YOKOHAMA - Rv02 BluEarth
About yokohama RV02 BluEarth
The Yokohama BluEarth RV02 is a tyre designed for fuel-efficiency. Thanks to its squarer profile and new tread pattern, it also delivers improved driving performance while ensuring ride stability and safe handling.
Engineered to meet the new needs of the SUV market, a segment experiencing strong growth and demanding ever higher performance.
The tyre uses an original polymer blend compound with micro-silica and orange oil. This “nano blend compound” provides a precise balance of superior grip, low rolling resistance, high fuel efficiency and long tyre life. Yokohama promises increased stability and reduced noise emissions for tall and heavy vehicles, and the refined tread design minimises vibration in the cabin and improves passenger comfort.
Most sizes of the new Yokohama tyre have received a “C” grade for fuel efficiency on the EU tyre label. The tyre’s impressive wet performance allowed it to secure an A grade for wet-grip.
With this more flexible rubber compound, Yokohama’s tyre promises stable driving performance and safer handling. This is thanks to the larger contact area between the tyre and the road, which significantly reduces uneven wear.
Key Features & Benefits:
(A) Twin Power Ribs
■ Provides highly stable handling ■ Diagonally cut grooves improve water-drainage performance
(B) Power Inside Shoulder
■ Provides highly stable handling ■ Reduces uneven wear
(C) Four Straight Grooves
■ Improve straight-line driving stability ■ Excellent hydroplaning resistance
(D) Grand Silent Shoulder
■ Designed with noise-suppressing grooves ■ Reduces uneven wear and wobbling
(E) 3D Sipes
■ Two types of differently shaped sipes disperse tyre noise ■ Reduces uneven tread wear
(F) Silent Edge Grooves
■ Grooves cut into the inner sides of the ribs reduce the pass by noise
Dimple and smooth shoulder design
(A) Our standard tyres :
Pressure is applied dispropor-tionately to both sides of the ribs, which leads to uneven wear.
(B) BluEarth RV-02 :
Evenly distributed contact pressure helps prevent uneven wear.

■ Excellent wet performance:
Nano-blend rubber designed specially for BluEarth RV-02 tyres (simulated image showing molecular structure)
■ Double Silica
Two types of silica are used: silica to enhance braking performance on wet surfaces, and silica to improve fuel efficiency.
■ Blend Polymer
A multiple-polymer blend is used in pursuit of improved braking on wet surfaces, lower fuel consumption and increased wear resistance.
