Product description & features
Designed for mid-range sedans, the Yokohama BluEarth-GT AE51 is part of Yokohama's fuel efficient BluEarth range and provides greater fuel efficiency with improved wet grip alongside long mileage.
The successor to the BluEarth-GT AE50, the AE51 is delivering powerful and stable performance on long journeys as well as excellent all-around performance, including improved manoeuvrability, comfort and environment-friendly features, the BluEarth-GT AE51 has been developed as a 'Grand Touring' tyre.
A specially developed asymmetric tread pattern offers improved comfort and handling while a two-layer tread compound decreases energy lost through heat dissipation.
What are summer tyres?
Summer tyres are specifically designed for warm weather conditions, particularly during the summer season. This type of tyre performs best when in seasons with warmer temperatures - above 7°C.
How does a summer tyre perform better in summer?
The technologies and tread patterns used in a summer tyre mean the tyres have high-quality features that are of benefit to driving in warm conditions. They typically use a softer rubber compound – designed for good grip and traction when driving on dry and wet roads.
Can you use summer tyres in winter?
Whilst summer tyres still offer adequate performances in wet and cooler conditions, it is recommended that you change. The tread design and technologies that are featured in summer tyres can harden in colder temperatures, resulting in reduced flexibility and decreased traction on snow and ice.
