Order Reprints

Yokohama Advan Sport V105 MO tires, part of Yokohama Rubber Co. Ltd.'s flagship line, have been selected as original equipment for the new Mercedes-Benz CLS Shooting Brake, produced by Daimler AG of Germany.

Two tire sizes are available for what Daimler calls "an entirely new concept" car: 255/40R18 99Y for the front, and 285/35R18 97Y for the rear.

The Advan Sport V105 MO was developed jointly by Yokohama Rubber and Daimler, and the "MO" mark on the side of each tire signifies approval by Daimler. The new tires "deliver all of the stability in the super high-speed range of their predecessor, the Advan Sport V103, with further improved performance on wet and dry surfaces and braking," according to Yokohama.

In addition, quiet ride and a high level of comfort are finely balanced.

The Advan Sport V105 MO is also fitted as OE on Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class and SLK-Class vehicles released in 2011, as well as A-Class, B-Class, and SL-Class vehicles launched in 2012.

(The predecessor Advan Sport V103 is fitted as OE on the Audi S8, A7 and Q7; the Porsche 911 Carrera 4 and Cayenne; and the Bentley Continental.)

Yokohama tires also have been factory-equipped on the Mercedes-Benz G-Class, G 63 AMG, G 65 AMG, CL 63 AMG, ML 63 AMG, E-Class Coupe, C-Class, C 63 AMG, CLS-Class, SL-Class and SLK-Class.
