A new on/off-highway drive tire from GT Radial offers mixed service fleets long tread wear and consistent traction, the company said.

The GT Radial GDM635 tire features a full inch (32/32nds) of tread rubber for durability and wear. It is available in the 11R24.5 size and backed by the GT Radial six-year limited warranty.

“We’re excited to kick off the year with the introduction of an outstanding new drive tire for on/off highway applications,” said Justin Wright, commercial product marketing manager for Giti Tire USA, which markets and sells GT Radial tires in North America. “The GDM635’s deep lug tread design is one of the tire’s strongest selling points, offering a full inch of rubber to get the job done.”

According to the company, the tire’s aggressive independent block design is optimized to provide consistent traction, and the tread’s v-shaped grooves with stone ejectors offer effective protection against stone retention and drilling. The tire has been engineered with four belts which provide effective casing protection for outstanding durability and retreadability.  It has a special cut/chip tread compound to resist cutting, chipping, chunking and tearing in harsh off-highway environments.
