Yokohama to launch its most silent tire ever on the Asian market

LinkedIn +

Yokohama is to make its Advan dB V552 available in Asian markets in November. The tire will initially be available in a total of 24 sizes, ranging from 265/35 R18 97W XL to 155/65 R14 75H, with further sizes added in future.

The Advan dB V552 is said to be extremely silent thanks to a meticulous redesign that included a review of all design elements – including pattern, profile shape, internal structure, type of parts, size of parts, and surface contact configuration.

In addition, the tire’s wet grip performance and fuel efficiency have been greatly improved thanks to application of a newly developed compound that improves the dispersibility of the silica.
