Yokohama AVID ENVigor (H- or V-Speed Rated)
Follow-Up Review: 5,000 miles on tires
Since purchasing, have put on close to 5000miles including a few long road trips. Traction and wet/light snow has been excellent. I measured the wear and i can now see signs of wear. I don't know if the 560 rating on these tires is accurate but compared to my michelin hydroedge which have a rating of 800 i can definately see the difference. I would estimate perhaps 3 years of life total on these tires with my current driving volume and style. I am very happy with these tires for light snow performance and general handling for the price. We will be taking a long road trip in January which will be about 1 year so we'll see if they handle the same as last time when I drove to PA to get them.
Initial Review: 200 miles on tires
bought these tires throgh tirerack and had them installed in PA after driving through a 4 hour heavy snow storm. Wish I had them coming INTO the storm instead of after but the tires are definately quieter than the goodyear eagle rsa which were crap for noise adn treadwear. I research the reviews of these tires here on tirerack and called my local tire store to do comparisons and so far within the first 2 hours of driving through light snow and ice, the car didn't hydroplane or slip once. I have had yokohama's before adn i believe these will be great for treadwear. Very happy with my purchase especially at this price.
