Features of Apollo VIRAT Tyres:

Apollo VIRAT tyres offer a highly differential proposition with its new lug design, distinguished lug geometry, new-gen aesthetics and superior performance. These tyres have more rubber deployed in the wearing zone for even wear and longer tyre life.

The curved lug geometry and rounder groove profile towards the shoulder ensures faster mud removal from the bucket area between lugs for a stronger grip. The dual tapered lug design makes the tyre less prone to punctures, resulting in reduced downtime.

The tight lines, sharp edges and uniformly varying cross-sectional area of lugs, along with the sidewall design with bold fonts and bold crop mnemonics on shoulders provide a unique aesthetic design to Apollo VIRAT tyres.
