Yokohama has announced a new tyre along with further new OEM fitments reinforcing its commitment to continuous development and performance in both fields.
Recently previewed at the Geneva Motor Show, the Yokohama ADVAN Fleva V701 is the latest addition to the manufacturer’s flagship range. Developed with high levels of grip and sporty handling characteristics, it is aimed at drivers looking for a performance edge.
It has been designed with an asymmetric pattern, to deliver outstanding performance in both open road and urban environments. The Fleva will feature an A rating for wet weather grip under the European labelling system.
Initially available in a range of 24 sizes in the last quarter of 2016, this will expand to 43 sizes by early 2017 and cover a diameter range from 15in to 20in.
The Fleva joins the ADVAN Sport V105 and the ADVAN Neova AD08R in the ADVAN range. Respectively, these are high-performance road and road/track day tyres, designed to give the best combination of grip, safety and performance for drivers who require the highest levels of each.
Yokohama has further expanded its Original Equipment (OE) fitment portfolio, already chosen by numerous manufacturers as factory-fit tyres on some of the world’s most prestigious marques. The latest additions are the new Porsche 911, Boxster and Cayman models, which will be fitted with Yokohama ADVAN Sport V105 tyres as standard.
The 911 will run 235/40ZR19 and 295/35ZR19 sized tyres while both the Cayman and Boxster run 235/40ZR19 at the front and 265/40ZR19 on the rear.
Yokohama’s expanding line-up of original equipment fitments stand as a testament to its working relationships with performance-focused brands such as Audi, Lotus, Mercedes-Benz and Porsche.
