    Latest Yokohama BluEarth Winter V906 Reviews

    Given 88% while driving a Aston Martin (275/35 R19) on mostly motorways for 1,000 easy going miles
    With limited options available to me at the time, I had these These V906 winter tires fitted at the last minute for a trip out to the Swiss Alps around New Year. They impress, with solid performance in cold weather and light snow - all without complaint. I've had winter tires before and am of the opinion that these provided a quiet, compliant ride without feeling soggy. They are of course hugely more confident on winter roads than my summer tires but as the Aston V8 is a powerful RWD car I was taking great care on those Alpen roads and certainly not pushing it. .

    Put these on in UK winter 2022/2023 as there was no other option and I was sceptical at first. However on our wintery roads and cold mornings I found these to do the job in suburban UK. For going to work, to the station, the school run and sitting in traffic, I have no problem. I did notice a massive improvement on these wintery mornings over my summer tires (Bridgestone Duellers) which when on summer tires my 2.5 tonne SUV did slide and lose grip in the same conditions. A lot of people do go for Crossclimate 2s but I prefer to have dedicated summer and winters on the car and yeah the Yokos do the job. I've not put them through a tough wintery challenge but I think part of the issues people have is down to how they drive. IMHO most people haven't got a clue how to drive in the winter. Would I but these again? If I had to then yes but I would have preferred more choice. Ultimately, they are better than summers or all seasons on the car and I want to be able to get around in the winter.
