Yokohama C Drive Reviews - Page 3

Given 91% while driving a Renault Modus 1.5Dci Authentique (185/60 R15 H) on a combination of roads for 5,000 average miles
These tyres are amazing! Cornering better than the old ones. They grip so well in all weathers - even today when the roads are covered in snow and black ice, I can brake (albeit gently) without the ABS cutting in! I'm also getting slightly improved fuel consumption (over 60mpg in the Renault Modus. They are showing no signs of significant wear yet.

Given 77% while driving a Nissan almera 1.5 (195/60 R15 H) on a combination of roads for 20,000 spirited miles
Used in a tuned Almera 1.5L with 115HP, very good tyre and very reasonably priced too. The more I pressed them in dry roads, the better grip they had.....a little worse in wet ones though...

Given 90% while driving a Honda Fit (Jazz) (185/55 R15 V) on a combination of roads for 93,000 easy going miles
The stock tyre Yokohama A045 on the 185/55R15 alloy wheels is incredibly noisy and that couplied with the rather hard suspension led to a very poor drive experience. The CVT transmission in the Jazz makes for very quiet cruising so tyre noise is very noticable. The awkward wheel sizing limits choices of tyres models with manufacturer ranges so the C.Drive was the quietest comfort segment tyre I could find. I have driven 60000 miles using C.Drive and they last 40000 rears and 30000 fronts. Very quiet compared with A045 or Firestone Potenza (the latter I have had driven with in a Jazz courtesy car). For my laid back driving style the dry and wet behaviour is the same and I have never had any feeling of loss of grip at any time.

One very small critism is that they lose some comfort and refinement below -5 deg C but above that temperature are excellent in all British weather conditions I have driven through.
