All summer tires

I remember a couple years ago, Yokohama made an all summer tire (Yokohama AVS ES100) but I can't seem to find it online anymore.

I did a pretty thorough search online for an all summer tire but could not find any.

All I could find were all season tires.

Any recommendations for an all summer tire only in 195/60R15?

Thanks

Go to Tirerack.com, enter your tire size and filter by category, then performance.

That is the first place I looked.

Only results that show up are high performance all season.

I am looking for summer only tires, not all season.

The ES100 was discontinued in that size quite a while ago.

Not really any high performance summer tires left in that size, I'm afraid. Personally I go with the Sumitomo HTR A/S.

Sometimes you have to try a different size with a similar diameter to get the choice that you want. There is a good choice in 205/50-15.

This is what I run. Common on Miatas, so high performance tire choice will be decent in this size for some time.
