The new ultra-high performance (UHP) Advan A052 is Yokohama Tire Corp.’s latest street-legal and race-ready tire.

The A052 is available in 19 sizes, from 16 to 18 inches. The A052 is engineered for superior handling, increased traction and improved lap times. The company says it delivers proven performance and extremely high levels of wet and dry grip.

The Advan A052’s powerful cornering capability is accomplished through a new asymmetric pattern, which features a stable outer compound rib with a notched micro groove for enhanced heat dissipation.

Straight-line stability and outstanding wet traction are supplied by the two wide inner circumferential grooves.
