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.
I was shopping for a quiet smooth riding tire. The original Goodyear tires on my car lasted 75k miles & were OK but noisy. Went with Big-O next & got 55k miles & they handled so much better than the Goodyears but were still noisy. Got another set of Big-O's next generation (a step up from previous set) and wow. These tires were loud, couldn't handle wet or light snow at all, and wore completely out (zero tread left and very bad uneven wear bars). Big-O said struts were bad & caused wear, handling, & noise issues & wanted a small fortune to replace suspension & tires. I went next door to Ken Towerys & had it all checked. They said all suspension was good & weren't sure why the tires were so bad. They had a special on these Yoko's & the tech assured me that they were good high middle class tires. Well i was shocked immediately. My car has never driven so smooth & quiet, not even new. These tires handle great, cornering, stopping, starting, wet traction, even descent on snow as long as u drive like it's snowing. I drive 90% hwy & have over 7k on them, they tread still looks new. I hope they last & handle well as they wear but if this first 7k is any indication these tires could outlast my car, well into the 230k mile range. I don't get the bad wet & snow handling & bad wear out reviews i have been reading, it's not my story. Im buying another set this weekend for my Civic. Well worth it at regular price, but catch a sale & sail away.
