Yokohama debuts W.drive V905 winter tire
Yokohama Tire Corp. has added a tire to its high-performance W.drive winter tire line – the V905.
Available now for U.S. and Canadian tire dealers to order for this coming winter, the W.drive V905’s tread combines advanced technologies to deliver optimum handling performance for cars throughout the harsh weather months. V- and W-speed rated, fitments for the W.drive V905 include Honda, Mercedes-Benz, Nissan, Volvo, Lexus, BMW, Cadillac and Toyota.
“The W.drive V905 is our most complete high-performance winter offering to date,” says Bob Abram, manager, product planning. “The V- and W-speed rated tire was developed to be more durable, fuel-efficient and handle the most extreme winter driving conditions.”
Benefits of the W.drive V905 include:
* Confident handling: Advanced construction contributes to driving stability, while increased block stiffness provides self-assured handling in all winter conditions (dry, wet/slush, snow/ice) and temperatures thanks to triple 3D sipes.
* Fuel-efficiency: The lightweight design lowers fuel consumption and low rolling resistance is promoted by the advanced engineered Silica end-locked orange oil compound.
* Traction on ice and snow: Zigzag circumferential grooves work in tandem with variable angles while lateral grooves improve stability and help prevent sliding.
* Snow and water evacuation: Wide slanting grooves and a directional tread pattern provide drainage to combat hydroplaning.
