    Had Autogrip (4 years old though) when I bought the car, they were terrible in the wet and I had to crawl around at low speed . Replaced all four with AE50, what a difference ! These tyres are fantastic for normal day to day driving even in wet weather.

    the worst tyres I ever use. after 10000km they melt and I don't drive aggressive. I will never use again this brand even for free

    Dry and wet grip is good in summer. Aqua-planning during rain is adequate. Value for money for a made in Japan tyre. Only downside is that the sidewalls are soft, not very good for harsh cornering. It's considered a noisy tyre when its new. And it is extremely noisy now (done 30k km)

    Absolutely the worst tire in the rain. Even if road is a little wet from a previous rain they can’t grab the road. Even at 25 mph going up a hill unable to grab the road if it’s the least bit slick. I worry about my safety

    Given 57% while driving a Lexus IS250 RWD (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 500 easy going miles
    Went from Jinyu 53 tyres to yokohama. Straight up after fitment, I noticed how bad the wheels were exposed in comparison to the Jinyus even though both doesn't claim to have any Rim Protect design. These were just so bad. Performance of Yokohama are way better, especially in the wet. I felt very confident on a 70MPH motorway drive in the middle of a cold and windy downpour. Ride comfort is worse than Jinyus- bumpier and way way louder. The stretches where my car used to be absolutely quiet are now producing deafening tyre noise. Just not worth the money at all. Would not recommend them even at a 50% discounted sale!

    I bought the tyres after looking Yokohama Made in Japan 4419 built and got on in 2020 but they last only 20-25k. Not a value for money. Having weaker side walls, the tyre blooped out like Dunlop. Not buying again.

    Given 31% while driving a Ford Focus MK3 (215/50 R17) on mostly town for 2,000 average miles
    Just taken a pair of these off my ford focus. They are probably the noisiest most uncomfortable tires I have ever driven on. Like driving on flat rocks. Changed to some cheap Altenzo sports comforters and the car feels like a car again completely transformed the ride and stance of the car instead of feeling like a down the local fair. Absolute dud of a tyre

    These tyres on front axle were only 8 months old when I purchased car. I thought yeah Yokohama's that's a good tyre. So far after another 3 months they have not impressed me at all. They always feel flat so much that I keep thinking I have a puncture and they are at the correct pressure. Not a lot of feedback from these tyres either and they are as noisy as hell on any surface. They just feel rather dull. Taking them off soon.

    Had tyres fitted and tracking done in June 2019, Just had my yearly MOT done for 2021 and had an advisory for front tyres. Not impressed as the tyres have barely done 10000mls.

    The Bluearth AE50 has a hard tread rubber, which becomes harder with age. While this greatly improves it's durability and longevity, wear resistance, it is thought to reduce it's grip in the wet. The directional pattern does much to prevent this from happening, but many reviewers have experienced wet braking difficulties. That said, I have driven these for 6 months and I have not experienced wet handling problems. There is however a noticeable loss of traction when accelerating hard from standing still, the car's ESC kicks in when this happens. The tyre is quiet, comfortable, corners easily and is enjoyable on long road tours. Fuel economy is typical of these low rolling resistance types of tyre.

    Tyre is set more towards economy than performance but still offers good handling. I was surprised how well it copes in the wet conditions I am driving on coilovers and after replacing the Pirelli P7s I was very much surprised how comfy they are.

    It’s a cheap Japanese tyre but not really worth. The poor handling, and wet grip of the tyres had me changed out just after 5000km of usage. I couldn’t accept the fact that it have such a poor grip on wet weather condition, which caused the tyre to drift out of the lane and I was lucky not to caught up with other car.

    I only used AE50 about 5000km yet into my Nissan E-power Nismo but I think AE50 are nice tyres low noice and with smart grip on the road wet and dry and I believe that these tyres are fuel efficient also and my staering wheel is much more comfortable than before, I believe in Yokohama products
