Interesting. The Yokohama Mfg manual lists them as a 50,000 mile tire. Not that I ever expect to get the supposed mileage, but have been able to milk out 90% usually on most brands. I'm also in central Texas where the roads are smooth and sweet compared to northern areas with snow, ice & salt, etc.
As for driving aggression, well I can't get enough, but this car is a daily beater and has never seen tracks or rallies. So I guess you could say soft to mild driving style for the most part
Curious though about your set.
How did the tire perform with age??
Sidewalls go soft?
Require rebalancing with heavy weights?
Were you unhappy with overall life and performance or just disappointed that they balded quickly?

Just curious as this is my first set of Yokohamas that are above the std passenger radial category and am not sure what to expect. The Yoko S60 has been good to us so far and are 75% worn and the Purelli HP for me do terrible here, seem to slip slide & spin.
Thanks for note!

I had Yoko Avid T4's before and I found they wore quickly - maybe my driving habits are more harsh than yours. Now I'm using Michelin Pilot XGT-H4 225/60-15 and they are very good in wet and dry - they seem to be lasting a little better.

My 2 CDN cents
