    Also as I have said, specific real world use ON A SPYDER I can tell you the ADVAN has significantly more dry traction than the Quatrac. Its not a small difference. Thy Yoko sticks and launches MUCH harder. I do not have real world comparisons in the rain, but do have lots of experience with the Yoko in the rain and hydroplaning is simply not a problem at any sane speed.
    Well I guess the tire testers at TIRE RACK are ignorant of this fact - even though they do comparisons of Different brands of tires on the SAME test vehicle. The fact that we use lighter weight Spyders is irrelevant ... Peter and I have done extensive research on what are the best PSI's to use in an Auto tire.... Mike

    What model Advan was that?
