Yokohama BluEarth*Winter V906



Manufacturer's description

Features & Benefits:

  • Smooth V-Shaped Groove (Smooth-angled V-shape helps displace water and snow);
  • Uniform Pressure Blocks (Each block is positioned in a uniform manner. The pressure from the ground is spread evenly);
  • Widespread 3-D Sipe (The 3-D sipes are spread out widely from block to block, enhancing the edge effect on snow and ice. The 3-D sipes prevent block corrosion, thus realising firmer ground contact);
  • Super Rich-Silica Compound (A large amount of silica is used, contributing to superb wet performance. Snow polymer is blended to enhance snow performance);
  • A.R.T Mixing Technology (Advanced Reaction Technology in Mixing A.R.T. Mixing Technology makes the compound more flexible. Larger contact area contributes to better wet performance);
  • Robust Construction (Robust construction enhances stability. Low-heat-generating under-tread for low fuel consumption);
  • Optimised Profile (Ground contact area increased by 10%. Surface grip increased for better wet & snow traction).

Notable Features

Yokohama BluEarth"Winter V906 is a friction winter tire for mild weather conditions that combines all the key features important for European drivers: high hydroplaning resistance, performance on snow and ice and dry-grip performance, and a high level of wear resistance.

Presented in 2020, the Yokohama BluEarth"Winter V906 came to replace the BluEarth"Winter V905 model, which, incidentally, was only released three years ago. The designers of the Japanese tire maker improved the new model in two key areas: winter-grip performance and wet traction.

The BluEarth Winter V906 tread pattern is based on Harmony Tread Design concept that positions grooves, blocks, and sipes in a harmonious layout that delivers a more powerful performance. Smooth V-shaped grooves efficiently displace snow and water, while the Uniform Pressure Blocks evenly distributed over the entire pattern increase the tire’s rigidity to deliver outstanding grip performance on all winter road surfaces. Optimally placed widespread 3D sipes enhance the tire’s edge effect to further improve the Yokohama BluEarth Winter V906 performance on snow and ice.

The tire’s tread compound is a newly developed super-rich silica compound that uses a large amount of silica to dramatically enhance the BluEarth"Winter V906 wet-grip performance. Yokohama Rubber’s proprietary A.R.T. Mixing Technology, an advanced reaction mixing technology, greatly improves the dispersibility of materials, which heightens the efficiency of the silica.

Meanwhile, the tire’s unique construction includes a low-heat generating undertread rubber that maintains a low rolling resistance, and, as a consequence, reduces the fuel consumption by the vehicle..
