The AVID TOURING-S is Yokohama’s Standard Touring All-Season tire developed for the drivers of coupes, sedans and minivans. It was designed to combine ride quality, smooth handling, durability and traction in any season, including in light snow.

The AVID TOURING-S uses Yokohama’s Tri-plex Tread Compound to provide long tread life and all-season traction. This compound is molded into a symmetric tread design that features Silent Shoulder variable tread block sizes and a central Twin Rail Stability Rib to reduce tread pattern noise while offering confident maneuverability. The intermediate tread blocks feature Tapered Rain Channels working in tandem with circumferential grooves to help evacuate water and enhance wet traction while Cross Traction sipes provide biting edges to increase traction in wintry conditions. The tire’s internal structure includes twin steel belts reinforced by nylon belt edge strips on top of polyester body plies that are stabilized by tall, tapered rubber sidewall inserts for better absorption of bumps and road vibrations.


  1. I prefer Yokohama over other brands. I do mostly city driving. I get solid handling and ride-comfort with the Avids. The tires are very quiet. With correct tire pressure, I am just concerned that the tread is wearing faster than I expected.

  2. Just over 30,000 miles and they are completely bald in the back and nearly bald in front . Came with the vehicle new so makes sense MFG or Dealer puts cheapest tires possible on vehicle to cut costs . Tire MFG wouldn’t replace the tires.

  3. I put these Yoko AVIDs on my 1991 Volvo 240 wagon and my 2005 Toyota Camry. I have been pleased with the cornering, stopping and wet-weather handling of these tires. I am not pleased with the tread life. I regularly check the tire pressure and rotate them every 5k miles. I was surprised that I got only 36.2k of service from these tires on the Camry. They are ok on the Volvo, but they’ve seen less than 10k of service.

  4. Got my 07 Odyssey with those tires and put 20 000 miles on them. Not sure how many miles they were driven before that, maybe 10-15k? Anyhow, they are pretty much up for replacement, however, within low acceptable limits since the guys at America’s tire did not refuse to rotate and balance. The thread of one of the tires just separated and gave me a horrible vibration, I was really concerned it might have been the power train or something. The tires are not noisy in general and have a good grip in dry weather but very slippery in the wet. No snow in So Cal so may not give an opinion. Will not buy again.

  5. Nice ride quality tirequiet runningdecent wet traction when the tires were pointed straight.Average wet traction when you turned though.not great in snow or ice but acceptable if you drove safety.dry breaking was excellent dry corner was sub par as the tires deflect crazy bad in hard turnsBUT they don’t lose traction45k miles and had 3/32 thread with my 2300lb car (all highway)my new continental contact touring a/s ride just as nice but don’t deflect nearly as much as the avid S tires did

  6. This is one of 3 sets of Avid tires I have had and each one had a significant ride issue later in it life. I did get decent use from them but on this Honda Van the tire developed a large bump on the tread basically overnight and I had to quickly purchase another set of tires because the van was not driveable due to the heavy bump. A 2004 Honda Civic had a similar issue although not as severe.
