Yokohama has announced the latest addition to its flagship Advan brand – the Advan Neova AD08RS, a street sports tyre that will be marketed in Europe from the first half of this year. The company plans to gradually make the tyre available in 31 sizes, ranging from 185/55R15 82V to 255/30R19 91W.

A re-engineered version of the Advan Neova AD08R, the Advan Neova AD08RS has been fine-tuned to meet Europe’s ECE R117-02 S2WR2 regulation (that stipulates technical requirements for tyre noise, rolling resistance and wet grip performance) and raise its environmental performance.

Yokohama says that while the new tyre keeps the tread pattern that earned the Advan Neova AD08R a strong reputation for excellent control in dry and wet conditions and superior abrasion resistance, the Advan Neova AD08RS uses a new compound that reduces rolling resistance while offering ‘excellent handling and low fuel consumption’.
