Giti Tire Scores OE Fitment on 2018 VW Tiguan

Giti Tire (USA), Ltd. announced the company will supply H speed-rated original equipment tires, the GitiComfort XA1 in size 215/65R17, for the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan SUV.

Giti Tire (USA), Ltd. announced the company will supply H speed-rated original equipment tires, the GitiComfort XA1 in size 215/65R17, for the 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan SUV produced at the Volkswagen plant in Puebla, Mexico. The vehicle is a turbocharged 2.0-liter TSI I-4 that features an eight-speed automatic and all-wheel-drive system with four driving modes for various terrain.

“Gaining an OE fitment with such a prestigious automaker is an important step forward for the Giti brand in North America,” said David Dobradenka, senior manager, OE North America, for Giti Tire (USA), Ltd. “We are thrilled that such a high-profile model for Volkswagen will be riding on Giti tires.”

The GitiComfort XA1 is Giti’s new premium all-season tire specifically designed for today’s crossover vehicles. With a focus on ride comfort, low noise and crisp handling, it features Giti’s unique “binary resin traction system” for outstanding performance in both snow and wet conditions.

Giti Tire (pronounced “G-T” tire) began producing passenger and light truck tires in the U.S. last year with the opening of the company’s 1.8-million-square-foot plant in Chester County, South Carolina. The plant will produce five million passenger and light truck tires annually for the replacement and original equipment tire markets when at full capacity. The U.S. division of the Singapore-headquartered company is based in Rancho Cucamonga, California. Brands include Giti, GT Radial, Primewell, and Dextero. For more information, visit www.gitiusa.com.
