Going on a long car drive soon, and was just doing the usual "home WOF" (oil, fluids etc) and happened to notice that the tyres on the car are all Yokohama branded but on the left hand side theyre DNA Ecos and on the right, theyre S207's. All the same size/fitment.

Would it be better to have matching tyres at the front or rear rather than on one side ? Tread pattern appears very similar on all.... tried looking up info on these tyres but theyre obviously a Japan only release....

TIA

:)

On a front wheel or rear wheel drive car it isnt as important, although it is good to have matching pairs.. i.e. both the front match and both the back match.

If it's a 4wd car like my old VR-4 then it's best to have all the tyres matching. d:)

The newer DNA Ecos tyres (earth model) have a slightly different rubber composition than the s207's. Have a talk with one of your tyre dealers that sell yokohama's. I personally wouldn't run an unmatched set on the back or the front.

If I could find one that sold them I potentially would ask :-p
But the car has done a similar run when we first got it with the same tyres and didnt have any issues... they had a reasonable test when i had to perform evasive action to avoid some idiot on one side of the road and then again to avoid oncoming traffic..... :)
