GT Radial

The GT Radial GDL617FS is a drive tire designed to provide improved traction, irregular wear resistance and fuel efficiency for long-haul applications.

The GDL617FS features a wider tread and a compound design that is made for higher mileage. The tire’s platform and supplementary groove help prevent stone retention and a deeper zigzag sipe provides good traction while resisting irregular wear.

The tire was designed by Giti North American Technical Center and makes use of several Giti technologies including:

  • Equal Force Casing: A specially designed carcass technology that enables an optimal tire footprint and equal force distribution for better control and regular tread wear.
  • 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: 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 GDL617FS is available in the 11R22.5, 295/75R22.5, 11R24.5 and 285/75R24.5 sizes. It is backed by a 72-month limited warranty and a limited two-retread casing warranty.
