Our product range fits well with the Malaysian consumer requirements and with the support of our key distribution and retail partners in Malaysia, we have been able to penetrate most of the key replacement tyre market segments. Now that we have a foothold in Malaysia, we believe it is the perfect time to step up our focus in this market with the establishment of the Apollo Tyres’ Malaysian subsidiary.”

With one of the best road infrastructures in the entire ASEAN region, Malaysia has above 90% radicalization levels in the commercial vehicle segment. Apollo Tyres, with its Apollo Endurance range of truck-bus radials, which has already received high acceptance from Malaysian customers, is keen to further establish the Apollo brand at the top tier of the truck-bus radials market. Similarly, Apollo’s passenger car tyres portfolio is capable of servicing nearly 90% of the Malaysian car tyre market, which is currently, one of the largest in the ASEAN region.

“The setting-up of this office, and a legal entity, in addition to accelerating our revenue growth in this market, will also bring us closer to the Malaysian customers and help us better meet their requirements across the entire spectrum of applications,” added Satish Sharma.

    Apollo Alnac 4G tyresd, I purchased 2 tyres for my vehicle, both the tyres have same problems, while driving one got burst on the road after 2 months of purchase and the 2nd tyre has again shown a cut and sometimes it looses all the air pressure inside it.. I complained but there is no visit and they did not agree tyo replace the 2nd tyre. However they replaced/exchanged the 1st tyre at 50% price. When I ask the reason they say that the tyres can not bear the Alloy wheels weigth and it happens with a lot of cars which has Allow wheels fitting.

    I guess, the tyres are totally useless if it can not work even for 6 Months, yes the tyres didn’t even complete 6 Months.

      Well, Rahul,

      with tires it is difficult to comment as we have no idea the road conditions you drove on and also the state of your suspension system. Best you take this up with your nearest Apollo tire dealer and write to their HQ.
