Advan V61 Delivers Comfortable Ride and Stable Handling
The luxury SUV has undergone a complete renewal, pursuing the Lexus Driving Signature performance and next-generation Lexus design. Launched in Japan and overseas, including Europe, from November, the new RX is being fitted with 235/60R19 103V size Advan V61 tyres.
The V61 is a high-performance tyre under the Advan brand, Yokohama Rubber’s ultimate tyre brand. The Advan V61 tyres being installed on the RX feature a specially designed structure that delivers the comfortable ride and stable handling befitting a luxury SUV such as the RX. The tyre also features a highly rigid cover material that contributes to an exceptionally quiet ride and a compound that reduces the tyre’s heat generation and enhances its environmental performance.
Under Yokohama Rubber’s three-year (2021–2023) medium-term management plan, Yokohama Transformation 2023 (YX2023), the consumer tyre business aims to maximise the sales ratios of high-value-added Yokohama tyres. One of the key initiatives under this strategy is expanding sales of Advan and Geolandar tyres as original equipment on new cars.
