John Estes, plant manager of Southern Tire Mart in Lubbock, TX, has seen his share of casings over the past 20 years -- and he considers GT Radial to be among the best in the market today.
“For years, GT Radial truck tire casings have demonstrated to be very durable, dependable and retreadable. Their level of rejection and scrap is much lower than average and the level of completion is way above the leading brands," he says. "We definitely find the GT Radial casings among some of the best in the market today."
