Apollo Vredestein to supply OE tyres for Volkswagen Touareg

The quality and performance of Apollo Vredestein products have received another endorsement with the recent decision by German carmaker Volkswagen to start fitting the Volkswagen Touareg with two 18 inch premium products from Vredestein. Both the Quatrac 5 (all-season tyre) and the Ultrac Satin (summer tyre) have been chosen for original equipment fitting on Volkswagen’s new flagship SUV.

The Vredestein Ultrac Satin 255/60 R18 108W chosen by Volkswagen is typified by its low rolling resistance, unique traction-enhancing resin and Z-shaped grooves in the tread which results in outstanding grip and handling on wet roads. In turn, this premium summer tyre offers outstanding performance, while helping reduce CO₂ emissions.

The other tyre model chosen by Volkswagen is the Vredestein Quatrac 5 255/60 R18 108V, a successful test-winning all-season tyre, over five million of which have been sold since its introduction in 2014. The Quatrac 5 has benefited from more than 20 years all-season experience and ensures perfect grip in bends, as well as fast acceleration even on snow and ice. The Quatrac 5 also features the Three Peak Mountain Snowflake symbol reflecting the fact that it complies with guidelines in countries where winter tyres are mandatory.


This is another key milestone within our brand’s premium and ultra-high performance strategy - Mathias Heimann (President Europe, Apollo Vredestein)

Both tyre models offer high comfort through outstanding performance, have received green EU tyre labels for wet grip and fuel efficiency, and generate exceptionally low noise levels. Apollo Vredestein is looking forward to showcasing the driving pleasure of these premium tyres to owners of the new Volkswagen Touareg.

  “We are proud that Vredestein has been selected as an original equipment brand for the Volkswagen Touareg in Europe,” says Mathias Heimann – President Europe at Apollo Vredestein. “This is another key milestone within our brand’s premium and ultra-high performance strategy.”
