The Yoko Parada Spec-x has been a very reliable tire for me. I've driven my last set around 50,000 with recommended periodic maintenance.
The tread when new is not very deep compared to others I've owned and wears fast initially then decreases slightly as the miles were accumulated. My initial thought upon first visual of the tread depth was that the tire would not last for very many miles.
Handling and traction on dry pavement was inspiring, but on loose dirt and rain it doesn't perform particularly well closer to the spirited side of driving. Driving in Washington state snow was not fun at all even with the assurance of full time All-wheel and 4 wheel drive modes. The noise and comfort I rate midscale as you could feel most road imperfections and I attribute the noise to the shallow tread.
First winter I had these, it rained then froze shortly after in the middle of January. I was towing an 18' car hauler behind my Durango, highway was sheer ice, my truck was firmly planted with the Yoko's on. I was doing 90km/h on the straights and 70km/h on the curves, only because I didn't want the trailer to step out on me. Semi's were doing 50km/h on the straights so that tells you how bad it was.
This last year driving QEII from Edmonton to Calgary, there was a travel advisory, not to take QEII, I was doing 115km/h on cruise control, had 0 traction issues, even while slamming on the brakes for semi's who cut me off. I should add they were at wear bars for that trip. even this spring, I swapped over to my brand new never used Yoko Geolander ATS tires, and we got a little snow after, and comparing my worn out, need to be replaced ITS tires to the brand new ATS, the ATS might as well have been steel discs.
This last year, while still on wear bars I winched a van out of the ditch, had to drive my Durango to pull it out the last little bit, while I was on glazed ice, my Durango never slid while winching, nor even came close to breaking traction with worn out tires.
In the tread life, I've run them 2 winters practically on wear bars, sure not as good as new, but far superior to any all season. I put them on early one year and put 17,000km on them in +5-+15C weather, and I think I lost a season or two of use out of them from doing that.. and I did get over 60,000km out of them when I took them off this spring.
