Yokohama Tire Corp. has released its latest street-legal and race-ready tire, the ultra-high performance (UHP) Advan A052.
The new A052 is available in 19 sizes, from 16 to 18 inches. New features include an asymmetric tread pattern and compound.
“The A052 is engineered for superior handling, increased traction and improved lap times,” says Andrew Briggs, senior director of tire business planning, product planning and sales operations. “It delivers proven performance and extremely high levels of wet and dry grip.”
Yokohama says 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.
The company’s new MS compound provides extreme wet and dry grip and improved fuel efficiency.
Yokohama Tire Corp. is the North American manufacturing and marketing arm of Tokyo, Japan-based Yokohama Rubber Co. Ltd.
A052 applications include high-performance cars such as the Porsche 911, Mercedes C63 AMG, BMW M3, Mitsubishi Lancer Evo, Subaru WRX STI and many more.
