GT Radial unveils new retread

Giti Tire is expanding its GT Radial retreading portfolio and launching a new tyre, the GDR690 GT REE Tread, a drive position regional tyre available in 295/80 and 315/80 sizes, which is solely manufactured using only GT Radial casings at the Commercial Vehicle Show at the NEC in Birmingham this week

An acronym for reliable, economical and environmental, the REE Tread is a high quality, hot cure bead-to-bead retread designed to both lower costs for operators and reduce the environmental impact of tyres.

The move marks the first development of the range since launching the GTR990 REE Tread regional trailer pattern in size 385/65R22.5.

Giti Tire also used the CV to promote its GT Radial bus and coach credentials, with the GAU861 all position urban city-bus, GSR225 Combi Road steer axle, GAR820 regional all-position pattern and GT629 dedicated drive axle tyres all taking centre stage.

In addition the new GAM831 non-directional, all-position mixed service tyre made its show debut alongside several established, popular fleet products. The company displayed a number of sizes, highlighting the breadth and depth of its portfolio.
