Does This Tire Fit?

The AVID TOURING-S is Yokohama´s Standard Touring All-Season tire developed for the drivers of coupes, sedans and minivans. It was designed to combine ride quality, smooth handling, durability and traction in any season, including in light snow.

  • The AVID TOURING-S uses Yokohama´s Tri-plex Tread Compound to provide long tread life and all-season traction.
  • This compound is molded into a symmetric tread design that features Silent Shoulder variable tread block sizes and a central Twin Rail Stability Rib to reduce tread pattern noise while offering confident maneuverability.
  • The intermediate tread blocks feature Tapered Rain Channels working in tandem with circumferential grooves to help evacuate water and enhance wet traction while Cross Traction sipes provide biting edges to increase traction in wintry conditions.
  • The tire´s internal structure includes twin steel belts reinforced by nylon belt edge strips on top of polyester body plies that are stabilized by tall, tapered rubber sidewall inserts for better absorption of bumps and road vibrations.

Unimpressed with this tire. I am an aggressive driver, but this car has 300k miles on it, so it's hardly capable of really "pushing" a tire. That said, the dry traction of these tires was better than decent, but not great when they were new. Wet traction was barely decent, and snow traction was poor. They are now 5 years old and have 35k miles on them. They are still "legal", but are about 80% worn out. I'm not going to complain about the wear/mileage of the tire at all. I'm hard on tires and that's fine. My gripe is with how TERRIBLE the tires have aged: I began to notice the deterioration when the tires were 3 years old. I moved away from the snow after 2 years, so I can really only comment about the wet grip. After a couple years, despite there being plenty of tread left, these tires are downright dangerous in the wet. Even when you think you are being overly cautious, these tires will surprise you with no grip. Can lock them up on a wet surface with almost no pedal effort. Cruising around a gentle turn, I can step on the throttle (manual trans, AWD subaru) and induce massive understeer. Beyond that, the tires have developed cracking, all the way around the tread section, in the grooves between treadblocks. The tires ride just fine, ran quietly, and returned perfectly decent fuel economy. Far better than the Pirelli Cinturatos that were on it last time (that I straight up couldn't wear out). To sum up: The tires began to crack and deteriorate, giving up LOTS of grip, after only 15-20k miles and 3 years.
