Finally have my summer tires

Yokohama ES100 235/45/17

The tires are on and my fist impression is... there not that bad.

The day is 45* and rainy. Tire pressure 35psi all around (cold)

I wanted good rain tires so I'm glad it was raining. I'm happy with how they handled today. I was able to easily maintain 50-60 mph on a circle on-ramp to the highway with no feeling of wanting to slide. They handled very good around town and stopped great on the wet cold streets. I had my 2 yr old with me so I wasn't going to get crazy with them.

I would rate the response 7 out of 10. At first, on highway, they felt a little washy as I moved the wheel back and forth. As they warmed up that feeling went away and became a little more tight, not as much as I wanted but not bad. I'm hoping that as the temperatue gets warmer that these tires will handle even better.

Road noise consisted of mostly rain and watter noise so I wasn't able to gauge them very well.

Overall ride quality was good.

I will try to follow up on these as I get more miles on them and have some nice warm days to really test them out.

Again my purpose for these tires was a dedicated summer tire for daily driving and possibly a few track days.
