Not cheap but a good tyre. 35,000km on a Mazda MX5 driven reasonably hard. Excellent grip and very even wear considering the amount of hard cornering. A little noisy but that could have something to do with wheels being just behind the seats in the MX5

Great tyres !!!

Was very limited in tyre choice due to size and required load rating. Previously had the Yokahama V802 tyre in the 295 35r22 108y size and got 50k km out of them on a Audi Q7 4.2tdi. These feel even better than the 802's. If they last as long I'll be very happy.

Got V105's for $213 a tyre. Today there $256, so timing of purchase is somewhat critical. Grip is great in dry/wet, almost as good as Potenza RE003, but with less road noise. Both of these are limo/sports tyres so don't expect more than 45K. Turanza ER300 cost more, extremely quiet, get 80K, but not a sports tyre and wet grip is average. All three have been used on a Statesman and will buy the YOKO's again.

I got these tyres because tyre noise in the VW Passat is the loudest part of the driving experience. These are supposedly among the quietest tyres. These are slightly quieter than the factory Continentals. Not as big an upgrade as I had hoped in that regard. But they are better in every other way (road-feel/handling/grip) too, so I can recommend them fully.

foundthe tyres a bit pricey but then they all are for the size tyre I needed. The tyres themselves are well worth the money...excellent grip in the wet they are wearing ok and I do rotate every 10k km. Yokohama do make an excellent tyre.
The purchase through tyre sales was flawless...so easy. Highly reccommend and would consider using again for my next tyre purchase

I 'read all the things' before getting the Advans, even had a store ringing me offering me a price somewhere like 60% of what these cost to put on Nitto Invos. Having never actually pulled the car off the road, put on a set of Pirelli P Zero's, Michelin Pilot Sport Cup or Bridgestone Potenza's and gone back to back with them, I cannot say if they are 'better' or 'worse' than the comparison brand, though at the price point of $120-150 less per tyre, I saved close to $800.
Besides the price, I scoured the Audi and BMW race forums all recommending the Advan's, then got a bit sold on the 'these are our best' and the 'limousine quietness and race tyre performance' quotes on the Yokohama site with a picture of the Nurburgring.
You see I wanted a road tyre for my slightly modified B7 2.0T Quattro Audi Avant that I could take to the Australian Tarmac Rally Championships.
What astonished both myself and my co-driver who also has a motorsport background, is screaming through the turns on the way to Mt Baw Baw and up the hill, on the wrong side of the road, in the wet, at up to 120-130 kph (because the roads are closed, as we are in a rally stage), there is no difference, absolutely no difference, between this tyres grip in the wet or the dry. It's quite surprising.
Since then I've flogged it through the hills at another round of the Aus. Tarmac Championships in the TSD category and the tyres have a lovely controlled friction point, they want to grab, they want to work and if the temperature plummets or soars they don't mind (we went from 4 degrees and pouring rain to 29 degrees in 3 hours).
I'll be buying another set and using them for Targa Tasmania 2018.
Also, my wife mainly drives the car and I am confident there is absolutely no way she would be in a situation (or I would) in normal road circumstances that these tyres would not cope with.
They are quiet too and run beautifully on 4-5+ hour drives, even if we've completely loaded the car and the roof racks.
Who would have thought hey, it does what it says on the can - "limousine quietness and race tyre performance"

I have only driven 500km's so far, and not in wet weather however, tyres are very quite and feels really good.

Product was exactly what I ordered. Delivery and fitting service was first class.
