A heavy duty, good handling commercial tyre for couriers, tradesmen and travellers who carry heavy loads and do lots of kilometers. They want a puncture resistant tyre which handles well especially in the wet.
The European Van tyre design has a wide, flat contact patch for better handling. The tyre casing promotes uniform pressure across the tyre for even wear and long mileage.
The rib and block tread design maximizes drainage for wet grip and reduced aquaplaning.
And finally, the handy sidewall kerbing rib protects the tyres from gutter rash and sidewall damage.
At some stores additional tyre fitting charges may apply.
For the best tyre prices call a Yokohama store.

As part of my role as editor of VW Magazine Australia, I clock up quite a few kilometres travelling all over the country to attend the many VW shows and events. My Volkswagen Transporter Crew Cab is the ideal vehicle for carrying all my trade gear and as a tow vehicle for my race trailer and car, and for towing the many restored and classic cars that the VWMA workshops have as projects.I needed a tyre that would handle all these duties, especially the long haul travelling, while also returning a degree of comfort and durability. Since my ute is quite heavy and the demands on the tyres would be high, the only choice in my mind was the Yokohama Delivery Star RY818. This is now my second set, each set lasting approximately 40,000 ks, which is excellent considering the road conditions and towing duties. And for such a large ute, the Yokohama tyres offer improved handling and performance, giving me confidence in testing conditions, especially in the wet when a front wheel drive ute can sometimes become 'twitchy'.For me this tyre is the best rubber for buck on light commercial vehicles....read more »
