With the additional three sizes, the AD08, nicknamed "the fastest street tire," is now available in 35 sizes ranging from 15 to 19 inches and is designed for a variety of premium sports cars and sedans, including Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Lexus and others.

The 245/40R19 94W will fit the Nissan 370Z (front); the 265/35R19 94W is for the Porsche Boxster/Cayman (rear) and BMW M3 (rear); and the 275/35R19 96W is for the Nissan 370 (rear).

"The Neova AD08 is the fastest, best-handling UHP tire on the market," said Mark Chung, Yokohama director, corporate strategy and planning. "It's the best of the best and definitely lives up to the ADVAN legacy."

According to Chung, the S.4 offers all-season W- and Y-speed-rating performance and is an optimal replacement tire for premium sedans and coupes demanding year-round wet and dry performance. The latest S.4 sizes will fit the Mercedes-Benz ML/RL, Acura MDX/ZDX, Land Rover Range Rover (255/50R19 107W); Acura MDX, Volkswagen Touareg and Porsche Cayenne (275/45R19 108W); and Volkswagen Touareg, Porsche Cayenne and Land Rover Range Rover (275/40R20 106W).
