U.K. Mixed Operations Fleet Finds Great Overall Performance with Giti Tire
Bartrums Warehousing and Distribution operates over 400 tractor units and trailers, specializing in haulage, warehousing, and distribution for blue chip companies requiring full and part load distribution throughout the UK.
Following a two year tire testing program in which various GT Radial patterns were subjected to comparative testing across different vehicle types and wheel positions, the performance results approved the brand as a main supplier to the entire fleet. Since then, the Suffolk-based transport company has taken delivery of 10 Wilcox 70 cubic yard plank sided tipping trailers, all ordered with GT Radial GT876 tires as original equipment.
The GT Radial GT876 is a mixed service, M+S marked tire for steer and trailer axle positions. Designed for on and off road applications with higher loads, a wide base and extra deep tread design with anti-cut compound and stone ejectors minimizes tread tearing and casing damage, while providing exceptional traction.

This wide base all position design provides exceptional performance in on/off highway application.
“We entered into a stringent tire test program with GT Radial to benchmark the product range against premium brands, and the overall performance and price per kilometer from the mid-tier range was exceptional. Over the last two years, the day-to-day operations and savings have completely justified our decision, and as such we are more than happy to request the GT876 as OE for our new Wilcox trailer fleet.”David Reid
