Lightning grooves provide a sense of reassurance on rainy days
Employs big and small lightning type grooves. YOKOHAMA has expanded the groove volume while increasing block rigidity to enable safe and secure driving on rainy days.
Quietness for a more comfortable ride
Innovative, new 'noise-controlled pitch' ensure a consistently quiet ride.
While continuing to ensure that noise is dispersed by varying the pitch, BluEarth-A tyres suppress the incidence of uneven wear and maintain quietness as the tyres wear by making the pitch variation smaller. New BluEarth-A tyres also boast an enhanced level of quietness by increasing the number of pitches to 84.
BluEarth-A AE-50 compound
BluEarth-A AE-50 special compound that elicits exceptional maneuverability.
YOKOHAMA employs technologies and manufacturing methods in order to realize the best balance of fuel efficiency, wet grip and wear resistance. The use of double silica and orange oil improve grip performance on wet roads.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.
Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.
The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.
With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.
Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.
Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.

05.03.2021 from Yaro This is my third set of Yokohama. The best tyres I have ever had. Very good grip especially on a wet road. Definitely buy again.
