I'm looking at these three tires from Americas Tire and looking for opinions.
1-Yokohama Avid Ascent LX $149 ea., 85,000 mile wty.
2- General Altimax RT43 $132 ea., 65,000 mile wty.
3- Cooper Evolution Tour $103 ea., 60,000 mile wty.

If anyone has any experience with any of these tires I would appreciate any feedback. Thanks.

I am assuming you have visited Tire Rack for any potential reviews? You can get some good feedback there.

I have the Cooper Evolution on my 98 Ford Ranger 4x4. They are a GREAT all season tire. I drive my truck in the winter to assist family and friends with snow removal. Never had any issues getting around. I have winter tires on my 18 Pilot, and I would say both cars are about equal in the snow.

The Altimax have been really good for me. But I do not need any snow traction where I live and IIRC, they rate below average for light snow performance.

Depends on which RT43, the T rated tires have the best snow traction for any all-season tested by CR. I have them and the snow traction is pretty darn good, and they're wearing really well.

What size and from where are you getting that price? - $132 seems kinda steep for an RT43, I paid maybe $100 per tire, with free delivery.

Thank you for considering America's Tire. All 3 tires you are looking at are good quality tires. Which is best for you depends on your driving conditions along with how you drive and what you are looking for in your next tire.

Those must be tires for a vehicle north of the Mason and Dixon right?

As stated, I like America's Tire Store for the free balance and rotate and free flat repair.

Check with your tire store. Discount Tire will typically price match online and you get the concierge features . Your preferred store may do the same.

Thank you for the recommendation. You are correct, Discount Tire guarantees the lowest OTD price on all the products they carry, if you happen to find a lower OTD price let them know and they will beat it.

Let us know if we can help.

I find those reviews to be less than helful as one person says the tire is the greatest tire they've ever driven and the next says it's the worst.
