Yokohama AVID ENVigor (H- or V-Speed Rated)
Initial Review: 40,000 miles on tires
January 22, 2013

After a few disappointing Goodyear purchases, I changed my brand to Yokohamas. It has proven to be a great choice. This set of tires went on a car with approximately 160,000mi on it. I wasn't sure which would last longer- the car or the tires. Now, almost 40,000mi later, it looks like the tires are going to win. With proper rotation, these tires work great on rainy roads and super hot summer highways. We haven't had as much snow as usual the last few winters but what we have had has not been any trouble for the AVIDs on a rear wheel drive coupe. I really notice a difference in the breaking distance, too. I feel confident in traffic and sudden stops. That was something I gave up on with my last set of Goodyears. When driving spiritedly the Yokos have kept to the road instead of any lose feeling I've gotten with a previous brand. The tread life has been incredible. I expect I'll get very close to 50,000mi out of them- a distance I haven't had from tires in at least my last two tire purchases over 6yrs. I would definitely recommend Yokohama AVID Envigors to any small car owner. I'm thinking of replacing my Benz with a newer Volvo S40 and will definitely put the Yokos on that car when its time.
