The Yokohama Advan Sport V107 has received technical certification as original equipment on Mercedes-AMG’s new SUV, the GLB 35 4MATIC.
The SUV went on sale in Europe in December 2019. The GLB 35 can be outfitted with 21-inch 255/35ZR21 98Y size Advan Sport V107 tyres.
The Advan Sport V107 tyres are the ultimate high-performance tyres in Yokohama Rubber’s premier Advan brand. The version of the Advan Sport V107 that received technical certification for use on the GLB 35 was jointly developed with Mercedes-AMG to achieve the superior dry and wet performance required by SUVs. The company said, the tyre’s superior wet performance, achieved by adjusting the tread pattern’s groove area and using a specially developed compound, has earned the EU labeling system’s highest A grade. In addition, its structure and compound have been fine-tuned to deliver the superior handling and steering stability that are indispensable for high-power premium cars. In recognition of the tyre’s high standard, its sidewall bears the automaker’s MO1 mark of approval.
