High performance tires are becoming more popular for a number of reasons. Here are just a couple of the advantages of high performance tires:
High performance tires have improved traction and handling. They grip to the road better than standard tires, and this improves your braking distances and handling abilities.
High performance tires are less likely to overheat, which is a major cause of tire failure.
High performance tires offer a smoother, safer ride at higher speeds than standard tires, but they are often more expensive and (depending on circumstances) may not offer as much longevity as a lower speed-rated tire. Typically, they are purchased by those who like an aggressive drive or have a vehicle that recommends performance tires. High performance tires are offered in a variety of tire treads — some are specialized for wet pavement while others are designed to be driven in any weather conditions.
