The A008 is Yokohama’s performance tire developed for the drivers of classic Austin 7, Mini 850 and Mini Cooper cars. The A008 uses Yokohama’s latest technology to provide enhanced performance in dry conditions.
The A008 features a high performance tread compound molded into an asymmetric design that includes a continuous shoulder rib to enhance responsiveness and dry road traction. Circumferential grooves and independent tread blocks on the inner portion of the tire focus on hydroplaning resistance and wet traction. Internally, A008 tires feature a polyester cord body and twin steel belts reinforce by a layer of nylon to help deliver exceptional dry traction and predictable handling.
