The Yokohama A.Drive tyre is a long-life tyre which provides fantastic comfort for mini, compact and also small family cars. The silica compound on the A.Drive optimises contact pressure on the road. The compound also minimises the temperature difference between the surface of the road and the tyre. Yokohama developed the A.Drive to provide superior grip throughout the life of the tyre. The tread also has the latest research and development from Yokohama to provide you with a relaxed and enjoyable drive for everyday motoring.
The technologies which make up the A.Drive also includes Yokohama’s AQUA-PROOF tread design. The triple wide straight groove design is at the heart of the excellent water dispersing, providing you with better handling in the wet. Consequently Yokohama believe, no ordinary tyre can match.
