Yokohama OE for 2 New Toyotas
Yokohama has announced two new OE fitment agreements for North American markets. The first of these is for the 2010 Toyota Prius, which will be delivered to US and Canadian customers fitted with Yokohama’s AVIDR S33D in size P195/65R15 89S. Last November Goodyear also announced its Assurance Fuel Max tyre will be fitted as OE to the third-generation Prius. Toyota’s 4Runner will also be Yokohama shod in US, Canada and Mexico, with models of the SUV in these markets supplied with the GeolandarR G96B in size P245/60R20 107H.
“Both of the fitments are on extremely popular vehicles,” said Jeremy Kahrs, Yokohama manager, OE Sales. “The Toyota Prius is an iconic hybrid car that matches perfectly with Yokohama’s long-standing environmental principles. The Toyota 4Runner is the classic midsize SUV and has been for decades. It has a strong reputation for on- and off-road performance and durability, as do our Geolandar tyres. That’s why this fitment is such an ideal match.”
