Two new tires, nothing less, for the company Yokohama this winter. The iceGUARD iG53 is totally dedicated to passenger cars and minivans. But because SUVs and other crossovers of this world are legion, Yokohama also unveiled the iceGUARD G075.
Of course, on the Yokohama side, we certify that these tires are ideal, both on the snow and on the ice. In fact, it is even on ice that the new tires have recorded their best performance, according to the manufacturer. “In addition to offering exceptional ice / snow traction and overall performance, the iceGUARD iG53 and iceGUARD G075 models offer additional benefits. Its the case for improved fuel economy, longer tread life, and improved performance. silent driving, “said Bob Abram, Senior Product Manager at Yokohama.
Among the main technical innovations of these tires, there is the presence of a new component more absorbent than the previous on the IG53. By eliminating the water that forms on the surface when the tire is flowing, it reduces the risk of micro hydroplaning. They also add wider central ribs, facilitating outward flow.
The iceGUARD iG53 is available in 32 sizes with fittings from 14 to 18 inches in diameter, while the iceGUARD G075 is available in 37 rim sizes from 16 to 20 inches in diameter.
