Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG51v

With only having 1200 miles on them the overall wear question is still a unknown. Traction in all conditions has been very good. If pushed in a dry corner at hwy speeds I do experience more understeer/drift then the factory All season tires. Braking on ice/snow is excellent. Noise on grooved pavement can be moderate as is chasing the grooves.The colder the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

Very good light snow traction with reasonable ice traction. Deep snow traction is OK for a dedicated snow. This tire really excels in dry and wet handling and braking compared to previous ice and snow tires I've had. Tread wear and tire noise is impressive as well. Compared to other snow and ice tires I've had for a number of vehicles including (Bridgestone,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG51v

After researching winter tires for my 2018 Subaru Outback, I decided to select the Yokohama Ice Guard. The past reviews from customers were inspiring. I am not disappointed! These tires perform well in snowy condition; both powder and packed. I have not experienced any issues with traction and performance.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

I was only seeking Bridgestone (JP) or Micheline (FR), but as the French competitor was more expensive and were not made in France, I chose BS made in Japan (I grew up in Yokohama, Japan but Yokohama tires didn't seem to match either BS or MI). I rev my 3.2L VTEC motor very often and drive hard.There were two more expensive BS summer tires with not...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Fuzion UHP Sport A/S

I bought a set of these for my Porsche 928 S4. While it is too early to give a conclusion on treadwear, I don't anticipate anything to heap praise about with a treadwear rating of less than 400 on the UHP tires. If anyone buys these expecting a long treadlife for daily driving, I would recommend you have your head examined and seek something higher than a...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID ENVigor (W-Speed Rated)

Very pleased with the ride, not an aggressive tire, but most of the time I'm just cruising the highway. I have taken the car out several times on twisty back roads and I cannot complain about their road holding ability. Since I only have 5k on the tires I don't know how well they will hold up in the long run. Personally, I'd be extremely pleased to get 20k...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG20

Good value for the price, but I have been a little under-whelmed by the traction on wet and dry roads in the cold without actual snow coverage. On previous cars I have used Michelin X-Ice and Bridgestone Blizzak winter tires, which cost a little more than these Yokos, but do seem to deliver a bit better performance in those conditions.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar H/T G95A

The only thing that saves this tire from being immediately replaced is my all wheel drive. I couldn't imagine this tire on a 2wd. It's terrible in the wet and snow and I have drivin through every kind of weather imaginable. In every vehicle You can think of. I am glad I didn't buy these as they are my OE tire on my vehicle.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar H/T G056

I've had to have the tires balanced 3 different times. They're not the best riding truck tires I've had on here. They're also noisier than the Michelin they replaced. When towing my 5th wheel camper, they lack the stability than the tires they replaced, get more sway from the rear. I'll have to give another review in September, after our 5000 mile vacation...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama ADVAN Neova AD08 R

The AD08R is an excellent all-around extreme performance summer tire. I have owned two sets of R's and, prior to that, owned a set of the original AD08's. I have a solid grasp on what this tire does well, but also understand that there are areas in which some of its newer competitors are stronger. I do not competitively autocross, so the fact that the RE-71R...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ (W- or Y-Speed Rated)

After several thousand irriatating miles with a set of Yokohama tires, I decided to go back to my original decision and purchase these Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 Plus and boy I am mad that I even tried a different tire. This is my first initial review so I will try to update as the mileage goes up on them, but I love these tires. First thing is to make sure...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Sport 3

Bought these tires after trying the comparable Dunlop and Yokohama tires. For the same price range these tires blew the doors off the competition. Awesome cornering and traction in dry conditions. Confident driving in wet conditions and the road noise was better than the others. Just like all the other summer performance tires, once it gets cold they lose...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar A/T G015

I bought this tire for my LR2 because there are basically no other A/T options for my tire size: 235/60/18. I don't go off-roading, but I do leave the road from time-to-time and live close enough to snow country that I wanted to be able to drive into snow without having to slap chains on at the first sign of trouble.So, my first impression was that the tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R

I drive an 03 Z06 Vette. It's my track car but it is street legal, I drive it to/from the track. It's modified for the track in terms of suspension, cooling, brakes etc. Drive train is stock. I do about 25-35 track days per season in the instructor groups. Tracks I drive are WGI, NJMP, LR, Pocono, SP, Palmer.A few years ago, I sold my dedicated race car had...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Firestone Firehawk AS

These replaced the Bridgestone Ecopia tires I had on my Mazda 3. Overall this was a massive improvement. These tires are very quiet by comparison, and maybe the most quiet tires I've ever used. They really perform predictably on the road and provide excellent handling. The grip around corners is superior and I can make many turns now that would cause my...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Premier LTX

Our Pacifica had Yokohama Geolandar A/Ts on it when we bought it, and we needed to go off-road to visit family, so that was all we ever knew in 8 years of ownership. That family has now moved back to the city, so I was looking for a standard tread this time.Based on stellar reviews here, I decided to try the Premier LTX. I noticed a difference even in the...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06

This is the tire Ford should put on the Explorer Sport. I don't think the DWS would have been as good on my BMW 535 as I tried the DW and it was too soft a sidewall and too slow a steering response. The DWS, in my opinion, is a perfect match for the amount of horsepower the 3.5 EB puts out. I have had several different brands on this Explorer but this one is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental TerrainContact A/T

2k update from Prescott..have had tires for 1 month now and have about 2k miles on tires. About a 50 city/45 highway/5 off road split. Tires continue to perform well. I can comment on highway performance now after a couple of ski trips and a trip to Las Vegas. I would say the tires are a bit louder than the OEM tires but not annoyingly so. It is almost like...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama Geolandar A/T G015

I am on my second set of these on my forester. best tires I have ever owned. these on the forester are basically unstoppable in pretty much any on road driving condition. I live in the Chicago area and have dealt with a fair amount of snow and pot holes and hot summers. these tires have never giving me a single issue. I will continue buying these tires until...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama iceGUARD iG51v

These tires were a great investment thus far. I have driven in multiple snowstorms, through as much as 8 of snow, and down to snow covered ice / slush. These tires out-perform other winter tires I have purchased in the past. I have bought winter tires from just about every manufacturer out there and these are among the best - not to mention the price being...  Read More
