Giti Expands Regional Mixed Service Portfolio

Giti Tire
The Giti GAM837 tyre.
Giti Tire has expanded its regional mixed service portfolio with the launch of two new tyres for specific applications. Available in 295/80R22.5 and 315/70R22.5, the Giti GAM837 all-position sizes have been specially selected for the growing number of on/off road OE bulk haulage delivery vehicles which later need aftermarket replacements.

The Giti GAM851 is a wide base steer and trailer design which provides strong performance in rough terrain applications, such as construction sites. Initially available in 385/65R22.5 with a load index of 160 (158), further sizes will be released throughout 2017 and 2018. It supersedes the popular GT Radial GT876.

Both tyres feature a new advanced anti-cut and chip compound providing high resistance against tearing and casing damage on aggressive surfaces, with tread designs ensuring good self-cleaning properties. They are also three-peak mountain snowflake (3PMSF) certified, confirming their all-season performance credentials.

Tony McHugh, TBR Sales and Marketing Director UK at Giti Tire, said: “Our extensive market research looks at all customers, vehicle types and applications, and when we see a pattern emerging and a clear future demand we will always be quick to bring a quality tyre to the respective sector.”

Regarding the new tyres, McHugh added; “The new GAM837 and GAM851 are examples of this commitment to stay abreast of the market, both being launched for specific on/off road applications in sizes and with certifications which are currently quite scarce in the aftermarket.”
