With more than 100 years of history, Yokohama, Japan’s oldest tyre manufacturer has boosted its range of tyres, giving drivers of all vehicles a more comprehensive choice of premium replacement tyre than ever before.
The ADVAN Sport V105 ZPS (Zero Pressure System), recently launched in the UK and Ireland, is now available in a number of key sizes from 16” – 20”. The tyre is an ideal replacement for a number of high performance rear wheel drive executive saloons that are fitted with runflat tyres as standard. The Zero Pressure System provides drivers with extended mobility in the event of rapid deflation, allowing up to 50 miles of travel at speeds not exceeding 50mph.
In standard form, the ADVAN Sport V105, which is Yokohama’s flagship tyre, has been selected as OE on cars including the Audi TT RS, the Mercedes-Benz AMG E43 and the Porsche 911 Carrera. Available in sizes from 16” – 23” the tyre has impeccable credentials making it ideal for a wide range of premium and high performance car applications. The tyre offers a perfect balance of sport and comfort with excellent wet performance, low noise and low levels of rolling resistance for fuel saving.
Indeed, the tyre has even been fitted as OE to the new BMW X3, the first time that the BMW Group has selected Yokohama product as factory fit.
Another product firmly established in the Yokohama range is the directional ADVAN FLEVA V701 tyre, designed to deliver sporty handling and plenty of grip for executive, family saloon and hatchback cars.
Available in sizes from 15” – 20”, the FLEVA features a distinctive directional tread design which not only looks impressive but also helps deliver stunning levels of performance.
