Features:

The A008 tyre is Yokohama's performance tyre developed for the drivers of classic Austin 7, Mini 850 and Mini Cooper cars. The A008 tyre uses Yokohama's latest technology to provide enhanced performance in dry conditions. The tyre features a high performance tread compound molded into an asymmetric design that includes a continuous shoulder rib to enhance responsiveness and dry road traction. Circumferential grooves and independent tread blocks on the inner portion of the tyre focus on hydroplaning resistance and wet traction. Internally, A008 tyres feature a polyester cord body and twin steel belts reinforced by a layer of nylon to help deliver exceptional dry traction and predictable handling.

These A008s enhance the already quick steering. I think it's because of the solid outside shoulders, which minimise distortion under cornering. Not great in the wet, (you already knew that), but a brilliant dry-weather tyre.
