The Yokohama Rubber Company, Ltd. of Tokyo, Japan was founded in 1917 as a joint venture between Yokohama Cable Manufacturing and B.F. Goodrich. By 1969, the company created the Yokohama Tire Corporation in North America. Through attention to detail and high quality manufacturing, Yokohama has become the seventh largest tire manufacturer in the world. Yokohama is renowned for its high quality performance tires.

Yokohama Tires have been mounted as original equipment on a very impressive list of automobiles, including: the Acura NSX, Aston Martin, Bentley, Dodge Stealth, Lotus Elise, Mazda Miata, Mercedes AMG, Mitsubishi 3000 GT, Porsche 911 and Boxter and the Scion tC.

When looking for the very best tire on the market for your performance car, look to the Yokohama ultra high performance tire models: Advan, AVS and Parada. Yokohama Advan tires are street tires heavily influenced by Yokohama racing technology. The 17" size of the A032R makes it perfect for competition driving. If you take your street-legal car autocrossing, you must seriously consider Yokohama ultra high performance tires.

If you want a tire that is perfectly suited to your performance or sports car, but not quite a racing tire, consider one of the Yokohama High Performance models. Yokohama High Performance models offer superior handling while still delivering comfort and long tread life.

Light truck and SUV owners need not feel left out. Yokohama makes performance tires for you too. Advan, AVS and AVID model performance tires can be fitted to your vehicle. If you want a more traditional tire for some serious off-roading, choose one of Yokohama's Geolandar model tires. Geolander tires are designed to perform on virtually any surface, from dunes to rocky terrain to mud. Don't think you can just take them off-road, though. Geolandar tires are at home on the streets and highways too.
