GT Radial Champiro Touring A/S Tire Review & Rating
Built for all-season traction, a smoother ride and longer life, the GT Radial Champiro Touring A/S also features a lower budget-friendly price. GITI has designed the Touring AS for drivers of all types of coupes, sedans, minivans and smaller crossovers.
A silica-enhanced tread compound and symmetric tread pattern sports larger shoulder blocks that increase stiffness for improved handling and cornering performance on dry or wet pavement.
Four circumferential grooves combined with the added silica in the tread compound help this model deliver extra grip on wet road surfaces, while also reducing the risks of hydroplaning. The additional biting edges that the full-depth sipes provide, help with traction on light snow covered surfaces. However, this is an all-season tire and winter performance in deeper snow and ice is not the best.
GT Radial has added optimized variable pitch tread blocks that are designed to lower the road noise and provide a quieter ride, which is a plus for this tire.
The Touring A/S includes a built-in rim protector to aid in protecting your wheels from curb damage, which is a nice added feature. Sizes ranging from 14-18 inches are available, and all sizes feature a T, H or V-speed rating. A 60K mile tread warranty is included on all sizes.
- Reliable dry/wet traction
- Responsive handling and cornering stability
- Smooth quiet ride
- Winter traction in deep snow and ice
The Touring A/S from GT Radial offers drivers basic touring all-season performance that is comparable to tires like the Arizonian Silver Edition III, Cooper CS3 Touring and several others. Expect to find dependable dry and wet traction with a smooth and quiet ride.
One area where you may encounter issues is with this tires’ grip in deep snow and on ice or hard-pack. Yes, the added sipes help with traction in 2-3 inches of snow, but when it piles up or turns icy, this tire can struggle. That said, it’s a common problem for most any all-season tire.
Overall, with its lower price and good performance, we feel the Touring A/S is a nice option in basic all-season tires.
