ERJ staff report (DS)
Birmingham, UK - GiTi has introduced its REE Tread branded retread range for truck tyres. The company said the GT REE Tread is a high quality, hot cure bead-to-bead retread built on GT Radial casings and designed to both lower costs for operators and reduce the environmental impact of tyres.
Peter Foulkes, Marketing Manager Europe - Truck and Bus at GT Radial, said: â€œThis is our first commercial vehicle retread tyre and we believe that it has the potential to make a real impact in the market. It offers definite cost and environmental advantages along with excellent overall performance.â€
GT estimates that a recycled tyre saves 68 litres of oil, 44 kilograms of rubber and 88 kilograms of COÂ² across the life of the product. The REE Tread comes in a regional trailer pattern and is available in 385/65R22.5 sizing.
