AUTO ZEITUNG tests trouble-free driving even in wet conditions
With over 65 dimensions ranging from 165/70R14 to 235/40R19, the YOKOHAMA BluEarth-A AE-50 covers a wide range of vehicles. The speed index ranges from H (210 km/h) to W (270 km/h). The strengths of the tire are also diverse, as shown by the latest test in issue 6/2019 of the renowned AUTO ZEITUNG, which is now available on the market. A total of ten tires from different brands, including many premium manufacturers, had to face a demanding comparison. In each case, the dimension 235/45 R18 was tested on a Skoda Superb Combi 2.0 TDI. "It remained free from weak points until the end of the test series," was the conclusion of the editors, who classified the tire as "highly recommended".
BluEarth products are produced using environmentally friendly production methods. For example, solar energy is used in the production process. The YOKOHAMA BluEarth-A AE-50 is a pleasant companion not only in ecological terms, as shown in the test: In the comfort ranking, it was not outperformed by any competitor. Finally, it was also designed with a view on a smooth concentricity. But even more important is the chapter Driving safety: "It provides good braking performance in the rain. Trouble-free driving on wet surface and therefore brisk", commented the renowned magazine in the rating table. It remains to be added that YOKOHAMA has also given the BluEarth-A AE-50 a good mileage. The environment and the wallet are equally happy about that.
