The Five Position Variation of the tread pattern ensures silence

The Five Position Variation of the tread pattern ensures silence
A unique tread pattern design technology that contributes to noise reduction.
Five types of block placements with different lengths are aligned to reduce noise.
The BluEarth-GT AE51 provides the same level of silence as the traditional Yokohama BluEarth-A tire, while increasing overall rigidity.

Calibrated rigidity with blade image sipes

Calibrated rigidity with blade image sipes
A "twist" pattern, reminiscent of the blades of famous Japanese swords, has been molded to ensure greater rib rigidity.
The beveled sipes increase the uniformity of ground contact pressure with the tread face, and help to increase the total volume of the edges.

Increase in total edge volume, improvement in grip performance.

Increase in total edge volume, improvement in grip performance.
The electric-type grooves increase the total volume of the edges while maintaining the rigidity of the tread block.
This further enhances grip performance by expanding the edge part that displaces the water located beneath the tread block.

Highlighting Internal Driving Comfort, External Driving Stability

Highlighting Internal Driving Comfort, External Driving Stability
The rigidity of the inner shoulder has been calibrated with fine grooves in a peripheral direction, for a smoother ride and more comfort.
A blind groove has been adopted for the rib of the outer shoulder, increasing rigidity.

The highly rigid triple ribs ensure straight-line stability at high speed.

The highly rigid triple ribs ensure straight-line stability at high speed.
The pattern features three wide ribs arranged in the center.
The continuous ribs around the tire increase peripheral stability, which implies better straight-line stability at high speed.
