Comment:
I am pleased with the ride and quietness of the Versado LX tires. I had a problem with tread separtation on one tire at about 40K miles and the dealer put on two Nexens since he didn't have the Toyo's in stock. They were very noisy, so I had all four tires replaced with Toyo Versado Touring and they are great! Quiet, smooth ride with great control. I do not agree with Consumer Reports low 52 rating at all. I would say at least 78. I'll buy them again when they need to be replaced.

Comment:
I bought these tires based on my previous experience with the earlier version on my other car. These tires on a full size sedan (Buick Lucerne) work very well in snow. They are very good in rain and do not hydroplane easily. I have been told that they do wear excessively even by the Toyo Dealer, I think that they are better in cold winter climates, than hot summer weather such as the Southern States. I do drive extensive Highway driving from Nova Scotia to Florida spending Summers in Canada. These new tires do loose air pressure more than 1 psi a month and this is not from rim leaks. I have a set on my Buick Regal and have3 had them for more than 4 years with over 40,000 Miles on them and still have approx. 50% of tread life left.

Comment:
Just removed my worn out Versados. They lasted only about 20-25k miles on my Mazda6 Wagon, which was kind of disappointing to me. I rotated them every 3k miles with my oil changes (roughly per the Warranty stipulation! read fine print!). I thought they handled well in their early days in dry, wet, light snow, highway braking types of conditions. I'd say in the last , say 8-10K miles I thought they were noticeably less performant. I guess that should not be that surprising, but I was sold on marketing language that suggested that the tire was designed with different rubber composites at the lower layers of the tread that would somehow compensate for wear. I guess I was naive.<br /><br />I am trying out the CR recommended Continental Pure Contacts.
