Yokohama To Supply ADVAN Sport V107 Tyres For BMW’s M3 Sedan And M4 Coupe As OE

Yokohama’s ‘ADVAN Sport V107’ tyres will be provided as original equipment (OE) on the BMW M3 Sedan and BMW M4 Coupe. The tyre sizes supplied consist of 275/40ZR18 (103Y) size front tyres and 285/35ZR19 (103Y) size rear tyres.

 

This step is taken to conform to the Yokohama Transformation 2023 plan to maximise sales. One of the main initiatives being implemented under this strategy is the expansion of ADVAN and GEOLANDAR tyres as original equipment on new cars.

 

 The ADVAN Sport V107s are also available as OE on the BMW M5. The tyre has been tested at the Nürburgring test circuit to suit public roads as well as race tracks. It has been developed together with BMW to achieve dry performance and wear resistance. Not just this, it also boasts of achieving the EU labelling system’s highest grade for wet performance. The tyre’s structure is designed to give the car high manoeuvrability.

 

The BMW M3 owes a number of wins in the motorsport history to Yokohama’s racing tyres. The manufacturer won championships like the first World Touring Car Championship in 1987 and the European Touring Car Championship in 1988. BMW M3s running on Yokohama tyres also bagged wins in endurance races, with a combined five 24-Hours Nürburgring and Spa-Francorchamps races, Florida’s 24 Hours of Daytona, as well as 12 Hours of Sebring.
