    I'm thinking of replacing my crappy Falken 512s with these Yokos. Anyone have any experience with them on a Passat? Thanks in advance, mates. :)

    I'm pretty sure I'm going with the Yoko AVID W4s, but now I learned about the Yoko AVID H4S, is there much difference (Rudy)? Is one tire design newer???

    Hi, new to the board and it has been very helpful so far. I'm thinking of this combo for my stock 2003 GLS, reflex silver. What do you think and is the Tire Rack a good source? Thanks! 225/45HR17

If I can get enough for these then I will sell them. If you are interested, make me an offer. I would prefer a local sale. I...

    So out of these three tires, which would you guys pick? I'm looking to finally ditch the stock MXV4+'s because I've had them for 45,000 miles, but mostly because I'm tired of losing traction every time I push the gas pedal more than lightly. I'd like to get 215/60/15 tires - that's the widest...
