GT Radial Champiro SX2 Tire Review & Rating
As a high performance summer tire from GT Radial, Champiro SX2 tires are built for all types of sports cars, coupes and sedans. The tread is designed to provide exceptional traction and cornering grip on dry or wet pavement, as well as a smooth ride.
With extra wide shoulder blocks that help to increase cornering performance and stability on the road, the tires also come with a wide center rib for enhanced traction and steering response on dry and wet road surfaces. It also helps deliver shorter braking distances, which this model does fairly well.
An aggressive tread design with a silica compound also adds to the high level of grip on the road while wide circumferential grooves get rid of water quickly to avoid hydroplaning in wet conditions.
The tires also come with a gradient design that spreads heat evenly around the tire and ensures that they have a longer lifespan with more consistent performance. GT Radial offers sizes ranging from 15 to 18 inches on the SX2 to go with a W-speed rating.
