Yokohama Rubber Company

nihongo|The Yokohama Rubber Company, Limited|横浜ゴム株式会社|Yokohama Gomu Kabushiki-gaisha (tyo|5101) is a tire company based in Tokyo, Japan. The company founded and started in 1917 in a joint venture between Yokohama Cable Manufacturing and B.F. Goodrich. In 1969 the company expanded to the United States as Yokohama Tire Corporation. The Aspec A300 was the driving force behind its tremendous rise. Branding, especially in Japan, will often use "ADVAN" instead of Yokohoma. ADVAN wheels and tires have a strong presence in the JDM aftermarket scene around the globe, as well as the after-market scene in Japan itself.
