Yokohama Rubber eliminates counterfeit ADVAN Racing wheels  in China

Yokohama Rubber successfully eliminated counterfeit versions of the company’s ADVAN Racing wheels  in China.

The Japanese company had filed a complaint and submitted information to the Foshan Public Security Bureau, regarding a distributor of counterfeit sports car aluminium wheels imitating Yokohama’s ADVAN Racing wheels in Foshan City and Guangzhou City, Guangdong Province.

The distributor was selling the counterfeit wheels via internet shopping sites and retail shops outside of the company’s official distribution channels. Acting on the complaint and information provided by the company, the Foshan authorities seized over 900 counterfeit aluminum wheels on October 25, 2017. On March 29, 2018, Yokohama Rubber confirmed that the People’s Court of Foshan fined and sentenced the distributor of the counterfeit wheels to serve time in prison.
This is the second time that Yokohama Rubber has successfully discovered and eliminated counterfeits of its ADVAN Racing wheels in China, the first being back in 2014.
