    Questions and Answers for the Yokohama BluEarth RV02

    2022-05-20 - I’ve got a 3.5 v6 Toyota Estima running on these in 215/55/17r. A nice big comfy bus with very understeery tendencies. Unfortunately, with 280ps/340+nm going through the front wheels it has a tendency to spin from standstill when it’s damp or going uphill. What tyres would reduce the chance of this happening, but also remain comfortable and very quiet?

    Something like the Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 6 or Michelin Pilot Sport 5 might offer you more traction without upsetting the comfort of the vehicle too much.

    After less than 3 years my tyres had developed bad cracking at the bottom of every tread. I am now having to replace all four tyres despite them having plenty of wear left. This is clearly a fault with either materials or the manufacture of the tyres.

    Yokohama BluEarh RV02 are very comfortable and suitable for vehicles with high center of gravity. They have exceptional wet grip & dry grip & also improve stability for vehicles such as SUVs and MPVs.

    Have a 2016 Nissan Qashqai shod with them. Stark contrast to the Goodyear's I had on a Toyota Rush which was pretty lethal in the rain and one had to keep ones wits about them when driving fast in the dry. That said, the Yokohama's do appear to wear easily in comparison which I would attribute to a softer compound.

    I will however be considering the Yokohama's again when they need replacing which will be in the new year. I may consider another make if they have similar stats but a longer life, otherwise happy with the tyres overall performance.

    Replaced Nexen N’Fera RU5 with Yokohama RV02. Pretty decent tires for it’s price. However level of comfort drops drastically as the thread wore down and noise increases.

    Switching from Dunlops, these tires are major upgrades. On dry, grip level is sufficient. On wet however, grip remains high and car doesn’t falter under braking or hard turns. About tread wear, the tires are currently at 40000+km ~ 3.5 years, but doesn’t show any excessive sign of wear. Might do another 20000km. Used sometimes for cross-country trips in SEA climate. In the comfort department, this is where it’s leagues above Dunlops. Road noise are almost nonexistent. Bumps and potholes are endured softly without bumping out the wheels. Suggested these tires to colleagues and friends and all of them likes it.

    As these BluEarth RV02 are designed to be primary used on MPVs, it works exceptionally well on my Vellfire, after replacing the OEM Toyo tires, the RV02 made the car feel way more stable while going over uneven surfaces with less body movements. Felt more comfortable than the Toyos and also had better grip during the wet and better fuel consumption.
