Yokohama AVID S34D
Initial Review: 1,600 miles on tires
December 31, 2012

OEM tire on the 2013 Subaru Impreza with only 1600 miles on them and I'm already replacing them. Although the low mileage, these tires have seen it all in those miles. The wife and I drove up to Tahoe/Truckee for Christmas with her parents, during a snow storm no less and also have just returned from a long trip to SoCal after a visit with my parents. Being that these tires are new and on a AWD vehicle the traction in rain, heavy snow, and dry conditions have been decent and I accredit that to the AWD system mainly. The biggest and the most unacceptable quality of these tires is the noise. My ears are still ringing as I write this review. After 5 hours in the car with these tires I got on Tirerack.com and ordered new tires(Kumho Ecsta 4X)....as well as new wheels;)

For the price, I wouldn't recommend these tires...especially if you want to save your hearing.
