Yokohama BluEarth GT Tyres: Fleet Introduction

Published On Nov 19, 2020 By Nabeel for Maruti XL6

Yokohama’s latest tyre line in India are the new shoes for our most run car in the fleet, the Maruti XL6 shoot wagon. 

Replacing the stock Bridgestones on our most important car of the fleet, the XL6 now has a new set of tyres - the Yokohama BluEarth GT. I say most important because all the fancy photos and videos shots that you see on our website are shot from the boot of this particular car. It ferries the camera crew and equipment hundreds of kilometres daily to keep the website going. And hence, it being efficient, comfortable and reliable is of utmost importance. Seems fair that the tyres that promise those three aspects are now being tested in that car. 

Yokohama BluEarth GT tyres with the new AE51 pattern are made in India and promise enhanced fuel efficiency, better durability and comfort. They get an asymmetric pattern in which the inside pattern gets fine groves to aid ride comfort and the outside pattern gets bolder ones for better stability. For the middle part, the tyres get three central ribs for high speed stability, “lightning grooves” for better grip and blade-cut sipes for better rigidity of the ribs. For better durability of the sidewalls, the BluEarth GTs get a two layer construction with a low heat generating second layer for better efficiency, and a full cover belted construction for better impact absorption. 

Well, that's enough theory for the day. The Yokohama BluEarth GT is available in 26 sizes ranging from 14 to 17 inch. Below are some examples of sizes and cars for which the tyres are available. Along with the tyres, a nice touch was a green valve cap, which adds a bit of occasion to the new tyre.
