A tyre for everyday motorists who want save money on fuel. The BluEarth AE01 ‘ eco tyre’ gives a quiet and smooth ride and reassuring grip on wet slippery roads and, unlike other low rolling resistance tyres that often lack grip in the wet, grip is restored by Yokohama’s patented Orange Oil and silica rubber compound. “Go 8% further on a tank of fuel”!
The Eco Tyre
The C.drive2 is for a step up from the BluEarth AE01. It offers better handling for everyday motorists or families looking for a safe feel and secure grip on wet roads.
The asymmetrical pattern gives a smooth and quiet ride and crucial stability in emergency situations. The C.drive2 suits hatchbacks, medium size sedans, people movers and vehicles with sports or luxury pack upgrades. Read More
C.drive2 features a new compound with polymers that have a higher molecular weight and increased volume of silica than previous types. The long polymers are intertwined with one another, increasing the strength of the rubber to provide excellent handling performance. Using more silica while reducing carbon helps to reduce heat, thus lowering rolling resistance. The addition of orange oil makes the rubber more flexible, for better gripping performance in both dry and wet conditions.
The C.drive's 'Full Logic' asymmetrical tread pattern has now been enhanced even further. The positioning of the grooves provides superior performance on both wet and dry surfaces. The maximized contact area in the outer zone and the shortened lug grooves on the inside shoulder are designed to maintain rigidity when cornering, whilst the four wide straight grooves. The spiral drain grooves on the centre ribs are effective in draining water. Diamond-shaped bevels ease the stress on the central rib, which prevents uneven wear.
