I needed a new set of 3 season tires for our family van. After much online review, the Yokohama Avid Ascend GT tires consistently came up as an excellent 3 season tire that performs particularly well on wet roads. I had Michelin Primacy tires previously, but I only got about 75,000 km out of them despite being rated for 100,000 km. I just put the first 2,500 km on the new Yoko’s on a driving vacation through the Rockies and they definitely performed as advertised. We had one wet day and the tires hugged the steep mountain roads very well and felt their traction on tight corners. They also performed extremely well on dry roads. These Yoko’s are also as quiet a ride as the Michelin Primacy, something I was worried about. I would highly recommend these tires to anyone looking for a Grand Touring Tire for a van.
I had to change my tire selection and these were recommended by the staff at Squamish Kal Tire. I am most pleased with their handling. They provide a great feeling of traction on the highway. I am very pleased with how quiet they are as well.
