Yokohama BluEarth*Winter V906: a winter tyre with new technologies
Yokohama has announced the launch of its new winter tyre, the BluEarth*Winter V906 for compact cars, passenger cars and SUVs.
The new Yokohama BluEarth*Winter V906 winter tyre re-uses and improves the “Powerful Traction” concept already used by its predecessor, the BluEarth*Winter V905. The new winter tyre focuses on its performance on snow and ice and its wet grip performance.
Based on the Harmony Tread Design, Yokohama has worked on the tyre’s tread design: V-shaped grooves, solid blocks evenly distributed across the entire pattern, and 3D sipes optimally placed to enhance the tyre’s performance.
Indeed, all of this technology increases tyre grip when driving on all winter road surfaces. Thanks to advanced technologies, the efficiency of the new silica-containing tread compound increased and wet grip greatly improved. The presence of rubber under the tread reduces heat generation which maintains a low rolling resistance.

Designed for city cars, the BluEarth*Winter V906 will be available this autumn, in 30 different sizes in Europe: for tyre sizes ranging from 185/65 R15 88T to 225/40 R18 92W.
