RE: Great Tires
The Yokohama AVS S4 is a great all-season performance tire, just don't
believe the 40k mileage warranty. I've heard favorable reviews of the new
Michelin Pilot XGT V4's too, but they cost a lot more. Michelin MXV4's are
not even in the same class as either of these.
The Tire Rack is very biased in their reviews; just look how they push those
junk Blizzaks (maybe they're ok if you drive at low speeds on ice 100% of

I just replaced a set of MXV4's with a set of Dunlop SP5000's all season. In
the past I have also run a set of BFG Comp T/A ZR4's.
The difference in dry and wet traction between the Mich's
(worn 50%) and the 5000's has been amazing. I bought on the the
recommendation of the local tire dealer over the Yok's and the other all
season tires I had been considering. Not cheap at $129 ea. but I did see
later that you could get them at Tire Discounters on the web for $101 ea.
