A European tyre

Although from Singapore, tyre manufacturer Giti Tire develops all of its products for the European market locally. The GitiPremium SUV PX1 tyre was designed and manufactured at Giti Tire’s Research & Development Centre in Hannover, Germany. It was tested at various test sites such as the “MIRA” (Motor Industry Research Association) testing ground in the UK, the Idiaida test track in Spain and the Papenburg track in Germany.

The different tests conducted by Giti Tire have allowed the GitiPremium SUV PX1 to achieve a high level of performance. According to the tyre manufacturer, these tests have demonstrated a high level of ride comfort, good traction on wet and dry roads and an excellent wear resistance.

Continuing its original equipment strategy, Giti Tire says further OE approvals will be announced during the year.
