Yokohama adds 10 sizes to AVID TRZ line
Yokohama Tire Corp. has added 10 sizes to its AVID TRZ all-season touring tire. All of the sizes are H-rated.
"These new tires improve upon the TRZ line's considerable range of fitments to now include more European, Asian and domestic vehicles that require an H speed rating," say Yokohama officials.
New sizes include:
* P195/60R15 87H
* 195/60R15 91H
* 205/60R15 91H
* P205/65R15 92H

* P215/60R16 94H
* 225/55R16 95H
* 225/60R16 98H
Featuring Yokohama's Three Ride Zones for winter traction, water evacuation and cornering grip, the AVID TRZ contains the company's proprietary 3D Adaptive Sipes, a patent-pending design "that changes shape as the tire wears," according to Yokohama officials.
The tire also contains four deep circumferential grooves, "two of which are continuous for maximum road contact and grip," plus other features.
The TRZ "fits a substantial population of vehicles, ranging from the Toyota Prius and the Ford Fusion to the Chrysler 300C and Honda Odyssey," says Dan King, Yokohama's vice president of sales and marketing.
The AVID line also includes the AVID H4s/V4s, the AVID W4s and the AVID Touring S.
