Went all over pricing tires for my Honda and found that these were better than most and when the rebate made them affordable, I decided not to wait until I really needed tires because I could have gotten a few more months out of them but with winter just around the corner I felt it was in my best interested to get them. So far so good.

Absolutely love my new tires. Mileage has picked up between 1-1.5 miles per gallon. Very smooth riding tires and quiet!!! Can't evaluate snow conditions nor hydroplaning yet as i've only had them on for about 5-6 weeks. Soon, the snow will fly in upsate N.Y. and i'l be able to give a much more thorough review. As of now though, I am totally satisfied and impressed!!!

I've had to sets of Michelins on this car and was very Surprised how well the Yokohoma's felt on the car. Very good indeed. Probably better than the M's. I am very impressed with the purchase and service I have received. Price to performance ratio is excellent. I have no reservation recommending these tires.

So for, so good. Quieter (and hopefully longer lasting) than the Kuhmo Solus tires that lasted only 3 years (33,000 miles). I probably would have held onto to them longer but an upcoming snow storm in Dec. forced my hand. Very happy with my purchase so far! Remember: always keep the proper air pressure; keep them properly balanced; and rotate them on a regular basis!

Cannot comment on any type of winter driving as we've yet to have snow. Noise level and ride comfort is superior. Had Cooper CS4s before and liked them a lot. Yokohama's are much quieter so far.

Treadwear estimated at 75,000 miles. I got 85,000. Great bang for your buck. Only downside is wet traction and hydroplaning resistance, but overall a great tire. Already bought a second set.

Although I have only 1000 miles on this set of tires, they seem to be a big improvement from the set of Cooper tires I purchased a year and a half ago. I have been able to drive them on light snow and ice and some heavy snow in local driving conditions. They seem to hold the road better and the car stays through the turn around corners at 35+mph. I have had little to no trouble braking or skiding in light snow. I did skid a couple of feet when I stopped on one local road that was not plowed and had 8-10" of snow on it. I actually tried to make it skid so I don't know if that really counts. They are quietier than the Cooper CS4 and give a better ride. I will be driving through upsate New York during February and am looking forward to testing out these tires on highway conditions. I would certainly, at this point recommend these tires. They are a good fit for this vehicle.
