May 12, 2015 – Giti Tire is set to officially announce the soft launching of its Giti brand commercial tire products in the ASEAN region at the Malaysia International Bus, Truck, and Components Expo (MIBTC) Mines International Exhibition Centre, Jalan Dulang, Mines Wellness City, Seri Kembangan on May 14, 2015.
At the exhibition, Giti Tire have a large booth display (situated at M30), where commercial vehicle tire products can be viewed. Director of International Sales & Marketing for Commercial Tires, Mr. Chris Bloor, is the VIP presenter for “The Essential Elements for Excellent Tire Performance & Cost Management” on May 15, 11am. In addition, Giti introduced three new products for the first time in the ASEAN market.
Two versatile combi-road tires, GAL836 and GDL636 have been developed for a wide range of highway and regional applications, from long and straight highways, to narrow winding national and country roads. Both tread compounds are designed to navigate both smooth and rough road surface with ease, resist irregular wear, and deliver long mileage. The patterns will be available initially in 11R22.5, 12R22.5, 295/80R22.5, and 315/80R22.5, with additional sizes currently in development.
In addition to the products noted above the newly re-designed GT867 urban use commercial vehicle tire will be exhibited. Using a new highly abrasion resistant tread compound, large improvements to wear life have been achieved. This star product is speciﬁcally designed for stop-and-go urban driving conditions with frequent speed changes and turns. It features an extra-reinforced sidewall protector to ensure maximum resistance to curbing and impact damage.
Also on display at the exhibition will be the GAR850 regional all position tire. This pattern has been created in response to the fast development of modern medium sized trucks, and increased requirements for comfort, wet and dry handling, and excellent wear resistance. Available initially in 225/80R17.5, 245/70R19.5 and 11R22.5 sizes, the tire can be used in both steer and drive positions on 4x2 and 6x4 configurations.
