Geneva Motor Show 2019: Yokohama launches Advan Neova AD08RS

At the Geneva International Motor Show, Japanese tire manufacturer Yokohama has announced the launch of its Advan Neova AD08RS semi-slick tire that will be put on sale in Europe this spring. The model will come in 31 sizes ranging from 185/55 R15 82V to 255/30 R19 91W that will gradually appear on the market.

Yokohama Advan Neova AD08RS is a re-engineered version of the Advan Neova AD08R semi-slicks, designed specifically to meet the new European regulations ECE R117-02 S2WR2, with increased environmental performance.

The new tire Advan Neova AD08RS has kept the tread pattern of its predecessor, which got a solid reputation thanks to outstanding handling on both wet and dry surfaces, as well as high resistance to wear. At the same time, changes were made to the rubber compound. Its renewed formula is meant to ensure lower rolling resistance.
