Vredestein summer, all-season tyres OE on VW Touareg
We heard in June that Goodyear was supplying original equipment tyres to the new Volkswagen Touareg, and Apollo Vredestein now shares that it will supply two 18-inch fitments to the latest version of VW’s flagship SUV. Buyers selecting an all-season fitment as standard can select the Vredestein Quatrac 5 in size 255/60 R18 108V, while those preferring summer rubber can plump for the Vredestein Ultrac Satin in size 255/60 R18 108W.
“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.”
“This is particularly good news for Vredestein in the UK market,” adds Karl Naylor, Apollo Vredestein UK country manager. “The SUV vehicle segment continues to show significant growth in the UK; gaining OE approval on the summer and all-season tyres is ideal for our market and our climate, and it reflects the premium quality for which Vredestein products are so well-known.”
