Giti Tire has confirmed its first European original equipment homologation fitment for its Giti brand with the Volkswagen Group. The GitiSynergyE1, in size 185/70 R14 88H, will be factory fitted to SEAT Ibiza (above) models produced in Martorell, Spain.

The GitiSynergyE1 is made from a new eco high performance compound and ultra-curve profile. Engineered in Germany, all track tests were undertaken at the company’s facility at MIRA in the UK, IDIADA in Spain, and ATP in Germany, with thousands of miles also covered on roads around the continent to fine tune the tire’s performance.

Stefan Fischer, MD of product technology and the R&D Centre Europe, said, “We are proud of our first OE fitment in Europe with the Volkswagen Group. This underlines our ambitions in the OE market and the excellent work of the European R&D Centre.”
