I didn't see it earlier when I searched, but hey, glad I was wrong about this!

I have driven the Advan AD08R's in conditions I got caught out in several times where I ABSOLUTELY should not have been, to include freezing rain, sleet, and yes, 6+ inches of snow. The tires did fine in the rain, as conditions adjusted I adjusted my driving as well. - any smart driver would. I did get caught in some snow on the Advan's and it wasn't as terrifyingly bad as you would imagine, but as they did get worn down (flush with wear bars), my 2nd time I had a major unintentional drift which took place due to unusual road undulations, and if it weren't for PASM, along with me putting a lifetime's worth of winter driving and rally experience together would have likely ended in losing the car. No I am not proud of it, I should not have been there, and yes it was honestly a testament to PASM.

to long didn't read?

- fine in the rain

- yes I drove them in snow twice

- no not intentionally, I got caught out in a couple road trips in the Rockies.

- Great tires, I'll likely end up on the New Advan 052's for my next set.

Last week I called Yokohama and they did in fact confirm that the A052s are replacing the AD08Rs, despite the fact that the 052s have 6/32nds tread depth compared to the 08Rs @ 10/32nds.

Hehe, yet they claim it has "200" treadwear, when the AD08R was "180" I will be putting this to the test next season once I ride the AD08Rs into the ground.

Has anyone got experience with these new tires? Price seems fair, and thread looks promising. They come with the perfect sizes.

Appreciate any advice.

Thanks!

Did it guys. Just placed the order. Will have them installed on Tuesday with an Update!

Was back and forth alot on these VS the PS2s N4 with 235 fronts. But i decided to take the gamble, thanks to the positive feedback here + publications online...

Yep, totally agree, that's the sizes I'll be ordering...and if I'm not thrilled with them, not a problem, they're not going to last very long anyway ;-)

Just wearing them out in the canyons and out on the coast...

I think I've got maybe 1500-2000 miles on the AD08Rs and they are holding up well and are wearing evenly.

Wheels look great. Just be sure you make some room for them by bending back the brackets on the rear fender liners and use a heat gun to form the plastic back and out of the way if you haven't done so already.
