Yokohama Rubber expands its global flagship ADVAN brand with the release of the “ADVAN Neova AD08RS” street sports tire for the European Market. The company plans to gradually make the tire available in 31 sizes, ranging from 185/55R15 82V to 255/30R19 91W.
A re-engineered version of the “ADVAN Neova AD08R”, the “ADVAN Neova AD08RS” has been fine-tuned to meet Europe’s ECE R117-02 S2WR2 regulation* and raise its environmental performance. While keeping the tread pattern that earned the “ADVAN NEOVA AD08R” a strong reputation for excellent control in dry and wet conditions and superior abrasion resistance, the “ADVAN Neova AD08RS” uses a new compound that reduces rolling resistance. The new tire achieves an excellent handling and low fuel consumption that will fully satisfy driving enthusiasts craving for “speed & fun”.
*ECE R117-02 is an international standard established in June 2010 by the UNECE (United Nations Economic Commission for Europe) that stipulates technical requirements for tire noise, rolling resistance and wet grip performance.
