The Yokohama AVID Ascend is the newest addition to the BluEarth line of ecologically friendly tires from Yokohama. AVID Ascend tires feature the "orange oil difference." Yokohama has become the first company to harness the power of orange oil technology in tire production. Orange oil properties allow it to bond natural and synthetic rubber to make a more advanced compound.

Advanced compounds offer benefits in treadlife, fuel efficiency and all-season capabilities. Most notable is the orange oil used as a renewable resource unlike the petroleum based products most other manufacturers use. The properties of the orange oil have allowed Yokohama to engineer a product that can make strides in better rolling resistance and not sacrifice treadlife or traction in all seasons and helps conserve our natural resources by saving on fuel costs.

The AVID Ascend's orange oil compound ensures pliability of the tire across all seasonal temperatures and features adaptive 3-D sipes that become even more aggressive as the tire wears - providing superior winter traction throughout the life of the tire.

The Yokohama AVID Ascend is offered in three speed ratings with great mileage warranties:
