The football tyre

Chelsea branded tyres from Yokohama Rubber Company

Published:  15 February, 2016

The Chelsea FC Edition of the BluEarth-A AE50 tyre is a specially-branded version of Yokohama's successful environmental product aimed at fans of the English football Club. It follows the announcement prior to the start of this football season, of the partnership between Yokohama Rubber Company and Chelsea FC, which saw the Japanese manufacturer become the 'Official shirt partner' of the premiership team.

The Chelsea FC Edition of the BluEarth-A AE50 features the club's name and crest on the sidewall, making it an ideal choice for fans of the club or of football followers in general.

The BluEarth range has been developed by Yokohama to highlight its commitment to the environment and minimise the impact of tyre use and production. Therefore, it features a range of innovations, including the adoption of Orange Oil Technology within the compound, reducing the proportion of mineral oil content by replacing it with citrus oil from the skin of oranges. It also features Yokohama's lightweight design, as well as golf-ball sidewall dimples, to reduce aerodynamic drag and improve fuel efficiency.
