Yokohama Tire announced that its “ADVAN Sport V107” has received technical certification as original equipment on Mercedes-AMG’s new SUV, the GLB 35 4MATIC, which went on sale in Europe in December 2019. The GLB 35 can be outfitted with 21-inch 255/35ZR21 98Y size “ADVAN Sport V107” tires.
“ADVAN Sport V107” tires are the ultimate high-performance tires 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 tire’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 tire’s high standard, its sidewall bears the automaker’s “MO1” mark of approval.
