Giti unveils line haul trailer tire for North America

The GT Radial GTL922 FS premium line haul trailer tire, designed for the North American market, is joining the comprehensive lineup of GT Radial commercial tires. This next generation, SmartWay-verified line haul trailer tire features a four straight groove design for enhanced driving stability and effective water flow, the tire maker said. 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 is the result of extensive research and development efforts by our team at the Giti Tire R&D Center (North America) Inc. in Ohio,” said Patrick Gunn, director of sales and marketing, commercial tire, for Giti Tire (USA) Ltd., which markets and sells GT Radial commercial tires in North America. “We’re excited to offer this next generation line haul trailer tire to North American fleets and owner operators.”

The GTL922 FS also benefits from three advanced Giti technologies, according to the company:

  • Equal Force Casing 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, 295/75R22.5, 11R24.5 and 285/75R24.5 (all 14-ply).
