Choosing a tyre seems like an easy thing to do, but in reality, there is more to picking the right one for you than many people realise. You need to think about the weather where you live, for example. If you live in a snowy region or somewhere with temperatures close to or below zero in the winter, you may need winter or all-season tyres. The amount of mileage you do is another consideration, along with budget. When buying tyres, look at the EU labels to see how efficient they are with regards to noise, fuel efficiency and wet grip.
A top tyre for all-round comfort is the GT Radial Champiro FE1 car tyre, whose benefits include:
- improved performance in wet conditions
- the ability to penetrate water film and evacuate water between the tyre and the road
- great wet grip performance
- great overall performance
Its specialist features include wide, long grooves, which help performance on wet or greasy roads, a special tread compound which reduces heat generation and thus improves roll resistance, a variant pitch arrangement of tread, to cut down on noise emissions, and a new profile design to provide a quiet and comfortable ride.
The tyre has wide longitudinal grooves and an advanced tread compound. It is a good choice for drivers looking for comfort, high performance and low noise. The tyre comes with rim sizes of 15-17, with an aspect ratio of 50-65mm and a section width of 175-225. It is also available in an impressive 26 different tyre sizes.
This variety has positioned the GT Radial Champiro FE1 as a top, all-round premium passenger car tyre. It is aimed mostly at the performance C and D segment vehicles, including bestsellers like the VW Golf and Peugeot 308. It is an increasingly popular choice for the mid-range market, for drivers who are looking for safety, a quiet and smooth ride, fuel savings and excellent mileage. The Champiro FE1 was specifically developed to have a long lifetime. It sits in the GT Radial portfolio mix, as the leading comfort passenger tyre.
It is also part of the GT Radial range, with new tyres in this range being developed in conjunction with top universities and research institutions. These tyres also meet all EU directives, regulations and standards. GT Radial is part of Giti Tire, one of the biggest tyre companies in the world. It was founded in 1993, with its European R&D facilities located in Hannover, Germany, and the MIRA facility in Nuneaton, in England.
