Yokohama Parada Spec-X
Initial Review: 2,000 miles on tires
February 18, 2012

I commute about a thousand miles a week to work and various appointments. These tires replaced a set of Goodyear Eagles (Response Edge) that I was pretty happy with, they just wore out after 50k miles. These tires are absolutely amazing. While the Goodyears weren't noisy, these are quieter. Not just a little quieter, A LOT quieter. And smooth. It's unbelievable because I wasn't even sure I was driving the same car. It rides, handles, sticks, and drives all around 100 percent better than it did before. I can't speak for the longevity but I can tell you from the hills here in Chattanooga, TN to the Plains of Auburn, Al these are likely the best tires I have ever driven on. In wet weather they stick amazingly well. Given, my old tires had 50k on them but they were untrustworthy and unpredictable on a good day. These are very sure footed and predictable and overall feel much safer. I bought a set of wheels and had tire rack mount and balance them and I don't know that I have EVER in my life had a set of tires balance this smooth. No shakes all the way to 130mph (yeah, I had to try it) and smooth as can be no matter what I'm doing with it.
