New BMW M5 to roll on Yokohama ADVAN Sport V105
BMW Group will use Yokohama Rubber Company’s flagship tyre ADVAN Sport V105 as original equipment for the new M5 model. Debuted in March 2018, the new BMW M5 will come equipped with tyres 275/40ZR19 (105Y) for front and 285/40ZR19 (107Y) for the rear.
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. The tyres being supplied for the new BMW M5 were jointly developed with BMW and bear the German automaker’s star marking of approval on the tyre sidewall. In addition to being selected as original equipment for the BMW M5, the tyre also comes factory-installed on the BMW X3, which debuted in November 2017, as well as topline high-performance models from other leading global automakers.
Yokohama Rubber also supplies its high-performance racing tyres to BMW racing teams. Schnitzer Motorsport’s BMW M3 captured the first World Touring Car Championship in 1987 and also won the European Touring Car Championship in 1988.
