Yokohama AVID W4S Reviews

The Yokohama AVID W4S tire is a high performance all-season radial that is designed to deliver solid traction and stability. The directional tread design on the tire features a tread compound that includes a center rib for better stability during high speed dry pavement driving.

The wider circumferential grooves resist hydroplaning and give you added confidence on wet roads. Light snow is not a major issue for the Yokohama W4S as well. Treadwear is increased due to Yokohama’s unique computerized tread design, and the W speed rating is what you would expect with this ultra performance tire.

Price Range

The Yokohama W4S can be found for approximately $90 for a 17″ series on most sites, and $175 for sizes up to a 20″ series.
