Yokohama Tire’s eco-focused dB Super E-spec passenger car tire is composed of 80% nonpetroleum-based materials. The tire, which according to the company is the world’s first orange oil-infused passenger tire, combines orange oil with silica and natural rubber to form a new compound called super nano-power rubber. Sustainable orange oil and natural rubber are mixed to cut the use of petroleum without compromising performance. The tire also helps to improve fuel efficiency via a 20% reduction in rolling resistance, as well as an advanced inner liner that minimizes tire weight and reduces air loss to help the tire stay properly inflated.
