    Default tires: Yokohama Avid H4s

    Yokohama Avid H4s:

    these tires were great as a commuter tire. they had a hard compound that lasted a long time. the grip is not great as far as a performance application, but worked great for daily street use. in wet and snowy conditions, they did surprisingly well. the sidewalls were nice and stiff, but not too stiff (40 series 17" wheel). overall, i would recommend them to a daily driver/commuter who wants a long lasting tire.

    had them on the car: 3 years front and back, 5 years just on back
    conditions: daily driving (Alaska, Florida and Illinois), some autoX (when they were on back with different tires up front).
    UTQG: 500 AA A
    size: 215/40R17
    rating: 87H RF

    2000 S/R FSP build: APC shift knob, LED tails, zx2 sticker on the rear bumper, Silverstar headlights, blue spark plug wires, optima red top battery, Magnaflow muffler, and some lowering springs.

    I put The Yoko AVID H4s in P205/55R15 87V on my sons ZX2 & daughters ZX3. Looks like they will go 50-60K on both cars. Good looking & very predictable all season tires. They may not give the max performance but are a great value at about $75.ea from Tire Rack. The ZX3 had Continental Extreme Contacts before, they really worked great but cost too much & wear out too fast.

    I have had mine for 4 years and there life is about spent. I gotta get a new set befor the snow comes. They did great I. Rain I never hydroplaned unless it was a crazy puddle and the traction was good in snow too. I'd also recommend. I ran 195/60/R15

    I had these once. They were the worst tires I ever had. Have Michellin Destiny's now. They are the best. The second Best were Firestones (I forgot which right now) they were the quietest and best mpgs. The Michellins are the best all around, quiet, smooth, comfortable, snow, rain, tread wear, and GRIP only problem is they aren't the best MPGs nor are they speed rated for over 120, but the age my car is now, no way am I doing that. They are higher end and the tread goes deep but didn't cost much more. Yokos were worse than the OEMs. Never get directional tires. They'll piss you off non stop. They are harder to rotate and throw your alignment off.
