Yokohama treads new ground with 4×4 range additions

The V105 represents Yokohama’s high-performance standard.

With SUVs and crossovers currently accounting for a third of the UK’s best-selling cars of 2019 to date, and with the demand for SUVs increasing, Yokohama has extended its range with additional 4×4 products and sizes – specifically the Geolandar X-CV G057.

According to the company, Yokohama’s 4×4 tyre range has been developed to cater for the full spectrum of SUVs, crossovers and off-road vehicles to deliver “superior durability, grip, noise reduction and handling, no matter what the conditions are”.

New for 2019, the Geolandar X-CV G057 tyre is a highway terrain tyre developed specifically for the increasingly popular midsize and large high-performance crossover SUVs that promise performance and drivability. While delivering the comfort and durability required for these SUVs, the Geolandar X-CV tyre is also designed to provide safety, with an asymmetric pattern design for traction and handling on both wet and dry surfaces. The Geolandar X-CV is available in sizes from 18 to 22 inches.

The Advan Sport V105 is designed for drivers of prestige 4x4s and compact SUVs. It offers a balance of sport and comfort with excellent wet performance, low noise and low levels of rolling resistance for fuel saving. As the flagship tyre of Yokohama’s Advan range, it has been selected for OE fitment for the BMW M5, X3 and X4 models. Most recently, BMW selected the Advan Sport V105, featuring silent foam technology, as OE fitment on the new BMW X5 M Performance model. The ADVAN Sport V105 is available in sizes from 17 – 23 inches in diameter.

For serious 4×4 and off-road vehicles, the Geolandar X-MT G005 is the latest mud-terrain tyre for SUVs and pickup trucks. Designed to deliver even better performance on testing off-road terrains including rocky trails, the tyre’s ‘rock concept tread’ offers superior traction and improved drivability on the roughest of roads. The Geolandar X-MT G005 is available in popular off-road sizes from 16 – 20 inches.

Meanwhile, featuring an aggressive tread block pattern which contributes towards better performance and tread design extending to the tyre sidewall, the Geolandar M/T G003 provides better off-road traction, lower noise and improved mileage performance. The Geolandar M/T G003 is available in sizes from 15 – 20 inches.

From Yokohama’s BluEarth eco-range, the BluEarth RV-02 tyre has been designed specifically to cater for the needs of SUV drivers. This tyre has secured the highest ‘A’ grade ranking for wet grip performance. Not only does the new RV-02 provide greater stability in a variety of weather conditions, but also contributes to an unusually quiet ride which is often a challenge in box type vehicles. The BluEarth RV-02 is available in sizes from 15 – 20 inches.
