Yokohama Rubber Company

The Yokohama Rubber Company, Limited (横浜ゴム株式会社, Yokohama Gomu Kabushiki-gaisha) is a tire company based in Tokyo, Japan. The company was founded and began on October 13, 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 Yokohama. ADVAN wheels and tires have a strong presence in the aftermarket scene worldwide.

Yokohama is the official tire supplier of the IMSA GT3 Cup Challenge, the World Touring Car Championship and Japanese Super Formula. Yokohama has also been the official tire supplier of the Macau Grand Prix Formula 3 Intercontinental Cup race since 1983, with an exception in 2016, when Pirelli was chosen for the tire supplier that year. Yokohama is also the official tire partner of former American Le Mans Series GT2 team PTG from 2005 to 2009.

In the United States, Yokohama Tire Corporation has participated in ALMS, Red Line Time Attack, and Stadium Super Trucks.

The Yokohama Rubber logo was first displayed in the Tokyo Asahi Shimbun newspaper in 1917. The company used it until 1977. Since that time, a modern logo has been used. Like the old logo, the new one is the first letter in the brand name, but the letter itself is more dynamic and expressive. A similar style logo is used by the Taiwanese tire company Nankang Rubber Tire.
