The GT Radial GTL922 is a line haul trailer tire designed for better driving stability and wet grip performance.
The tire is SmartWay verified and features a four straight groove design for driving stability and effective water flow. The GTL922 has aggressive sipes and microsipes on the ribs to provide better grip in wet conditions and a diamond shaped groove bottom design prevents stone retention and casing damage.
The GTL922 also incorporates several technologies developed by the Giti Tire R&D Center in Ohio. One is called Equal Force Casing which is designed for optimal tire footprint and equal force distribution for better control and regular tread wear.
The tire has Giti Cap Base Design that gives the cap layer wear-resistant qualities. The base rubber between the top layer and casing includes a special cooler-running formulation to insulate the casing from heat buildup.
Lastly, the tire features Duo Filler Technology which 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 FTL922 FS is available in four sizes: 11R22.5, 11R24.5 and the fuel saving specifications 295/75R22.5, and 285/75R24.5.
“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. “We’re excited to offer this next generation line haul trailer tire to North American fleets and owner operators.”
