Yokohama regional drive tire ready for winter

John G Smith

Yokohama Tire’s 715R open-shoulder regional drive tire is ready for winter, securing the widely recognized three-peak mountain snowflake symbol on the sidewall.

All four sizes — 11R22.5, 295/75R22.5, 285/75R24.5 and 11R24.5 – will carry the designation.

The SmartWay-verified tire also features a 26/32-inch tread pattern, complete with the tie bars that hold blocks in place and minimize heel/toe wear.

Traction comes courtesy of open-shoulder blocks, while fuel-efficiency is boosted with a cut-and-chip-resisting tread compound that also reduces rolling resistance.

It has a 16-ply construction and H load rating.
