FULLERTON, CA. – Yokohama Tire Corporation is continuing to reach out to enthusiasts through grassroots programs, such as its involvement in three upcoming car shows: the Z Car Convention in San Antonio, Texas; BMW Oktoberfest in Braselton, Georgia; and Japanese Classic Car Show in Irvine, California.
“Car-club events such as these enable us to interact with loyal customers and introduce our products to new customers interested in advanced technology,” said Fred Koplin, Yokohama director, marketing communications. “We’re especially excited about our full line of ultra high-performance tires, including the new ADVAN Neova® AD08 and the ADVAN Sport ZPS® (Zero Pressure System) runflat tire, as well as our orange-oil infused dB Super E-specTM tire – all of which will be on display.”
