Giti Introduces GT Radial Maxtour LX in 42 Sizes

March 18, 2019

The new GT Radial Maxtour LX grand touring tire is available in 42 sizes for 15- to 20-inch rims. The sizes cover fitments for the top 20 passenger and crossover vehicles sold in the U.S.

The majority of the size offering is produced at the Giti Tire (USA) Ltd. manufacturing plant in Chester County, S.C.

Giti says the all-season Maxtour LX is being sold by independent tire dealers across the U.S. and Canada and will be available to consumers by the week of April 1.

“The Maxtour LX is a world-class touring tire,” says Tim Fulton, CEO of Giti North America. “Backed by an industry-leading warranty, we believe our dealers across North America will have success selling it, and consumers will appreciate its performance and value.”

The new GT Radial tire offers a 70,000-mile limited tread wear warranty, 24-hour roadside assistance, and road hazard warranty.

Giti says advanced harmonically-optimized pitch sequencing is utilized in the Maxtour LX to reduce road noise, while a high modulus body ply absorbs road impacts to deliver premium ride comfort.

In addition, the Maxtour LX has:

  • An asymmetric tread pattern tuned for optimal all season performance;
  • Full depth sipes that provide grip throughout the life of the tire;
  • Stiff outer tread blocks for precise vehicle handling and steering response;
  • Additional shoulder channels to aid in water evacuation; and
  • An independent shoulder groove that improves vehicle handling.

Target vehicles include: Honda Accord and CRV, Toyota Camry, Nissan Rogue, Ford Escape, and Chevrolet Traverse.

Giti says the new Maxtour LX, combined with the Maxtour All Season, provide 97% volume coverage of the top 20 all season replacement tire sizes in the US.
