The Yokohama Rubber Co., Ltd., announced today that it is supplying its ADVAN Sport V107 tires to BMW M GmbH as original equipment (OE) on the BMW M3 Sedan and BMW M4 Coupe.
Yokohama Rubber began supplying the tires in November 2020, shipping 275/40ZR18 (103Y) size front tires and 285/35ZR19 (103Y) size rear tires. The two new models join the M5 as BMW M models using YOKOHAMA tires as original equipment, said the tyre maker.
According to Yokohama, the tires being supplied to BMW M were jointly developed with the automaker and feature a specially developed compound and a tread pattern with the groove area adjusted to achieve superior dry performance and wear resistance.
The tire also has received the EU labeling system’s highest “A” grade for wet performance. Its mound profile provides uniform surface contact that further contributes to superior its dry performance and wear resistance.
The company says that the tire structure delivers the direct handling and high steering stability essential for high-power premium cars. The superior performance of this tire developed especially for new M3 Sedan and M4 Coupe was confirmed through test runs at Nürburgring, widely considered to be the world’s harshest test circuit, with a length of about 25km, 200 corners, and an elevation differential of 300m.
BMW M cars use OE tires from a select group of tiremakers, and the sidewall of all selected tires, including this “ADVAN Sport V107”, bear BMW’s star mark symbol of approval, which indicates the German automakers’ recognition of the tiremakers’ technical capabilities, quality, and reliability.
