Which one is the Better Tire ... Continental or Yokohama?

Which is the better tire? Price difference is so small that it doesn't really matter. I want better fuel economy/durability. Handling/traction/road noise really don't matter to me.

Any experience with these tires? My stock tires were AVID S33 and my fuel economy was pretty good. Those were replaced by the YK520 which lowered my fuel economy by a lot...I want to say 4-5 mpg.

I want something that gives comparable/better fuel economy to the S33 and last a little longer.

Was looking around at replacement tires and came across this old post. I've heard good things about the Continental DWS and they're supposed to be fantastic when wet. Not sure about Yokohamas except that they had stiff side walls.

If you don't get a lot of snow or rain, Yokohama would probably be the better choice. Or maybe even a set of Michelin Pilot Sport.

I have Yokos for the last 6 years and I would never turn back. Great for all conditions, especially in canada we got all sorts of weather conditions like snow and rain and whatever it may be.

I've head many great reviews about the continental too, but never tried. As I've been satisfied with my yokohamas

Never had Michelin until this year and I don't like them. Planning to go back to the Yokohamas. I found that the michelin didn't grip as well as the Yokos.

I think Yojohama is greatly underappreciated, but it's a really good and solid choice. Also money-wise. I have been using Yohohamas for quite some time now and would not change them for a world. Glad that boys from Tire Outlet: Cheap summer and winter tires - tires-bestprices.com recommended them to me.

Looking to buy tires.. but fuel economy is the main concern over traction/handling... I'm still a bit confused over this

But you're buying into a $150k, gas can't be that bad for you, especially if you live in the city where the hybrid system benefits a lot from it

That's partially the confusing part. But I mean.. typically when looking for tires, my main concern is traction, and treadwear.. That's pretty much it.

Hello everyone.
Just wanted to share a useful resource for those looking to find recommended tire pressure settings for their car model.

Yokohama Tire Pressure

Hope this helps!
