Lifetime ComfortComfort should be a top priority when it comes to tyre development – but not at the expense of sporting features. C.drive™ promises to deliver high performance and superb comfort from first to last. YOKOHAMA’s experience, research and computer aided design have combined to create a powerful configuration of blocks and grooves for advanced tread stress relief that virtually reduces uneven tread wear, thereby dramatically reducing noise. C.drive™ – For peace and quiet anytime you drive.
Confidence in the RainTotal driving pleasure means being able to rely on the performance of your car and especially on your tyres in the most extreme conditions. C.drive™ takes the wet in its stride with its definitive wet grip and aquaplaning performance. Eye-catching quadruple straight main grooves and lateral sub-grooves are able to flush away water at high speeds, while the newly developed micro-flexible tread compound grips the road surface at the nano level creating superior traction in all conditions. C.drive™ – Total driving confidence for you and your family.
Full Logic Tread Pattern
Since 1st November, 2012 all tyres made after 1st July, 2012 must show the European Tyre Label.
The European Union has developed this new provision to promote economic and ecological efficiency and ensure road safety.
Disadvantages The Tyre Label can provide an overview and give the customer more transparency, but it only covers three criteria. For an extensive evaluation of a tyre, however, far more performance characteristics are relevant. Especially in the search for suitable winter tyres the test results from different test institutions such as the ADAC are much more stringent.
We'd like to point out that it is the manufacturer that labels the tyre and provides us with this information. If you do not find the label values, either the manufacturer did not inform us of the label, or the product was manufactured before July, 2012. Before that date, tyres had not yet been required to carry a label, so in some cases it is possible to purchase a tyre without a Tyre Label.
The tyres are classified in terms of three performance characteristics:
• Fuel Efficiency (letters A to G)
• Wet Grip (letters A to G)
• External Noise
Finally, it is the driver that determines the fuel consumption. In order to reduce this over the long-term, by being careful during acceleration drivers can become more fuel-efficient and environmentally conscious.
Regularly checking tyre pressure helps to improve rolling resistance, reduces energy loss, and supports optimum adhesion in wet conditions. To reduce the risk of accidents and ensure your and the safety of other road users, always keep a reasonable distance.

Rolling resistance is the force that opposes motion. It is formed, for example, when a wheel is rolling. Rolling resistance depends not only on the geometry but also on the properties of the material.
Average Average value is between C-E. Class D is not used.
The wet grip classes are based on test driving on wet roads with a speed of approximately 80 km/h. The difference between the braking distance of the tyres is 3-5 feet per grade. E.g., the difference in braking distance between Class A and Class F are up to 18 metres.
Average The average value of the tyres is between class B-E. Class D and G is not used.
A continuous sound level above 80 decibel can cause health problems.
Three sound waves symbolize the worst results. These are the tyres that exceed the maximum limit of approval. A symbol of 2 sound waves have noise level that corresponds with the approved sound level. Tyres that are marked with 1 sound wave are over three decibel quieter than the approval.
