BluEarth - A AE50 was developed in pursuit of driving pleasure. It combines exceptional manoeuvrability & comfort with fuel efficient performance. It is superb in the wet, reducing braking distance significantly whilst boasting quietness & grip for a high level of total performance. The orange oil technology in Yokohama's high tech Nano Blend rubber compound adds grip at a micro level. As a result, Yokohama's fuel efficient eco tyres have the grip Yokohama is famous for.
The load rating (represented by the numerical value) is related to the maximum weight that tyre can carry. So in this case 105 would refer to a load capacity of 925kg, with most passenger vehicle load indexes range from 62 to 126.
In all instances the tyres load index must meet or exceed the value displayed on the vehicles placard.
The speed category symbol, for example 'S', indicates the maximum speed at which the tyre can carry a load corresponding to its load index. So in this case, 'S' would refer to a maximum speed of 180km/hour.
See the chart below for a full list of speed symbols and their applicable values.
