Yokohama Tires and Oranges, they have more in common than you think!

Happy Earth day! Today we take some time to do our part and help raise awareness of the Earth and all that it gives us.  Yokohama is just one of the many brands that we offer at Bowen Tire and Auto Service but the advances they are making just may surprise you!

Yokohama is one of the world’s leading tire manufactures.  With a deep history in racing, Yokohama is setting a new standard for protecting the environment and it all starts with Yokohama’s manufacturing process.  The Salem, VA and worldwide, are ISO 14001, which is an international specification of environmental management system that holds organizations to stringent environmental principles and audits. For information how Yokohama is changing the way companies reach for a higher level of sustainability click here.

The in last 170 years, from Charles Goodyear received the patent for vulcanized rubber, not much has changed in the world of tires.  With manufacturing using petroleum, Yokohama has set out to reduce the use of petroleum and become more sustainable.  In 2009, Yokohama announced the Orange Oil-Infused Tire for the passenger car which is 80% non-petroleum based product.  Not only have they re-invented the tire, Yokohama has done so without compromising performance.  This new technology also saves consumers money at the pumps with a 20-percent reduction of rolling resistance.
