The Yokohama Rubber Company has begun supplying ADVAN Sport V105 tyres to Porsche as original equipment (OE) for the Cayenne premium SUV. Yokohama tyres have been used as OE on Porsche’s Cayenne since the SUV was first introduced, with the new Cayenne the third model to be fitted with YOKOHAMA tyres. The Cayenne model comes equipped with 285/35ZR22 (106Y) size front tires and 315/30ZR22 (107Y) rear tyres. The third model of the Cayenne has been sold globally since end of 2018.
The ADVAN Sport V105 is a high-performance tyre developed by Yokohama Rubber primarily for use on high-power premium automobiles. The tyre delivers excellent driving performance combined with superior comfort and safety characteristics.
Under its medium-term management plan, Grand Design 2020 (GD2020), Yokohama Rubber has positioned the expansion of its presence in the premium tire markets as the core goal for its consumer tire business. One of the specific strategies for achieving that goal is the ‘premium-car tire strategy’, which aims to increase use of YOKOHAMA tyres as OE on premium cars in Japan and abroad by making Yokohama Rubber the tyre maker chosen by automakers around the world in recognition of its technologies and quality.
