The AVID Ascend featuring T-speed rated sizes is Yokohama´s first mass-produced Standard Touring All-Season tire line in the United States using Yokohama´s Orange Oil technology and branded with their BluEarth eco-friendly identification. Developed for the drivers of coupes, sedans, minivans and crossover vehicles, the AVID Ascend is designed to blend long tread wear, low rolling resistance and all-season traction, even in light snow. Yokohama BluEarth branding is used to identify an ecologically friendly series of tires that are designed to deliver environmentally, human and socially friendly solutions for drivers and their vehicles. Orange Oil technology uses oil extracted from renewable orange peels to improve the molecular bond between natural and synthetic rubber to enhance tire tread life, vehicle fuel efficiency and traction in all seasons.
The AVID Ascend features a mildly asymmetric tread design consisting of three ride zones that focus on dry grip, water evacuation and wintertime traction.Large outboard shoulder blocks are connected by tread block bridges to maintain tire contact with the road that helps enhance dry response and cornering stability.The continuous center rib provides constant rubber-to-road contact to enhance straight-line tracking while its tapered outboard edge promotes more-even wear.Cross grooves and four circumferential grooves help evacuate water from under the tread to increase hydroplaning resistance and promote wet traction.Yokohama´s 3D Adaptive Sipes provide more tread block rigidity for longer wear, while their biting edges increase wet and wintertime traction.Inboard tread blocks feature higher density 3D Adaptive Sipes to provide additional biting edges that increase winter traction in light snow.The tire´s internal structure includes twin steel belts reinforced by spirally wrapped nylon on top of polyester body plies.
Have not tired them in snow yet and likely wont as I have dedicated winter tires.
As far as wet traction experience is limited but like any tire you will loose traction when wet roads are encountered.
So far great tires!

I'm on my second set because the first set wore badly and early. These are possibly the least "confidence building" tires I've ever owned. When turning on dry pavement, they seem to hesitate before firming up and gripping. On wet pavement, they are ok but nothing to write home about. In snow.... not a chance. I live in Montana and switch to snow tires in winter, but these are terrible in the freak snows we get in spring. They are fairly quiet and comfortable, but I'll never have these put on again.

the tires came with my new car, band new as well and for the first time tonight I was able to test them out in the snow going up 2 decent sized hills with an incline and to my suprise i was able to go around just about all 5 cars that were spinning out going up the hill.. lol I would say they are pretty darn good tires, in the rain they arn't bad like others may say in some areas by where i live i slide just a little but it could be because of the way i drive at times. GREAT TIRES DEF. WOULD SAY BUYING.
