TOKYO— Daimler A.G. has selected Yokohama Rubber Co. Ltd.'s Advan Sport V105 MO tires as original equipment for its new Mercedes-Benz S-Class models, the car maker's flagship line.
Tire size for the S-Class models is 245/50R18 100W.
Yokohama and Daimler developed the Advan Sport V105 MO together. The "MO" mark on the side of each tire is Daimler's official stamp of approval, the tire maker said. Yokohama said the tires reduced rolling resistance and improved wear meet the tire maker's standards for environmentally friendly products.
Yokohama tires also have equipped several other Mercedes-Benz models over the years, including the G-Class, E-Class Coupe, C-Class, SL-Class, SLK-Class, B-Class and the A-Class.
