ADAC Rated GitiSynergyH2 Tyre Extends Reach with 30 New Sizes

Having recently been rated ‘Good’ in the independent ADAC 2022 summer tyre test, Giti Tire’s GitiSynergyH2 will now be available to even more motorists with the introduction of 30 new sizes.

One of only six high performance tyres to achieve the acclaimed distinction, ADAC stated ‘The GitiSynergyH2 offers a successful overall package – it secured good ratings in all main criteria and is thus particularly recommended’.

Of the other tyres to achieve a rating ‘good’ all are produced by higher-priced tier one manufacturers.

In addition to the ADAC test, the GitiSynergyH2 has been classed as ‘Highly Recommended’ by the Swiss TCS and Austrian OAMTC automobile clubs.

It means the GitiSynergyH2 is now available in 46 passenger car, CUV and compact SUV sizes, rims range from 14-18”, section widths from 165-235, series sizes from 50-70 and speed indices across T, H, V, W and Y.

The tyre now covers three-quarters of standard and high performance of demand around Europe, and over 94% of the top 80 most required summer sizes.

Fabio Pecci-Boriani, Senior Product Manager PCR, SUV, Light Truck for Giti Tire (Europe), said: “The GitiSynergyH2was unveiled when it secured a number of OE fitments with the VW Group as our first European A/A labelled tyre, and since its aftermarket launch demand has been high.

“To add the ADAC ‘good’ rating to its list of achievements is another cause for celebration, and as more-and-more motorists fit this tyre we will receive more feedback on its undeniable quality, efficiency and performance.”

Aimed primarily at compact and family cars, crossover vehicles and small SUVs, the core characteristics of the GitiSynergyH2 are listed as safety without worry, energy efficiency and precise control.

The tyre was designed and engineered at Giti Tire’s European Research & Development Centre in Hannover, with testing at the company’s MIRA facility in the UK as well as key locations in Germany and Spain.

It is the first European tyre which utilises the AdvanZtech technology platform, the manufacturer’s globally-integrated, company-wide R&D system which boosts the sharing and utilisation of specialised and advanced technology to create tyres which enhance the overall driving experience.

The results were a completely new developed tread compound that delivers a 7% improvement in wet braking, a 5% enhancement in dry handling and a 3% increase in dry braking over the previous generation pattern.

Additionally a new tread pattern layout provides precise and stable handling behaviour and a 4% improvement in aquaplaning resistance.

The mileage potential, dependent upon driving characteristics, could be improved by almost 20% while the new lightweight carcass delivers low rolling resistance which improves fuel efficiency.
