FULLERTON, Calif. (June 6, 2005) — Yokohama Tire Corp. has released its Advan S.T. sport-utility vehicle tire to the U.S. market with Y- and W-speed ratings.
Yokohama said the tire was created as an ultra-high performance tire instead of a beefed-up light truck tire. The tire is designed to offer exceptional handling and steering response, according to the company, and also is meant to meet both the load carrying capacity and high-speed requirements for SUVs.
The Advan S.T. will be available in 30 sizes ranging from 17- to 24-inch rim diameters, Fullerton-based Yokohama said.
