I have not mounted these tires yet, due to fact that winter is coming and the snow treads are on, but very attractive, looking forward to hearing(or not) how quiet they will be. Couldn't pass on the price, free shipping, and all the rebates I was able to take advantage of. If your looking for a better grade tire than what is available in your area, buy online with free shipping and rebates. You will not be sorry.
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I had these tires put on my wife's 2010 Toyota Camry to replace the OEM tires. What a difference! The other tires were loud and didn't handle very well. The Yokohama's are smooth as silk. Winter driving has yet to be seen, but I'm expecting great things. I will definitely put these on my car when the time comes.
How long have you owned it:
One-to-three months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
