Yokohama designed the ADVAN A83A as the High Performance All-Season tires for drivers who want a mix of a sporty look, predictable handling and H-speed or V-speed rated durability with year round traction including light snow. High Performance All-Season tires, patented with the M+ S symbol, are usually used as Original Equipment (O.E.) on performance coupes, sporty cars, and high performance sedans. Usually, Original Equipment (O.E.) High Performance All-Season tires are bought to replace damaged or worn-out original tires that a vehicle comes with. Other vehicle applications can use these tires in axle pairs or complete sets of four, if they are available in the correct size, speed rating and load range to match the current specification and performance category of the current O.E. tire.
