GT’s colorful spin on a classic tire

11 12 2018

GT took the classic good looks of the iconic GT tires of the 80s and have updated them with today’s tech to make them suitable for modern-day riding.

Newly christened as the “Heritage LP-V tire”, these 26″ tires have a lower profile than their old school predecessors for a smooth ride and stronger sidewalls for extra durability.

Check out the specs:

  • 26 x 2.2”
  • Non-directional “GT” tread
  • Smooth center block
  • Max Pressure: 60 psi
  • Inflated Width: 2.1”
  • Inflated Diameter: 26.25”
  • Weight: 35.84 oz

That’s one good looking tire (and those tanwalls…so nice).

But wait…there’s more! (note: I’ve been watching too many informercials)

GT brought the heat with these tires…because not only did they make the classic black with tanwall colorway…they’re bringing out a whole grip of colorways!

We’re talking:

  • BlueGT LPV blue
  • RedGT LPV red
  • WhiteGT LPV white
  • PurpleGT LPV purple

Dang, with all these color choices you can really allow your imagination to run wild and let your 80s freestyle freak flag fly.

Definitely stoked on these.

Now, just need to convince GT to make ’em in 24″ versions.

I’m still a sucker for those tanwall tires tho…
