GT Radial Tire Champiro UHP1 Reviews

The GT Radial Tire Champiro UHP1 has strong integrated shoulder blocks that provide improved cornering force and traction with high silica content formula which improves wet and dry handling. Four deep and wide circumferential grooves will provide efficient water dispersion and wet driving performance. The center rib design delivers linear stability and crisp steering response, together with optimized pitch variance tread design will reduce noise lever for a quieter ride. All of the introduction of this type of tire can speak less compared with the customer reviews, so next, let’s take a look at the reviews about this radial tire.

Driving on mostly motorways for 16,000 spirited miles

I fitted a set of GT Radial UHP1 to my Audi A7 after the original Goodyear had come off at 18,000 miles. To be honest I didn't really notice any difference to the Goodyear in terms of wet & dry grip. They gave me 16,000 miles which was OK considering the Goodyear done 18 and the GT Radial Tire Champiro UHP1 were about 70% of the price.

 

Driving on mostly town for 6,000 average miles

I bought these GT Radial Tire Champiro UHP1 as a mid price tire as I was fed up paying for top mark prices i.e Continental etc.

At first the tires seemed OK but after 6,000 miles all four tires are cracked and perished around all the tread blocks.

They look like ten year old tires which is totally unacceptable for tires made on the 35th week of 2012 and it is now only the 12th week of 2012

I will never use them again as a work colleague has the same issue with his GT radial Champiro uhp1 tires and he has only had them on for 6 months. It looks like I will have to go back to Continental or Goodyear after all.

 

Driving on mostly motorways for 14,000 average miles

I was initially very impressed with the characteristics of these tires however as the months have gone by they have let me down. There was an increased amount of road noise at first however this was balanced with greater grip especially in the wet compared to my previous tires. The tires where fitted by a main dealer as a mid range option and I read many reviews saying that they handled well and where also durable. This has not been my experience however as the middle band of the tires have worn considerably and are now below 1mm after just 14,000 miles. I noticed they were wearing quickly but feel shocked now I have recently checked them. My car has tire pressure sensors fitted that are accurate and I check this weekly. I have always ran them at manufacturers recommendations. This is an automatic family car that is driven relatively sedately and have been a waste of money having only lasted 8 months and 14000 miles. I shall unfortunately have to buy again and go back to a big name brand.

 

Driving on a combination of roads for 1,000 average miles

Took ages for me to find a decent set of tires on a budget but went for these instead of real cheap ones due to safety in the wet. Had continental sport contacts on the car originally which were superb all round and would love to have had them again so these in comparison don't do too bad considering price. Not had them long enough to comment on wear but for all other areas this GT Radial Tire Champiro UHP1 does the job. Not amazing but you feel safer and more confident than the cheap brands you never heard of. Comments mentioned about the noise is true, they are a bit more noisier than others but you can't have everything if you don't pay for it so I can settle with these purely for the what you get for your money. Very pleased.

 

Driving on a combination of roads for 60,000 average miles

I previously had used 2 sets of the older HPX GT tires, they were very good in all conditions, I recently had a pair of the new UHP1 tires fitted on the front, in most areas they are good. In the recent snow, approx 30-50 mm deep they gave very little traction, the worst issue with them is that they are very sensitive to changes in road camber something the older HPX tires did not seem as affected by. Not sure I would purchase further GT tires for this application.

 

So, after reading the customer reviews, how do you feel about this GT Radial Tire Champiro UHP1? Still have some doubts? Easy, just buy a set of this type of tire and give it a ride, then you will definitely know how it works.
