ERJ staff report (DS)
Tokyo - The Yokohama Rubber Co., Ltd., will next February release its "ADVAN Sport V105" tyre. This is the successor model to the "Advan Sport (V103)" for high-powered, premium cars. The new tyre will be available in 36 sizes from 205/55R16 91V MO to 255/30ZR20 (92Y), including ten sizes already fitted as original equipment. Yokohama will gradually expand the range of available sizes.
The V103 was released eight years ago. Yokohama said, â€œWeight was reduced while rigidity was maintained, producing more agile handling and more comfortable ride. Synergistic effects among the special asymmetrical, non-directional tread pattern - inside for enhanced performance on wet surfaces, outside for dry - a new compound created to provide exceptional grip, and a new "Mound Profile" precisely controlling block ground contact pressure, yield even stronger dry and wet grip.â€
