Be it fast road driving or a quiet daily drive to work, the Yokohama Advan Sport V105 provides the best of both worlds.

19 Jul 2019


The 'Advan' name from Yokohama is synonymous to performance. Its inscription can be found on high performance tyres like the AD08R, and also, Yokohama's range of performance wheels.

If you're looking for high-performance tyres for daily use, the Yokohama Advan Sport V105s are a good choice
So when a new tyre comes along from Yokohama and it adorns the Advan inscription, it is sure to be something that is top-of-the-line and more often than not a Ultra High Performance (UHP) tyre.

Now, there is a new asymmetric UHP tyre from Yokohama, the Advan Sport V105. It aims to offer the best of both worlds - for confidence in fast road and high-performance driving, as well as for daily on-road usage.

Increased steering response

For a performance tyre, responsiveness is key. The V105 doesn't fall short in this regard, as it offers a heightened level of steering stability and response. The reason why some tyres lack response and stability is due to flex. Softer sidewalls, although comfortable, can result in tyres flexing more than usual.    

To prevent tyre flex, the V105 employs a lighter, but stronger Matrix Rayon body ply structure that helps to reduce tyre flex and deformation. The stronger structure doesn't just prevent tyre flex laterally, but also longitudinally - preventing flex under hard acceleration or braking, too.

The Advan Sport V105 is less susceptible to flex, thanks to its Matrix Rayon body ply structure
These improvements also aid in steering stability, as steering inputs are fed directly onto the road, and not lost by movements through the tyres.

High speed stability and grip

Being a UHP tyre, the Advan Sport V105 offers a higher level of stability at very high speeds, thanks the implementation of a new 'Mound Profile' cross-sectional shape in its construction.

This allows for its raised ribs to maintain a uniform contact point, as the thread is able to mould itself onto the road surface, increasing grip and stability.

A part of its thread pattern also focuses on dry performance. Its outer thread blocks are wider, allowing for more road contact, increasing grip. These innovations that focus on the tyre's contact patch with the road ensures improved levels of stability and grip.

No compromise in the wet and on the road

The V105's inner threads focus on wet weather performance, with deeper groove areas effective in water dispersion
Having a tyre with increased grip and handling properties certainly are attributes expected from a performance tyre.

But using the Advan Sport V105s doesn't mean there is a compromise in normal driving situations, either.

In the wet, the new Advanced Sport Compound 5S offers enhanced road surface adhesion in wet conditions, as it offers a new dispersing agent to better disperse microsilica in the compound.

While the outer thread focuses on improving dry performance, the inner thread features an increased groove area that is effective in water dispersion, further maximising wet weather performance.

These improvements are great, but a tyre used for the road should be a comfortable and quiet one, too. Hence, Silent sipes are part of the V105's multi-pitch thread design, separating different thread blocks into different sizes, supressing tyre noise.

The choice for high on-road performance

The Advan Sport V105s come in a large range of sizes, starting from 16 inches right up to 23 inches
The Yokohama Advan Sport V105 is thus a good choice of tyres for those who seek for more driving enjoyment on the road.

Despite having high levels of performance yielding properties, it still offers a quiet ride and performs well in wet weather conditions.

Plus, the Advan Sport V105 is available in a wide range of sizes, ranging from as small as 16 inches right up to 23 inches.
