The Kumho Solus TA31 is one of the best all-season performance tires when it comes to value for money. This tire is capable of excellent wet and dry grip while still remaining comfortable and quiet at high speeds. It is also engineered to last longer than an ordinary set of cheap tires and can handle light snow and ice. It even comes with a solid treadwear warranty for added peace of mind.
The Kumho Ecsta 4X II is an ultra-high performance tire for all-season driving. But Kumho went a little further by creating a tire that maintains aggressive traction over snowy or wet roads. Of course, no performance tire is considered excellent if cannot deliver better handling and stronger braking.
The Yokohama Tornante is a hybrid all-season tire. It combines high-performance capabilities with the benefits of a touring tire. In this review of the Yokohama Tornante, I’ll discuss the various features of the tire so you can make an informed decision.
Similar to other Yokohama tires, the Tornante has a conservative and rather plain-looking asymmetric tread design. It may not look like a high-performance tire upon first glance, but a closer inspection will reveal the characteristics that makes it stand out from similar tires.
Welcome to my review of the Yokohama Avid Ascend! Without a doubt, this is one of the popular choices in Yokohama’s impressive range of all-season tires. The Avid Ascend is capable of excellent wet and dry performance. It is an all-season high-performance tire with the comfort and ride silence of a touring tire. This means a sticky set of rubber that won’t ruffle your feathers over bumpy roads.
But the Yokohama Avid Ascend is not just serious about performance. The touring DNA is also responsible for the excellent wear characteristics. If there’s a kink in the armor of the Yokohama Avid Ascend, it will have to be the price. It is a more expensive option and will cost upwards of $500 for a set of four tires.
