Yokohama Advan Sport Chosen as OE for Nissan 370Z
Yokohama Rubber has announced its flagship Advan tyre has been selected as OE for the Nissan 370Z in various world markets. The Advan Sport in size 225/50R18 95W for the front and 245/45R18 96W for the rear will be fitted; vehicles equipped with the tyres were released in Japan on December 1, 2008, and will be gradually introduced into the global market. For the North American market, however, the car will be supplied with Bridgestone Potenza RE50A tyres, Bridgestone announced in November.
The Advan Sport was selected as OE for the Nissan 370Z for its proven stability and comfort at high speeds, says Yokohama, as well as for its breaking performance. The announcement of fitment to the new “Z” car adds to an already impressive OE list – the Advan has been chosen as original equipment for the Bentley Continental series, the Porsche 911 Carrera 4, the Audi S8, and three models in Mercedes Benz’s top class AMG series.
