These tyres from out of Japan are no doubt one of the finest tyres in the World. As all major tyre companies Yokohama Japan obtain their know how and expertise from using their Yokohama Motorsport Tyres products used in motor sport.

Series and their experiments with tread compounds on wet and dry road conditions.

Yokohama Tyres UK are also well known for their use of its “environmental orange oil technology” in the production of making them more ecological and providing an amazing fuel saving performance in its range of Blu-Earth and Motorsport . This new range is the Advan range and is one of most ECO friendly tyres out at the moment, giving the tyre much
improved cornering and handling at high speed and is also a very lightweight tyre, with very high environmental attributes.
“OE tires are also designed with a specific performance in mind. This could be high-performance handling, for example, to complement a sports car. Other vehicles might have been originally built with a focus on fuel efficiency such as in the case of hybrids. Buying OE as a replacement tire means the consumer can stay true to what the OE manufacturer had in mind when they built the vehicle.”… http://www.moderntiredealer.com/news/story/2012/11/oe-or-replacement-yokohama-breaks-it-down.aspx
