A Silent Tyre.
“dB” (decibel) is the well-known unit for measuring noise levels. Adopted for YOKOHAMA’s premium line, “AVS”, this name indicates the ultimate product in a line of comfort tires. AVS dB promises a quiet cabin for drivers and passengers over the entire service life of the tire.
“Gain quietness without compromising performance” is also the slogan for drivers from YOKOHAMA’s development team. Drivers make no compromises in demanding first-class, dynamic
performance to obtain superior driving comfort when switching to AVS dB from original equipment tyres. The “Decibel Pattern” found on the AVS dB tread pattern features the following functions to realize its advanced concept. For silence, we have given our all.
1) 5-Pitch Variation
Finely tuned, based on YOKOHAMA’s latest simulation
technologies. Minimizes hammering noise, the key factor in noise generated by tyre treads.
2) Small Blocks
Well calibrated to avoid uneven wear and helps to minimize noises generated by tyre wear.
3) 4 Straight Wide Grooves
Drain water effectively in order to avoid aquaplaning at high speeds and realize extreme wet performance in conjunction with a silica tread compound featuring ZERUMA™, YOKOHAMA’s original processing agent to disperse silica.
