Giti debuts in Chinese domestic heavy truck market on Mercedes-Benz Actros

The Mercedes-Benz Actros, the brand’s first heavy truck, recently rolled off the production line at Daimler’s Automobile Plant in Beijing, equipped with Giti’s new GAR206 and GDR207 tyres.

It is the first time these new tyres from Giti are being used in China’s domestic heavy truck market.

Equipped on the Actros in size 315/40R22.5, the tyres benefit from an A-grade in rolling resistance, verified through road tests by Giti on a large domestic fleet with standard load conditions.

Compared with other similar tyres on the market, the GAR206 and GDR207 consumed 3.6 per cent less fuel while delivering “excellent” wear resistance and performance, according to Giti.

The tyres also demonstrated their capabilities to Daimler in multiple rounds of objective tests, such as wet-grip braking, handling stability and reliability.

The Mercedes-Benz Actros trucks fitted with Giti GAR206 and GDR207 tyres are expected to reach customers in November 2022.
