Yokohama's Avid Ascend LX Offers 85,000 Mile Warranty

Posted on September 3, 2019

Yokohama Tire Corp. is updating its lineup of touring tires with the Avid Ascend LX, designed for passenger cars, minivans and crossovers and available in 39 sizes with an 85,000-mile tread life warranty.

The Avid Ascend LX from Yokohama features an optimized contact area that distributes pressure to combat uneven tire wear.

The Avid Ascend LX offers four key performance-related benefits: long treadlife, wet traction, winter traction, and a quiet, smooth ride. The 85,000-mile tread life warranty on all sizes (ranging from 15 inches to 18 inches) and speed ratings (T, H and V) is another bonus.

The tire is manufactured at Yokohama's plant in Salem, Va.

Here's a look at the four big benefits:

  • Long tread life that’s possible thanks to the new L-2 compound, featuring a distinct polymer blend that delivers upgraded wear resistance. Plus, a wide, flat contour provides a large footprint that evenly distributes pressure to combat uneven wear.
  • Wet traction is provided by four wide circumferential grooves, along with lateral grooves that help evacuate water and improve hydroplaning resistance.
  • Winter traction comes from the wavy 3D sipes on the shoulder and notches in the intermediate ribs. They provide effective edges for excellent grip on wintery roads.
  • A quieter ride from an offset tread design staggered in a five-block sequence that helps reduce pattern and road noise.

“The Ascend LX rounds out our Avid line and is the most complete touring tire available today,” says Bob Abram, Yokohama’s senior manager of consumer product planning. “It gives people what they want: exceptional all-season traction and comfort backed by an amazing mileage warranty.”
