Giti Tire Unveils Genesis as New Name for UK Retread Programme

As part of its European truck and bus rebrand project, Giti Tire has announced that its UK retread programme has been renamed Giti Genesis. Originally known as GT REE-Tread, the next-generation products remain a high-quality, hot cure bead-to-bead retread which are only manufactured using Giti casings in partnership with a leading UK-based operation.

Giti Genesis is available in two patterns: the GDR690 regional drive axle tyre is available in 295/80R22.5, 315/70R22.5 and 315/80R22.5; the GTR990 regional trailer tyre is offered in size 385/65R22.5.

Tony McHugh, TBR Sales and Marketing Director UK at Giti Tire, said: “Since we launched our first retread tyre in 2012 we have proven that the programme delivers tangible benefits to operators who want the lowest price-per-kilometre without sacrificing reliability and safety. By utilising our casings’ proven integrity and retreadability, both patterns offer excellent traction, optimal mileage performance and resistance to damage and impacts which has put them very much in demand.

“Giti Genesis tyres are being prepared for market with our exceptional new partner, they remain an integral element of our full-service offering and we very much look forward to their full debut at the CV Show 2017 alongside our new Giti portfolio.”
