Whether you're looking at touring tires for the family...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID TOURING-S

These are absolutely excellent tires for the price, and I'd recommend them for nearly any normal vehicle. I've had several sets of different Yokohama tires, and have enjoyed every single one of them (including AS530, various AVID and Geolander truck tires). These AVID Touring-S tires have been perfect for 60,544 trouble free miles so far as of today. I'm...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar I/T G072

I have 4 of these dedicated snow tires on my '08 Subaru Tribeca whenmost of my contemporaries run All Season tires. I have a very short steep driveway and live in the southern Allegheny region of Central Pennsylvania. My driveway also has a northern exposure so it does not melt as quickly as someof my neighbors driveways do. i have great confidence in the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar I/T G072

Put a set on the truck in Jan '13. Use the truck in the winter to get to my cabin in BC from Alberta. Traction & steering has been excellent whether on the highway, secondary or forestry roads. I have as much confidence in these tires as the studded hakka's on my car. There is a bit of a drop in mpg over the summer A/T's but it's worth it when they keep me...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar H/T-S G053

I've read everyone's reviews, most of you should not share your thoughts. I have had these tires on all my GMC trucks, 2001 3/4 ton 2wd: 2004,2005,2006 1 ton 4 door dually: and 2006 1 tone SRW. Hard ride yes, its a 10 ply. These tires are awesome in wet conditions, no pulling, no hydroplaning, just great. In the snow awesome, pulling a 48' goose neck...  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 iG51v

These tires met and exceeded all reasonable expectations over the Winter past which saw a much higher than normal amount of snow on the roads from hard snow pack to iced intersections, deep new fallen heavy snow (wet & dry) and extreme cold where road salt was entirely ineffective. All-in-all it was a bitter, long and snowy season best forgotten but...  Read More

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

Lots of miles on these tires. First off, excellent price. You can spend a ton more and you won't see much better in terms of a nice all terrain that can do a bit of everything well. Highway driving is quiet and hassle free. Wet conditions in the Northwest the tire handles extremely well. Black Ice- bad stuff. Tires appear to grip well. that combined with ABS...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Assurance TripleTred All-Season

At 40k, I replaced the stock Yokohama Geolanders with Assurance Triple Tred All-Seasons. The Yokohama's still had 7/32, but at about 30k, I started having hydroplaning and noise issues. Also, last winter, the snow/ice traction had noticeably decreased. With a baby on the way, and winter approaching, I wanted a safe tire for my family. Coupled with the...  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 Yokohama iceGUARD iG51v

The Yokohamas proved their worth here in Buffalo during the worst winter storm since the Blizzard of '77. The truck didn't get stuck once driving across very icy roads with deep snow on very steep inclines. Driving in bumper high snow will work. Snow higher than that and you're going nowhere with any vehicle. When driving with relatively new original factory...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG52c

Purchased these tires for my Prius Touring (I liked the regular tire size better than the touring so had them swapped to the 15in rims) while living in the PacNW for harsh winter driving to and from work. Tires were abused on logging roads,(yup went hunting in a prius and got funny looks from lifted truck drivers...) excelled in warm wet environments, and...  Read More

Big Savings on Big Snow Tires

If you have a lifted 4x4 truck, Jeep or SUV with 35" mud tires, you may think you're ready for the worst conditions, but you're not. Four-wheel drive will obviously help you accelerate and ground clearance will help with deeper snow, however your mud tires are holding you back.  In order to have great snow grip, a tire must have the right compound, and...  Read More

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

I don't usually write reviews on things but I felt I should on these tires. I went from BFG rugged trails to the Yokohama. There is no comparison. The Yokohama made the truck feel brand new. Very smooth and quiet on the highway, no road noise at all. Its been snowing a lot the past few weeks and I've been in the middle of the storms going to work.These tires...  Read More

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

We bought my wife a Forester in November of 2010. We had a pretty bad winter that year, and she complained that her car wasn't doing well in the snow. I looked up the Yokohama Geolandres that were the OEM tires, and was shocked to see the bad reviews. Picked up a set of these Pirellis from Tire Rack (based on the great reviews). Well. They just transformed...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG52c

We live in MN, so lots of cold months to test winter tires. I keep telling people that its not about 2WD/AWD/4WD - its about the tires. the GTI is a quick and nimble car and with winter tires on, I have seen it work better than all wheel drive, we also have a new Honda CRV which has AWD but has All season tires, on a snowy and icy day, I insist we take the...  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 Yokohama Geolandar A/T-S

I have bought three sets of these for my Duramax. This truck is a 500 hp sleeper. These tires have held up better than any other tire I have purchased. Dry traction is great for hole shots. Wet traction, well not as great with the horse power. They do well in snow and wear evenly. I have recommended these to my friends who also love them on there 4x4's. I do...  Read More

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

If you're hesitatating to buy a set of these don't be. Upgraded from a set of Goodyears and it feels like a completely different truck. Handles superbly in rain, ice, slush, mud and the like. I have to gun it to lose traction in a couple inches of water. The worst they've performed so far is after 6 inches of snow with the roads unplowed and unsalted. For an...  Read More
