2022/23 Tyre Reviews 17 Inch Summer Tyre Test
7th of 9 tyres
  • Dynamic sporty handling with good feel and direct steering response, excellent grip in dry handling.
  • Longer braking distances in the dry and wet, lower levels of grip in wet handling, high pass by noise, low levels of comfort, very high rolling resistance.
  • The Yokohama Advan Sport V105 might be an aging tyre, but it still shows off its sporty credentials with excellent handling in the dry and wet, and excellent grip around the dry handling lap. Unfortunately the tyre can't match the dry handling performance in dry braking, or either of the wet grip tests, and has very high rolling resistance and noise levels. Hopefully the new Advan Sport V107 retains the dry handling performance while improving the wet grip and rolling resistance.

Questions and Answers for the Yokohama Advan Sport V105

2016-12-03 - Is there a low profile 20inch in the advanced sport tyre!!

Yes, we have all sizes of the Advan Sport listed on the site here.

2020-10-29 - Is it recommended on a cayenne Turbo S 2016 ? And do you think that porsche modified the rubber compound since all have a UTGQ of 240 except this one 280 ? 295/35r21 don’t have much choices

Porsche often make big changes to their tyres, so it might be a compound adjustment. If it is an OE tyre, it will be good for the vehicle, however the Michelin Pilot Sport 4 SUV is available in your size and is an excellent modern SUV tyre. A full listing of 295/35r21 can be seen here.

Top 3 Yokohama Advan Sport V105 Reviews

Given 91% while driving a SEAT Leon Cupra (225/40 R18 W) on a combination of roads for 2,000 miles
I am impressed by the performance of the V105 (V105S) I had PS3 Michelin front and Hankook Ventus V12 Evo (K110). I tested alternately front and rear:
- K110 best in comfort but motor behind. Progressive slide to the rear.
- Drive PS3 better up front but wins and jumps abruptly at the rear. I also tested the Dunlop RT. Very fuzzy rear brake
- very average motor acceleration ... The Yokohama Advan Sport V105 are much higher. They do not like small bumps on the road
- the comfort is "dry" and this is due to their side very rigid. Superb handling on dry. Excellent traction. at 130km / h on motorways, silence is equivalent to other brands. in the wet, they are very very good.

Top Michelin, Dunlop and Hankook. Not tested on snow. They 9mm gum new tires. I did 2000 km. They are 8mm ... This is the equivalent of a Michelin Super Sport for much cheaper! Great!

Given 87% while driving a Mazda MX 5 1.5 2015 (195/50 R16) on mostly country roads for 24,000 spirited miles
Supplied as OE by Mazda on the Mk4 MX-5 1.5. Very enjoyable tyre for a mainly fair weather car. Good dry balance. I love this tyre, which make the MX-5 feel quite darty and reponsive and have just replaced the original 4 at nearly 24,000 miles, slightly early because one was written off by a puncture. They still had c. 3mm left on them.

Subjectively would say they are noisy, and despite being on a fairly compliant car they are a bit jiggly on a poor surface at low speeds, probably due to the stiff sidewall.

Given 43% while driving a Vauxhall Astra 1.9 cdti 150hp (225/40 R18) on mostly country roads for 0 average miles
Had these for a few years now on a Astra 1.9 SRi XP, I would not recommend them at all, ok in the dry but they are ditch finders in the wet, the previous tyres were cheap Nexus ones and were far better in the wet, I hit a roundabout at about 20mph and the back flipped around, if it wasn't for the Eagle F1s on the front holding the grip I would have hit the kerb, not great for the 18in pentas.
One now has a strange worn out patch about 2in round on just half the tyre tread which is bald, never seen anything like it, its like there is a bulge on the tread face, the rest of the tyre has 2-3mm of tread.

Given 43% while driving a BMW 330e (255/40 R18) on mostly motorways for 12,000 average miles
These tyres replaced a set of Uniroyal Rainsport 5's, that replaced a set of Pirelli P7 Cinturato's. I wasn't a fan of the Pirelli's as they wore out after 20K miles. The Rainsport's lasted 30K miles and these will do well to make it to 16K miles. Don't get me wrong, the grip in the dry is great, but in the wet, it's awful. If I was reviewing these tyres in the dry only, they would be scoring 7/8 in the feedback and handling. The contrast between wet and dry is night and day. I would not buy these tyres again.

