The new Mercedes-AMG EQS 53 4MATIC+ is being fitted with Yokohama Advan Sport V107 in size 275/35R22 104Y front and rear tyres.
The Yokohama Rubber Co., Ltd., announced that it has begun delivering Advan Sport V107 tyres for use as original equipment (OE) on Mercedes-AMG’s first electric vehicle (EV), the Mercedes-AMG EQS 53 4MATIC+, which was announced in September, 2021. The new EV is being fitted with 275/35R22 104Y size front and rear tyres.
The Advan Sport V107 is a high-performance tyre in Yokohama’s global flagship Advan brand. The tyres being supplied were codeveloped by Yokohama Rubber and Mercedes-AMG to meet the German carmaker’s highest technological standards. To achieve the high level of rolling resistance required for EVs, the tyres use a newly developed compound that reduces heat generation during normal driving more than tyres previously supplied to Mercedes-AMG. In addition, the tyre’s profile structure, crucial for uniform road contact pressure, and a newly developed pattern arrangement reduce acceleration passing noise in line with United Nations Economic Commission for Europe regulation UN-ECE R51-03. The new Advan Sport V107’s combination of excellent driving performance and environment-friendly features make it a perfect tyre for the Mercedes-AMG EQS 53 4MATIC+, the Mercedes-AMG brand’s first EV. The tyre accordingly features the Mercedes-AMG’s “MO1” mark of approval on the sidewall.
