    I have been waiting patiently for these tyres for TWO long months gingerly nursing my current set.Holdcroft Honda put an order in and it been on back order ever since and long behold Yokohama pull the plug on this product line.

    I have been using this tyre on both Accords since 2004 and after 8 sets of tyres among the two cars I found them the best tyres for the UK in any weather condition. The average life was good not brilliant but the grip, noise,steering feedback the whole package was near perfect for my driving style.

    Shame I will have to settle for another tyre which I don't want.

    I can recommend Michellin HP Primacy's...
    I'm on my 2nd set. 1st set lasted over 55k miles if I remember correctly, and I had no issues with loss of traction in dry/wet... performance in snow was so so (as you would expect for all weather tyres).
