Yokohama has announced that it is now supplying its global flagship Advan Sport V105 tyres to BMW for use as original equipment on the new M5 model. The new BMW M5 will come equipped with tyres 275/40ZR19 (105Y) for the front and 285/40ZR19 (107Y) for the rear.

The Advan Sport V105 is a high-performance tyre developed by Yokohama primarily for use on high-power premium vehicles. The tyres being supplied for the new M5 were jointly developed with BMW and bear the German automaker’s star marking of approval on the tire sidewall.

In addition to being selected as original equipment for the M5, the Advan Sport V105 also comes factory-installed on the BMW X3, which debuted in November 2017, as well as top-line high-performance models from other leading global automakers.
