Yokohama Tire Sales Philippines, Inc. has just introduced the new BluEarth Ace AE50. Specifically designed for large sedans and hybrid vehicles, the tire features excellent grip on wet surfaces and provides a quiet and comfortable drive. In addition, it also delivers fuel-saving performance as part of Yokohama’s BluEarth Series.

BluEarth Ace replaces C.drive2 which was the first fuel-saving eco-tire of Yokohama in the Philippines. This tire complements the BluEarth, AE01 which is suited for smaller passenger cars.

The global BluEarth concept is the symbol of Yokohama’s idea to create a beautiful “Blue Earth.” This symbol can also be found sidewall of BluEarth AE01, Geolandar SUV (for crossover SUVs) and ADVAN (performance/racing cars).
