Giti Tire has released details of the six new Giti branded patterns that will be launched at CV Show 2017. On show at stand 4G20 will be the GDR655 combi-road drive in 22.5”, the GTL919 long-haul trailer in 17.5”, 19.5” and 22.5”, the GDR638 regional drive in 17.5” and 19.5”, the GT867 all-position urban in 22.5” and the GAM837 all-position and GAM851 trailer mixed service patterns in 22.5”.

All the tyres, which are either three-peak mountain snowflake (3PMSF) certified or M&S marked, have been selected to support its growing OEM presence throughout Europe or to target specific aftermarket sectors where growth potential has been identified. At the start of March, Giti Tire announced it will use CV Show 2017 to unveil the first phase of its Giti branded truck and bus portfolio, with no less than 20 patterns making their European debut.

Alongside the new product lines visitors will see conversions of existing patterns from GT Radial, many of which have been improved through increased load index, label results or 3PMSF accreditation. Also on display will be the company’s recently rebranded retread programme, named Giti Genesis.

Tony McHugh, TBR Sales and Marketing Director UK at Giti Tire, said: ““The synergies we’ve created by launching one global truck and bus brand will be apparent for all to see, but with the patterns still firmly designed and certified for EU, and with our extensive value-added services, every truck and bus operator will firmly see the benefits of partnering with a manufacturer at the top of the mid-tier.”
