Yokohama Advan Sport A/S+. FEATURES AND BENEFITS: All weather traction High speed controllability Longer lasting tread life High driving comfort levels. OVERVIEW: The Yokohama Advan Sport A/S+ is a high performance, all season tire manufactured for passenger vehicles and SUVs. Yokohama offers a 55,000 mile treadwear warranty with this model.The tread design and the all season compound increase the all weather traction. The detailed asymmetric tread design and the HS-2 compound work together to enhance the dry, wet and winter weather road grip throughout the tires performance. This durable compound upgrades the rubber flexibility by preventing heat-build up and keeping the tire pliable in various temperatures. The tread heightens the number of biting edges gripping the road surface during the drive. These tread elements upgrade the grip on the road surface throughout the year. The treads circumferential grooves disperse water and slush from below the footprint, maintaining the ideal surface contact throughout the drive. In this manner, the tire prevents hydroplaning and upgrades the wet and winter weather performance.The model enhances the high speed controllability. The tread designs performance shoulder pattern manages to keep the tires surface contact at all times, which increases the steering responsiveness and the driving stability. As a result, the steering becomes quicker and more accurate in its response to the drivers commands, while the structure is stabilized against the driving pressure affecting the model. The better road contact, the durable heat-resistant HS-2 compound and the stronger structure work together to enable the tires greatest high speed performing ability. They prevent heat build-up during the drive and optimize the tires ideal shape under the high speed pressure affecting the model. In this manner, the tire is able to perform at its best high speed capability throughout its performance.The tread design and the durable compound also extend the tires usability. The optimized road contact patch of the tread maintains the tires surface contact at all times. This allows the tire to evenly distribute the driving pressure along the tread area. The equally spread out forces of acceleration, cornering and braking actively prevent irregular wear formations across the tread, lengthening the tread life and the tires usability greatly. This is further improved with the treads durable compound which prevents heat build-up and, in turn, decreases the tread wear rate.The Advan Sport A/S+ features a four-pitch variable sequence which lowers the road noise levels heard during the drive. The pitch sequence creates a special sound frequency that negates the sound waves generated while the tires are in motion. This frequency cancels out the road and tread pattern noise before they can reach the vehicles cabin and ruin the passengers driving enjoyment. The result is a quiet and comfortable driving experience.
