Yokohama Advan Apex V601

Recommended Posts

Anyone currently driving with these set of tyres?

I think this belongs to the UHP segment, so its competitors include Goodyear's F1A5, Michelin's PS4, Bridgestone's Potenza RE004 etc. The first two are essentially the best in this segment, so not sure if the Apex V601 can compete against them?

For me Yokohama is off my list. Wet performance CMI. The drop in wet performance from its dry is horrible vs other brands.

If I were to get Yokohama tyres, I will get the Advan series. I think they throw more R&D for Advan series. And they have their halo product there also. The Advan AD08R. Like when I get bridgestone, I will use Potenza.

It's been awhile since I am using Yokohama. The last time is when I am still driving my father van and I use the deliverystar 818. Those who are driving a van, no need to think. This is by far the best van tyres liao. haha.

Base on your list, I will strongly recommend either Bridgestone RE004 or Goodyear F1A5. You see which one the price better then get it or. Both are very good tyres for Singapore roads.

Try S drive. I have been using this for a long time. Good grip in wet and dry. Only a bit noisy.

I'm using Advan Flevia V701 too.

Not the quietest, and grip and handling all ok. I find it's comparable to PS3.

Want to try the AD08R next.

My past experience with yoko was quite good. 

 

BS to me is okay but kind of overhyped. And so it's their pricing.

I am currently running F1A5s, almost 8k mileage with them. Made an informed decision after reading the F1A5 thread here and other online tyre reviews. I was initially looking at Advan dB, but it's not available at my tyre size (225/45/r19).

It's going to be quite some time before my tyres wear out so I hope by starting this thread, there will be sufficient feedback by then for another decision-making.

I shortlisted RE004 to be the next set of tyres to run with, but if the Apex V601 is reviewed positively, I can consider either based on price.
