After a successful single vehicle trial conducted since the start of the year, Stoke-on-Trent City Council’s refuse collection department has opted to fit the Giti GT867 across its fleet. The urban all-position tyre in size 315/80R22.5 has reinforced sidewalls, a feature popular in the waste and urban commercial sectors, which are well suited to the council’s Dennis Eagle fleet of 4×2 and 6×2 domestic waste and 6×2 trade waste configurations.
Giti Tire has introduced its leading urban bus tyre, the Giti GT867, into the European market. The tyre, also suitable for refuse collection fleets, has reinforced sidewalls to prevent kerb damage, and is designed for constant stop and go operating conditions with frequent changes in speed and direction. The GT867 is available in 11R22.5, 295/80R22.5, 305/70R22.5 and 315/80R22.5 sizes. Load capacity ranges from 148/145 to 158/150.
