Giti Tire USA is offering the GT Radial GDM635 on-/off-highway drive tire in North America to provide mixed service fleets consistent traction, effective protection against stones and long tread wear.

Featuring a full inch (32/32nds) of tread rubber for durability and wear, the GT Radial GDM635 is available in size 11R24.5. It is backed by a six-year limited warranty.

“We’re excited to kick off the year with the introduction of an outstanding new drive tire for on-/off-highway applications,” says Justin Wright, commercial product marketing manager. “The GDM635’s deep lug tread design is one of the tire’s strongest selling points, offering a full inch of rubber to get the job done.”

Wright says the new deep-tread drive tire is perfectly suited for a variety of mixed service fleet operations, including logging, mining and oil field services.

The GT Radial GDM635’s aggressive independent block design is optimized to provide consistent traction, and the tread’s V-shaped grooves with stone ejectors offer effective protection against stone retention and drilling, the company says.

The tire has been engineered with four belts which provide effective casing protection for optimum durability and retreadability. It has a special cut/chip tread compound to resist cutting, chipping, chunking and tearing in harsh off-highway environments.

Giti Tire USA is the sales and marketing operation in North America for Giti Tire Pte. Ltd. For more information, visit www.gtradialtrucktires.com.
