SANTA ANA, Calif. — Yokohama Tire Corp. (YTC) has launched the all-season Advan Sport A/S+, a W- and Y-rated tire with a 55,000-mile limited treadwear warranty.
The tire, available in 65 sizes covering 16- to 21-inch rim diameters, is designed for luxury vehicles, high-end performance vehicles, sports cars and American muscle cars.
The Advan Sport A/S+ offers a significant upgrade in braking and handling in wet and wintry weather over its predecessor, the Advan Sport A/S, the tire maker said.
"More and more drivers expect the most out of their vehicles throughout the year," Duane Sampson, Yokohama product marketing manager, said. "The ADVAN Sport A/S+ makes that possible, providing superior grip across all seasons, along with the backing of a standout mileage warranty."
Benefits of the Sport A/S+ listed by YTC include:
- All-season grip created from a new silica-rich HS-2 compound that improves braking in wet and wintry conditions;
- Improved handling due to extra-large outside shoulder blocks that enhances cornering while sidewall construction delivers responsive handling, the company said;
- Long tread life achieved with an optimized contact patch area that equally distributes pressure to promote long, even wear; and
- Quiet ride with a four-pitch tread variation that reduces road noise.
