A uniform pressure distribution and reinforced curb rib protection makes the new Apollo Altrust remarkably durable, while a next-generation tread and base compound and optimised cavity profile will enhance fuel efficiency. The tyre’s more rounded footprint, increased resistance to aquaplaning, and the stiffer tread pattern for stable braking will augment the driver’s safety.
Light truck tyre with a focus on safety and long life span
Consistent, comfortable and controlled steering during the entire lifespan
Reinforced parking protection
Improved fuel efficiency throughout optimized construction & new compounds
Optimized wet grip thanks to a rounder footprint for better resistance to aquaplaning
Stiffer tread pattern enables stability during braking
New generation silica: high traction compound for wet performance
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.
Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm. This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.
Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow. Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.
