The GAR820 has been specifically designed to respond to the fast development of modern medium sized trucks increased requirements for comfort, low noise, good wet grip and handling in additional to excellent wear-out performances. The tyre is M&S marked indicating excellent all-season traction.

Peter Foulkes, Marketing Director Europe – Commercial tyres at Giti tyre, manufacturer of GT Radial, said: “The GAR820 has been very well received in the marketplace and feedback from operators has been nothing short of exceptional, with the tyre’s price-per-kilometre coming in for particular praise.

“The new sizes have been in demand since the initial tyre was commercially launched in the latter half of 2012, and we expect the uptake to be quick and strong as we continue to establish ourselves at the top of the mid-tier range tyre sector.”
