Tyre Test Highlights

2015 Auto Bild 215/55 R16 Technical Tyre Test - 7th of 10 tyres

  • Positive - Very quiet, good dry braking
  • Negative - Long braking in the wet, low resistance to aquaplaning, poor handling, low comfort

2012 European Summer Tyre Test - 205/55 R16 - 7th of 14 tyres

  • Positive - Top marks in the wet.
  • Negative - Relatively high wear.

2014 Auto Review Summer Tyre Test - 205/55 R16 - 8th of 16 tyres

  • Positive - High resistance to aquaplaning
  • Negative - Wet grip, low comfort
  • Overall - In wet braking - even better than the tyres Goodyear! However, on a winding road it lacks grip - the car slips sharply into a long slide. As a result - more than seven seconds behind the leader on the test track length of 2.3 km. But the tread pattern has no problems with standing water, the Yokohama tyres confidently resist aquaplaning. On dry roads the braking performance and handling performance are average, and in comfort, below average (for small bumps on the body transferred telling blows). This is partly determined by the fact that these tyres are XL, and this can only serve as consolation is that the eternal competitor Bridgestone, are even tougher.

Top Yokohama C Drive2 Review

Given 76% (breakdown) while driving a Audi A3 (225/45 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 24,000 spirited miles
C.drive 2 is a good allround tire for the heavy small car Audi A3 3.2.
The car handles quite nice with these tires on dry roads and ok in wet conditions.
The car has been tuned to about 400 BHP and the tires can handle the extra power.
However - the bushings are worn and the tires were unevenly worn due to this. Considering something that lasts a little longer but would certainly recommend c.drive 2 for regular use.

Given 91% (breakdown) while driving a Skoda Octavia (205/60 R15) on a combination of roads for 11,000 average miles
Great tyres, have them on Skoda Octavia 2.0 better then Continental Premium Contact 5 on my second Audi quattro A6.
They don't squeak on the limits just litely fizzing, tne loise is very low, I have 2 brand new in the front and 2 tyres 3 summers already in the rear so the wear is great. Using them in temperatures of +8 C - +28 C . I wanted to buy something else, but after new premium contact5 on Audi did not change them.

Given 61% (breakdown) while driving a Mercedes Benz C200 CDI Elegance (205/55 R16) on mostly town for 15,000 average miles
the worst i have used on a back powered car.
For front powered cars might be better .,. but for a Mercedes just don't do the job.

Given 87% (breakdown) while driving a Honda Fit (Jazz) (195/50 R15 H) on mostly motorways for 25,000 spirited miles
I'm using this tyre by accidrnt, because the tyre that i'm looking for was run out at the shop, so the shop owner recomend me to use this tyre, and as it turns out damn this tyre is good, i'm using a lightly tuned honda jazz 1.5l with a minor handling mods, tein s-tech springs, tanabe underbrace and a wider wheels.. I'm using michellin pilot preceda 2 before this tyre, and the yokohama really keeps up with it, since i feel an improvement from the preceda, and this tyre is really comfy, plus silent.. I'll sure buy again i've it is worn, oh, yeah.. This tyre is really has a good wear using this tire for 2 years and it still not degrade..

Given 70% (breakdown) while driving a Toyota Perodua Myvi / Toyota Passo (195/55 R15 V) on a combination of roads for 40,000 average miles
Using it on a Perodua Myvi with some minor handling mod as below:

1. GAB HA+ Hi-Lo Adjustable Sport Absorber
2. Ultra Racing Front Strut bar, 16mm rear anti roll bar, rear lower arm bar

When before get the adjustable sport absorber, I felt that it is good to use, feedback is good enough. Until I upgrade my absorber from stock to Adjustable. It always make me slide due to stability of car were significant better. Even Kumho Ecsta SPT KU31 which cheaper than this tyre did a better job when dry even tyre thread is half of my current set of Yokohama C Drive 2.

Due to orange compound used on this tyre, it is quite comfy until the tyre worned until 40% left and it is long lasting as well(Maybe due to I'm driving a sub 1000kg super-mini).

This tyre is alright if you are looking for a tyre which giving you comfort and a little bit progressive drive at the same time. But if you are looking for a tyre makes you confidence while at the corner. It is not a good choice due to softer tyre side wall.
