Top 3 Yokohama BluEarth Winter V905 Reviews

Given 98% while driving a Mazda 626 (195/60 R15 T) on a combination of roads for 500 average miles
Great winter tyres, on dry these Yokohamas are like summer tyres, grip is excellent. On wet there is no problem, even a few cm of water was not a big deal but that was not with highway speed, up to 80kmph. Snow traction is great, no problem in deep snow but I had only one trip on snow in town so it is hard to say how good they are on snow.
They are comfortable, but should be better. Will buy again definitelly.
Thread pattern is similar to Continental, but I like this one more :D.

I was driving with these tires for 3 seasons already (in Lithuania). I liked them. The response on wet and dry is really good. On icy and snowy roads one cannot drive like on wet, it's obvious :) For that you have to choose at least soft compound tyres, or better spiked. They are pretty soft, which comes as a better comfort on bumpy roads. But what impressed me the most, is the wearing degree. After 20000 miles (3 winters) they are still around 6mm.

Given 94% while driving a Ford Fiesta 2010 1.4 tdci (195/50 R15 H) on a combination of roads for 3,500 average miles
Tried them on snowy and icy roads on mountain, they were excellent even in a really steep climb roads, driven them every day on dry and on rain, tyres were excellent. Even on mountain roads with many twists and tight curves, taking them with some speed they showed excellent, without any slips. The handling is very good in every condition, braking is really nice and smooth. Only downside is that they are a bit louder on highways than the others. Strongly recommending them.

Given 90% while driving a Suzuki SX4 Scross 1.4T Boosterjet (215/60 R16) on a combination of roads for 20,000 average miles
This tires are solid! got them from the dealership together with the car. It's been two years now (two winters) and cca 20-25k km. I have nothing bad to say about them. On dry - good, on snow - good, on wet - good. on slipery blob when snow starts to melt - they are good-ish. And that is the only bad thing I have to say about them. BUT, keep in mind they are stil trustworthy and I can recommend them to anyone. I have 4x4 SUV, and the tires didn't get no mercy.

Given 84% while driving a Audi A6 Avant 3.0 TDI Quattro (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 3,000 average miles
It's a very good tire, I use to have it on my previous car as well. It excelsd on dry a wet roads, good road feedback, maybe little bit more rolling resistance but that's acceptable for winter tire surely. For about a 95EUR/piece and the place I live (Czech Republic) is definitely one of the best choice. If you live in the mountains, you better go for the tire which excels in driving in the snow and on the ice but that's what I do not need actually.

Given 89% while driving a BMW 330D Touring (255/40 R18 V) on a combination of roads for 20,000 spirited miles
Have run these tyres on two different cars over winter for the last 4 years. The first set on a Honda Civic Type R in 205/45 R17 and the second set on a BMW F31 330 Touring in 255/40 R18 These tyres are simply incredible! The levels of grip they give when the road surface temp gets below 6 degrees C is almost on par with summer tyres. I have absolute confidence in the ability to stop and turn the car as and when required on slippery and frozen surfaces. Have taken the BMW into the French and Swiss alps a number of times and absolutely no drama, even when other cars are stopping to put on snow chains over alpine passes with fresh snow, and my BMW is rear wheel drive so notoriously bad in these conditions with normal tyres on. The Honda has also done really well with these tyres and with a front to back rotation we have got 20,000 miles out of a set of these tyres, and the Type R is pretty hard on front tyres being high power and front wheel drive. The only downside I would say is that the tyre compound is a bit soft when temps rise. Anything above about 6c road surface temp (not air temp) is going to be putting extra wear on the tyres. consequently in the UK I only fit them from December through to March when the weather is coldest. Also the sidewall is a little softer than summer tyres so the steering does not feel quite as precise as my summer tyres on initial turn in, but the grip is excellent so can forgive them of this. I would have no hesitation buying these tyres again

Given 93% while driving a Subaru Impreza WRX STI (245/40 R18) on a combination of roads for 7,000 spirited miles
Hands down the best performing tyre in snow and ice I've ever used. On snow they are genuinely like a summer tyre in the wet. There is a very steep hill leading into my village and I can stop on the steepest point in deep snow and pull away again without spinning a wheel. Breaking on the snow and ice is just as good. Steering is millimetre perfect also. Used these tyres for two winters now and put around 7k miles on them and they are barely worn at all. They are also fantastic on cold and wet roads standing water is of no concern. My only complaint about them is that they feel quite unstable at 'high' speed in the dry and feel a bit floaty. However despite this they have handled any emergency manoeuvres with ease and have never let the car get out of control. 100% will buy again without a seconds hesitation.

Great hold on both dry and wet road too good and in the snow it makes some noise

Given 89% while driving a MINI Clubman (215/40 R18) on for 1,000 average miles
I have a fairly long commute, and Scottish morning icy conditions this time of year aren’t great for summer rubber. After spending way too much time deciding which winter tyres to fit my mini with ended up going for the Yokohamas hoping they would hit the sweet spot in terms of price/quality tradeoff. So far I’ve done about a thousand motorway and b-road miles. Very happy with it. It is way better than the stock mini summer tyres in everything but dry grip (which you would expect). But even there the difference is smaller than I expected. Happy so far.
