Recently crowned ‘Best Tyre’ in the Wheels Tyre Test 2015, the Yokohama ADVAN Sport V105 takes the lead against some of the world’s most recognised tyre brands. Competing with the likes of Michelin, Continental, Dunlop, Goodyear, Toyo and other brands, the Yokohama ADVAN Sport V105 featured in the top three in 75% of the categories judged, proving its  overall high performance capabilities and is the definitive answer for those seeking ultimate performance.


When it comes to replacing tyres it’s often considered a grudge purchase and the scale seems to tip at both ends. On one hand, there are those who make their purchase based only on price, whilst on the other hand, there are many who know exactly what they’re after and are simply after the “best” choice for them. Whether it’s safety, performance, tread design, tyre lifespan or a mixture of them all, the tricky part is identifying which will offer us the best overall performance from the vast array of tyres available on the market.


With the help of motorsport professional Renato Loverto, Wheels magazine conducted a series of intricate disciplines to aid us with the final decision, proving tyre quality comprises of a combination of multiple components rather than just a brand name and price tag.


The tyres were analysed under a series of performance disciplines, rated against their cornering, grip, braking, noise, speed endurance and wet weather abilities, with the end result announcing the Yokohama ADVAN Sport V105 as the overall victor over its eight competitors. With premium performance in practically all of the categories; the Yokohama ADVAN Sport V105 proves itself to be a high-end, versatile tyre with quality safety performance in a variety of driving conditions. This win follows other tyre tests conducted around the world with a first and second place finish in French magazine “Motorsport” (Le Magazine de L’Automobile Sportive) and UK’s “EVO” magazine respectively.


With state of the art technology and innovative designs, Yokohama manages to keep a step ahead of their competitors, whose values as a leading tyre manufacturer firmly lie with testing tyres rigorously to improve technology. “We’re passionate about earning your trust and protecting you on the road, so it’s nice to see the hard work is recognized against our major competitors.”
