Hello and welcome to my Toyo Versado Noir review.

Sedans and coupes are all about efficient transport in ultimate luxury. But whether you’ll always ride in the intended bliss eventually boils down to how well you prepare and maintain your car. And even if you fine-tune everything else and forget a good tire, then you’ll still be far from enjoying a super-soft and compliant ride.

Inevitably, in such circumstances, premium all-season touring tires for coupes and sedans such as the Toyo versado noir tire feature highly in your priority list. Offering more than 30% extra tread over the nearest competition, better fuel efficiency, and a classy, comfortable ride, theToyo versado noir tire is designed to sustain the exquisite performance of premium cars throughout the year.

Who is this tire for?

The Toyo versado noir tire is a luxurious, expedition-style tire with all the essential qualities to offer a year-long, cozy, silent ride for drivers of passenger vehicles including sedans and coupes. The tire is meant to be driven around paved city roads especially when you’re looking to enjoy a relaxed ride when driving to the office, or riding back home after a hard day at work. The tire is less noisy, handles bumps well, and also negotiates corners very comfortably.

For this reason, the Toyo versado noir tires excel with car models such as the exciting Hyundai Accent, Honda Civic, Hyundai Elantra, Toyota Corolla sedan, Toyota Camry, Chevrolet Malibu, Ford Fusion, and more.

As I write this Toyo Versado Noir Tire Review, I can’t see this tire lasting the distance for high-performance cars such as light trucks and pickups.

And so owners and drivers of workhorse-like pickups and trucks should check out our all-terrain tires know to thrill off-road including the Toyo open country AT/2 tire.

What terrain is it mostly suited for?

This tire is clearly purposed for stylish and restful passenger autos which dominate our city roads, highways, with limited off-road rides. And true to form, the Toyo versado noir tire produces a top performance on-road. But even though you shouldn’t be excited by its off-road talents (the exemplary off-road masterKumho Road Venture AT51 wins off-road), it doesn’t shy away from an occasional off-road adventure.

This means that so long as your days mostly revolve around the city and venture off-track maybe on weekends, then your coupe has a trustworthy partner. In addition, the tire provides an enhanced grip on dry town roads thanks to the specially designed tread pattern and the used Silica compound, in the end scoring a healthy 70% on dry handling. Moving on, the Toyo versado noir tire still maintains a good performance on straight wet surfaces due to an increased sipe density on its inside tread.

What about in snow?

Well, according to Toyo Versado Noir Tire Reviewthe tire has more biting edges helping to increase its traction while driving in the snow and so it should confidently handle your commuting needs unless it’s extremely frosty. On the same note, consider its cousin – the Toyo Observe Garit Kx tire if you live in areas where winter is extremely punishing because it remains very liable even when winter is at its harshest.

On mud, theToyo versado noir tire would struggle at least when compared with all-terrain tires such as the Toyo open country AT/2. In summary, it scores 80% on both wet and snow handling- which is rated more than sufficient for most touring tires.

What about comfort?

Toyo has always done well on comfort in almost all their premium tires. And it’s the same case here. By utilizing their so-called ‘Silent Wall’ tire technology, they have ensured that they greatly reduce this tires pipe resonance in effect delivering a quieter ride- much like what you would expect in luxury cars.

Still, the rigid outside tread helps to stabilize the tread blocks which also helps make your drive silent ride not to forget the multi-wave sipes which reduce irregular wear and tear for a smoother, quiet ride.

Well, this is why all-season tires are recommended for leading coupes and sedans –they’re less noisy, cool on bumps plus skillful in cornering and braking. I know you’re wondering how it performs when paired with its rivals among them the Yokohama Avid Envigor and General G-MAX AS-05 Tires.…it’s generally at the same level!

And that means it’s possible to enjoy the luxury, safety, and the peace of mind that you deserve from your car with this tire.

It certainly hits a lot of spots, but is it expensive?

The manufacturer avails several sizes of the Toyo versado noir tire- from 195/60R15 onwards to 245/50R18– enough variety to choose from.

And once you get your perfect size, the improved silica compound which prolongs the tread life ensures that you get lengthy service (and more miles) from your tire.

Coming to your pocket, the tire isn’t that expensive if you compare its performance and the value it gives vis-à-vis the competition.

The starting price of $86.00 (205/60R15)

In comparison, the Yokohama Avid Envigor (205/60R15) starts at $86 with the General G-MAX AS-05 (225/50ZR17)Tire starting at $94 so we can say its competitive.

Plus there’s always that odd chance that you may get a small promotional discount from your dealer or local stockist. Lastly, you will get a treadwear warranty of 75,000 miles which is enough evidence that the vendor believes in this product’s longevity and potential.

If still unconvinced, you can even test the tire by taking advantage of the 500 Miles / 45 Days trial warranty before purchasing!

Should I buy it?

In the final analysis, the Toyo versado noir tire does well in most of the key aspects. From its comfort riding, quiet performance, safety and reliability on the highway all the way to its stability, this tire has the built and the energy to make your daily trips around the city more fulfilling.

The wet and snow handling, performance on dry lands, cornering and braking, the tire seems to offer at least a bit of everything that you may need for a pleasing outing along the highway.

It’s true that it’s not the best thing after sliced bread (tires-wise) but with additional advantages like better fuel economies than the competition, this tire puts its best forward so long as the talk is about quality sedans and coupes.

But in case you want to sample further choices, the accomplishedYokohama Avid Envigor or the bold General G-MAX AS-05Tire are good starting points.
