Golden Tyre GT516KX Gummy and KE
Goldern tyre have released the GT516 KX to replace the 216X and the GT516 KE to replace the 216HBN. The KX and KE are similar except the tread on the KX is a very soft gummy compound. The KE is more normal. Updates include
the latest generation of carcass, tread design and rubber compound packaged together. These tyres have evolved
from the popular GT216X and 216HBN but features key improvements. One is the new knob design were the lateral
spacing has been adjusted to add stability in high speed corners and braking during corner entry. The centre
knobs have been tweaked in size and shape which gives added traction in straight line acceleration and braking.
The carcass weight has been kept at the absolute minimum while still maintaining durability and adding stability
in high speed sections of track. Both are DOT tyres. Not recommended for use with the Tubliss system, popular
for mousse users. For matching front use 216AA.
