Yokohama AVID Ascend (H- or V-Speed Rated)
Initial Review: 16,000 miles on tires
December 27, 2013

Trying these tires out on my Odyssey (changed the OE wheel/tire combo to some Acura MDX wheels). Previous set of regular tires were Bridgestone Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza's. These Yokohama's have given me better steering response and overall grip in both wet & dry conditions. Road noise is only slightly worse than the Bridgestones. Treadlife will not be as good as the Bridgestones (I got over 50,000 miles on the Bridgestones; I'm thinking these Yokohama's might not make 40,000). I've also noticed a drop in my overall fuel economy (usually 22 mpg w/ the Bridgestones, around 20.5 with these Yoko's).

Overall a good tire that gives a nice, sporty feel. I may end up going back to the Bridgestones when these wear out, though I'm not 100% sure about that at this point.
