recently developed by Yokohama tyres to beat the tough conditions on such rallies and eventually help produce the winner, a great achievement for A048 YOKOHAMA TYRES.
Yokohama tyres are much involved in the field of motor sport and this is why they are amongst the Worlds leading tyre makers.
One of their latest feats was to supply the tyres to winning car driver taking part in the Rallyof Scotland, driving his Subaru in the Production Cup category. Although this happened at the end of last year ,I have not yet had time to do a A048 YOKOHAMA TYRES tyres blog.
The weather on this rally was very changeable, with heavy rain and sunny spells for most of the race . This made the going on the gravel stages very slippery and tough and not very consistent. This caused many drivers to spin out of control and there were many crashes and competitors having to drop out. The main tyres used in this event were the gravel tyres the A053, this was recently developed by Yokohama tyres to beat the tough conditions on such rallies and eventually help produce the winner, a great achievement for A048 YOKOHAMA TYRES.
Here at Pellon tyres this week we helped a customer out of a dilemma, he had bought a set of new alloy wheels and Yokohama A048-R new tyres. These A048 YOKOHAMA TYRES are made by Yokohama to suit all motor sport needs. These tyres will give a superior control in both wet and dry driving conditions and are specially important to the amateur track day drivers. Any way this customer called out a mobile tyre fitter to fit his A048 YOKOHAMA TYRES but the fitter could not fit them as they were too difficult to fit.
We were able to fit his Yokohama tyres ?
He then brought his tyres and wheels to us at Pellon tyres for us to have a go. Alex and the other lads had to problems fitting and balancing the wheels they were truly professional. Our customer is going to use the wheels at a track day in Oulton Park, driving his wonderful Honda S 2000 sport car. We hope he has a great days racing and thank him for some pictures of his car for my blog.
