Yokohama Tire Corp. has added the all-season Advan Sport A/S+ to its Advan line of ultra-high performance tires.

Backed by a 55,000-mile limited tread wear warranty, the W- and Y-rated tire comes in 65 sizes, ranging from 16 inches to 21 inches in diameter.

The Advan Sport A/S+ features a new, silica-rich HS-2 compound that "dramatically improves braking in wet and wintry conditions for dependable, year-round grip," according to Yokohama officials.

It also boasts extra-large outside shoulder blocks for enhanced cornering; optimized sidewall construction for crisp, responsive handling; an optimized contact patch area for equal pressure distribution and long, even wear; and four-pitch tread variation to reduce road noise and help ensure a comfortable, quiet ride.

"The Sport A/S+, engineered for a broad selection of luxury vehicles, high-end performance vehicles, sports cars and American muscle cars, offers a significant upgrade in braking and handling in wet and wintry weather over its highly successful predecessor," say Yokohama officials.

"More and more drivers expect the most out of their vehicles throughout the year," says Duane Sampson, Yokohama product marketing manager. "The Advan Sport A/S+ makes that possible, providing superior grip across all seasons, along with the backing of a standout mileage warranty."
