Passenger All-Season tires are for drivers who want a combination of a smooth ride, good wear and S- or T-speed rated durability along with all-season traction, including in light snow. Passenger All-Season tires branded with the M+S symbol are often used as Original Equipment (O.E.) on standard coupes, sedans and family vans, as well as some entry-level pickup, crossover and sport utility vehicles.
O.E. Passenger All-Season tires are typically purchased as direct replacements for worn-out pairs/sets of the vehicle’s original tires. They can also be used for other vehicle applications in complete sets of four or axle pairs if available in an appropriate size, load range and speed rating to match the existing O.E. tires’ performance category and specifications.
Founder at Tiresout. Used to be working as an engineer at Bridgestone Tires Akron Technical Center. The responsibilities included but were not limited to technical computing, indoor & outdoor testing of new tires.
Horrible traction control on wet roads and in the snow. Comfortable ride for highway and in general. Tires are not made for cornering. I do have a yokohama favorite and these are not it. This is my 3rd experience with yokohama tires.
Purchased a new 2017 Subaru Impreza Sport and the car came equipped with the Yokohama S34P 225/40R18 tires. Nice looking tread, rides nice and handled what little snow was in the area in Feb/Mar of this year (2017). Dealership put at least 40+ psi in the tires, as the max pressure is 51 psi. What I noticed not long after having the car, the wild swings in tire pressure. As spring gave way to summer, it’s crazy. Tires cold start at 39 psi and before long you’re looking at 41-43 and if it’s warmer out 75+’F expect to see 44 psi — for in city driving. Typical psi swing 5-7 up and down in temps ranging from 40’F – 100’F.Recent drive to Colorado (Breck) are from Nebraska .. started with 39 psi in the morning and by North Platte I was at 47 psi. Pulled over to check, and let out 7 psi. By the time we arrived in Denver, Genesee, all tires were at max 51 psi. Had to pull over. Traffic was bad, so found a spot to park hoping the traffic would die down. Not!! 😉 After about an hour, tires were still at 42-43 psi.. let out more.. down to 39 again. So far.. we let out at least 19 psi since the trip started (9 hrs earlier). Finally made it to Breck area (9,600 ft) and the tires were back up to 46 psi. Didn’t drive much while in the area with one trip to Leadville (10,000 ft) – thought we would have to pull over again, tires at 47-48 psi. Before leaving (days later), the tires were at 45 psi in Dillon. Released another 6 psi each before making the drive over Loveland Pass (11,991 ft). Tired reached 47 psi again! Did not release any pressure knowing we were heading to 2000-1320 ft elevation.By the time we hit Eastern CO, it was 101’F, driving at 75mph, and the tires were loosing pressure. Had to add air when entering Nebraska.All in all well over 22+ psi released from the tires, pain in the *ss, and added back in 12-15 back home. Nice tire but find something else.
Got my new 2018 Subaru Impreza sport around April great car but the tires however that came with it are probably as bad as having no tread when it comes to snow and ice. Wet traction with the all wheel drive is great dont really notice any slipping on the wheels. Dry traction is very good and smooth and not to much noise either, but overall worse things ever to have on your car in the winter.
I have over 46k on those tires and thread is still very good. They are a bit expensive but we will see how far they go. They are the original tires that came with my 2017 Subaru Impreza sport. I live in the northeast and was is a must. Add great tires and you’ll be good.
