The AVID Ascend LX is Yokohama's Standard Touring All-Season tire developed for drivers of sedans, coupes, crossovers and minivans who want a quiet ride and confident wet performance combined with dependable winter traction and long tread life. The AVID Ascend LX is designed to deliver grip in dry, wet and wintry conditions, even in light snow.

Yokohama BluEarth branding is used to identify an ecologically friendly series of tires that are designed to deliver environmentally, human and socially friendly solutions for drivers and their vehicles. AVID Ascend LX tires branded with the BluEarth symbol are identified on their Sizes and Specs pages.

The symmetric pattern of the AVID Ascend LX features an offset design and a five-block pitch sequence to help reduce pattern and road noise for a comfortable, quiet ride. The tread is molded from Yokohama's L-2 all-season compound that features a unique polymer blend designed to enhance wear resistance, and the wider, flatter tread contour helps to evenly distribute pressure within the footprint to combat uneven wear and improve tire longevity. The wide, circumferential and lateral grooves evacuate water from the contact patch to resist hydroplaning, and wavy 3D sipes in the shoulders plus notches in the intermediate ribs create biting edges for traction in light snow and on ice.

Internally, a polyester casing aids ride comfort and supports two wide, steel belts. A nylon reinforcement provides high-speed capability and enhances handling and durability.

Treadwear Performance

N/A
N/A

Treadwear is vital to many things, not just how often the tires need replacement. Hydroplaning and wet weather are both critical factors that wear down your tire quickly. The warranty covers any defects in what you bought but only for a limited period or when there's minimal tread left on them.

Wet Perfomance

N/A
N/A

The wet performance score is a new thing that tire manufacturers are trying to achieve. The hydroplaning resistance, wet traction, and steering response all influence this new grading system.

Dry Perfomance

N/A
N/A

Tires with good dry performance should be able to perform smoothly and safely, even when cornering aggressively.

Comfort Perfomance

N/A
N/A

The comfort performance score is designed to measure the balance between ride quality and noise level.

Winter Performance

N/A
N/A

Winter Performance score helps us understand if the tire is the appropriate option for winter conditions that your vehicle will face. Dedicated winter tires provide a firm grip when driving through snow and on ice. Performance winter tires boast a higher speed rating and better handling but deliver modestly lower ice and snow traction.

Size
i

Tire size may be indicated in two formats:
– metric (P255/45R18 103H)
– high flotation (30x9.5 R15 104 F C)
In the metric system, P - stands for the passenger vehicles (LT - for Light Trucks, ST - Special Trailer) with a width of 255 millimeters, aspect ratio (sidewall height) equal to 45% of the tire height. R means it is radially constructed with a diameter of 18 inches. 103 denotes the tire's load index and H determines the speed rating.
In the high flotation system, the first number (30) is the overall diameter of the tire, the second number (9.5) is the width in inches.

Utqg
i

Uniform Tire Quality Grade Standards (UTQG) were designed to offer consumers with useful information about the treadwear, traction, and temperature capabilities of their tires in order to make better decisions when purchasing new tires.

800 A A
Max. load
i

The maximum weight that a tire can carry is the greatest amount of weight it's designed to bear. Because load carrying capability is dependent on a tire's size and construction, as well as how much air pressure is actually utilized, maximum loads are measured with the tire inflated to an industry standard inflation pressure.

84 (1100 lbs)
Max. speed
i

The maximum speed that a tire with this type of tread can safely travel for an extended amount of time is indicated by the tire speed rating, which is usually shown by a letter or two.

H (130 mph)
Max inflation pressure
i

The highest "cold" inflation pressure that a tire is meant to contain is its maximum inflation pressure.

51 | 18
Tire weight
i

The tire weight is determined by the type and size of the tire. As the tread depth of the tire wears down over time, so does its weight.

18
Rim width range
i

Tires may be used on rims of varying widths while still fulfilling their intended function.

5-6.5""
Meas. rim width
i

The measuring rim width is the common industry minimum rim width at which a tire must be mounted to validate that it meets design specifications.

11/32""
Overall diam.
i

The overall diameter of a tire is the outer diameter of the tire, measured in the center of the tread. This measurement is made without any load placed on the tire and after it has been properly mounted on its industry-assigned measuring rim and inflated to its test pressure after 24 hours.

23.74
Revs.per mile

The revolutions per mile figure indicates the number of times a tire rotates during one mile's travel.
