The BluEarth S34 is Yokohama’s ecologically oriented Grand Touring All-Season tire chosen as Original Equipment for Toyota Prius v five passenger, front-wheel drive crossover vehicles. Developed to combine year-round traction, handling and comfort with reduced environmental impact, BluEarth S34 tires feature Yokohama’s proprietary technology that uses renewable orange oil to reduce the use of petroleum. Designed to enhance vehicle fuel economy by reducing tire rolling resistance, the BluEarth S34 delivers year-round traction, even in light snow.

Yokohama BluEarth S34 tires feature an all-season tread compound that reduces energy loss while blending dry, wet and wintertime traction. This compound is molded into a symmetric tread design with tie-barred shoulders, intermediate ribs and center blocks for dry road tracking and traction. Four circumferential grooves help water flow from under the footprint to resist hydroplaning and enhance wet traction while numerous notches and sipes increase the edges that bite into light snow.

The tire’s internal structure includes twin steel belts reinforced by spirally wrapped nylon on top of a polyester casing to blend ride comfort and durability.

  1. OEM tire came with 2013 Prius V. Rotated regularly until hit wear bars on one of the pairs at 54,900 miles, other pair still has 1/8-1/16 inch left until hits wear bars. Just replaced with Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus SL due to price, reviews. Overall not bad tire, ride performance was good, just did not last as long I would have liked, but the UTQG rating is pretty low for these tires, so it makes sense.

  2. OEM tires came with the Toyota Prius V. Above average performance, MPG, and road noise.Popped like a balloon when a falling rock hit me, but that rock also ripped right through the passenger door. Car still handled very well, at speed, above expectations with a flat tire. No accidents – heavily damaged tire held together – very good job, literally a life saver !Tires are a bit loud. Ultra low rolling friction is great, get those MPG – but I prefer a quiet ride.Prius is pepsi can thin and light metal, also trimmed to reduce weight – so noise is a trade off for high MPG in such a thin and light car.40 MPG – to 48 MPG all day every day… great for long highway drives, a real fuel saver, both the car and the tire.Overall, I would get a quieter Goodyear Comfort Tred or Michelin Primacy MXM4. Reducing noise in an Ultralight Car has proven to be important. Other people might want to sqeeze that extra 2MPG – 4MPG, and have the tires pay for themselves. Summary: Good Tire, A Bit Loud, Holds Up even when damaged, a real fuel saver.
