Having the right rubber hoops wrapped around your car’s wheels is more important than you think.
Eco-consciousness means more than fuel economy improvements, and Yokohama has made their tires ecologically friendly by using citrus-based orange oil—a renewable resource which enables petroleum to be replaced with natural rubber. The compound has been used in the Yokohama-only IMSA GT3 Cup Challenge race series, as well as on the ENV R-2 line of street tires.
So you’ve installed your new set of tires—what next? You’ll want to protect your investment with a proper four-wheel alignment, and read your owners manual to check for rotation intervals. Your tire pressure (which can also be found in the owners manual, in the door jam or inside the fuel filler cap) should be checked regularly, and you should keep an eye open for uneven wear, which can reflect an alignment or shock issue.
