This tire’s durability comes from what Yokohama calls Triple 3D sipes in the tread that change shape as the tire wears. The unique rubber compound includes orange oil and other polymers to increase durability. Shoulder tread covers nearly 40 percent of the tread wall to increase traction in mud, snow and slush.
EXPERIENCE: This tire felt closest to the Hankook Dynapro factory-installed passenger tire on the Ford F-150. Its smooth rollout seemed to give it endless coasting. Its braking characteristics felt similar as well, with no detectable reduction in braking or squishing when the brakes were applied. It did ride a little harder than the passenger tire, as expected, but cornered well and provided good stability with our tow load. The tread looked more aggressive than the other tires tested but actually turned out to be very quiet at neighborhood and highway speeds. We found the circumferential grooves gave us a more passengertire-like ride and wet-surface traction than the aggressively blocked tires. Overall, these tires provided the ride closest to the factory passenger tires, but in spite of their freewheeling feel and smooth rollout, they clocked lower fuel economy.
