The ADVAN dB decibel (V551) is for the owners of luxury vehicles who are used to the finer things in life. Like opera. Or it’s for those who are sick to death of noisy tyres.
Scroll down for ADVAN dB Decibel tyre sizes and reviews.
While it looks conservative, it’s full of fuel saving and performance innovations. For example, do some really hard cornering (if one would do such a thing) and the tyres strengthened construction remains rigid and upright. It doesn’t distort and start wearing down the sidewall like most comfort tyres would.
The grip and tread rigidity doesn’t come from big tread blocks. The ADVAN dB has nice, small petite ones. It comes from a fancy rubber compound that’s unpronounceable even with elocution lessons. At a micro level the rubber doesn’t distort like a normal tyre and it doesn’t produce as much heat (or energy loss according to the scientists). This results in a tyre that's 9.4%* lighter and has a lower rolling resistance. Both of which improve fuel economy.

245/45R18 tyres. The first turn of the wheels told me I was riding on something special. Bumps in the road that where once thumps, are now (little) bumps. I've spent a lot of time and money, sound proofing the interior of my Ute. Being my daily drive (recreational, not work) I demand quiet, not noise. The Yokohama dB's have drawn all my previous efforts together and delivered what is now a very quiet and comfortable vehicle....read more »

I'm very fussy with tyres and I have been pleasantly surprised with the quietness AND good stiff sidewall of the Yokohama's. The confidence and feedback the tyres give, is very progressive and predictable. The outright grip in the dry with hard straight line acceleration and high cornering speeds is fantastic....read more »

I purchased this type for my 2005 Hyundai Elantra when my factory tyres only lasted 35,000km. These tyres have been excellent. The grip is great in wet and dry conditions and have lasted over 60,000km with many trips being on long winding roads of Tasmania and Victoria, being pushed around corners. Although they do come at a bit more of a price premium, they have been worth every cent and will be changing these shortly for the same again! highly recommended....read more »

These tyres are so much quieter. What a luxury. I've had them for a month. The grip is excellent. I haven't got them to squeal on my favorite corners yet. Fuel consumption has dropped from 8.3 to 8.0 liters per 100 kilometers. The ADVAN decibels make driving more pleasant....read more »
