SANTA ANA, CA – Yokohama Tire’s latest member to the iconic ultra-high performance ADVAN family is the ADVAN Neova® AD09.
Available now in sizes ranging from 15-inch to 20-inch, the AD09 features extreme grip for faster lap times, razor-sharp handling, superior wet performance and constant performance on the street and track. A total of 51 sizes are planned for the AD09, which replaces the ADVAN Neova® AD08R.
“The AD09 is race-born and street-ready, and harkens back to Yokohama’s UHP and motorsports heritage,” said Drew Dayton, Yokohama’s senior product planning manager, consumer tires. “Its high-tech compound, casing and thread pattern combine the best of racing and science to deliver improved grip for unprecedented performance.”
Highlights of the AD09 include:
– Outstanding grip comes from a new tread pattern that sports large, continuous tread blocks that put more rubber compound to the road and track surface for a solid grip.
– Precision handling is achieved thanks to the all-new casing construction which features a high turn up ply that results in the strongest and most rigid casing Yokohama has ever offered. Also, a solid center rib provides constant contact with the road surface for lightning-fast steering response.
– Consistent performance is produced by chamfered grooves which improve wear resistance and maintain effectiveness throughout the life of the tire.
– Improved wet grip occurs due to a new, optimized high silica compound that provides improved grip for wet cornering and braking on the road and on the track.
