Do you want a tire that provides excellent performance on snow and ice without sacrificing ride comfort?
The Yokohama Iceguard IG51V is a great all-round, high-quality winter tire that’s been developed to help the drivers of light trucks, crossover and sport utility vehicles get through the tough winter weather safely. This tire’s traction capabilities on all surfaces in all conditions instills an immense feeling of confidence behind the wheel. They love driving through the snow,slush, ice and rain.
The Yokohama Iceguard IG51V will ensure you remain surefooted and safe throughout the winter. Cornering, handling, grip and steering responsiveness on all surfaces will blow you away.
To maintain traction in severe weather, the compound has been designed for optimal contact with the road by stabilizing the tread blocks, which also allows the tread to achieve longer and more even wear. The Yokohama Iceguard IGV1 features a high density tread compound that’s molded into a stylish lightning shaped directional tread design.
The tire’s shoulder grooves use a zigzag shape to cut through slush and dig through deep snow. Snow, slush and rainwater is quickly cleared out from in and around the tire for fabulous traction in all types of weather conditions. To further limit the risk of hydroplaning on wet pavement, circumferential grooves around the tire’s tread expel water away from underneath the tread’s surface and the road.
The Iceguard IG51V possesses really good grip for accelerating and braking on snow and the tire’s interlocking 3-D sipes work wonders on the ice. They bite the road in icy conditions for wonderful grip that keeps the steering sharp and braking short and sweet.
To improve durability and ride comfort, the internal structure of the Iceguard IG51V features two steel belts on top of a polyester cord reinforced casing. The ride is pleasantly comfortable without any interruption from irritating road noise. And thanks to the tire’s angled center rib, traction and handling on dry pavement is as good as it gets for a winter tire. They grip the road like an all season tire and stability at all speeds is excellent.
Overall the Iceguard IG51V is quiet,smooth, effective and affordable.These tires will get you through the worst nature can throw at you and will make you feel safe driving in any winter conditions.
The Yokohama Iceguard IG51V is available in 59 sizes ranging from 13 to 19 inches in diameter, and while there is no treadwear warranty, there is a 60 month warranty on quality and defects. It’s recommended that you use the Yokohama Iceguard IG51V in sets of four only, and as proof the Iceguard IG51V meets the industry’s severe snow service requirements, the tire is branded with the three-peak mountain snowflake symbol.
