A.drive R1 AR01 Tyre

Affordable Handling Upgrade

A.drive R1 AR01

The A.driveR1 is Yokohama's entry level low profile sports performance tyre. It is surprisingly good for the money.

Upgrade your car's performance, especially if you upgrade its wheels. The "R1" is an aggressive, stylish low profile tyre which gives good value performance. If your car is powerful and gets unintended wheel spin, maybe this tyre will solve the problem. It suits hot hatches, turbo cars and some larger sports sedans.

Yokohama A.driveR1 tyres are so affordable they can even be used as drift tyres. Yokohama's resident drifter Jake "DriftSquid" Jones used A.driveR1 car tyres on the rear of his black Nissan Sonevia to win the 2011 Drift Attack event at Calder Park Raceway in Melbourne. He uses ADVAN Neova AD08s on the front. Check out the drift video below.

      These tyres are really good. Not quite as grippy as my old set of Michelin Super Pilot 3's but still are a good tyre. The only downfall is when cornering hard the back end "skates" a little bit but apart from that I would defenitly have another set!!!...read more »
