Homologated tyres are those that have been approved directly via a manufacturer. These tyres are ones that have met the standards and regulatory requirements of the manufacturer.
The energy lost when a tyre is in motion is known as 'rolling resistance'. This has a direct impact on fuel consumption.
A tyre's rolling resistance score ranges from A to G. Over the life of the tyre, fitting an A rated tyre could save you up to 6 litres of fuel when compared to a G rated tyre.
A tyre's wet grip capacity is expressed in Grades from A to G.
The difference in braking distances between each grade is roughly 3m - an average car length. This makes average stopping distance between an A and G rated tyre 18m. That's 4 car lengths.
The exterior noise grade of a tyre is expressed in decibels - accompanied by one, two or three sound waves, with one wave being the best noise level performance.
To achieve the best grade, a tyre’s noise level must be at least 3dB under the legal limit set by the EU.
The Yokohama V103 is ideal for premium, high performance cars and SUVs.
The V103 is engineered using a high grip compound created through joint development with high performance car manufactures.
The high grip rubber provides flexibility and strength specifically designed for high speed driving to ensure stability for high power sport cars.
The ADVAN Sport V103 provides balance at a high level, resulting not only in sporty performance, but also excellent wet grip and low noise.
The new compound developed for the ADVAN Sport V103 tyre was tested under challenging conditions.
