COOKIES ON THE YOKOHAMA TIRE SITE
By design, Yokohama’s radial tires are constructed with lower aspect ratios than ever before. This allows them to respond to lateral forces more effectively meaning it takes less time to transmit the steering input from the wheel to tread. This improved steering response means better performance on the road but requires special attention be paid to proper tire mounting, balancing, and installation procedures to ensure that optimal ride quality is achieved. Vigilant attention to these details and regular maintenance will maximize your vehicle performance and guarantee a smooth, comfortable ride—mile after mile.
Day-to-day wear causes changes in the distribution of weight around the tire and wheel assembly, which can cause vibration. Balancing your wheels minimizes potential vibration felt in the steering wheel, seat, or floorboard and improves tire longevity.
No factor contributes to a negative operating experience more than vehicle vibration. The torment of operators everywhere, it degrades ride quality, shortens tire life, and strains vehicle components. Fortunately, steps can be taken to avoid operating under these conditions.
