A record number of visitors flocked to the Giti Tyre stand at this year’s CV Show, with the launch of the GT Radial GDR638 drawing plenty of interest.
Giti’s new drive axle tyre is designed for medium-sized trucks and buses. Available initially in 245/70R17.5 and 235/75R17.5 sizes, the firm plans to add seven further 17.5″ and 19.5″ sizes before the end of the year.
Also making its debut was the GSW226 high-traction steer axle tyre, the firm’s first specific ‘winter’ tyre with all-season capabilities. Overall, 22 GT Radial patterns were on display with its corporate branding, used alongside GT Radial for the first time to raise brand awareness.
Tony McHugh, TBR Sales and Marketing Director UK at Giti Tyre, said, “Visitors were very interested in the new look. When you explain that Giti is one of the top 10 largest tyre companies in the world, and fourth in radial truck tyre production, they immediately understand the status it brings to the GT Radial brand.”
