S.DRIVE

Ultra High Performance Summer

Overall Rating (8.6)


If you drive a sports car, coupe, or performance sedan like the Fiat 500 or Mini Cooper the Yokohama S. Drive tires are what you need. These ultra high performance summer tires provide excellent grip on both wet and dry roads, and feature an appearance that is worthy of your vehicle.

Though they are not designed to be driven in freezing or near freezing temperatures, Yokohama S. Drive tires will turn your simple ride into a comfortable and confident driving experience. 

Features and Benefits
  • The S. Drive features Yokohama's micro-flexible tread compound that is developed using nanotechnology to produce a silica based compound that maximizes contact between the tire and the road, enhancing grip in both wet and dry conditions.
  • The advanced compound is molded into a directional tread design that features independent shoulder block, notched intermediate ribs, and a continuous center rib to maintain constant contact with the road and to improve cornering stability.
  • Wide circumferential grooves with angled groove walls optimize cornering traction and help to evacuate water from beneath the tire to prevent hydroplaning.
  • The internal structure of the Yokohama S. Drive tire includes twin steel belts reinforced by jointless nylon cap plies and belt edge strips to enhance ride uniformity and high-speed durability.

Comments love these tires for this car. The BMW 550i has a superior steering system which these tires respond amazingly to. The traction causes no peel out when you really lay on the gas from a stopped position, and a smooth ride even over the potholed and frost heaved roads of maine. Definitley will be a future purchase!

Comments Good tire for the price. Steering responsiveness is my only complaint. Initial turn-in is a bit sluggish, too much roll. Steady state cornering is good.
