The addition of the Brazilian brand is designed to complement the company’s existing portfolio, which includes well-known names like TSW and MAK. The range includes designs for the growing performance road car and sport SUV segements. Yokohama HPT will exclusively distribute the new wheels in the UK.
The TUV-approved Mangels range includes a variety of designs, sure to suit any vehicle. The Driver, for example, is a five-spoke, dished design, which gives an enhanced sense of width to the wheel. Also, the fact that the wheel features thin spokes means brakes and suspension components can be cooled and shown-off in equal measure. The Driver is available in Dark Gloss, Chrome or Black all with or without a machined lip. It comes in a range of sizes from 7×17 to 8.5×19 for passenger cars and 8.5×20 for sport and SUV models.
The Maxima range, available with either five or six pairs of spokes and are therefore known as the Maxima5 and Maxima6 models. These wheels are available in Dark Gloss, Chrome or silver with the Maxima5 ranging from 7×15 to 8×18, while the Maxima6 comes in either 7×15 or 7×17 sizes.
At the same time Yokohama HPT also launched the Winner and Futura lines which are available in a Dark Gloss, Chrom or silver. The Winner is also available in a particularly attractive diamond-machined face, which Yokohama HPT managing director, David Seward tips as a popular choice for 2006.
Commenting on the launch of the new range, Mr Seward said: “The addition of the Mangels range complements the existing products in our alloy wheel portfolio, from TSW and MAK, perfectly. We can now supply any styling option the customer requires, whether that is aggressive, smooth and stylish or motorsport inspired. Our range now caters for a huge fitment and every budget.”
