The GT Radial Champiro VP1 is engineered to provide all-season
driving performance to go with an extremely budget-friendly price. Designed for drivers of all types of coupes,
sedans, minivans, and even smaller SUV's, the VP1 offers an advanced tread technology and the versatility for
everyday driving needs.
An all-season advanced rubber tread compound is designed to extend the life of the
tread, while providing increased dry and wet traction. It also features a lower rolling resistance, which enhances
fuel efficiency and lowers fuel costs over time. The tire's shoulder blocks and lateral grooves quicken steering
response and add more feel on dry or wet pavement.
The tire's optimized tread block design combines with four wide circumferential
grooves and integral lateral grooves to expel water from under the tire and reduce the risk of hydroplaning. Added
sipes around the tread provide biting edges for better grip on wet or snow covered roads.
GITI Tires utilizes their road noise cancelling technology on this tire, which
virtually eliminates outside noise, making for a more comfortable ride. Inside the tire you will find steel belted
construction for added strength and durability, as well as increased ride quality and a longer treadlife. The VP1
comes with a 40,000 mile tread guarantee and is available in a wide variety of 14-16 inch sizes.
Very good dry and wet traction
Lower rolling resistance for added fuel efficiency
Ride is comfortable and quiet
40,000 mile warranty
Excellent value for the low cost
Softer sidewall reduces cornering for more spirited drivers
The VP1 is one of our favorite cheap tires for all-season use. But just because
the tires are affordable doesn't mean they do not perform well. You can expect predictable performance on both dry
and wet road surfaces.
Ride comfort is very good, but it does come at the expense of higher cornering
power due to the softer sidewall. That said, this tire is not designed to be a high performance sports tire. For
drivers looking for an everyday "daily commuting" type of tire that will also save you a lot of extra cash, this GT
Radial tire is a nice choice.
The VP1 comes with a 40,000 mile 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.
