Review 1 of 9

Price Paid:  $800.00 from American Tire

Year / Model Reviewed:
2008 Toyota Camry SE

Strengths:
Thought they were a good value.

Weaknesses:
Low tire wear. Only got 31000 miles out of a 60000 mile tire

Summary:
Was very unhappy to learn that American tire had sent these tires back 3 times to Yokohama because customers were not getting enough miles out of them but yet they continued to sell them with out mentioning this could be an issue.

Strengths:
handling,tread wear, price average

I'm not sure what everyone else is talking about in regards to noise level. I find these tires to be extremely loud and annoying.

Good tire if you don't mind the noise level inside the cabin of your car being loud.

Review 3 of 9

Price Paid:  $600.00 from Discount Tire

Year / Model Reviewed:
1996 YK520

Strengths:
Outstanding tradeware

Weaknesses:
NONE

Summary:
I know this will be hard to believe for some people, but I purchased a set of YK520's in 2007 from Discount Tire! I still have 2 of the original tires on the back of the car because I stopped rotating them after the store said they scaled to low for them to rotate them. So of course, the front tires woreout. I spoke with a rep at Discount Tire and we looked up the info and found that I have over 80,000 miles on the tires as of this date! I believe the purchase was made with 140,000 miles on the odometer. I currently have 232,425 miles on my 96 Maxima which is my daily driver. Needless to say, I love these tires!!!!! If I have the chance to purchase some more, I will be putting them on all of my cars. i can think of nothing negative to say about the tires. I hope that others can have the same results as I have.

Review 4 of 9

Price Paid:  $645.00 from America's Tire

Year / Model Reviewed:
2007 225R5017

Strengths:
Quiet. Good mileage.

Weaknesses:
Disappointing tire wear

Summary:
Have a 60k tire warranty. Have driven 30K miles & am a careful driver. Unfortunately, it's now in for replacement tires.
America's Tire will honor warranty and thus I have a significant savings coming. But, it's too soon to have to find replacement tires.

2006 Yokohama YK520

Strengths:
I have noticed much less road noise.

Ridiculously expensive!!!
