Yokohama Tire is introducing its latest offering in the grand touring segment, the all-new AVID Ascend GT, a grand touring tire that goes on sale July 1 in 50 H- and V-rated sizes. According to the company, the highly advanced all-season tire will deliver improved handling, long mileage and superior comfort.

“We’ve enjoyed a tremendous amount of success in the H & V category with products like the AVID Ascend and AVID ENVigor,” said Andrew Briggs, Yokohama’s vice president of marketing.  “As we strive to meet the increasing demands of the end-user, we’re thrilled to be able to introduce the Ascend GT, which represents a significant step forward in terms of all-season handling, without sacrificing mileage, or comfort.”


The Ascend GT is designed for luxury sports sedans and coupes, as well as mainstream passenger cars in sizes ranging from 15-in. to 20-in. and is offered with a 65,000-mile tread life warranty on all sizes.

Highlights of the new Ascend GT include:

  • Shorter wet braking is achieved by an all-new asymmetric tread design with a unique circumferential groove arrangement engineered to provide impressive stopping power and enhanced handling on wet roads.
  • Outstanding snow braking occurs thanks to hundreds of 3D sipes and a notched block design, resulting in standout performance for both snow braking and handling.
  • Longer treadlife comes from Yokohama’s newly engineered TriBLEND compound and an ultra-square contact patch which produces long, even wear and high-speed stability.
  • A much quieter ride is assured by a multi-pitch tread block variation and adaptive outside shoulder blocks which combat uneven wear for a quieter ride throughout the life of the tire.
