Yokohama AVS ES100
#1244110 - 05/23/06 08:29 PM

put about 200 miles on the so far and i really like them; just for those who are interested. great in the rain, really quiet, and holds in the twisties really well. old tires were potenza re950's (which i loooved) but the avs were alot cheaper.

They're good tires, and very nice to drive. There are probably better choices out there now, but the ES100 is still a very good tire. The compound is behind the times, but the carcass is great, especially for the money.
