never giving me a single issue. I will continue buying these tires until...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG51v

These tires were a great investment thus far. I have driven in multiple snowstorms, through as much as 8 of snow, and down to snow covered ice / slush. These tires out-perform other winter tires I have purchased in the past. I have bought winter tires from just about every manufacturer out there and these are among the best - not to mention the price being...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

I live in the midwest in a state that is known for encountering quickly changing weather. I need to be prepared to drive in all types of weather conditions. Hot,cold, below zero temps,dry, wet, ice, light and deep snow, we get it all. I am a have been a huge Yokohama fan and was set to purchase some for my (new to me) '13 Azera. After much consideration,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Winter Sport 4D

I put these on my new 2016 Impreza (16x7 Moda rims) and so far they have been excellent in the couple of storms we've had in Denver. I've driven them out in the Summit county mountains over completely snow covered passes and they performed perfectly without hesitation. I was mainly concerned with noise and comfort and these perform as well if not better in...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG52c

this is an excellent set of winter tires and exactly what ive come to expect from yokohama. the tread material and design is quite good. these tires are smooth, and fairly quiet for a winter tire and performs excellent in the dry and rain. in light snow/medium snow, traction is very good and predictable but they seem to slide a bit in deep snow. treadwear...  Read More

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

Im not really savy in explaining the technicals of the tires but Im highly impressed! I had these Yokohama's Geolander AT/ S for a couple years now and I am an aggresive driver. Lets just say I believe in my tires until they let me down. These tires have not let me down yet! Living in Michigan I worried when hitting massive pot holes, yet they still handled...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN Neova AD08 R

I installed these tires on my M3 E92 on two occasions. First time they lasted 3,772 miles and were bald when I removed them. I complained to TireRack and they went the distance for me. Yokohama said the tires did not have a tread-wear warranty but agreed to give me one tire free. Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me I installed the new set...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar G91F

64k miles on these bad boys (lots of driving for work) and they're finally losing traction. Only problem I experienced was a screw puncture but you can hardly blame the tires for that. No complaints from me. Sticking with Yoko's for now; ordering Geolandar A/T-S before winter. Cheers   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Parada Spec-X

I purchased these Pirada SpecX's for my 2003 Murano solely based on the reviews I read here. I bought this vehicle new and they came stocked with Goodyear Eagles. Ride and traction and wear was average. I replaced them with a set of Michelins from Costco Tire. Wear and traction again average. The ride, not so much. They turned my SE into the ride of a pickup...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID TOURING-S

57,000 miles and these tires are getting toward the end of their life. They have been good, quiet and problem free. Pretty decent in wet weather, good in dry conditions and acceptable but nothing to brag about in snow even with an all wheel drive vehicle. I did slide into a ditch on level ground after tapping the brakes while driving slowly in very icy...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG52c

I purchased these tires for one winter (2015-2016) in the Denver metro area. Prior to this all my winter driving was in the California Sierras using all-season M+S tires. I was *very* happy we put on these winter tires for our time in Colorado because with them I had no worries about the road conditions and felt free to head to the mountains in anything but...  Read More

Best Tires for 2014 Subaru Outback

Out on the road today, it’s hard to drive far without seeing an Outback. In fact, Subaru vehicles in general have become very popular amongst outdoor enthusiasts, as well as families. With the generous cargo capacity, all-time AWD and off-road performance, this vehicle is going to be in your garage for several years. But when it’s time to replace the...  Read More

Ready or Not Winter 2017 is Coming

Last winter definitely started out slowly, but eventually January came round and winter got serious. Are you living in the snowbelt and wondering how bad the winter of 2017 is going to be? Nobody really knows, but we do know it's coming. Do you need to run winter / snow tires? If you're in a region that normally averages over a foot of snow, you should...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender

Anyone that drives a CR-V knows that it needs quiet tires to be a quiet vehicle. That said, I have tried three different brands on my CR-V over the years and the Michelin Defenders are by far the quietest of all of them. The Goodyear Assurance tires were awful. They rode horribly and had a constant moaning sound that drove me crazy. I then tried Yokohama...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I just purchased these tires last week for use on my moderately modified 2002 Mazda Protege. These tires are incredibly quiet for a snow tire and they roll beautifully. In fact, they feel very similar to the Michelin Energy Saver A/S tires that I use on one of my other cars, a Toyota Prius. The X-ice Xi3 is the BEST overall snow tire in the heavy snow/ice...  Read More

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

As others have noted, this tire is narrow, which I wasn't expecting. You have to be careful not to damage your wheels, since they are more exposed with this narrow tire. The tires handle well, and the road noise is minimal.Compared to the Goodyear OEM tires on the Maxima, they are quieter, but the rolling resistance must be higher. I could tell...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Grandtrek SJ6

I live in the hills of western MA, where we get quite a bit of snow and ice. So I bought these Dunlop Grandtrek SJ6's in P205/70R16 mounted on plain steel 16 wheels for my Crosstrek for winter. They are just a tad taller and narrower than the stock P225/55R17 Yokohamas. No rubbing issues at all, and in the snow, my crosstrek is unstoppable. They are really...  Read More

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
