Yokohama Tires Fitted as Original Equipment on Mercedes-Benz C-Class Models

Tokyo - The Yokohama Rubber Co., Ltd., has announced that its ADVAN Sport tires for premium sports cars - part of its global flagship series - have been selected as original equipment for Mercedes-Benz C-Class models produced by Daimler AG. The tires adopted for the C-Class consist of three sizes: 205/55R16 91V, 225/45R17 91W, and 245/40R17 91W (the last only for the rear). Yokohama tires have been approved as original equipment for Mercedes-Benz’s top AMG models: CL65 and 63 AMG, C63 AMG and ML 63 AMG.

ADVAN Sport tires not only deliver high-speed stability, handling and braking on wet surfaces suitable for high-performance premium cars, but low noise and vibrations, and a smooth, comfortable ride. With such total performance, the tires were selected as original equipment for C-Class models.

The Mercedes-Benz C-Class, sold throughout the world, is one of the brand’s key model lines. It offers outstanding safety, comfort and agility, with a distinguishing product concept that emphasizes variety to meet the most diverse customer requirements. The lineup includes sedans as well as estates.

Since 2005, Yokohama Rubber has been committed to aggressive execution of all activities associated with the ADVAN brand, which stands as a symbol of Yokohama’s global concept. Recognized for their performance and quality, ADVAN tires are used on many of the world’s leading high-performance cars, including the Porsche 911 Carrera 4, the Audi S8 and the Bentley Continental. In the field of motor sports, ADVAN tires have been the designated control tires for the FIA World Touring Car Championship (WTCC) since 2006.
