▷ GT Radial Tyres
GT Radial Tyres History
GT Radial Company was founded in 1951 in Indonesia. They started out as a small bicycle tire factory and have now grown into the largest tire manufacturer in Southeast Asia. Globally, GT Radial is ranked among the top 10 tire manufacturers.
This brand stands out for its value for money and for a design designed to always respond to consumer demands. Thanks to this, the manufacturer has collaborated with brands such as Pirelli, BF Goodrich or Yokohama. But the one who was finally seduced by GT Radial was Michelin: the French company bought a good part of GT Radial’s shares in 2005.
Currently, they offer a wide range of tires for all types of vehicles, passenger cars, vans, trucks and heavy buses, exported to more than 100 countries around the world.
The most prominent and successful models that it currently has in the touring range are the SportActive and FE1City.
In the case of the SportActive (and SportActive XL), it should be noted that it has been specifically designed for sports vehicles. With these rubbers, maneuverability, durability and especially resistance to hydroplaning are considerably increased. It is manufactured at Giti’s R&D centre in Hannover, Germany and, in the construction of the carcass, uses a technology that guarantees optimal contact of the tire on the road, thus achieving immediate grip and wear of the homogeneous tread throughout its life. For this, work has been done on distributing the pressure within the tire footprint and increasing the balance in the rigidity of the casings.
As for the FE1 City, it is a model designed for urban use and available in 13 to 16-inch wheels and with H, T and V speed indices. This tyre model has an updated tread compound, which provides exceptional mileage and great safety on all surfaces and more so on wet surfaces”, according to GT Radial. He also adds that “the construction of the carcass has considerably reduced the weight of the tire and has optimized the distribution of pressure, which considerably lengthens its useful life”.
