YOKOHAMA YK740 GTX Tires (Our Review)

Overall Assessment

Other than providing you with a quiet, smooth ride which is always a positive, these all-season touring tires from Yokohama also allow for excellent handling in all weather conditions. The durable tire not only allows for a smooth ride we all hope for, but also pushes the boundaries of what technologies are used. The ELS Orange Oil tread not only provides excellent traction in all weather conditions, but it also keeps the rubber pliable at lower temperatures. Perfect for optimal performance in the winter months or cold and wet weather.

To provide great cornering grip and handling stability the tires tread is specifically designed to evacuate the water from the tire that in turn helps in creating biting edges to better grip the road in inclement weather.

Yokohama YK740 GTX Customer Reviews

Patrick says: “ I much preferred these tires to the Michelins that came with my vehicle, a 2014 Avalon. In my opinion, the ride was much smoother and a lot quieter as well. After 138 000 miles on the road, it still rides like new and sounds the same as the day I put these excellent tires on. I am thrilled that I got these tires.”

Patrick posted 4 out of 5 stars (4 / 5) review
