New from Yokohama is the super sticky road-legal trackday tyre, the Advan AO52 available now at around £160 each. It replaces the AO48.

Available in sixteen sizes from 16in to 18in (a 15in may well be coming) and improves upon the ADVAN A048’s (the tyre it replaces) already superior cornering and stable handling to deliver unprecedented grip performance in wet and dry conditions Yokohama says.

The tread design is developed from the tarmac rally tyre ADVAN A051T and can trace its lineage back to the legendary AO08. More from ENDS.
