High-performance tyres are fast becoming a popular pick for all car owners as more people every day are choosing performance tyres over budget or mid-ranged tyre options. Although all tyres have their pros and cons, the several advantages of high-performance tyres are rapidly making them ‘the chosen ones’ for every driver.
High-performance tyres are specially designed to provide you with greater traction and performance in wet and dry conditions. In comparison with budget or mid-ranged tyres, not only do high-performance tyres perform better but they also last much longer. Although these are generally suitable for a range of different cars, it is still imperative that you check if the tyres are suitable for your car in particular.
A car’s tyres have a great impact on the overall performance of the car. The better the performance of the tyres, the greater the difference you will observe from behind the wheel. Using high-performance tyres can help your car perform even if the conditions are not ideal as they significantly improve the car’s handling, braking, responsiveness, and steering and also provide greater grip.
Apart from their ability to perform exceptionally during braking and cornering, high-performance tyres also help you drive at high speeds. When you heavily accelerate from a total standstill trying to go fast in a straight line and your tyres start spinning, it could mean they are not up to mark and may need an upgrade. What you really want your tyres to do is to grip onto the road and push your car forward with minimum and preferably no wheel spin.
High-performance tyres also generally have a higher speed rating. This means they can run at higher speeds for a longer duration compared to regular tyres. An important thing that you should keep in mind when shopping for high-performance tyres is that although high-performance tyres usually cost more, they certainly are worth the price.
There are a number of options, including big tyre brands like Bridgestone, Continental, Michelin, etc, to choose from when it comes to buying high-performance tyres. Most of these tyres are run-flat and they all have their speed rating along with the load rating, tyre size, wet-grip rating, speed, and pressure, on the tyre sidewalls.
