The BluEarth-Van RY55 is Yokohama’s new fuel efficient tyre for vans providing the perfect combination of wear resistance, wet grip and fuel efficiency. Wear resistance and wet grip performance have been enhanced by the development of a special tread pattern along with a revised profile that optimises surface contact and pressure. The new compound includes triple polymer to boost the tyre’s durability and resistance to uneven wear and silica to enhance fuel efficiency and wet grip performance.

Notable Features

Yokohama BluEarth-Van RY55 (presented in 2018) is a light truck summer tire, characterized by strong resistance to uneven wear and long tread life, as well as reliable wet grip and fuel saving capabilities. Yokohama BluEarth-Van RY55 The Yokohama BluEarth Van RY55 became a logical addition to the “green” BluEarth family of this Japanese brand, hitherto presented at the world markets by such models as BluEarth-A, BluEarth RV-02, and BluEarth-Es ES32.

When developing the BluEarth Van RY55, the engineers predominantly focused on significantly increasing the tire’s resistance to wear and fuel efficiency, as well as improving wet grip. Tread Design The wear resistance and wet grip of this commercial summer tire were improved due to the use of a special tread pattern. The wide shoulder blocks and deep slanted cuts of the Yokohama RY-55 increase the stability of handling response and the tire’s resistance to hydroplaning, at the same time efficiently preventing uneven wear. New Compound The unique polymers used in the Yokohama BluEarth-Van RY55 tread compound contribute to extending tread life and increasing the tire’s resistance to Created with the use of cutting-edge software, the Yokohama RY55 tread pattern ensures the optimum shape of the contact patch that ensures even distribution of pressure in the contact area. As a result, the resistance to wear of this new light-truck tire 2018 is 50% higher than that of the already existing Yokohama RY818 model.

Also, the manufacturer states that, compared to the predecessor mode,l the wet braking distance of the Yokohama BluEarth Van RY55 became 9% shorter, while rolling resistance was reduced by 19%.
