Yokohama Avid Envigor Tire Review & Rating

The number of choices in high performance all-season tires are numerous, but one that continues to rank highly in this category is the Yokohama Avid Envigor. With H, V and W-speed ratings that go along with a wide variety of sizes, the Envigor is designed to fit all types of sport coupes, sedans and crossovers.

One of the bigger reasons the Envigor has remained so popular is due to its handling capabilities. Yokohama uses a silica tread compound to go with Uni-bloc shoulders and a continuous center rib that is tapered, which combines to increase grip and handling on both dry and wet surfaces. Groove-in-Groove technology reduces tire stress and adds more stiffness to the sidewalls for added handling.

The tread contact patch is optimized to provide more contact with the road, which results in better overall wear and increased rolling resistance. A Six Pitch Tread Variation separates the tread blocks and staggers them in a way that greatly reduces road noise, which countless drivers has mentioned as a real plus in reviews on this tire.

Wet road traction, as well as light snow driving, are enhanced through 3-D sipes, angled grooves and intermediate tread blocks. It also reduces hydroplane resistance and gives you added confidence when the weather turns bad.

Inside the tread on the Envigor you will find two steel belts that are spirally wrapped with a jointless nylon cover to provide enhanced stability and durability at high speeds. This also increases riding comfort and gives the tire more even wear. Yokohama offers sizes ranging from 15-20 inches, and all sizes come with either an H, V or W-speed rating. A 45K or 60K mile tread warranty is also included depending on the speed rating.

Pros  
  • Excellent dry and wet traction
  • Cornering grip is above average for all-season tires
  • Tire is quiet and ride comfort is equally impressive
  • Very good value for the money

Cons

  • While snow and ice traction are acceptable, it could be better
  • Increase the treadlife a bit

Overall Thoughts

As high performance all-season tires go, the Avid Envigor remains in the upper half of the class despite showing its age. While newer models like the Continental DWS06, BFGoodrich Comp-2 A/S and a few others have upped the performance levels, the Envigor still has its spot here. While not performing like a beast in the corners as some other tires in this class, traction and grip are very good on a variety of road surfaces and conditions. The ride is smooth and road noise is minimal.

Our biggest area of concern here is the relatively poor winter performance on ice and deeper snow. It doesn’t have the traction capabilities of some of the better models in its class. However, this is a common issue with HP all-season tires. Yokohama offers a wide array of sizes to fit most any vehicle, and they also include a solid warranty. Another area that we’ve heard complaints from a few drivers is treadlife. Although we have no issues with treadwear, some have said it was less than expected.

Overall, if you’re looking for a dependable and reliable high-performance all-season tire that has proven itself over the years, the Avid Envigor remains a solid choice. That said, if you’re looking for a more aggressive tire that sports the latest in tire technology, you might want to opt for the higher performing BFG Comp2 A/S, Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus or the newer Michelin Pilot Sport A/S3 Plus.
