Praised GT Radial SportActive 2 Introduces 28 Additional Sizes

The GT Radial SportActive 2 range has been enlarged by the introduction of 28 additional sizes.

Now comprising 42 passenger car and SUV sizes in total, rims range from 16-21”, section widths from 195-295, series sizes from 35-55 and speed indices from V-Y.

Certain vehicle specific tyres will carry an SUV marking on the sidewall to highlight their specialisation.

Across all sizes the GT Radial SportActive 2 has maintained its A label for wet grip with B-D for rolling resistance. The noise level also remains at 69db.

Fabio Pecci-Boriani, Senior Product Manager PCR, SUV, Light Truck for Giti Tire (Europe), said: “The GT Radial SportActive 2 is rightly receiving praise for it’s wet and dry performance, and our customers are delighted.

“Add the introduction of the new sizes and the tyre now covers 93.8% of the top 80 most demanded summer UHP sizes across Europe, which is fantastic market reach.

“We cannot be any happier with overall product offering.”

Launched at the start of last year, the GT Radial SportActive 2 delivered a 15% improvement in wet braking and 10% enhancement in wet handling and aquaplaning resistance against the previous model.

The performance advancements, all recorded against the original GT Radial SportActive, also show a 5% boost in mileage potential, dependent upon driving characteristics.

The tyre was designed and engineered at Giti Tire’s European Research & Development Centre in Hannover, Germany, where the project scope was to deliver precision control with superb wet and dry grip, long lasting mileage and a confident, fun driving experience.
