Yokohama India Pvt Ltd today launched the latest edition of its BluEarth Series – ‘BluEarth GT’ in India. The manufacturer states that the tyre series has been designed with the concept of Grand Touring in mind and hence promises a blend of performance and comfort. BluEarth-GT is made in India at Yokohama India’s manufacturing unit at Bahadurgarh, Haryana.
With significant development in road infrastructure, there has been an increase in demand for better cars which in turn demands higher rim sizes and with the changing landscape, there is also an ever-growing need for performance without compromising on comfort – that is where BluEarth-GT comes in, Nitin Mantri, Chairman Yokohama India said.
BluEarth-GT offers an asymmetric tread design that incorporates features like Lightening Grooves and Blade Cut Sipes to improve on performance and features like Mound Profile, Dimple Shoulders and higher pitch numbers that improve on comfort.
To be available in 26 sizes ranging from 14 to 17 inch by end of the year, BluEarth- GT will be suitable for premium hatchbacks and onwards. The Triple Centre Ribs, silica-based compound along with advanced side profile, Yokohama says make the tyre more durable and well suited for long drives.
Globally other than the replacement tyre business, Yokohama Tyres are original equipment suppliers to many top of the line car manufacturers like Audi, Honda, Mercedes Benz, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Porsche, Suzuki and Toyota.
