This summer tyre offered by Yokohama is a part of popular BluEarth series. Yokohama BluEarth Es ES32 is a product of the highest class (premium), combining the best features of products provided by this Japanese supplier with even better performance.
Engineers and designers focused on three basic parameters that create a good summer tyre:
Very good grip on wet roads.
Low rolling resistance.
BlueEarth concept introduced by Yokohama focuses on environmental protection, too. This Japanese company wants its production, distribution and recycling processes to have the lowest possible impact on the environment. BlueEarth series indicates the direction of modern tyre industry, which is friendly to people and the environment.
The tyre has a symmetrical tread pattern, whose main task is to remove water when driving on wet roads. This is especially important in early spring, when the potential risk for drivers is higher due to low temperatures and frequent rainfall. Safety and good grip are provided by three wide circumferential grooves.
How do they work? When the tyre is in contact with a wet surface, these channels accumulate water and the tread blocks may fully contact the road. Additional incisions in the central groove help to provide better traction.
The sides of the tread are also nicked to maintain the running track and ensure better cornering, even during dynamic driving. Yokohama Blue Earth tyres are user and environmentally friendly, mainly due to an innovative rubber blend based on orange oil. This natural component replaces petroleum oils and is the foundation of excellent grip of tyres. In addition, the tyres are flexible, which increases the contact area with the ground.
