    Winter Yokohama Iceguard IG51V

    Anyone had these winter tires on the RRS? Experience/opinion? It's not on the "approved" list, is that a problem?

    Nobody replied, so I might do this myself. Had the Yokos installed last week ($1200 for the tires plus installation/balancing). We had a very good snowfall in Toronto over the weekend basically it's still snowing. Even the highways are still mostly snow covered this morning. These tires are great! They have real bite. I basically cannot make them slip in snow under normal conditions. I'm also impressed with the snow&gravel program of the RRS - pretty much impossible to get the tires spinning while accelerating. This and the Yokos seem to be a good combination.

    Re: Winter Yokohama Iceguard IG51V

    Hi, I've just purchased my first RRS HSE with 19" rims and need a winter tire. I live in the PNW and make weekly ski trips so wanted something a little better than the current S+M rated tires.

    How have you found these Yokohama iceGuard iG51v tires, are they a very soft rubber and not suitable for summer use? I'm trying to find a tire I can keep on their but that has reasonable wear.

    thanks for any input

    Sorry, I cannot really answer that question. They are great in the snow and mud, but I had removed them during the summer.

    i m driving since 2005 on Nokian Tires. The best winter tires is the Nokian. Close your eyes and buy nokian. In Asia we have too much ice, snow on highways i tested several marks. Good year very poor in winter, in summer. Dunlop not bad, Michelin is good but little expansive. If you want to drive safe with your family buy Nokian. For summer tires Michelin or Pirelli. But for winter nokian is the only solution for safe driving

    Rob - most folks who want a good "all weather" tire that they can drive year round, but have a winter mountain\snow flake is the Nokian WRG3. Check it out. The GY Adventure and Cooper AT3 are also good, but not available in Land Rover sizes.

    I ran the Parelli Scorpion snow tires for a few years. Very good tire but I trashed them in a dirt road last spring. They are very soft rubber. I have also had Blizzacks on my tundra. These are the best none studded tires out there for snow and ice IMO. They now come in sizes for our RRS. I'm getting them this winter as soon as the snow gets closer. Also very soft rubber so not dirt road rallying on these.

    So that is what it is. I left the Scorpions on in the summer and drove on a fairly rough gravel and dirt road several times. One after another I had to replace three tires that still had plenty of tread. I wasn't sure if it was bad luck or easily destroyed tires.
