TMT Tanks & Trailers selects Apollo Tyres as OE

Italian trailer manufacturer TMT Tanks & Trailers has selected Apollo Tyres’ EnduRace RT2 tyre as original equipment (OE) for its premium ‘moving floor’ truck trailers.

The partnership marks another milestone for the tyre manufacturer as it expands its portfolio of OE relationships across Europe.

TMT has just taken delivery of its first order from Apollo Tyres, including two different sizes of the EnduRace RT2 for 22.5-inch wheels: the 385/65 R22.5 and the new 385/55 R22.5 which was launched last month.

Produced at Apollo Tyres’ Gyöngyöshalász plant in Hungary, the EnduRace RT2 features an advanced structure and tread pattern that affords even wear and uniform pressure distribution across a wide contact area, minimising rolling resistance and noise, as well as ensuring low rates of wear to help manage whole-life costs.

The tyre has been designed with a reinforced casing and a tread compound which reduces abrasion and heat build-up to offer enhanced tear-resistance and levels of durability 1.7 times greater than the European regulatory requirement.

Apollo Tyres says the EnduRace RT2 also offers outstanding grip in wet and winter conditions. The tyre is certified for snow grip with the ‘three-peak mountain snowflake’ mark, ensuring high levels of performance and safety throughout the year.

Apollo Tyres launched the second-generation EnduRace RT line in 2021, building on the success of the original in 2017. The new tyre has been a popular choice among medium- and long-distance hauliers in Europe, offering improvements across the board over its predecessor; most notably, rolling resistance, wet grip and durability.
