Yokohama Advan Sport V105 Tire Review & Rating

Yokohama has recently introduced the Advan Sport V105 summer maximum performance tire as a successor to their Advan Sport V103 model. Developed for drivers of sport coupes and sedans, the V105 is built to deliver a higher level of cornering grip, stability and a more comfortable ride.

A high performance Micro-silica and Orange Oil tread compound is designed to provide increased cornering grip by making the rubber more pliable. Add to this the tire’s asymmetric tread pattern and wider shoulder blocks and you have a tire that handles and corners very well on both dry or wet pavement, which has shown to be a real plus for this model.

Yokohama Advan Sport V105 Tire Reviews

Four variable width circumferential grooves and numerous lateral notches enhance wet traction and channel away water from under the tread. This further reduces the risk of hydroplaning and adds more confidence behind the wheel.

Yokohama has addressed tire stability, handling and ride comfort on the V105 with what they call a Matrix Body Ply Structure. This new technology includes the addition of a rayon body ply that is molded at an angle in the sidewalls in order to maintain the highest lateral strength, while at the same time reduce the overall weight of the tire for better ride comfort.

You’ll find two steel belts that are reinforced with nylon to increase stability throughout the speed range, as well as provide added durability. Yokohama offers sizes ranging from 16 to 20 inches on the V105, and speed ratings of V, W and Y.

Pros

  • Excellent dry and wet traction and handling
  • Cornering grip and stability are outstanding
  • Crisp steering response
  • Ride is comfortable for a max performance tire

Cons

  • Tread life
  • Not for winter weather

Overall Thoughts

Yokohama has done a fantastic job in upgrading the V105 from its older predecessor theV103. This model delivers exceptional handling and grips the corners with authority. It will take whatever you can give it without losing grip on dry pavement. This tire simply gives you a confident feeling while driving at higher speeds on dry or wet road surfaces.

Ride comfort was an issue with the older model, but the new Advan V105 has turned that around. The ride is smooth and comfortable, and road noise is nowhere as pronounced on this tire. Our only small issue is with the treadlife. We’d like to see a bit more out of it, although to be fair, much of the lifespan will be determined by driving habits.

Overall, while perhaps not on the level of tires like the Michelin Super Sport or Continental DW among a few others, this Yokohama tire is an excellent addition to their lineup and ranks highly in this class.
