Apollo Tyres Adds New Size Option to Endurace RD2 Regional Drive Truck and Bus Tyre Range

Apollo Tyres is expanding its range of EnduRace RD2 truck and bus tyres with the launch of a new 295/80 size option. Available across Europe from April 2024, the new product is the latest addition to Apollo Tyres’ Regional Drive tyre portfolio, complementing the popular 315/70 and 315/80 variants of its second-generation EnduRace RD2.

Available for 22.5-inch wheels, the standard for most modern commercial truck and bus tyres, the EnduRace RD2 excels in all weather conditions and offers optimal rolling resistance, extended mileage and durability.

Manufactured in Europe, the EnduRace RD2 sets the benchmark for quality and performance at an attractive price point. Suitable for operators involved in medium- and long-distance transport, the tyre is B-rated for its performance in the wet and is certified for snow grip, bearing the ‘three peak mountain and snowflake’ symbol.

A unique groove tread pattern incorporates Apollo Tyres’ ‘Invisible Groove Technology‘ and ‘Multi-Edge‘ shoulder blocks for optimised performance on slippery surfaces. A wider contact area affords uniform pressure distribution across the tread to enhance durability and minimise rolling resistance. The reinforced casing surpasses European regulatory requirements, boasting a durability 1.7 times greater than the industry standard while offering impressive tear resistance qualities.

Yves Pouliquen, Group Head of Sales and Marketing at Apollo Tyres Europe, said: “We’re proud to offer a tyre that not only performs exceptionally well in diverse conditions but also ensures a cost-effective, long-term solution for operators. Our third size extension underlines our commitment to the Regional Drive market; we look forward to delivering further choice and new technical innovations to cater to the evolving needs of our expanding customer base.”

The original 315/80 R22.5 EnduRace RD2 received critical acclaim across the European truck and bus sector when it launched in August 2021. It was followed in July 2022 with the introduction of the 315/70 R22.5 variant.
