Yokohama Earth-1 E400 Car Tyre Review

Yokohama Earth-1 E400 Tyre

Yokohama Earth-1 E400 Overview

Passenger car and SUV tyres from the stable of Yokohama Rubber Company aka Yokohama are termed as reliable, long term performers. Since its debut in the Indian tyre market in 2007 – where it started as an importer of tyres – to the inauguration of its first manufacturing unit in 2014 in Haryana, the company has only witnessed an upsurge. In the beginning, the brand rose to fame with its very capable ‘Geolandar’ series SUV tyres. Later, after thorough research of Indian road conditions, market and consumer sentiments, Yokohama launched its first made for India tyre – the Yokohama Earth-1 E400.

This mass segment passenger car tyre attracted a lot of attention in the masses and in a short span of time gained a sizable share in the aftermarket sphere. The continuously increasing demand for the Earth-1 series tyre in the market encouraged Yokohama India to introduce more size options. Intended for small to mid-size passenger cars, the Earth-1 E400 is a durable and fuel-efficient tyre that infuses the company’s latest know-how and precision engineering. Made available in 25+ different size variations, the Yokohama Earth-1 E400 fits almost all the mass segment passenger cars in the country.

 

Yokohama Earth-1 E400 Car Tyre Compound

The made in India and made for India tyre features a very unique rubber compound in the form of Nano Blend compound. The exclusively developed Yokohama Earth-1 compound uses anti-ageing additives and high-grade carbon for longer tread life of the tyre. Use of anti-wear, chip resistance polymers ensure improved wear resistance on uneven road surfaces. Moreover, Earth-1 E400’s high chipping resistance nature increases tread and sidewall life overtime. The blend polymer evenly balances traction, durability and arrest tyre wear for long. The stiffness of the compound (for better wear rate) is boosted by the reduced oil blending ratio of carbon and polymer.

 

Yokohama Earth-1 E400 Car Tyre Construction Type

The Earth-1 series tyre E400 gets unique radial construction with a tubeless layout for higher life and better resistance against punctures.  The dual-ply construction enhances vehicle stability and steering precision, while the high bead filler technology improves rigidity against conventional tyres. For superior safety inside the tyre, the inner liner (specially developed for E400) detains air pressure inside and ensures no loss of air leading to drivability issues. Likewise, the broader side rubber on the outside ensures better shock absorption on the sidewalls. The reinforced construction of Earth-1 receives edge cover and full cover in the inside of the tyre wall for reinforced durability on uneven, rough roads.

 

Yokohama Earth-1 E400 Car Tyre Performance

The tyre has been a true performer in its class and caters all the needs of urban commuting. Its excellent roadability during wet and dry weather conditions is ensured by the precision-designed tread patterns of Yokohama E400. Excellent handling and traction performance are guaranteed by the centre rib, while the visually appealing asymmetric tread design excels in many cordons. Its innovative groove-in-groove layout with smaller grooves placed inside the main groove limits uneven wear. Moreover, the vertical and horizontal grooves aid in diminishing tyre noise and ensure uniform wear throughout life.

The arrow groove ascertains greater water dispersal, moreover, the longitudinal blocks enhance stiffness and reduce deformation during emergency braking in wet setups. The risk of aquaplaning is prevented by the four wide upright grooves that also retain safe wet grip and superior performance under wet. With silent sipes pattern inside the narrow grooves, noise and echoing are further cancelled providing a comfortable and quieter ride to the occupants.
