Yokohama ADVAN A048 Tire Reviews

Product Details

The ADVAN A048 is Yokohama's Track & Competition D.O.T. racing tire developed for drivers who participate in autocross competition, high-performance driving schools, lapping days and circuit-type club racing, as well as are Original Equipment on the Lotus Elise Sport. The ADVAN A048 is designed to take Yokohama's advanced racing technology to a new level in D.O.T.-approved tire performance by delivering precise control, sure-footed braking and predictable grip. ADVAN A048 tires are not intended to be driven on extremely wet roads with standing water where there is the risk of hydroplaning, in near-freezing temperatures, through snow or on ice.

The ADVAN A048 molds race-ready tread compound(s) (offering Medium or Medium-Hard choices in many sizes) that can be used to match the tire's capabilities to vehicle weight and performance, as well as track conditions and ambient temperatures. It features a "single block" tread design that increases tread stiffness and features a wide center area that stays in continuous contact with the track to enhance cornering stability, on-center feel and steering response.  The tire's internal structure includes twin steel belts reinforced with spirally wrapped nylon cap plies and belt edge strips. The belt package is placed on top of a rounded casing design that allows the tire to predictably handle transitions from straight-line travel to high g-force cornering and back.
