I can only comment on my A539s as I have no experience of any of their other tyres, and only limited experience of performance tyres from other manufacturers. Its the first 'performance' tyre I have ever bought and was stunned by the differnce they make, even on my tank-like, (1.8t) Nissan Almera 2.2 DiT... Of course they give superbly precise handling in the dry; (needing a powerful and controlled attitude to steering); I was hard pushed to get them to drift at all (probably due to the weight of a diesel engine), even pressing frictional limits, whereafter they would soon regain control; and scarily impressed by their wet grip too. Some might say ... Read the complete review

The latest purchase of tyres for my Fiesta Zetec was the Yokohama A539's. The price of £48 each seemed very reasonable for performance tyres. The first thing I noticed was the rather unique tread pattern which has nice diagonal criss-crosses in the middle of the tyre, although it's not quite as head turning as the Eagle F1's tread. The Yokohama's have been on the car for several weeks now and I'd say they are considerably better at gripping than my previous tyres which were Pirelli P700's and Falken 502's (admittedly budget tyres). The Yokohama's have a nice solid feel when steering, if a little heavy, and they virtually refuse to ... Read the complete review

I have had several different Yokohama tyres on several different cars. I would rate them generally as well above average. These A539's I would say are above average for Yokohamas. (Not quite the best) Basically they are very good in the dry. On corners they remain 'stiff' - they dont seem to give and just carry on gripping. In the wet they are also very good on corners. My only reservation has been extreem braking in the wet - a couple of times they locked when I had to stamp on the brakes (no ABS on that car!) there was, however, no other loss of control and grip returned immediatly. The best Yokohama I've had, was a directional one, the ... Read the complete review

Nice tyres for the dry they handle well provide plenty of grip in all circumstances and perform well/average in the wet as well. They are a "soft" tyre compound if there is such a thing for roads tyres and have used them on a variety of cars from Mk2 Golf GTI8v upto Saab 9-5 Aero (a seriously quick car). The Aero being a big heavy car had michelins on before and the ESP traction control just kept cutting in all the time, with the A539 corners I'd expect the traction to cut in just didnt so I could push the car more and as I write this they havent been properly scrubbed in yet having only done about 10miles so far! If you want a good ... Read the complete review
