New sizes for GT boots

GT Radial has launched two new sizes of its GAR820 regional all-position pattern tyre. Initially available in 215/75R17.5, the brand has added 205/75R17.5 and 225/75R17.5, with 235/75R17.5 and 245/70R17.5 currently in development and due for release later in the year The GAR820 has been specifically designed to respond to the fast development of modern medium-sized trucks’ increased requirements for comfort, low noise, good wet grip and handling in addition to first-rate wear-out performances. The tyre is M&S marked, indicating boosted all-season traction. Peter Foulkes, marketing director Europe – commercial tires at Giti Tire, manufacturer of GT Radial, said: “The new sizes have been in demand since the initial tyre was commercially launched in the latter half of 2012, and we expect the uptake to be quick and strong as we continue to establish ourselves at the top of the mid-tier range tyre sector.”
