Giti brings line haul trailer tire to North America
The GT Radial GTL922 FS line haul trailer tire, designed for the North American market, is joining the lineup of GT Radial commercial tires offered by Giti Tire (USA) Ltd.
This next generation, SmartWay-verified line haul trailer tire features a four straight groove design for enhanced driving stability and effective water flow. Giti says aggressive sipes and microsipes on the ribs provide superior wet grip performance, while a diamond shaped groove bottom design prevents stone retention and casing damage.
The GTL922 FS also benefits from three advanced Giti technologies:
Equal Force Casing (EFC) is a specially designed casing technology that enables an optimal tire footprint and equal force distribution for better control and regular tread wear.
With the Giti Cap Base Design, the cap layer provides wear resistant qualities while the base rubber between the top layer and the casing includes a special cooler running formulation that insulates the casing from heat build up.
Duo Filler Technology is a combination of two bead fillers – hard and soft. The soft bead filler helps provide a more comfortable ride and smoother handling, while the hard bead filler is stiffer for better durability.
The GT Radial GTL922 FS is available in four sizes: 11R22.5, 11R24.5, and two with fuel-saving specifications: 295/75R22.5 and 285/75R24.5. All sizes are 14 ply.
“The GTL922 FS is the result of extensive research and development efforts by our team at the Giti Tire R&D Center (North America) Inc. in Ohio,” says Patrick Gunn, director of sales and marketing for commercial tires for Giti Tire (USA) Ltd. “We’re excited to offer this next generation line haul trailer tire to North American fleets and owner operators.”
