Yokohama Tire Corp. has introduced several tires at this year's International Tire Expo (ITE), including the AVID H4s/V4s.

The AVID H4s/V4s will be available this coming spring in 33 H- and V-rated sizes.

The tire ranges in diameter from 14 to 18 inches and will cover 90% of the market, according to Yokohama officials.

"The focus of the tire is performance and comfort."

The AVID H4s/V4s comes with a 60,000-mile warranty and a 30-day free trial.

Technical features include staggered block design, four wide circumferential grooves, multiple cross grooves and a continuous center rib.

On the commercial side, Yokohama also has rolled out the TY577, a premium long-haul drive tire available in four sizes: 295/75R22.5, 11R22.5, 285/75R14.5 and 11R24.5. All sizes come with a 14-ply rating.

In addition, Yokohama's Geolander H/T-S light truck tire will come in size 305/40R22 in February 2004.

"By adding a 22-inch tire to the Geolander line, we are better able to fit almost any light truck or SUV," say Yokohama officials.
