The team at Auto Bild Allrad faced a problem when it came to performing their annual winter tyre test – they couldn’t find enough snow. To get around this shortcoming, the testers travelled to Japan with their equipment and ten brands of European market winter tyres. They also took a set of summer tyres with them for comparison and to serve as a warning to anyone tempted to drive on them in the snow and ice.
With the introduction of a new winter tyre, Apollo Tyres now offers some 60 winter products. The latest addition to the tyre maker’s cold weather portfolio is the Apollo Aspire XP Winter, which is being rolled out in 23 sizes to cover most popular fitments.
