Giti Tire has announced an expansion to its GT Radial retreading portfolio, and will launch the new tyre at CV Show 2014.
Available to view in hall five, stand C60, the GDR690 GT REE Tread is a drive position regional tyre available in 295/80 and 315/80 sizes, which will be solely manufactured using only GT Radial casings.
An acronym for reliable, economical and environmental, the REE Tread is a high quality, hot cure bead-to-bead retread designed to both lower costs for operators and reduce the environmental impact of tyres.
The move marks the first development of the range since launching the GTR990 REE Tread regional trailer pattern in size 385/65R22.5, and Tony McHugh, Sales and Marketing Director UK at Giti Tire, manufacturer of GT Radial, 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," said McHugh. "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.
