Yokohama YK580 Tire Review & Rating

The Yokohama YK580 utilizes some of the most advanced tire technology in producing a tire that is made to deliver strong all-season performance and dependable handling. In fact, it is one of Yokohama's top selling models,yet we have found that many drivers have never heard about it until just recently.

The aggressive tread design sports an asymmetrical tread pattern and unique tread block bridges that provide added support and give the tire a more quiet ride. To that end, Yokohama has delivered on this feature because road noise on this tire is nearly non-existent.

Performance on wet road surfaces is enhanced through sweeping rain channels and cross traction sipes. Together they work to "sweep" water away from the tread and add more biting edges in the snow.

Dry pavement grip and handling are enhanced due to the optimized groove ratio which increases the tread area by 9%. Yokohama's Uni-Bloc Shoulder design adds stiffness and more support to the outside shoulders and sidewall of the tire, which makes for increased cornering grip and stability.

Two steel belts that are nylon wrapped add more strength and durability to the tire, while also providing more even tread wear and a longer lifespan. Yokohama also includes either a 45,000 or 60,000 mile tread warranty on the YK580 depending on the tire's speed rating.

Pros
  • Grip in the corners is superb for all-season touring tires
  • Wet road handling is far above average
  • Road noise is virtually non-existent on this tire
  • 60,000 mile tread warranty is excellent

Cons

  • Tire can be hard to find at times

Overall Thoughts

The YK580 is simply a good choice in high performance all-season touring tires. It provides excellent performance on either dry or wet pavement, and Yokohama has virtually eliminated all road noise with this tread design, which is an area often mentioned in driver reviews and ratings on this model.

The tire maintains excellent stability throughout the speed range, while the steering is responsive and provides good feel. Winter handling performance is more than adequate, but we would like to see just a little more grip on deeper snow and ice. That said, this is by no means a snow tire.

The 60,000 mile warranty is nearly unheard of for this type of performance tire. All in all this model is one of the top 10 high-performance all-season touring tires on the market today.
