Yokohama ADVAN Sport V105 tires came to replace ADVAN Sport V103 model in 2012. Its appearance was preceded by an entrenched trend on the market, which requires a premium car tire with high-speed capabilities and increased comfort. The development of the V105 with the participation of Mercedes-Benz engineers took place in the research center "Nürburgring" - one of the most famous racing circuits in the world. This led to the fact that even before the appearance of these UHP-tires in the retail network, they have already been homologated by the German automobile concern for a number of models.

The basis of ADVAN Sport V105 tires is the experience, implemented in the previous model. The composition of the rubber mixture, internal construction, and tread pattern has been improved.

To improve accuracy and reduce response time to steering wheel turns, the model received a new internal structure called Matrix Rayon Body Ply, borrowed from Yokohama tires participating in various races of world motorsports. This bent at a certain angle carcass is turned out to the inner side of ADVAN Sport V105 tread, which significantly increased circumferential stiffness of the tire, due to what, actually, the responsiveness to the slightest actions of the driver was increased.
