Description


Yokohama tires are designed to perform better, keep you safer, and take you further. The AVID Ascend has tread block bridges to reduce tread movement for even treadwear and reduced noise. Adaptive 3D sipes deliver true all-season power, while promoting longer wear. And our exclusive Orange Oil Technology contributes to low rolling resistance, and long tread life.

  • QUIETER RIDE (Variable pitch tread design reduces pattern noise and offers a quiet ride)
  • ALL-SEASON TRACTION (3D adaptive sipes create more biting edges for wet and winter grip. Orange Oil compound remains pliable whether its wet or cold)
  • LONG TREAD LIFE (Up to 85,000 mile limited treadwear warranty)
  • FUEL EFFICIENCY (Breakthrough Orange Oil technology promotes lower rolling resistance—which saves fuel and money)

    Tested: Good, Reliable All-Season Tires in Winter | Tire Rack

    For most drivers, a tire that offers good traction, comfortable ride and reasonable treadlife is a good fit. Many Passenger or Standard Touring All-Season tires are designed to deliver exactly that. But what about when it snows? We went to Sweden to test this tire where winter reigns supreme.

    Tested: Passenger/Standard All-Season: Good, Basic, Reliable | Tire Rack

    For most drivers, a tire that offers good traction, comfortable ride and reasonable treadlife is a good fit. Many Passenger or Standard Touring All-Season tires are designed to deliver exactly that. We recently compared the new Goodyear Assurance All-Season to others in this category: Firestone FR710, General AltiMAX RT43 and Yokohama AVID Ascend.

    Tested: Grand Touring All-Season Tires | Tire Rack

    Which Grand Touring All-Season tire matches how, what and where you drive? It may not be the tire your vehicle came with. Non-O.E. designs aren't based on parameters dictated by a vehicle engineer. Tire companies are free to tune tires as they see fit to better align with the characteristics drivers want.

    Tested: Passenger and Touring All-Season Tires | Tire Rack

    New tires are often named to convey something about their attributes. And with names like Ascend, Assurance or Defender, many of today's Passenger/Standard Touring All-Season tires have strong names in hopes of striking a chord with consumers. All that marketing strategy sounds good in theory.
