Anyone have any experience with these? I've had the Atturo AZ850 and liked them, and read some good reviews on the Yokohamas. Similar in price, and what i've read, these are a little more grippy.

These are running $129 while the Atturos have spiked in price, running around 150.

I don't see where they make it in a 275/40?

A Guy is correct. The ADVAN Sport V105 does not come in a 20-inch tire. If you are set on a Yokohama tire, I would consider the ADVAN Apex V601 tire. It comes in a 20-inch and was rated high by Tire Rack. Here is a summary of its comments::

"Yokohama ADVAN Apex V601
  • What We Liked: The quick steering response feels sporty on the road.
  • What We'd Improve: It's edgy in the wet.
  • Conclusion: A strong performer that presents a good value proposition."
(Note- Tire Rack is offering a pre-paid $80 VISA card if you buy 4 of its Yokohama tires).

You're right. For some reason, Tire Rack doesn't carry the 275/40-20 size- only a 275/35-20 and a 275/30-20. Here is what it says about the ADVAN Sport V105 tire:

"The ADVAN Sport V105 is Yokohama's Max Performance Summer tire developed for the drivers of high-powered sports cars, sporty coupes and performance sedans. Based on technology fostered through participation in motorsports and development at the Nurburgring Circuit in Germany (one of the world's most grueling race/test tracks), the ADVAN Sport V105 combines an increase in agile handling with a more comfortable ride when compared to its predecessor by featuring precision-tuned materials and structures. Like all summer tires, the ADVAN Sport V105 is not intended to be driven in near-freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice.

ADVAN Sport V105 tires mold a Microsilica and Orange Oil enhanced tread compound that helps the tread rubber remain pliable to improve tire adhesion and grip. The compound is molded into an asymmetrical tread design in which wide outboard shoulder blocks and circumferential ribs work together to promote dry traction and handling. Variable width circumferential grooves and asymmetric lateral notches help reduce noise and promote water flow through the footprint to resist hydroplaning.

The tire's internal structure features two rigid steel belts reinforced by spirally wound overlapping nylon across the tread with three layers covering the belt edges in the shoulders to combine high-speed durability and responsive handling. Yokohama's new motorsports-inspired Matrix Body Ply Structure technology features a rayon body ply that is angled in the sidewalls to maintain lateral rigidity while reducing tire weight to deliver more agile handling and a more comfortable ride."

What confuses me, is the price. It's a lot less than the ones you quoted. It looks like a superior tire, but priced less. I'm skeptical now, lol.

I have these on my 2018 Scatpack in 275/40-20.
I didn’t wait for the original RSA’s to wear down but switched to these with only 2000miles on the car. 3000miles later they have proved to be a lot better. Cold weather hurts grip a lot, but get them warm and they are pretty good.
The Challenger will still annihilate the rears on acceleration but cornering and stopping are very good.
They were a worthwhile upgrade.
I consider the original RSA’s 1/10 whilst I would give these a solid 7/10.
I had Falken Azensis in 275/40-20 on my 08 SRT8 and would only rate those as 6/10.

I had the Atturo AZ850s on my Scat Pack, and liked them a lot, easily a 7/10. Retailers picked up on their popularity and jacked prices sadly :(

I saw those links you listed, but Yokohama themselves don't list that size?

1019552

Maybe they did, but discontinued?

I'm not sure really. They could be a discontinued line, and these are leftovers, hence the price?
