Yokohama Parada Spec-X
Initial Review: 4,000 miles on tires
February 28, 2013

I replaced my Mich. Pilots with the Spec-X.. I went with the reviews I read about the Spec-X,and for the most part have been very impressed with this tire. The tread design is great for dispersing water during heavy rain. I was most impressed with how this tire handles in any depth of snow I have attemped to travel in. I live in Wisconsin. We currently were visited by snow storm Rocky. The snow was heavy(at least 8inches) with winds creating drifting that snowplows were unable to keep up with clearing roads. Though travel was slow, these tires handled like a champ! I had these tires installed in October of 2012. I also had an alignment done to make sure I can rate them best for wear and gas mileage. I monitor tire pressure on a regular basis. I did notice my gas mile decrease about 3-4 mpg. But colder temps can affect that as well.. I will better be able to monitor gas mileage once temps become more suitable to get more accurrate results. Overall I have really enjoyed these tires. I will post again once I have experienced these tires thru a summer season in Wisconsin to let you know my findings........
