Giti launches 17.5” GAU867v1 for hard urban distribution
Giti Tire has extended its Giti GAU867v1 all-position tyre range to size 215/75R17.5. The tyre is suitable for small ‘stop-start’ city buses and 7.5 tonne delivery vehicles within the growth market of urban transportation. The tyre replaces the established Giti GAR820 in this size.
The GAU867v1 is designed for hard urban use. It has robust sidewall scrubbing protection that defends the tyre from kerbing damage and abrasions. Deep sidewall wear indicators to show the correct time to rotate or demount the tyre. The tyre utilises the manufacturer’s latest casing construction. This enhances mileage and regular wear thanks to its optimised footprint, reinforced tread compound and stiff pattern design.
The tyre has been certified to meet the EU 117-02 legal requirement for safe winter performances and is 3PMSF marked, a key customer demand in markets throughout Europe.
The Giti GAU867v1, originally launched just over one year ago in 22.5” sizes to replacing the popular Giti GAU861 and Giti GT867 patterns, is also available in 275/70R22.5, 295/80R22.5 and 11R22.5.
Giti’s truck and bus portfolio is developed in conjunction with Giti Tire’s European Research & Development Centre in Hannover, Germany.
