Default Mirada Tires

Has anyone heard of this tire? A local dealer sold a set of them to my
wife today even though they quoted Yokohamas. I can't find anything
about them anywhere on the net.

Thanks,

John

Never heard of them. There are hundreds of no name tire brands kicking
around.

If I were quoted Yokohamas and then the installed mystery brand tires I
would absolutely demand that they pull off the no name junk and install what
I paid for.

I found one mention of them on an Honda enthusiast website, claiming
they were a high mileage tire made by Yokohama...but no other mention.

There is the Parada series of Yokohama, but those are a high
performance model.

The DOT code on the side will indicate the maker, but you could
always just head for the store and ask them what gives...

For what it's worth, I also got sold a pair of them by my local tire
shop, and the paperwork says:

Stock # SIZE DESC
21804 195/50VR15 MIRADA BY YOKOHAMA BK

The sales clerk claimed they are Y-rated, although like you guys, I
can't seem to find any documentation for them anywhere online.

Just another data-point...

I'm looking to replace the tires on my 2000 Accord. The Yokohama looks like
a good tire for wet traction, but I'd also like a tire that gives a good
ride
and runs QUIET. Any comments?