Given 87% while driving a Mazda MX 5 1.5 2015 (195/50 R16) on mostly country roads for 23,000 spirited miles
These tyres were supplied as OE for the Mazda MX-5 ND 1.5. They still have 3mm tread at 23,000m, wear has been equalised by occasional rotation. They seem to be optimal for the MX-5 with great dry balance and plenty of dry grip. What the absolute performance is in the wet I couldn't say, it's a summer car and I always drive to poor conditions, but I have never had any surprises on wet roads.

Steering and turn in are consistent and sharp, I really like the feel and have loved driving the car for the last 6 years. This might be the best tyre for this car, certainly for fair weather use. The sidewalls are very stiff which presumably accounts for the agile feel of the steering. There are few 'sporty' tyres available in this size and rather than go for a premium touring tyre from Goodyear/Michelin/Continental, which might perform better on measurements overall, I have chosen to fit the same tyres again.

Subjectively the tyres are quite noisy, and ride at low speed can be jiggly - not important for me in this application. I'm glad they are still available. The V105 has reportedly been replaced by the V107 but that does not seem to be available in 196/50R6.

Given 81% while driving a Toyota Perodua Myvi Toyota Passo (195/50 R16) on a combination of roads for 10,000 spirited miles
FYI - No Judgement please - got it at crazy price so must try. plus this tyre not native to my country, its a OE unit from Japan MX-5. Recently got my hands on a set of 2016 sets of tyres with atlease 40% of thread left and acceptable condition to rubber. No visible cracks, no plugged holes, and very even ware all around. Wasnt expecting much from the tyre since its older, but boi was I surprised! For a 6 YO tyre with lower thread, i find it better in every way compared to my new Michelin PS3 and Advan Fleva that I previously used. Whether in the dry, in the wet, aquaplaning was acceptable and overall it was an outstanding tyres. If only this model comes into Malaysia market, i would definitely buy new.

Replaced my stock Dunlop Sports MAXX that were cracking on the side walls after 20K miles as was noisy. This particular model Yokohama advan V105 has much better grip, less tire noise and softer. Wear seems reasonably better than Dunlop and the other tires I have tried before.

Given 89% while driving a BMW 330i M SPORT SALOON (255/40 R18) on mostly town for 2,000 spirited miles
I used Bridgestone Driveguards RFT, after 15k miles changed to these performance tires and overall very satisfied with it. It is a bit noisy when compared to MPSs, but very grippy and progressive tire. However these tires are designed to be used in summer season, once I have used it during winter and it was still grippy and solid on the snowy roads. I strongly recommend these tires if you can not afford MPSs.

I had PS4 for the last 2 years and always wanted to try a flagship tyre from Japan .... came across Yokohama Advan Sport V105S. Price wise , is pretty attractive to start with . After initial run in , the tyre actually offer very good dry and wet grip around tight corners . One thing I like about the tyre is it still offer good ride comfort despite able to satisfied a spirited driver.

Given 81% while driving a Audi S4 (255/35 R19) on a combination of roads for 6,000 spirited miles
Fitted to my 2013 Audi S4 on front and rear. Dry handling is great, little understeer on the road although they need to get warm to stick well. Colder and wet weather isn't as good. Still handles fine, but less confidence inspiring. I took it to a track day at Donington Park, where they gripped incredibly well. Track temp was pretty high so wear was intense, and even after a few hours the surface of the tyres were still sticky to the touch.

I have a 2015 Chrysler 200s. the car feels grate on dry roads but , on wet roads between 40 to 65 mh the rear starts to vibrate. I have to assume that the tires are starting to hydroplane a little. Am I wrong?

1. Good grip for the type of tires in both the wet and dry. 2. Low noise high grip 3. Soft compound, easy to heat up for more grip. But also easy to get slightly melted in high technical course 4. Used on gymkhana and many spirited run on canyons and touge. 5. Lasted 8000km about 5000miles in my type of driving.
