In Reply to: ne1 ever use yokohama A520 tires r they ne good??? posted by ///M3 CRAZY on October 06, 2000 at 22:55:16:

I broke in a set a few years back when they were just coming out.

Laguna Seca (yes I spend a lot of time there :] )

The ride quality is ok. Not terribly harsh, but a bit more bumpy than say a touring tire.

At the limit, great grip. The sqeal at the limit, and slide in a fairly controllable manner.

In the wet they don't grip worth shit.

Should last you about 25k miles with realtively agressive driving.

I think the Prada's are a good buy right now. About $2 more a tire than the 520 from TireRack last I checked.

But if you want all out power for a decent deal...look into the Toyo Proxes. Great grip, long tread life. Decent price.
