The BluEarth Winter V905 is Yokohama’s environmentally conscious Performance Winter / Snow tire developed for the drivers of sports cars, sports coupes, high-performance sedans and performance-tuned SUVs looking for high speed winter driving performance, along with confident traction and handling in dry and wet conditions.

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. BluEarth Winter V905 tires featuring BluEarth branding are identified as such on their “Sizes” and “Specs” pages.

Utilizing a specialized, high-silica compound infused with Orange Oil allows the BlueEarth Winter V905 to remain flexible and provide traction across a wide range of temperatures. The directional tread pattern with wide slanting grooves helps to evacuate water and slush from the contact patch for hydroplaning resistance. The Triple 3D sipes create biting edges for traction on slick surfaces while increasing tread block stiffness for confident handling in dry, wet or snowy conditions.

Internal construction of the BluEarth Winter V905 consists of a two-ply polyester casing to help balance ride comfort and durability, and the two wide, steel belts are reinforced by a nylon cap ply to aid handling responsiveness and deliver high-speed capability.

BluEarth Winter V905 tires meet the industry’s severe snow service requirements and are branded with the three-peak mountain snowflake (3PMSF) symbol.

Note: Snow platform indicators (the equivalent of “snow wear bars”) are molded into the BluEarth Winter V905’s tread grooves to inform the driver when ice and snow traction will be reduced as the tire’s tread reaches the point where the remaining tread depth becomes less effective in deep snow.

  1. These tires are incredible on snow and ice. I drove them in 16 inches of snow, with 50 mph winds and temperatures of -4f. The tires were incredibly stable and had great traction. After the blizzard passed, I spent a week driving them in the icy aftermath. Once again, the tires were incredibly stable and had great traction in the icy conditions. Even in dry conditions, the tires are very good. The ride is pleasant for winter tires. They are usually reasonably quiet in most road confpditions. However, on a freshly paved section of highway they were loud. They are much better than my prior winter performance tires, which include Michelin Pilot Alpin PA 4 and Dunlop WinterSport 3D. Buy them with confidence!

  2. I purchased these tires based on the fact that a limited amount of options existed currently for the new 2018 E63S AMG. The composition of the tire made sense and they were speed rated. The price was also remarkably good for such a tire. I went square at all 4 corners instead of trying to match the stock staggered setup. I installed them on the factory oem rims. I live in an extremely cold and snowy climate in Canada. I was extremely happy from day one in the way the tires handled in snow, icy, and dry conditions. It has maintained almost all of the character that the stock Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires provided which are currently the most capable non-race UHP tire available. I have used both Blizzak ws80 and Dunlop Winters. I thought I noticed a slight hum at hwy speeds but it did not recreate the noise today on another road. I would expect some noise from winter tires at speed anyways. These are as good as the Blizzaks and better then the Dunlops in winter conditions. I would absolutely purchase these again.
