  • Performance/Price Wise Yokohama is Excellent

    Sep 2, 2011 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Smooth and quiet ride, Good handling, excellent for snow and wet road
    Cons: non-sporty look, T-rated only--not among high-performance tires

    Summary: When my tires (Michelin Energy MXV4) showed sign of wear back in summer 2010, I started to search for their replacement. It was not until October of that year was I really serious in looking to put new tires on my Lexus ES300 Sedan. Only this time it ... read more

  • Yokohama AVID-S Touring 215/70R15

    Oct 9, 2009 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Average cost; longer lifespan/mileage; quiet/smooth ride makes driving pleasurable.
    Cons: Availability; not all made in Japan (some here, some China)

    Summary: I purchased a set of four Yokohama AVID-S 215/70R15 touring tires for my work vehicle back in June ('09).  Since then I have logged appx. 8000 local/highway miles on them, incurring only one road-hazard claim due to an unrepairable ... read more

  • Yokohama AVID Touring TRZ Tire - Quiet, Smooth, Long-Lasting, But Not Perfect

    Apr 18, 2009 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Long-lasting, low price, low noise and cushy ride, non-directional design for flexible tire rotation
    Cons: Not the most responsive, T speed rating

    Summary: My mother's 2006 Honda Accord came with mediocre OEM Bridgestone Turanza EL41 tires in 195/65-R15 size. Check out my review of the ... read more

  • dangerous due to belt separation - spend an extra $10-20 for your safety

    Apr 6, 2006 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: price, good ride for the first 15,000 miles or so
    Cons: belt separation with potentially catastrophic failure, warranty is a joke

    Summary: I jumped for these tires about three years ago based on the glowing reviews. They were cheaper and seemingly better than most higher-end competitors such as the Good Year Regatta II's that were on my car before. When I put them on and drove, I thought ... read more

  • Mine Failed

    Jan 9, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cheaply priced, okay treadlife, some people swear by them.
    Cons: Soft cornering, poor traction, noisy, unstable on grooved roads, poorly made, poor warranty.

    Summary: In May of 2004, I bought an '03 Honda CR-V that came equipped with Yoko AVID Touring tires. The original owner replaced the OEM Bridgestone Duellers with the Yokos after 6,000 miles, so I'm assuming the original tires were pretty bad. In my first ... read more

  • Great Tires

    Aug 1, 2005 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Best street tires ever!
    Cons: Wish they made a version for a truck.

    Summary: I got tired of a 'rez ride' aka none of the tires matching, with summer approaching, I sprung for these tires from tire rack. Came on time, mounted up and lasted all last summer on them here in Phoenix. I loved how quiet they were and lost no psi when I ... read more

  • Extremely disappointed

    Jun 27, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Very quiet and smooth for the first 10,000 miles. All downhill from there.
    Cons: Excessive tread wear, separating belts

    Summary: I bought a set of Avid Touring tires a couple of years ago for my 2000 Toyota Sienna minivan. They were supposed to be 80,000 mile tires. However, with less than 30,000 miles, the tires are nearly worn down to the tread wear indicators. They have been ... read more

  • Stylish!

    Sep 9, 2004 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Style, price, brand, quality
    Cons: Might have to pre-order them. Blue strip in the backside of the tire

    Summary: I just replaced my BF Goodrich touring tires with these ones. I had 60,000 miles on the BFG. They were alright, nothing good/bad about them. I didn't want to buy another set of BFG, so I explored my options. There were Mohave, kumho, Arizona....and ... read more

  • Great touring tires . . . highly recommended!

    Sep 9, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great handling, traction, ride, and comfort -- and excellent value, too!
    Cons: They pick up and throw small stones. Yoko should offer black walls in all sizes.

    Summary: UPDATE: This is an update almost a year and about 11,000 miles since I acquired these tires. The verdict: Still great tires! They made it through our Montana winter (mild at times, not so mild at others), and provided better-than-good snow traction. ... read more

  • Not as impressive as I had hoped...

    May 30, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Good all-round performance for the money.
    Cons: Not as quiet as ratings suggest.

    Summary: We recently replaced the OEM Bridgestone Dueler 684's on my wife's CR-V with a set of Avid Tourings. We chose a touring model rather than a SUV tire because she only drives on-road, and lots of highway miles at that (and besides, the CR-V really ... read more

  • Get ready...to wiggle

    Apr 30, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: High quality looks, very attractive side wall profile, high mile rating at a great price
    Cons: Unstable and wiggly on San Diego freeways

    Summary: I read so many great reviews on tirerack.com and epinions.com about the Avid Touring Tire that I was willing to switch from my usual brand (Cooper Tire). So I went to my local Discount Tire store and checked them out. I was impressed on the design and ... read more

  • Car has never felt this good to drive!

    Jan 30, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Smooth ride, awesome handling, priced right, great rain & snow traction
    Cons: None to date

    Summary: I have a 1997 Ford Taurus with almost 180,000 miles on it. In the time I've owned, I've gotten a real good feel for the way it has been riding and handling. The car came with General G4S Touring tires tires, with a "T" rating. After the first 85,000 ... read more

  • Yokohama Avid Touring - great tire for Subaru Forester

    Oct 3, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Very quiet and smooth, good handling, good value
    Cons: not tested off road, sidewalls probably would not survive in rocky terrain

    Summary: My 2002 Subaru Forester came with Bridgestone Dualers, which is sort of a dual purpose on/off road tire. I thought the handling was adequate for this mild mannered little car, but the noise level on the highway was deafening on long trips, especially on ... read more

    Pros: Reasonable price
    Cons: Poor handling

    Summary: I bought these for a 94 Toyota Celica ST after reading the reviews. The handling was not good on su ... read more

    Pros: Quiet smooth ride, long expected durability

  • Avid Touring, I'd Rather take a Bus

    Aug 11, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cornering
    Cons: high speed ride, balancing, wet traction, snow, quietness

    Summary: It's been over 2 years and about 28,000. I purchased these tires replacing the original Goodyear Eagle GA's in 2001. This was a huge mistake. Why I replaced tires at 28,0000 is beyond me. About 8 years ago, I had very good luck with Yokohama tires. I had ... read more

  • Best tires for the Accord yet!

    May 29, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Very quiet, awesome price, great durability and warranty (80k).
    Cons: Only medium in handling- not a high performance tire.

    Summary: When I first read the other reviews on the Yokohama Avid Touring, I thought they were all rigged by the manufacturer or one of the tire dealers. Yeah, sure, I thought. "You get what you pay for" is the saying my parents drilled into me. However, I can ... read more

  • Excellent tires... Would buy them again

    May 9, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Quiet, excellent handling compared to factory tires, Excellent warranty
    Cons: none

    Summary: When the two front tires of my 1998 Dodge Intrepid wore out the first time, I replaced them with the same factory tires. That was a bad move because those wore out just as fast as the originals. I think I only got about 35K miles each time. ... read more
