Designed for 22.5-inch wheels, which are standard across most contemporary commercial trucks and buses, the EnduRace RD2 is known for its all-weather capability, offering optimal rolling resistance, increased mileage, and durability. The manufacturing process within Europe ensures the tyre meets high standards of quality and performance, offering a viable option for operators engaged in medium- and long-distance haulage.

A notable feature of the EnduRace RD2 is its unique tread pattern, incorporating Apollo Tyres’ ‘Invisible Groove Technology’ and ‘Multi-Edge’ shoulder blocks, designed to deliver enhanced performance on wet and slippery surfaces. Additionally, a wider contact area ensures even pressure distribution across the tread, improving durability and reducing rolling resistance. The tyre’s reinforced casing exceeds European regulatory standards for durability, offering 1.7 times the industry standard in durability and exceptional tear resistance.

Yves Pouliquen, Group Head of Sales and Marketing at Apollo Tyres Europe, comments on the expansion: “We’re proud to offer a tyre that performs well in a variety of conditions, providing operators with a cost-effective, long-term solution. The introduction of a third size in our range demonstrates our commitment to the Regional Drive market, and we are excited to continue offering new choices and technical innovations to meet the changing needs of our customers.”

The 315/80 R22.5 EnduRace RD2, launched in August 2021, followed by the 315/70 R22.5 variant in July 2022, received positive feedback from the European truck and bus industry. This new addition aims to further enhance Apollo Tyres' offering, giving fleet operators more options for high-quality, reliable tyres that promise performance, durability, and safety under various conditions.
