After 25K the tires have still more than half the tread to the wear bars. There is a lot to be said for the R350 and its features, but this is a 6,000 lb vehicle. With interstate driving at 50+ mph in downpours, no issues with hydroplaning. On early rain traction, no issues. The same goes for dry pavement cornering. I have pushed them on mountain road "goat paths" and they stick. The tires these replaced were V rated Latitudes (great tires). By contrast, the Avid fuel economy is a little less and the wear is more advanced (I think the Avid V rated are softer-stickier) but comparable everywhere else for considerably less money. Not much snow experience with this tire. Slushy with ice and little accumulation they seemed fine, but I didn't push them.

I'm right at 65,000 miles, had these for 4 years. I will need to replace them soon. I'll probably buy them again. They're great for gas mileage and dry weather. Here in Tennessee we get a ton of rain and these are ok driving in ice and rain. I've slipped a little stopping and starting on hills and cornering in the rain but as long as I keep that in mind they're a great tire.

Best all around tire I've ever put on my car. Put the same ones on my wife's car. An as the tires age the performance stays the same. Also a very quiet tire that also stays quiet as you put the miles on. Excellent tire.

Bought these tires because I was tired of slipping and sliding all over the place in the snow and ice. These tires immediately stopped all of that. Very happy with them from the start. Improved handling on wet and dry roads. Improved gas mileage and quieter ride. Everything about these tires is better than the OEM's that came with my car. Would absolutely buy again. Unless tread falls off after 15k miles. Just hope to get close to the warranty.

I have about 7,000 miles on these tires and believe this is the best set of tires I have owned. I have ordered a set for our 2011 Sienna van. Very quiet and smooth ride. Very satisfied with the performance in all weather - including snow in the north Georgia mountains.

These are the quietest tires I have had on this car. They are easy roll type. The tread is 12/32" deep not the normal 10/32" like most tires so they should last longer than 85K.

So far has not been a very good tire on wet roads and snowy conditions, which Yokohama's website says it is supposed to be good for, according to their specs for this tire. A cheaper Falken or off-brand tire seems to be better than this tire. On dry surfaces, this tire is good, but most tires perform well anyway. A few times I have felt the tires hydroplane and lose a good amount of steering control. I doubt this tire will get 85K in tread life. For a "top-shelf" tire, as I was told it was, I would not buy again.
