Yokohama announced today that Mercedes-AMG has selected its “ADVAN Sport V107” tyres as original equipment for two models in the automaker’s new GLE 63-series—the GLE 63 4MATIC+ and the GLE 63 4MATIC+ Coupe, which were launched in Europe in March 2020. The new models come equipped with 285/40ZR22 110Y size front tyres and 325/35ZR22 114Y size rear tyres or 275/50ZR20 113Y size tyres both for front and rears.
The “ADVAN Sport V107” is a high-performance tyre developed by Yokohama Rubber 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 automakers around the world in recognition of its technologies and quality.
Yokohama also announced today that it is supplying its “ADVAN Sport V107″ tyres to Mercedes-AMG for use as original equipment on the automaker’s new GLA 35 4MATIC and GLA 45 4MATIC+ and GLA 45 S 4MATIC+ models in June 2020. The cars are being equipped with either 19-inch 235/50ZR19 99Y tyres or 21-inch 255/35ZR21 98Y tyres.
And finally, Yokohama announced today that Mercedes-AMG has selected its “ADVAN Sport V107” tyres as original equipment for the new GLE 53 4MATIC+ Coupe, which was launched in Europe in November 2019. The new GLE 53 4MATIC+ Coupe comes equipped with 285/40ZR22 110Y size front tyres and 325/35ZR22 114Y size rear tyres or 275/50ZR20 113Y size tyres both for front and rears. The “ADVAN Sport V107” is also equipped on the GLE 53 4MATIC+.
