Giti Tire will unveil its next-generation of GT Radial drive-axle tyre at this year’s Commercial Vehicle Show.

Making its debut at stand 4G40, the GDR638 has been designed with high-performance and high-mileage in mind for medium-sized trucks and buses. It will be available from April in sizes 245/70R17.5 and 235/75R17.5, with seven further 17.5-inch and 19.5-inch sizes due before the end of the year.

The firm will also showcase its ever-expanding portfolio of road, combi, urban, mixed and winter products, including the GSR225 Combi Road steer axle, which is Euro-6 compliant on all steer applications.

Also on display will be the 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, Sales and Marketing Director at Giti Tire UK, said, “The company has an ongoing product development programme for GT Radial, so every 12 months we have new and next generation tyres making their debuts at every show we attend.

“With every new tyre we see a marked increase in quality, as proven by research and development criteria and on-the-road trials prior to launch. This objective forms the basis of the brand’s goal, to produce premium quality tyres at mid-market prices.”
