Yokohama tyres are premium products priced to offer good value, superior performance, and durability. This leads to less downtime for individuals and business and, more importantly, reduced costs per kilometre.

The ADVAN brand has a strong history and reputation synonymous with competitive motorsport and car enthusiast culture across the globe. The range has a product that spans from street-oriented performance to those chasing their perfect laps on track, equipping drivers with the tools needed to attack every corner swiftly, safely and with confidence.
