ADVAN S.T. has been developed as an ultra-high performance tire to suit the next generation of SUVs. The ST unites the best elements of truck and passenger tires and is designed to meet load carrying capacity as well as high-speed requirements of the new sporty, high-performance SUVs. Advan ST is available in 30 sizes, from 17 to 24 inches and with 65 to 30 series aspect ratios and has speed ratings – W and Y. The W-shaped multidirectional grooves are uniquely shaped in order to quickly expel water for enhanced rubber-to-road contact and grip on wet road surfaces. The continuous solid center rib provides exceptional steering response, high-speed capability and straight-line stability. Two wide circumferential grooves help channel and evacuate water for excellent wet traction. Large blocks along the shoulder enhance lateral stability when cornering. Five different sizes of tread blocks placed at varying intervals disperse pitch noise for a quieter ride. Yokohama’s steel belts are strengthened to maximize traction by keeping the tread flat on the road surface as the added tensile strength enhances rigidity and maintains tire shape. The new compound utilizes silica particles which create massive traction in hot, dry conditions as well as cold, wet conditions. ADVAN S. T. is for vehicles such as: Acura MDX, BMW X5, BMW X3, Cadillac SRX, Lincoln Aviator, Mercedes-Benz G55 AMG, Mercedes-Benz ML500, Porsche Cayenne, Range Rover HSE, VW Touareg.
