YOKOHAMA's new GREEN tire is ORANGE!!!
Yokohama has just introduced the World's first mass-produced tire using Orange Oil technology.
Infusing the natural and synthetic rubbers with orange oil, which is extracted from orange peels, Yokohama says the resultant tire attains longer tread life, better road handling and better fuel consumption. Apparently Orange Oil extends the life and wear of the rubber allowing Yokohama to offer unlimited mileage warranties for four years (for V-rated tires), five years (for H-rated tires), or six years (for T-rated tires).
Better fuel consumption is achieved through the reduction of friction (which reduces rolling resistance).
This technology achieves these gains while reducing its carbon footprint and has achieved the prestigious BluEarth designation as an ecologically friendly tire.
Looking for a replacement set of tires for your vehicle? Consider the Cost of Ownership, not only the Acquisition Cost (Purchase Price), and these new tires might not only help you save some money, but also help in a small way to reduce the environmental impact on our Planet.
