Yokohama Tire announced it has expanded its iconic ultra high-performance Advan line with the Advan Fleva V701. Now available in the U.S., the V- and W-rated Fleva comes in 67 sizes with 15- to 20-inch fitments, and offers superb wet and dry braking, crisp handling and a quiet ride.
“The Advan Fleva V701 was developed for customers who are looking to elevate their driving experience,” said Duane Sampson, Yokohama product marketing manager. “As Yokohama’s latest ultra high-performance summer tire, it features a silica-infused compound combined with tread features engineered to provide confidence in both wet and dry conditions while keeping road noise to a minimum.”
Benefits of the Fleva include:
- Powerful wet braking, which is achieved by jagged circumferential grooves that resist hydroplaning for shorter stops.
- Quick, precise handling thanks to solid outside ribs that increase block stiffness for high-speed stability.
- Excellent lateral grip for high-speed wet performance is provided by the drop point grooves which move the water from under the tread.
- A quiet ride is ensured via the offset tread pattern that increases stability and reduces pattern noise.
