Review And Compare Tires Before You Buy
Yokohama Advan Neova AD08R Tire Review
Speed Academy tests the new Yokohama Advan Neova AD08R Extreme Performance tires to see how much faster they are over the stock equipped Michelin Primacy HP Scion FR-S tires at Toronto Motorsports Park.
Yokohama tires are designed to perform better, keep you safer, and take you further. The ADVAN Neova AD08R features world-class technology to provide more grip for unprecedented performance. Rapid reflex twin ribs provide stability during high-speed driving. Steel sidewall inserts resist lateral deflection and provide excellent control and enhanced cornering.
“I bought these tires for weekend track events but ended up leaving them on all summer. On the track they warm up quickly and the grip is very near R compound dedicated track tires. I am less than a second slower than my former R compound tires at Putnam park which is a 1.7 mile track. Tire is predictable and breakaway is smooth and catchable. Tread wear is very good as the tires look like they’ll last for all 4 three day track weekends I do plus the rest of my summer driving. I also like that this is a symmetrical tread so I can flip them on the rims when the outside begins to wear. I drove them on a wet track one day and the grip was impressive so that is a big advantage these tires have over fully dedicated R compounds. Don’t have to sit out a run session because of a little rain.”
“I had the AD08’s before and the new R version is even better. The handling is very perdictable in dry conditions, I autocross and attend HPDE with my car and will definitely buy again”
