TOKYO (Oct. 24, 2007) — Yokohama Rubber Co. Ltd. will provide original equipment fitments on the 2008 Chrysler Town & Country and the 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan in North America and the Chrysler Grand Voyager in worldwide markets.
This will be Yokohama's first OE deal with Chrysler L.L.C.
The North American vehicles will sport all-season Avid S33B and Avid C33B in size 225/65R16 100S. Summer tires will be fitted on the vehicles for export, Yokohama said.
The tires will be produced in the Philippines, the tire maker said.
Yokohama also announced that its Advan winter tires have been approved by Audi A.G. as original equipment winter tires for the Audi S6 and S8. The tires are factory-fitted options for the German market, but they can be ordered at Audi dealerships worldwide, the firm said.
