Yokohama Advan Earns Mercedes OE Fitment
Yokohama Rubber Co., Ltd. will supply its Advan Sport V107 tire to Mercedes-AMG as original equipment on the new GLA 35 4MATIC, GLA 45 4MATIC+ and GLA 45 S 4MATIC+ models.
The cars are being equipped with either size 235/50ZR19 99Y tires or 255/35ZR21 98Y tires.
The Advan Sport V107 targets high-power, premium cars.
"The new tires were jointly developed with Mercedes-AMG and bear the automaker’s MO1 mark of approval on the tire sidewall," according to Yokohama officials.
Yokohama's Grand Desogn 2020 plan calls for an increased presence on OE premium cars, "making Yokohama Rubber the tiremaker chosen by automakers around the world in recognition of its technologies and quality."
