Best budget performance tyres for my brz.
Comfort is irrelevant as this car does not have great insulation.
Dry..wet...not an issue.. tackle with confidence.
Handling and braking...I have no complaints..
Will review on a later date when they reach 10000 miles.

Given 83% while driving a BMW 320i (225/45 R18) on a combination of roads for 10,000 spirited miles
Dry grip is very good. However, it is clear that the limit is reached earlier than desired when in high demand during corners. On wet roads, grip is satisfactory and does not compromise safety. Extremely comfortable and quiet. For the price it is a great value for money.

Been running these tires for all four wheels since early 2021. Dry grip is excellent! I could take turns more aggressively than before. Wet grip on the other hand is okay but I don't feel as confident driving high speeds in the rain with these tires. Road feel and Handling is good, not as sharp and direct feeling as other top tier tires but still pretty good. Daily driving does not wear these tires much, just passed 10k miles and still plenty of tire left but I could imagine using this on track may degrade it much faster. Comfort is where I think these tires absolutely amazed me the most. As soon as I got them on I got less road noise and felt really comfy overall. Overall I feel the V701 tires are great specially with dry grip and comfort. I would not recommend these tires if you drive hard in wet conditions. The 225/45R18 Spec V701 are made in Philippines and being in the same country it was manufactured in might be the reason why I got these tires at a really good price. I highly recommend these tires if you can get them cheap.

dry grip is good but wet grip is overrated

Given 86% while driving a Mazda MX5 (195/50 R15) on mostly country roads for 500 spirited miles
Truckloads of dry grip and significantly improved braking performance compared to my old Falkens. Never drive in wet, so cannot comment. For an MX5 there is arguably too much grip, and getting the back end out in the dry now requires levels of provocation that I'm not comfortable applying. Lots of feedback from the road, very positive steering feedback, not at all noisy. Would buy again.

Made my car handle like rubbish. Even after a proper 4 wheel alignment they felt dangerous and made the car skip around the road and tramline.

Ride well and a comfortable tyre but wet handling and traction in particular let it down. Wet grip goes quickly and traction is an issue.

I've been running michelin pilot 4 for a couple of years super grippy but the road noise was doing my head in, and rolling resistance was high (has something to do with the grip) it was impressive. However the Advan Flevas are as good and quieter the wear is really good and still the tyres are soft, water dispersion is up there with wets on race tyres, everything has limits. I can say lateral grip when cornering is stable and the tyres will let you know when they want to slide but will catch. Breaking grip on our Mazda SP25 was sublime and confidence inspiring. Then the road noise on different levels of road was noticeable not absent in road noice yet compared to the michelin 4 pilots were 70 percent quiter and that matters when your wife wants you to slow down as she is now gripping your body parts that hard things are actually requiring medical attention. Other than that a fantastic tyre, yes I will be buying these again for the SP 25 2018 hatch Mazda, these tyres suit the car, the original Dunlops maxx sport were wooden and had no confidence in cornering or braking, in saying that these tyres would last a nuclear winter in wear, but provided as much grip as a politician telling you if you vote for him he will fix it what ever that is no questions ask while holding your baby.

Given 77% while driving a Suzuki swift sport (215/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 10,000 spirited miles
Changed to 4 pieces of this late 2019. Living in a country where its either hot or raining constantly, wet performance is very important. Been happy with the level of grip on dry and the quietness of this tyre. No dramas during wet. While I am not skilled enough to push my car to the limits, I do drive averagely at 160 to 180kmh on highways and the tyre is stable and grips well. Wear is good but maybe coz it's covid 19 and WFH hence not being able to try other tyres. Would buy it again except I'm keen to try other tyres just to experiment. Oh good price too.

Given 50% while driving a BMW 218d Active Tourer (265/30 R19 W) on mostly town for 15,000 spirited miles
Dry weather was decently grippy. Wet weather seemed fine as well but I didn’t really have a chance to really try the tires in the wet weather. Wear was shockingly fast. Bought a used car with these tyres on. Had checked the tires thread wear beforehand. Was still meaty. After nearly 3 weeks of 50% city 50% spirited driving, was shocked to find the tires worn to the thread walls possibly due to my wheels not aligned properly/camber was not right. But 3 weeks worn out is too fast even with that reason. Distance covered is merely 1500kms at most.

Given 91% while driving a Ford Fiesta (205/40 R18 W) on mostly country roads for 4,000 spirited miles
What a massive improvement over the Michelin Pilot Super Sports that were originally fitted to my car. I drive mainly on A & B roads averaging 70 miles a day. There is less road noise and the slightly softer construction over the Michelin’s means they are also slightly more forgiving on a rough road surface. The wet grip is fantastic even when pushed the car turns in beautifully. The dry grip is also excellent though not quite as sharp on turn in as the Michelin’s but equally as much grip. All in all an excellent tyre and very reasonably priced.

Given 83% while driving a Nissan 1995 240sx (200sx, or Silvia in other regions) (225/45 R17 W) on mostly country roads for 2,000 spirited miles
The Yokohama Advan Fleva V701 is globally a good tire, The grip is not exceptional (it's a road tire, not a track racing tire), but he has a good grip in all conditions. The feedback is good, and the handling very safe (no surprise in rainy roads). The tire seems to wear out quickly, but i drive hard (without any care for tires), and make one track day. Despite wear, with a few 2.000 miles, it maintains its performances.

I just bought my second sets of Advan Fleva today. My first set was 205 45 17. Driven for 30K kms.

I enjoy cornering and putting speed sometimes. Upgraded my brakes to 2P big brakes as well. Used to race on circuit as well.

These tires...

1. For this price range, it show amazing grip on dry and wet. Par as to Dunlop Lm704 or bridgestone Potenza. Especially on dry day, it sticks to the ground.

2. Contol of the steering is really superb.

3. Very impressive braking power.

4. Lastly, it is super quiet compared to other brand tires in same class.

Cant go wrong. That is why I bought second set today.
