Yokohama Advan S.4 Tire Review & Rating

As a member of Yokohama’s Advan performance tire lineup, the S.4 has been one of their leading high performance all-season models. Developed for drivers of all types of coupes, sedans and even higher end minivans, Yokohama has added the latest in tire technology to make driving more enjoyable regardless of the season.

The tire sports a silica enhanced tread compound to go with a directional tread pattern to give the S 4 better grip and traction in all-weather conditions. Larger reinforced shoulder blocks provide increased cornering power, which is one of the strong suits of this tire. A staggered tread block design adds increased lateral stability and more precise steering response, giving the tire improved handling on all types of road surfaces.

Yokohama Advan S.4 Tire Review

When the weather turns wet the S4 has 3 wide circumferential grooves and Optimum Sipe Placement that help evacuate more water from under the tread. In addition, Aqua Tusk lateral grooves further enhance wet handling.

One area that the S.4 outperforms other tires in this class is in how quiet it is on the highway or even around town. Variable Pitch Technology and Stress Control Waves with multi-sized tread elements virtually eliminate road noise.

Inside the tire you will find twin steel belts with spirally wound nylon that provide strength and durability at higher speeds. It also increases tread life and makes for a smoother overall ride. A unique Tapered Bead Filler balances out cornering power with reduced road noise, resulting in greater driving enjoyment.


  • Dry surface handling and traction are outstanding
  • Very quiet tire that is surprisingly comfortable
  • Tread life is longer than many other all-season tires


  • Would like to see a little more snow traction

Overall Thoughts

Please Note: Yokohama will be discontinuing the S.4 in 2016 with the release of the Advan Sport A/S.

We rank the S.4 in the upper half of the pack for high performance all-season tires. While dry traction handling and cornering grip are outstanding on this tire, the wet and snow covered road surface traction could be improved upon. We would go as far to say that if you live in a Northern climate that sees more than its fair share of snow, consider a different model instead. That said, this tire is amazingly quiet on the highway. So, if you live in a more moderate climate, this model would make a solid choice in new tires.
