GT Radial SportActive 2 SUV is an Ultra-High Performance summer tire, meant to strengthen the position of its manufacturer on the European market. This model offers accurate steering response, stable wet and dry traction, long tread life, and, of course, pleasure from driving a powerful car with a high center of gravity. The GT Radial SportActive 2 SUV came to replace the 2017 model SportActive SUV. This model was designed by Giti Tire’s European Research & Development Centre in Hannover with testing at the company’s MIRA facility in the UK as well as in Papenburg, Germany, and IDIADA test track in Spain. The continuous central rib with diagonal notches improves the tire’s road holding ability and contributes to reducing dry braking distances. Special micro-sipes with a suction effect, located on one of the ribs of the central section, speed up the cleansing of the contact patch from water, thereby increasing the driving safety in rainy weather. The optimized tread block design and the multistep block arrangement dampen the road noise and increase the GT Radial SportActive 2 SUV ride smoothness. The rigid outer tread blocks increase the accuracy and crispness of steering response. The ability of the tread to cleanse itself quickly and efficiently from water is ensured by wide circumferential grooves that play the key part in combating the hydroplaning effect. Depending on the width of the tread, the tire has 4 or 5 circumferential grooves (5 grooves for the tires with the tread width over 265mm). Extra wet traction is ensured by silica-rich compound that maintains its performance in a wide range of temperatures. It also prevents overheating of the tread during high-speed driving, thus extending tread life. The GT Radial SportActive 2 SUV wet traction in accordance with the classification adopted in Europe belongs to class A, or at least such information is given on the company’s European website.
The renewed SportActive line also includes the GT Radial SportActive 2 tire, which can be fitted on a wide variety of passenger cars, such VW Golf and Passat, Ford Focus, Mercedes C and E class, BMW 3 series, and Audi A6.
