Top Yokohama ADVAN Neova AD08RS Review

Given 71% while driving a Subaru Impreza WRX STI (215/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 3,000 spirited miles
I’ve had 2 sets of the previous Ad08r compound on the car before for road/ track use and 2 trips to the Nurburgring and they were excellent but the new Ad08rs tyre is not as good , the compound is a lot harder and I thought the car struggled with dry grip at the Nurburgring this time around , the car lacked the confidence the previous R compound gave .
I will be looking else where for a Trackday tyre in the future I’m sad to say

Given 60% while driving a MINI JCW 2017 (205/45 R17) on track for 4,000 spirited miles
It is totally different from the old AD08R, which I still run on the S2k and luckily still have a spare set. I purchased these RS for the Mini JCW for trackdays and Ring, and sad to say I even found the stock Pirelli PZero performing better. These RS are not able to get descent grip, squeel like crazy, and provoce massive understeer, unless you get some real temp in there. But still than they lack that 'bite' and direct response you got from the old tyre. Trying to play with tyre pressures, but I just cannot get it as I would 've expected I've been loyal to the AD08 series for years, but will be stepping to PSS or Cup2s for future purchases. Sad what you did here to a used-to-be-brilliant tyre, Yoko

Given 71% while driving a Toyota MK3 MR2 Roaster (225/45 R16) on mostly country roads for 10,000 spirited miles
After 2 sets of TOYO R1R and 3 sets of AD08R I was forced to buy 08RS because I could not found the old but trusted 08R. The difference on the compound with the old rubber is immediately noticeable. Less grip and lower limit on the dry. And a lot of noise when coming to the limit. Still very predictable though on and after the limit. Small use on the wet but still does give you the same confidence the old rubber used to have. Generally harder rubber and this is also reflected on the wear which is the only plus side.

Given 96% while driving a Honda Civic Type R (225/40 R18) on a combination of roads for 3,000 spirited miles
Running the old AD08R I found that they had a short heat range would be OK once up to temp but then really driving the car extremely hard for about 15 20 miles they would become greasy loosing traction the tyres go off becoming grained/But the new version the AD08Rs are great the tyre once up to running temp and driving flat out the tyres just keep getting better and don't go off our grain can handle the higher temperatures maintaining good grip well impressed with the new AD08Rs over the older version

Given 24% while driving a Honda Civic Type R (215/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 4,000 spirited miles
The new AD08RS tyre is just not good, feels like a hard cheap tyre, hardly any grip in dry, even worse in wet, doesnt give any feedback, once you really get some heat in and it gets better but its still not a patch against the old AD08R which was a good tyre before they discontinued and bought out this rubbish version, everything that was good with the old tyre is lost. Used to run the old AD08R Tyre which was excellent and i always re-purchased them, i will not be re-purchasing the AD08RS its really not that great...sorry yoko!, its been emotional. tra mate.x
