New long-haul trailer tire from GT Radial offers high mileage

LinkedIn +

GT Radial’s long-haul portfolio has been expanded with the launch of the GTL919, a new trailer pattern available in 19.5 and 22.5in sizes. The GTL919 will also be available in a 17.5in size in 2016.

A dedicated new compound formula was developed for this tire and an extra deep optimized tread pattern and wide shoulder ribs ensure regular wear as well as a reduction in fuel consumption and increased mileage potential. Additional upper sidewall protection provides enhanced resistance to cuts and tearing, especially from curbing damage.

Tony McHugh, TBR sales and marketing director, UK, at Giti Tire, said, “Each new tire in the GT Radial portfolio heightens our overall product offering, as our ever-improving manufacturing technologies and research and development capabilities deliver the products needed to maintain a strong mid-tier offering.

“The GTL919 continues this evolvement, [and]our field tests show the excellent mileage potential and fuel savings that can be achieved, with every company involved in the program citing excellent all-round performance and 100% satisfaction. This tire will be a mainstay of our long haul offering.”
