Yokohama unveils C.drive2 performance tire
Yokohama Rubber Co. Ltd. is rolling out its C.drive2 high performance "eco" tire in Europe this month. The tire will be available in 26 sizes, ranging from 14 inches to 17 inches in diameter.
"C.drive2 represents a basic change from the original C.drive model, Yokohama's high performance-and-comfort tire," say Yokohama officials.
"Retaining the basic concept behind the previous model, which is grounded in delivery of confidence in the rain and superb handling capabilities, C.drive2 was developed for a better wet grip while maintining low rolling resistance for fuel efficiency."
Yokohama plans to add 11 more sizes to the tire's line-up this summer. The C.drive2 will be on display at the Geneva International Motor Show, which begins tomorrow, March 2.
Other tires in the company's ".drive" series include the S.drive, a high performance sport tire; the A.drive, "an all-around standard tire;" and the W. drive, a winter tire.
