The Champiro UHP1 from GT Radial is designed as an ultra-high
performance tire for summer driving use. Engineered for drivers of sport coupes and luxury sedans, the UHP1 is all
about delivering more powerful cornering, faster braking and increased traction on wet or dry pavement.
A high performance silica tread compound with larger shoulder blocks provides
solid dry or wet traction. It also enhances cornering abilities that you would normally expect to find only on
tires costing much more. Reviews from drivers speak highly of how this tire grips the corners.
The tire's continuous center rib makes the steering more responsive and crisp,
while also increasing straight line stability throughout the speed range. Four circumferential grooves and numerous
lateral grooves evacuate water from under the tread and reduce the risk of hydroplaning.
An optimized tread pitch sequence virtually eliminates road noise and adds more
driving comfort in town or out on the open highway. Inside the tire you will find steel belted construction that
adds strength and durability, as well as promoting more even tread wear. The UHP1 is available in a wide range of
sizes and V or W-speed ratings.
Excellent dry and wet traction and braking
Cornering grip is outstanding
Exceptional value and performance for a very low price
Not for driving when temps drop below 40 degrees
We really like the high performance UHP1 for many different reasons, most notably
due to its outstanding grip in the corners, as well as its traction and braking on dry or wet pavement. The tire
provides excellent steering response overall feel. Perhaps the best part is the cheap price. Comparable tires from
Michelin or Bridgestone are twice the price if not more in some cases. Overall, expect to find good performance for
a great price.
The UHP1 comes with a limited tread warranty. Tire uniformity is guaranteed for
the first 2/32 inch of wear. Materials and workmanship are warranted for 5-years include free replacement during
the first 2/32 inch of wear. A prorated amount is given for the remaining time period or until the tire reaches the
final 2/32 inch of tread depth.
