Yokohama Advan A048 Road Legal Race & Track Tyres
These tyres were devolved using Yokohama’s racing heritage and technology, aimed at drivers participating in Track days, Autocross, high performance driving schools and race events. It should be said yes these are road legal however should not be used in wet weather as the risk of aquaplaning is increased. The range for the Yokohama Advan A048 is large as you can see below and is available in many sizes, three different compounds to choice from compound S – soft, Compound M – Medium and Compound M/H – Medium Hard. The tyre is designed to be as stiff as possible this due to the single block tread design and having a larger centre area creating a footprint that is 100% always in contact with the road. Its wieldy documented that the tyre has predictable performance in cornering and overall steering this is down to the twin steel belts. The twin steel belts are placed on top of the casing this idea leads to the excellent performance when tackling them high G-force corners.
Key: S = Soft Compound, M = Medium Compound and M/H = Medium – Hard Compound
