Yokohama AVS Sport RFT
The Yokohama AVS Sport RFT (Run-Flat) is Yokohama's Max Performance Summer self-supporting run-flat tire developed to provide temporary continuing mobility in the case of complete air loss due to a puncture for the drivers of BMW 5-Series cars, Chevrolet C-5 Corvettes, as well as Lexus GS430 and SC430 models. The Yokohama AVS Sport RFT is designed to emphasize dry traction and handling along with wet traction.

Vehicle Application Tire Size
BMW 5-Series 245/40R18 93Y
Chevrolet C-5 Corvette (front) 245/45R17 95Y
Chevrolet C-5 Corvette (rear) 275/40R18 99Y
Lexus GS430 and SC430 245/40R18 93Y

The AVS Sport RFT's high-angle, lateral groove, "Y"-shaped directional tread design results in an evenly spaced distribution of ribs and grooves which increases rubber-to-road contact for enhanced dry traction while it improves water drainage for wet traction and hydroplaning resistance. The AVS Sport RFT features a continuous zigzag center rib for uninterrupted rubber-to-road contact that helps enhance steering response, high-speed stability and tread wear. The AVS Sport RFT features Yokohama's Super Performance Silica (SPS) tread compound to further resist wear while it maximizes dry and wet traction.

Internally, the AVS Sport RFT's twin steel belts are reinforced by jointless nylon construction to provide Y-speed rated capability while minimizing tire weight and maximizing ride comfort. The AVS Sport RFT also features a new casing design that delivers excellent lateral rigidity for improved cornering while it improves dampening for better ride comfort.
