Let me just complete my post about this topic, as i now have both the Yokohama Avid Ascend GT , and, the General Altimax RT 43.
Both in 2356017, 102 H.
The Yokohama on my wife's rav, the General on mine.
Get the Yokohama for:
-mostly city driving, or you drive just point A-to-B (i.e. you don't see [spirited]driving as a "fun" part of life), always driving in full Auto.
-TURNS (it's like there's zero understeer. I don't remember my head ever swaying when taking turns)
-STOPPING POWER (especially if your rav is actually an LE [smaller brake rotors], and have switched to 17x7 alloys like i have on both of my ravs)
-driving where it rains a lot (rain is "nothing" for this tire)
-quietness. (but then now you can hear more of the engine, because the tire is really quiet.)
Get the General for:
-quick acceleration from stops (merging from residential street into the main road at the intersection),
-if you like to play a bit with your rav[you're usually in "sport" mode] or if you oftentimes need "agility" from the rav, such as changing lanes if needed, and space on the other lanes will usually be tight so you have to take it soonest the space is available (or you could miss your exit). This usually needs having to manually shift, dropping the gear to 4th.
The General is also good in the rains (but the Yoko is really great).
It's not as good as the Yoko in stopping power (but you can manually shift as needed, as a workaround.)
The rav would usually want to be at the 5th gear as much as possible, and simply flicking the shifter to "S" (which makes it drop to 4th usually) gives you more stopping power versus if you didn't. (Again,..as per my LE experience.)
If you're getting the Yokohama, take note that initially it may be quite slow.
Not sure if they're consistent on their mix, (on the tire compound), but when i put new ones on on my rav, i got fed up with it and switched to the General (at about 200 miles).
Note Tire Rack says tire "break in" is about 500 miles(to fully wear off the mould-release coating).
My wife's Yokohamas are now at 1,000 miles and i can say I can recommend them again, but based on above-mentioned driving needs/conditions.
Note you may have to play with tire pressure settings for the sweet spot of speed and comfort.
I have both of the tires now at around 36/34 psi (front /rear), at 75F weather (undriven).
I can sense both of these 23560 tires are heavier than the 22565's, but with the 23560's more car-like (less busy/boat-at-sea feeling), i don't think i would be going back to the 22565's again.
