The Garit KX is an H-rated, unidirectional winter performance tire for luxury sedans and sports cars. It is designed with Microbit Technology to provide improved snow and superb ice performance.

  • High Silica Compound - Enhances wet grip and braking, while maintaining traction in low temperatures.
  • Microbit Technology In Compound - Walnut shell microbits dig and bite into the ice surface for improved ice traction.
  • Saw Toothed Blocks - Cut through thin water layer on ice for better performance.
  • High Density Wavy Sipes - Increase snow traction.
  • Longitudinal Sipes At Shoulder Blocks - Improve snow and ice traction during cornering.
  • Five Circumferential Grooves - Help prevent side slip.

Ran these tires on my car for one winter (brand new) had decent traction on ice but they lacked grip on snow. I drive on back roads on a daily basis and I didn't feel too confident with these tires. I ended up selling the set the same winter for Pirelli Winter Carving Edge. (I gave them a 5/5 for treadwear because I didn't run them for too long to see how they'd actually wear out)

I have these tires on my BMW 328 and they are quite nice, I really cant complain about anything except the noise. Especially on dry pavement, they are extremely noisy tires. But otherwise I am quite happy with them.
