I do have no choice, since the good 6TTwheel sizes are dying away. The toyos R 888 in 315/30 and 295/30 arent available anymore.
There is no CUP2 or Trofeo R in 255/35

Its really sad...

I do use right now toyos R888 in 235/40 and 315/30. They did peform very well in the wet.

They did perform very good when dry too.

But i guess its better to use 255/ in front for corners. The 295/30 should be fine.
Good news. The yoko a052 will be available over here in 2018 in 315/30 R18.
Finally a good tire in the right size.
So i could run 235/40 or even 245/40 with the 315/30 in the back.

245/315 is a great combo for AWD setup, with the front being slightly taller than the rear.

Fortunately, my AD08Rs are wearing evenly and more slowly than I would have guessed, so it's gonna be a year before I can try the new A052s.

Yokohama's doing a great job for us, that's for sure!

Just got a set of AD052s today as promised! The Year with the Yoko AD08R has been great. 9 AutoX events, 2 track days, and 5k miles last year and they are still not done yet! Unbelievable life from those tires. Sad to see them go. The AD052s have a lot to live up to. Ill post back once it stops snowing....

Did your AD08Rs get loud @ about half life? Mine are howling now, esp. the fronts.

Didnt seem so, but then again my exhaust has no muffler. Tire noise to me is not something I care about in the least bit. But no I have not noticed that it has dramatically changed when highway cruising.

I wore my AD08R rears out in about 7000 miles. too much toe in. Looks like I gotta switch to the new AD052's now, Michelin PS4's unavailable in our sizes for now. (don't want to size up to 315's and PS2's are awesome but id rather have the new model tire)

Any review on the new tires? I have the AD08R's and I'm thinking if I should make the switch. Do they work better on cold or do they need more heat?

Not yet, It will be April before I can get on track in my neck of the woods. I will post back when I get some miles on them.

Anyone know how the Yokohama Advan A052 compares to the Falken Azenis RT615K+?
Azenis is about $400 cheaper per set of 4.

have about 800 miles on them. Car has been parked all winter, but recently took her out in 50 degree weather. The tires provide tremendous grip. Compound is on the softer side, so I donít know how long they will last, but traction is unbelievable. Quiet on the highway, and provides a lot of communication through the wheel. Only annoying gripe with them is that the compound tends to pick up a lot of debris from the road, and when parked for long, causes them to get etched in the rubber. Also advice against parking it for long with the rubber contacting the ground, hasnít happened to me. But Iíd imagine this tire is susceptible to flat spots pretty easily.

Honestly, for the size availability on our AWD cars, and tread so similar to the trofeo r, I would pick these again when itís time to change.
