The ADVAN Sport is Yokohama’s Max Performance Summer tire developed for the drivers of sophisticated sports cars, sports coupes and high performance sedans. The ADVAN Sport is designed to combine a high degree of comfort, high-speed durability, and a high level of traction in dry and wet conditions. Like all summer tires, the ADVAN Sport is not intended to be driven in near-freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice.
The ADVAN Sport features a silica blend tread compound developed to provide grip that’s less affected by ambient temperatures. The compound is molded into an asymmetric tread pattern featuring five main ribs including a massive, outboard shoulder zone to blend handling with ride and noise comfort. Four wide, circumferential grooves help water flow through the footprint to resist hydroplaning.
The tire’s internal structure features two wide steel belts reinforced by spirally wound nylon cap plies to provide strength and uniform ride quality, while the sidewalls are tuned to resist lateral deflection and provide predictable handling.
