Comment:
Purchased 4 new tires on 12/29/2010, mileage was 41015. Now mileage is now 77061, tire tread is at .3/32. Tires have been rotated every 5 - 6 k and alignments performed. All tires are wearing unevenly and stopping in the snow is now a major hazzard. I have purchased these tires before for my other jeeps and have loved them. Very disappointed in these tires as they have a 60k warranty and with only 35K they are ready for the trash.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months

No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

The dealer put these on a 2006 Chevy 2500HD that we bought used..I wish I'd specified what tires are acceptable..After a week or so I noticed they are annoyingly loud on dry pavement for such a lame tread design..The droning/whiny sound they produce made me want to swap 'em out,but I didn't..Then winter arrived..I've never been trying to go forward in my 4WD truck in the snow,and started sliding backwards,till now with these tires..I did not like them in the summer due to the noise,and they're no good in snow,Got rid of 'em after 17,000 miles..Don't get these if you think you might ever have to go up a snowy hill...This is Not an All Season Tire,Not good at all in the snow during the Fall and Winter Seasons..They stink..

Comment:
Had a Goodyear tire on Kia Sorento that was not cheap and did ok. Dealer talked me into the Yokohoma tire because they could make me a good deal on them and were just as good as the Goodyear. NOT EVEN CLOSE! I noticed they were more noisy and had more vibration then my last tires, I just thought they must have a more aggressive tread and will do well in the snow. 1st year we really didn't get a lot of snow but this year I got to see what they could do. The tread is still in great shape cause I just bought them right before last winter. The tires do not grip at all, I have trouble getting up my drive which is not that steep at all. Make sure you have plenty of time to stop because these tires are not on your side. I depend on my SUV and it looks like I will have to take a loss and replace a tire that should only be sold in warm areas. Looks like that little bit of money I saved in the beginning is going to cost me a lot of money. I will not be going back to Mr. Tire for there lack of knowledge about tires.
