“GATS All Folks”


Or maybe more appropriately “All GATS Folks” as The Great American Trucking Show attracted an estimated 42,000 attendees to the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas, Texas, on Aug. 23-25, 2014.

Reportedly the nation’s second largest trucking trade show, GATS offered attendees a wide variety of industry exhibitors and informational sessions. Whether your purpose was to find a job, attend a free educational seminar, get a complimentary driver health screening, acquire the latest information from top industry suppliers or simply admire the custom rigs in the Pride & Polish Truck Beauty competition, GATS was the place to be for trucking professionals.

GT Radial was right in the thick of things with an 18’ X 18’ exhibitor booth on the main show floor. On display were six GT Radial tire designs specializing in line haul, regional and mixed service applications, as well as the debut of a forged aluminum wheel offering from our family brand member Seyen Wheel.

The OEM equipment in this year’s show had a Texas oil field heavy-duty work truck concentration and flavor. Nine OEM trailer manufacturers featured 21 heavy-duty, purpose- oriented working pieces.

“With shale oil being as big as Texas itself the past five years, our oil field tire value package combination of the GT Radial GT876 wide base tire for heavy steer axles and our rugged and durable deep tread drive tire workhorse, the GDM635, certainly commanded their fair share of attention,” said Patrick Gunn, Director of Sales and Marketing of Commercial Tires for Giti Tire (USA) Ltd. “It was great renewing old acquaintances while cultivating new relationships and contacts. Thank you to all who dropped by for a visit."
