    I came across this on TireRack today. Some "test" results which included the Yoko Advan Flevas:

In 195 60 I've driven Kumho Sense- meh GT tire; Altimax RT43- better GT tire but not great; Cooper Weathermaster ST2s- not good in snow/ice, competent but wobbly elsewhere; and Falken RT615Ks- cheapish warm weather rubber only, cycles out fast on the street.
      I think this post may be referring to the Vredestein 'Quatrac 5'. The Sportrac 5 is a summer tire (Tirerack lists them as high performance summer). I just bought a set and really like them. Good wet and dry grip, smooth breakaway characteristics, quiet, and good uniformity. If you don't want to go with a no-compromise, extreme performance tire like the Falken RT615K, and you don't need an all-season, they're great. I hope they are still available in the U.S. when I need another set.
