GT Radial Champiro UHP1 Tire Review & Rating

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

Overall Thoughts

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.
