Yokohama A.drive AA01 is a tyre designed for everyday driving, both in city traffic and on longer routes. It has a symmetrical tread pattern that provides a balanced performance on any type of surface. The tyre guarantees driving comfort and high performance in all conditions, while precise control is ensured even at very high speed.
The lightweight rubber compound allowed the designers to achieve lower rolling resistance, which contributed to a decrease in fuel consumption. Users of Yokohama A.drive AA01 may expect significant savings due to lower fuel consumption. Lower fuel consumption is also of great importance for the environment, as it means reduced CO2 emissions. The central part of the tread is made of two straight ribs with a zigzag incision to maintain efficient communication between the steering system and the tyre. The unique design of the tyre and modern technologies applied in its production ensure precise control and smooth travelling even on rough surfaces and poor-quality roads. Three wide grooves ensure the fast evacuation of water from under the tyre, and they are also responsible for better grip and a reduced risk of aquaplaning. They make driving safe even during bad weather. Solid shoulders ensures high stability, very good performance and smooth control during dynamic manoeuvres like lane changing or sudden braking.
The tyre is manufactured by the Yokohama Rubber Company Ltd., a Japanese company which is part of the Furukawa Group. Yokohama is the seventh largest tyre manufacturer in the world and second biggest supplier of tyres in Japan. The brand specialises in premium tyres for passenger cars, 4x4, trucks, racing cars and industrial vehicles. Its products combine high quality with maximum performance.
