Yokohama’s “ADVAN Sport ”OE on Mercedes AMG’s new GLS 63-series

Yokohama has announced that Mercedes-AMG has selected its “ADVAN Sport V107” tyres as original equipment for the new GLS 63 4MATIC+ cars. Yokohama began supplying the tyres in October 2019 in two sizes—285/45ZR22 114Y on front tyres and 325/40ZR22 114Y size on the back tyres.

The “ADVAN Sport V107” is a high-performance tyre developed by Yokohama primarily for use on high-power premium cars. The “ADVAN Sport V107″ improves upon the already excellent driving performance necessary for premium cars delivered by its predecessor “ADVAN Sport V105” tyres while maintaining the superior comfort and safety of the V105. The tyres were jointly developed with Mercedes-AMG and bear the automaker’s “MO1” mark of approval on the tyre sidewall.

Under its medium-term management plan, Grand Design 2020 (GD2020), Yokohama Rubber has positioned the expansion of its presence in the premium tyre markets as the core goal for its consumer tyre business. One of the specific strategies for achieving that goal is the “premium-car tyre strategy”, which aims to increase use of YOKOHAMA tyres as OE on premium cars in Japan and abroad by making Yokohama Rubber the tyre maker chosen by car manufacturers around the world in recognition of its technologies and quality.
