Yokohama has revealed it will launch five new tyres into the European market this year.
The latest addition to its global flagship Advan brand, the Advan Neova AD08RS a street sports tyre, will be marketed in Europe only from this spring. The Company plans to gradually make the tyre available in 31 sizes, ranging from 185/55R15 82V to 255/30R19 91W.
Yokohama will also launch sales in Europe of the G.T. Special Classic in a revival of Yokohama’s heritage G.T. Special brand. The new tyre is based on Yokohama’s G.T. Special Y350. It delivers a soft, comfortable ride without losing the feel of a historical car and features the same classical tread pattern and side design of its predecessor. The tyre will be available from this summer in three sizes – 165/80R15 87H, 175/80R14 88S and 165/80R14 85S.
The Geolandar X-MT, a mud-terrain tyre in its Geolandar brand of SUV and pickup truck tyres, will be available in Europe from this spring. The tyre will be available in six sizes – 35×12.50R20 LT 121Q to 7.00R16C 108/106N. The Geolandar X-MT was introduced previously in the North American market and has enjoyed a favourable response in a market where SUVs and pickup trucks are highly popular.
Yokohama will begin European sales of the Geolandar X-CV, a highway terrain tyre in its Geolandar brand for SUVs, from this spring. The tyre will be available in 23 sizes, ranging from 275/40R22 108W to 255/55R18 109W.
The Geolandar X-CV is a new highway terrain tyre developed specifically for the increasingly popular midsize and large monocoque-structure high-performance crossover SUVs that emphasize high-speed performance and drivability. While delivering the safety, comfort, durability and fuel efficiency ideal for these SUVs, the Geolandar X-CV also has the M+S designation. In addition, all tyre sizes have the “W” speed rating that indicates they are approved for speeds up to 270km/h.
Yokohama will begin selling its BluEarth-air EF21 in Europe on a limited-basis from this spring. The BluEarth-air EF21 uses advanced technologies to achieve a new lightweight design that enhances its environmentally sound features. The tyre will be available in only one size, 205/55R16 91V.
