The journey of one of the most famous tyre manufacturing enterprises, Yokohama, started when the US-based tyre manufacturer BFGoodrich created a joint venture with Yokohama Electric Cable Manufacturing Company. The 1917 venture started the journey of Yokohama, the 9th most valuable tyre manufacturing company,as of 2018.
In the last 101 years, Yokohama has created several firsts in both their home country and worldwide. Today, they have a strong presence amongst the worldwide aftermarket community. Yokohama has become immensely popular among the British car owners, partly because of their rich heritage and quality of products at offer.

Yokohama started their worldwide expansion with the inaugural introduction of their Aspec A300 tyre. It became an instant hit among professional car drivers, as well as regular car owners because of the excellent performance and durability of the product.
