20-02-2019 Apollo

The ADAC has just released the results of its latest summer tyre test, which looked at commercial van tyres for the first time. The Apollo Altrust was given the highest score of the 16 tyre models tested in this category.

ADAC’s summer tyre test analysed 16 tyres in the size 215/65 R16C 109T. The 13 criteria included performance on dry and wet surfaces, as well as performance in terms of durability, noise and fuel consumption, resulting in a comprehensive overview. The Apollo Altrust received the highest score in the category, with a ‘recommended’ rating and the strongest performance on dry and wet roads.

Focus on stability

The Apollo Altrust is the end-result of research into the specific needs of van and light truck drivers. Stability in combination with high loads is very important for these end-users. Therefore the Altrust was especially designed to meet these specific demands, resulting in a tyre that performs very well on stability and safety.

Double podium

Apollo’s sister brand Vredestein was also recognised in the ADAC summer tyre test in the size 185/65 R15 88H, with the Sportrac 5 being declared one of just two models worthy of the ‘highly recommended’ rating.
