Yokohama has announced it has begun supplying its Avid GT passenger car tyre as original equipment (OE) for Toyota’s new RAV4 crossover SUV, which was first launched in North America in 2018 and has since been introduced in Japan, South Korea, Europe, and other markets. The new RAV4 is coming equipped with 235/55R19 101V size tyres.
The company says the Avid GT was developed by applying the basic design and material technologies featured in its “environmentally, human, and socially friendly” BluEarth global tyre brand to the Avid passenger car tyre previously sold in the North American market. Developed to deliver a safe ride during a sudden snowfall, the Avid GT bears the M+S (mud + snow) marking on its sidewall. In addition, says Yokohama, the tyre enhances the vehicle’s fuel efficiency while also providing superior drivability and safety.
