New GT Radial retread tyre launch confirmed for CV Show 2014
Giti Tire’s expansion to its GT Radial commercial vehicle hot cure bead-to-bead retread tyre range will be announced officially at The Commercial Vehicle Show 2014. GT Radial will display the GDR690 GT REE Tread drive position regional tyre available in 295/80 and 315/80 sizes from its stand in Hall five (C60). Like the existing GTR990 385/65R22.5 super single, it will be solely manufactured using only GT Radial casings.
Confirming the details discussed with Tyrepress in February, Tony McHugh, sales and marketing director UK at Giti Tire, says the timing is right: “Over the past two years we have proven the quality of our first REE Tread tyre on numerous fleets throughout the UK, and the response from operators has been wholly positive. As per the product development plan, the GDR690 has arrived to meet customer demand.
“We are proud that the REE Tread is a hot mould cure as the process allows us to create a tyre that looks new, including properly branded sidewalls which project the right image. While GT Radial is a mid-tier brand, we must produce premium tyres in addition to first-class value-added services.”
Giti Tire will also be using CV Show 2014 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 will make its show debut alongside several established, popular fleet products. The company will display a number of sizes, highlighting the breadth and depth of its portfolio.
