Great Fuel Efficiency Through Innovation

The key to fuel efficiency begins with the compound—and Yokohama’s innovative compounding process ultimately reduces and provides better fuel efficiency.

creating a world-class compound

Our advanced rubber compound is created through a very efficient, environmentally friendly, single-stage mixing process that yields a molecular structure with better carbon distribution with lower dioxide occurrence. The end result is reduced heat build-up in the tread area and significantly lower rolling resistance which allows for deeper tread depths for increased mileage and maximum performance.

Testing your way to the top

As the following chart clearly illustrates, our advanced rubber compound has a significant impact on the low rolling resistance of our tires.

Yokohama’s advanced compounding technology reduces the effect of heat on the tread and casing for a reduction in rolling resistance. Data represents results from an independent testing laboratory.
