The GAM835 is available in three sizes: 11R22.5 16 ply, 11R24.5 16 ply, and 315/80R22.5 20 ply (rated load 10,200 lbs. singles).
“This has been one of the most aggressive years ever for our company introducing new GT Radial commercial tires in North America — all resulting from valuable input from fleets and excellent research, design and testing by the Giti North American Technical Center,” 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.
“These two new tires were developed specifically for North American fleets and roads. We expect market acceptance to be very strong once these tires get in use and prove their performance.”
Both new products are backed by the company's 72-month warranty from the date of manufacture.
The tire maker said the new tires incorporate three technologies developed by the Giti R&D centers, including:
- The company's Equal Force Carcass Technology which enables an optimum tire footprint and equal force distribution, resulting in better control and regular tread wear. When the tread is wider, wearing volume and the ground contact area are increased leading to better wear, performance, fuel efficiency and high mileage. The pressure across the larger contact patch is distributed more evenly.
- Giti's Duo Filler Technology provides thicker, stronger cushion rubber in the bead area with a combination of two bead fillers: the hard bead filler is stiff for better durability and the soft bead filler helps provide a more comfortable ride and smoother handling.
- Cap & Base Tread Design that includes a cap layer providing wear resistant qualities and the base rubber between the top layer and the casing which includes a special, cooler running formulation that insulates the casing from heat buildup.
