The ADVAN Sport V105 is Yokohama’s flagship high performance tyre. It provides limousine quietness and race tyre performance. It was developed on the demanding Nurburgring race circuit in conjunction with one of the World's leading prestige car manufacturers. It benefits from advances in eco tyre technology and race tyre technology. The ADVAN Sport tyre is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. The tread design is conservative with wide straight grooves to disperse water and silent sipes to reduce tyre noise. Under the surface hides a race tyre-like Matrix Body Ply structure providing rigidity resulting in quick steering response for drivers.
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.
