GITI prepares to launch Champiro 228
A new all-season passenger tire from GITI Tire (USA) Ltd., the Champiro 228, will be available in the United States in July. The tire will carry a V speed rating, say GITI officials.
"Initially we'll have 15 sizes," says Vic DeIorio, executive vice president, sales and business development, for GITI.
The tire's size range will eventually expand to encompass 14-, 15-, 16-, and 17-inch sizes, "and a few 18-inch sizes."
The Champiro 228 contains an "eco-friendly" compound for low rolling resistance, a wide center rib, a "special block and sipe design" for noise reduction, and other features.
