Giti Tire demonstrates expanded range

Giti Tire will be demonstrating some of its most popular tyres at this year’s Show (Stand 4G20), including its expanded GT Radial GSR225 Combi Road line-up, its growing GT REE Tread and three-peak mountain snowflake (3PMSF) certified programmes.

The tyres 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 6 vehicle compliance requirements.

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 the stand will be the GAU861 all-position urban city-bus tyre, the GAM831 non-directional, all-position mixed service tyre, GSW226 winter-marked high-traction steer axle tyre and the GAR820 regional all-position tyres.

Tony McHugh, Sales and Marketing Director, said: “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 proposition becomes stronger and more competitive.”

The 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.

GT Radial tyres are distributed in Ireland by Modern Tyres.
