Why Choose GT Radial Tires?

  • Supplier of the year award winner in 2005, 2006, 2007, and 2009
  • Supplier Quality Excellence Award winner in 2012
  • Original equipment supplier to General Motors

GT Radial

TIRECRAFT’s range of GT Radial tires includes all season tires, winter tires, SUV and light truck tires, and performance tires. GT Radial has been designing tires since 1993, and even though they are a relatively new manufacturer, they’re already leaders in research and development. Their family of tires covers a wide range of vehicle and driver needs. They produce tires for passenger cars, SUVs, CUVs, pickup trucks, vans, light truck, commercial heavy trucks, and buses.

You might already be familiar with GT Radial tires as they’re an original equipment supplier to General Motors. As an indication of their quality, they were the winning supplier of the year in 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009 and took the Supplier Quality Excellence Award in 2012.

All new tires must pass rigorous testing prior to being added to the GT Radial line up. Testing includes computer simulation and indoor testing. After this, tires are then taken to one of the four international proving grounds in Taiwan, China, United Kingdom, and Finland to be driven in real world conditions.


GT Radial Tires — All Season

The Maxtour line has been a long outstanding performer offering a smooth quiet ride, long mileage, and all-season handling.

GT Radial Tires — Winter

The winter line up is lead by the Champiro Ice Pro (also made for SUVs) giving drivers control and manoeuvrability in any weather. This range includes options for speeds of Q, T, and H, for drivers who want to keep pushing their vehicle to its limits regardless of season.

GT Radial Tires — Light Truck/SUV

The range of tires for trucks and SUVs includes Adventuro, Savero, and Champiro. Each of these options gives drivers great traction and are long-lasting with treads that will satisfy any driver’s performance needs from highway to off road.

GT Radial Tires — Performance

The Champiro series of performance tires includes many models offering drivers numerous all-season options that don’t compromise on stability or handling. Tires in the Champiro series are available in speed ratings W, Y, H and V.

GITI, the parent company of GT Radial, and has been providing race tires in the Asian market for many years. From road tracks to off road endurance races, their involvement in international races includes the Mercedes Benz C Coupe Touring Championship, the Pikes Peak race in the USA, the Australian Pro Drift Tour, France’s European Drift Series, and IDS Pro in Germany. Everything learned on the track about tire performance influences new models with the technology being incorporated into the models we drive today.

    Professional although not the friendliest service. Don't provide tire storage which is a bit unbelievable these days. Lots of people live in small places and cannot store their summer/winter tires in their own home.

    i went there for a very annoying air leak. they took me in as scheduled and never gave me a hassle. it was one of the best customer service i got. i wish other TireCraft Dealers can learn from them. Black Dog, next time i’d need a set of tires, i know where to go!

    They lost my special key to access and change tires the first time I brought my car in to switch to my winter tires, also torqued them way way too tight to the point where the Volkswagen dealership needed to break them in order to get them off. Might be cheap but you're getting cheap and unprofessional work done here. Steer clear at all costs.

    Justin's the man. I told him I was interested in snow tires and rims. I gave him my details and he took care of the rest. Within a few days I had a slew of options and price points in my sms. They've since been installed and I'm really satisfied with their performance. Highly recommended.

    I was heading home to Montreal and got a flat tire on the 401. I made it to three garages and they were all too busy. Black Dog Tire Craft were busy as well, but were still able to take care of me. Understanding my urgency and predicament, they had me out in 30 minutes. As an owner of 2 service industry businesses, I can tell you that these guys have the right attitude and know how to take care of their customers and adapt a to special circumstances. Thank you again so much... Ian Parris, President Centre de Santé 2bfit

    Service was great and fast. I bought new snow rims and tires and had them installed. The whole thing only took 45 minutes from the time I drove in to the time I drove out. Also the price I was quoted on the phone was the price I was charged, no surprises.

    Not only were the tires I purchased exceptionally cheaper ($500 cheaper!) here, but the service was also exceptional. I went in needing to have 1 tire put on the rim, so that I was able to drive to black dog and have them change the other 3. They had no problems doing that, and were super awesome! They even gave me a $70 mail in rebate. Thanks so much!
