Yokohama Advan S.4. 225/50R17 Ultra High Performance All Season tires, 5k mi. Asking $315 + shipping from 94043.<p>Noah cell 650 906-1720 email noah dot katz at LMCO dot com<p>Can replace various other sizes. I replaced Michelin MXM4’s 205/50-17 with them and got better handling, ride, and quietness, though with a speedometer error of 3 1/2%.<p>These were $700 not including mounting/balancing.<p>I have to agree with the reviews (see below) that these are great handling tires and civilized as well.<p>In fact, they handle better than the Vredestein Sessanta’s I replaced them with, which are billed as ultra high performance summer tires.; the only reason I can think is that the 235/45 Vreds are too wide for my rims.<p>I measured the depths as 7.91, 7.81, 6.01, and 5.90 mm; new is 10/32” = 7.94 mm. The latter two are more worn because they were on the front of a tuned C30 the whole time.<p>Averaging and extrapolating would give a life of 33k mi (though I believe wear is higher in the beginning when the tread is taller and squirms more).<p>Vendor and user reviews from The Tire Rack:<br><A HREF="http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Yokohama&tireModel=ADVAN+S.4.#Survey" TARGET="_blank">http://www.tirerack.com/tires/...urvey</A><p><A HREF="http://s273.photobucket.com/albums/jj224/nlkatz/?action=view&current=advan1.jpg" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://i273.photobucket.com/albums/jj224/nlkatz/advan1.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><p><A HREF="http://s273.photobucket.com/albums/jj224/nlkatz/?action=view&current=advan2.jpg" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://i273.photobucket.com/albums/jj224/nlkatz/advan2.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><p><A HREF="http://s273.photobucket.com/albums/jj224/nlkatz/?action=view&current=advan3.jpg" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://i273.photobucket.com/albums/jj224/nlkatz/advan3.jpg" BORDER="0"></A>
