Yokohama Parada Spec-X
Initial Review: 22,000 miles on tires
April 11, 2013

I like to drive! I only used these tires from April through November and they made driving a delightful experience. It's the best word I've got for tires that let me drive (appropriately) aggressively even on wet asphalt. I felt confident they would keep the car on the road and experienced controlled turns and no hydroplaning. I didn't have expectations for treadware but it wasn't great for me. I didn't communicate well, apparently, and these directional tires wound up on the same wheels for two seasons. So I have two good and two shot/cupped. With better care on my part I could have gotten another 10K miles from the set. They are a sport tire and I guess if you drive like you mean it 35K miles is OK. I would definitely buy them again. Oh - they do pick up a lot of little stones. I'll be buying another set when I don't live on a dirt road any more :)
