The presented tyre is marked with 3PMSF symbol (Three Peak Mountain Snow Flake). It means that the tyre meets the EU requirements for winter tyres. The symbol is awarded after thorough tests of a tyre model in terms of snow grip.
Yokohama W Drive is a winter tyre of the premium class designed for the passenger cars.
Functional tread patterns, unique sipes shapes and the application of advanced rubber compound ensure splendid performance on every kind of surface. Optimal layout of the main longitudinal grooves enables the outflow of the melting snow and also maintenance of maximum tyre’s point of contact on all kinds of surfaces. Optimised grooves width between the blocks enables the outflow of the melting snow ensuring additional adhesion by the reinforced edge effect. Original, three-dimensional shape of the sipes with polyhedral surface ensures high performance on the dry, wet and snowy surface. Increased sipes density reinforces maximally edge effect on the snowy and icy surfaces. Tread depth indexes on the main groove compose the additional safety measures. W Drive tyres compound responds to wide range of temperatures ensuring optimal performance in various winter conditions. ‘Flexible polymer’ maintains softness and flexibility in the low temperatures. ‘Micro Silica’ with the particles smaller than the conventional silica preserves stiffness and stability in high temperatures due to the strong polymers combined, although soft polymers were used.
ZERUMA™ is a special addition improving the silica dispersion in the tyre, designed by YOKOHAMA. Silica compound ZERUMA™ lowers the dependence from temperature in comparison with the conventional mix method.
Asymmetric construction of the highly stiff tread ensures perfect balance of performance on the dry, wet and snowy surfaces.
Longitudinal, original, three-dimensional grooves with polyhedral surface guarantee high performance on the dry, wet and snowy surfaces. Tread depth indexes on the main groove increase safety ensuring information. W Drive tyre compound is appropriate for the wide range of temperature zones ensuring optimal performance in various winter conditions.
Yokohama W Drive is a winter tyre designed for the passenger cars. It belongs to the premium class which ensures highest quality.
