Giti Tire to debut GT Radial GSR225 Combi Road range at CV Show

Giti Tire will debut the expanded GT Radial GSR225 Combi Road range at CV Show 2016, while continuing to promote its growing GT REE Tread and three-peak mountain snowflake (3PMSF) certified programmes.


Available to view in Hall 4 on Stand G20, they form part of a comprehensive truck and bus display which is divided into long haul, regional, mixed service, urban and winter operations for a more defined visitor experience.

The GSR225 Combi Road multi-use steer axle range has three new 19.5” sizes – 245/70R19.5, 265/70R19.5 and 285/70R19.5 – as well as upgraded load indices for its next generation 22.5” tyres to further meet Euro VI vehicle compliance requirements as well as the 275/70R22.5 for today’s car transporters.

The GT Radial retreading programme, GT REE Tread has recently added size 315/70R22.5 to its GDR690 range to specifically target UK fleet operators looking to maximise price per kilometre. The tyre is also available in 295/80R22.5 and 315/80R2.5, alongside the GTR990 regional trailer pattern in size 385/65R22.5.

Also on stand at CV Show 2016 will be the GTL919 long haul trailer tyre in 19.5” and 22.5”, 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: “In conjunction with the brand’s value- added support services – GT Assist and GT Fleet – our staff will place emphasis on high-load steer tyres for Euro VI vehicles and our 3PMSF certified products for operators requiring proven winter capabilities across Europe.
“The CV Show has always been an excellent event for the GT Radial brand, every year we are proud to display an ever-evolving portfolio of new and next generation tyres, as well as services, which ultimately means our entire mid-range proposition becomes stronger and more competitive.”

GT Radial is a mission-matched product range, providing a highly attractive solution for fleet operators who are looking for high-quality products with excellent service back-up.

All new heavy truck and bus products are the result of the company’s advanced testing and evaluation programme, with tyres field tested and followed up closely by Giti engineers in fleets across Europe at anytime. All casings are designed for retreading using both cold and hot processes. /ends.
