The Yokohama A048R is a DOT Approved, street legal track and competition tyre. Developed using Yokohama's proven race tyre technology for drivers who participate in events such as tack days, circuit racing, track or race schools, autocross competitions, club racing and much more! The A048R has been the original equipment tyre on the Lotus Elise Sport as well as being the control tyre for the Australian V8 Utes Racing Series.

The A048R is designed to deliver precise control, predictable grip and sure footed braking. Available in different compounds (Soft, Medium, Medium Hard) enabling the tyres to be matched to the vehicles performance, weight, as well as track conditions and ambient temperatures etc. It uses a 'single block' tread design which increases the tyres footprint and increases tread stiffness, enhancing 'feel', steering response and cornering stability.

Advan A048R tyres are moulded with a tread depth of 4.76mm (ideal for damp tracks), but they can be shaved to 3.2mm (ideal for road racing/track use in dry conditions). Inside the tyre, the A048R has twin steel belts that are reinforced with nylon. This belt package is placed over a rounded case design, allowing predictable handling transitions between straight line and cornering.

Please note: The Yokohama A048R tyre is designed for road racing/track day use in dry conditions only, and not intended for high speed use on wet roads/tracks where standing water can induce hydroplaning.

Yokohama has a well-earned reputation on the racetrack. Yokohama's motorsports program, which through the years has expanded from sponsoring individuals to sponsoring entire racing series, is the perfect environment for testing tyre technologies that result in developing better tyres for the track or the road.

Ask a question On dry for track days, considering the A048 is unidirectional, can you rotate it left-right to equalize wear? (1 Answer)

Epic road-legal race tyre 19 May 2013
By dj_akademix
I used the soft-compound set of these on a Series 4 Lotus 7, racing in the 70's Roadsports championship for the HSCC. One set lasted almost two seasons. The dry weather grip is gobsmacking. Wet weather requires care and attention and the performance is limited by poor clearance of standing water. They warm up quickly but for heavy cars, go for the more durable compound. I am now on my second set and wouldn't consider any other tyre. I've won trophies with this tyre.
