Giti Tire to launch next generation GT Radial drive axle tyre at CV Show

Giti Tire will use CV Show 2015 to launch its latest GT Radial next generation drive-axle tyre, as well as highlight the strength and depth of the ever-expanding portfolio.

GT-Radial-copyWith 21 patterns on show from a range consisting of 28, the stand will be split into road, combi, urban, mixed and winter to allow for a far more defined customer experience.

Making its debut at stand 4G40, the GDR638 is a high-performance drive axle tyre designed specifically for medium-sized trucks and buses.

A new pattern featuring four longitudinal grooves provides good traction and braking with improved vehicle stability and driver comfort, while a new casing and footprint design delivers good regular wear with high-mileage potential.

The GDR638 will be available in April in 245/70R17.5 and 235/75R17.5, with seven further 17.5” and 19.5” sizes due before the end of the year.

Also on stand at CV Show 2015 will be the GSR225 Combi Road steer axle, which is Euro VI compliant on all steer applications, the GAU861 all-position urban city-bus, the GAM831 non-directional, all-position mixed service, GSW226 winter-marked high-traction steer axle plus the GAR820 regional all-position tyres.

Tony McHugh, TBR Sales and Marketing Director UK at Giti Tire, said: “The company has an ongoing product development programme for GT Radial, hence every 12 months we have new and next generation tyres making their debuts at literally every show we attend.

“With every new tyre we see a marked increase in quality, as proven by research and development criteria and on-the-road trials prior to launch. This objective forms the basis of the brand’s goal, to produce premium quality tyres at mid-market prices.”

Through state-of-the-art research and development capabilities, GT Radial is a specifically designed European mission-matched product range, providing a highly attractive mid-tier solution for CV operators who are looking for a premium quality product with excellent value-added fleet services.

All new heavy truck and bus products are the result of the company’s advanced testing and evaluation programme, with more than 1,000 tyres on field test across Europe at anytime. The casings of each are designed for retreading using both cold and hot processes.
