I have a set of Yokohama Avid T4's on my Pontiac 6000. The tire is made for Summer ! excellent on dry pavement, very little noise and great handling. On wet pavement, it channels water decently enough to not hydroplane the car, but I am afraid to overspeed on cornering due to my winter experience with these tires... panic stops are sure to cause you to get into an accident, The deep grooves on the tires help to channel and keep the car going straight, but it just locks ups, there is no braking effect on the tire itself and the car just keeps on going... I was pretty lucky, when this happened to me i pumped my brakes (no abs) until it slowed down enough... I still ended up skidding through the intersection... so if you are going to put snows on for winter, you probably are okay otherwise.. I's go with a Michelin XGT type.. the ones I had on before... they gave me over 150,000 KMS on them before i went with the yoko's.
