The agreement with Apollo Tyres, which owns the Vredestein product brand, means that the supplied Ultrac tyres, in size 225/55 R18 102 Y XL specification, will be fitted to vehicles on the manufacturing line at the Group’s German facilities.

This is the latest agreement between the BMW Group and Apollo Tyres, following the OE fitment of the Vredestein Ultrac for the X1 (205/65 R17 100Y XL), and in three sizes (205/65R16 95W, 205/60R17 97W XL and 225/50R18 99W XL) for the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer.

To further support BMW customers throughout ownership, Ultrac tyres will be available on the replacement market as well as via franchised dealers of the BMW Group.

Produced at Apollo Tyres’ Gyöngyöshalász plant in Hungary, the Vredestein Ultrac offers impressive levels of grip and rolling resistance and has been developed to facilitate safe and enjoyable driving in both the wet and dry. The tyre achieves an ‘A’ rating in the wet grip tyre label category, satisfying the BMW Group’s focus on safety and performance, and it is suitable for a wide selection of family and compact cars.

Benoit Rivallant, President Europe, at Apollo Tyres, said: “Our R&D team has worked tirelessly to design and develop our Ultrac range to deliver high levels of performance, durability and safety, in a package that is suitable for a wide range of vehicles. We are proud to add the BMW X2 and 5 Series to our growing list of vehicles fitted with Ultrac tyres as standard.”

In its latest summer tyre test results, Auto Express commended the Ultrac for its ‘excellent wet weather performance, particularly in severe conditions’. The Ultrac also achieved second place in Auto Zeitung’s 2022 summer tyre group. During the test, the German motoring magazine labelled the Ultrac as a ‘Very Recommended’ tyre for use in a range of conditions and in regions that often face unpredictable weather.
