Four wide circumferential grooves help evacuate water quickly, decreasing the chance of hydroplaning. Full-depth sipes enhance traction on dry, wet, and light snow road surfaces, and optimized variable-pitch tread blocks reduce road noise for an enjoyable riding experience.

All-Season Traction

The Champiro Touring AS is an all-season touring tire for passenger cars and CUVs that offers the ideal balance of handling, traction, and quiet comfort. The tire features a ribbed tread pattern with wide circumferential grooves for superior wet, dry, and winter road-gripping abilities by creating multiple biting edges that maintain firm contact with the road surface while increasing hydroplaning resistance and traction. Furthermore, variable pitch tread block design reduces road noise for an enjoyable ride experience as well as protecting rims against curb damage.

This premium tire offers all-season traction, smooth ride quality, and long tread life at an unbeatably competitive price. Backed by a 60,000-mile warranty for added peace of mind. Engineered specifically to meet the demands of sedans, coupes, and minivans of today, Champiro Touring AS delivers precise control with quiet rides at an exceptional value.

Comfortable Ride

The GT Radial Champiro Touring A/S all-season passenger tire provides precise handling and control while offering a quiet, comfortable ride, perfect for everyday driving in any weather condition, and covered by a limited tread wear warranty of 60,000 miles.

The Champiro Touring A/S features a silica-enhanced tread compound to deliver superior road gripping ability in dry, wet, icy, and snowy conditions. Its symmetrical tread design incorporates four wide circumferential grooves and four innovative lateral grooves, which effectively eject water for improved wet weather gripping performance; additionally, they help disperse water beneath the footprint to prevent hydroplaning. Full-depth siping details add extra biting edges for all-season traction improvement, while large shoulder blocks enhance handling and cornering capabilities.

This tread design incorporates a solid center rib that ensures straight-line stability at higher speeds, with wear-resistant shoulders for increased tire life and optimized variable pitch tread blocks to reduce noise emission during driving, creating an enjoyable driving experience.

When tested for wet braking, this tire scored well with an impressive stop distance of just 94 feet from 70mph. Unfortunately, when tested for dry braking, it underperformed compared to its counterparts and required stopping nearly three meters further than its top performers on the test.

The Champiro Touring A/S tire is an economical solution for drivers of modern passenger cars and crossover vehicles who desire essential touring all-season traction, comparable to tires like Laufenn G FIT AS LH41, Nexen N’ Priz AH5, and Starfire Solarus AS. While providing good traction and a comfortable ride experience, its performance may fall slightly short when exposed to wet or snow conditions; nonetheless, it remains an acceptable, affordable, all-season passenger tire option.

Durability

The Champiro Touring AS is an all-season touring tire designed to deliver maximum traction, handling, and performance at a highly reasonable cost. Ideal for modern passenger cars and crossover vehicles alike, its precise control offers quiet comfort, while its 60,000-mile treadwear warranty provides peace of mind over time.

This tire features a symmetric tread design with silica-enhanced compound to maximize traction and tread life, and four wide circumferential grooves help disperse water quickly to increase wet weather road gripping ability and minimize hydroplaning risks. Furthermore, full-depth sipes add additional biting edges for other road-holding forces, even in light snow conditions.

On dry roads, the Champiro Touring AS feels responsive and stable with a smooth ride, boasting low rolling resistance for improved fuel efficiency and reduced road noise. Thanks to its all-season traction rating, it makes an excellent everyday vehicle suitable for spring through fall driving but should not be trusted with deep snow or ice driving conditions.

For added durability, all-season tires feature an inbuilt rim protector to shield them from accidental curb damage and have specially designed sidewalls to reduce road noise while driving.

Champiro Touring AS is one of the best budget all-season tires, providing both traction and comfort all season long. Less expensive than Laufenn G FIT AS LH41, Nexen N’Priz AH5, and Starfire Solarus AS, with similar warranties as each tire, the Champiro Touring AS has all these qualities in one affordable tire package.

GT Radial provides this tire with a 60,000-mile treadwear warranty, making sure it will stand the test of time! Free replacement will occur during its initial 2/32 inch wear before prorated amounts will apply after that until wear reaches its final 2/32 inch threshold.

Value

The Champiro Touring A/S tire is an all-season tire with exceptional handling and control for precise maneuvering as well as quiet comfort during every season. Backed by a limited treadwear warranty covering 60,000 miles, this tire makes an excellent choice for drivers of modern passenger cars and crossover vehicles.

The silica-enhanced rubber compound makes this tire ideal for all-season traction. Wide circumferential grooves help eject water quickly, decreasing hydroplaning chances, while full-depth sipes ensure year-round gripping power. Meanwhile, large shoulder blocks increase the stiffness of the tread pattern for precise handling and cornering at highway speeds.

The tire also boasts a variable pitch tread design to reduce road noise for a quieter, more relaxing drive. When driving forward, its pitch sequence cancels out the noise produced by tires and wheel assemblies for an uninterrupted and comfortable journey.

Although the Champiro Touring A/S delivers in most weather conditions, it does have issues when dealing with deep snow and ice. While its sipes help traction on these surfaces, slippage remains possible on them; this issue is common across all-season tires.
