Great tyre

published

They are very durable and give great fuel economy. Used to be a rattling noise on my old tires don’t have that issue here. Not much more you can say about them other than they are fantastic

Purchased in September 2019 at Bob Jane T-Marts for $452.00.

No complaints, 40,000 km

published

Got 40,000 km on front wheels on Toyota Corolla Fielder 4wd station wagon which seems reasonable, cant understand why some others are reporting lower mileage on these. Have replaced with ES32 version which seems quieter than the older model was . No issues with performance in wet or anything else.

I fine them dependable in wet condition very quiet on the road. I have 195/65/R15 on a Toyota Wish. I'm a none aggressive driver, I have the front rotated with the back just lately. I still fine the tires passing warrant of fitness (min. 5mm) it is still in 6mm.

Good in the wet, comfortable

published

These tyres are excellent in the wet. I have 175/65 r14 on a nissan micra. They are also very quiet and comfortable over bumps.
I make sure the car steering is properly aligned and they wear well although faster than expected. This was similar to the rate of wear to Bridgestone re002 which were basically impossible to lose traction with in the wet - there is commonly a trade off between wear and traction.
Great tyres and would buy again.

low noise and nice ride BUT 20k kms and nearly worn out on a VZ acclaim wagon

published

quiet, very low road noise
nice ride, smooth and firm and responsive on the road
handle great all conditions, wet or dry
durability very poor 20k kms and need replacing. I normally get 50-6.k kms out of a set of tires. I rotate them them every 8-10k kms. The wear is even on all the tires, but they do not last .

Best tyre I have ever come across

published

I found the tyres to handle well in wet weather and dry weather. Gives good economy comparatively very low road noise compared to the Dunlops I had before.90% of my driving is above 100kmph on motorways. Now 2 years after fitting the Blueearth AE01 tyres I have just topped the 80,000km (50,000mile) mark and the tread is down to the wear indicator level.I fill nitrogen to the manufacturers recommended tyre pressue. The nitrogen I beleive keeps the pressure uniform for longer than normal air. I do tyre rotations every 10,000kms with wheel alignments and all put together I squeezed out 80,000kms.

20k and worn out.

published

I have had 2 previous sets of Yokohama tyres that lasted 40 - 50k so I purchased Yokohama’s again. These BluEarth AE01’s must be a soft compound as I am an older driver and not hard on tyres but still wore them out in 20k.These tyres drive fine but wear way too fast for the average driver. I won’t be purchasing Yokohama’s again after this experience.

Similar experience- only 2 years/20k

published

The tyres have been fitted to a 2005 4 cylinder Camry automatic. The tyres drive nicely, are fairly quiet, and there are no behavioural issues.

But - despite routine 6 month front- rear rotations and rebalancings, these 2 year old tyres have only done 20,000 km of not terribly demanding suburban use, are evenly worn and almost at the tread wear indicators - ie completely shot and will need replacing in the next month or so.

Previous experience with this car includes 4 years/ 45k from a set of Michelin XM2 - and I will likely go back to Michelin at next replacement soon - XM2 or Primacy 3 ST.

They wear out very quickly - only 20000 on the front tyres.

published

While these tyres grip well, and seem to provide good fuel economy, they simply don't last. Whatever compound Yokohama is using, it degrades very rapidly. I got barely 2 years/20K out of the front tyres, and they're almost bald. Not good at all for a tyre at this price-point.

I wouldn't purchase again. There are much better options out there.

Nice replacement & priced well.

published

Just replaced the Yokohama Advans on my Corolla after 61 K (still 4-6 mm left) with these 4 for the price of 3 at Pakenham Tyres and More. They are quieter, grip is good in wet and unmade roads. Can't comment on fuel efficiency. Andrew did a great job (tyres/valves/balancing) - done while waiting & he indicated a similar mileage on these. Yokohama seem a good product to run with and the pricing was good.

Claims seem to be true

published

I have had these tyres for about a year. The claims about better fuel efficiency seem to be true, my car's (Mitsubishi Lancer 2010) fuel use is noticeably lower, particularly on highways and freeways (6L/100km vs 6.5L/100km). I have not noticed any excessive wear on them. Quite happy with my purchase and for helping the environment.

Long life, quiet

published

I find these tyres pretty good. Swapping them regularly and getting even wear on all 4 tyres.
I did 20k km already and barely worn, hoping for another 20k at least.
Compared to my previous tyres, Yokohama are very quiet and offer good grip in wet conditions.
Not much impact on economy but that's fine. Would definitely buy them again.

Good quality tyres nothing amazing

published

Bought these to replace my stock yokohamas for my Mitsubishi Lancer. Seen fine, good grip on wet and hard. Definitely quieter than the old ones but not as quiet as some reviewers led me to believe. Time will tell how long these hold up, so far they're going good with not much signs of wear.

Well under performed than expected

published

Since it was Bob Jane T-Marts Preston recommended tyres I was expecting to last at least 50k kms, as my original car tyres lasted 75k and this Yokohama tyres lasted 5 months with 27k kms.
Very disappointing result. My tyres warranty from Bob Jane T-Marts Preston talks rubbish. They blame my driving style and wheel alignment. I'm the same driver who drove 75k using the original tyre on my car.

Long life. Good in wet conditions.

published

One does not buy tyres often. These replaced the Yokohama A Drives which I previously had on my Toyota Avalon. I was really happy with the A Drives so I was disappointed when they were no longer available.

Bob Jane said the Blue Earth has a slightly softer compound so that would not last as long but would grip better. I cannot confirm this from my experience.

I find the Yokohama Blue Earth to be great value for money, excellent road holding, great tyres in the wet and long lasting. I do not plan to deviate from Yokohama in the future.

Good replacement for the OEM tyres

published

Fitted these to our Toyota Corolla, as it was an extra $25 per Tyre to get the Yokohama OEM tyres. They are very quiet, and the handling in wet conditions is excellent. I run them at 35 psi, rather than 32. Will swap over all tyres when the back tyres finally wear through - 5 years and 60k so far is reasonable mileage on the OEM Yokohama's.

Better economy

published

Back tyres are over a year old and front are new. The tyres are slightly bigger in diameter and we have noticed that the speedo is reading correctly and economy has improved out of sight. So far they have been durable and the noise in the car has reduced. The price was excellent so we think that they are worth getting again.

Just perfect

published

I got Yokohama tyres because there were the original tyres of my old car but i really didnt think they were amazing. Really good purchase. There are durable and resistant. I really felt the difference of performance in my car when they were installed. My car (and myself) loves it.

Questions & Answers

Sachu

Sachuasked

what is the 205/55/16 tyre milege?

1 answer
James
James

The mileage capable to be squeezed out of a tyre depends on many aspects. The tyre needs to be of a reputed brand to begin with. The main things are, consistently maintaining manufacturer recommended air pressure, regular tyre rotations , wheel balancing and alignments (10000kms) even with all that being followed negative driving habits such as loaded vehicle, fast cornering, regular hard braking will reduce the mileage significantly. So there is no definitive answer to your question.

supposed to be ~ 8mm but depends on tyres (off-road/passenger/commercial etc) and manufacturers specs. Have a look at the Aust Design Rules too for other information.

Try the Bluearth AE50s, they're a high quality tyre for medium-large size passenger vehicles.

Great grip in the wet, quiet on most surfaces and they offer great fuel savings.

They're about 20% cheaper than the equivalent tyre from Bridgestone, continental or Michelin which is a big plus.
