Test Results: A Valuable Tire Rack Advantage - Yokohama Avid TRZ

Text from our tire test :

Advancements in Tire Design
Make Their Way Into
Standard Touring All-Season Tires


The traditional characteristics used to determine if a tire belongs in the Passenger or Touring All-Season categories are blurring as newer products in these two groups take technology and styling cues from more advanced products in the manufacturer***65533;TMs offering. Higher speed ratings, refined tread designs and sidewall styling normally reserved for Grand Touring or Performance tires are making their way into tires aimed at the more traditional Passenger and Standard Touring All-Season categories.

Yokohama***65533;TMs AVID TRZ Standard Touring All-Season tire with its unique ***65533;oeThree-Ride Zone” asymmetric tread pattern and silica tread compound takes advantage of some of the latest tire design and molding techniques, intended to advance this tire***65533;TMs traction and handling capabilities while maintaining the level of ride quality, tread life and price point appropriate for Standard Touring All-Season tires. To find out how well this blend improves the breed The Tire Rack team conducted a Real World Road Ride and Performance Track Drive to compare the AVID TRZ with the Firestone Affinity LH30 (Premium Passenger All-Season) and KUMHO Solus KH16 (Grand Touring All-Season).
