A New GT Radial Long Haul Drive Tire

Aug. 13, 2015

North American fleets and owner operators have a new long haul drive tire option, the GT Radial GDL617FS. Manufacturer Giti Tire Group says the tire offers excellent traction, irregular wear resistance and fuel efficiency for long haul usage. It features a wider tread and unique compound design for higher mileage. The tire's central platform and supplementary groove help prevent stone retention. A deeper transversal and dimensional zigzag siping provide good traction and anti-irregular wear. It's available in the popular 11R22.5, 295/75R22.5, 11R24.5 and 285/75R24.5 sizes, and is backed by a 72-month limited warranty and limited two-retread casing warranty.
