What You Need To Know About Performance Tires

Performance tires are designed to get a car around the corners quicker, with truly phenomenal grip. The key to that kind of cornering ability is in the tread compound – performance tires use a softer, “stickier” tread formulation that offers traction properties that all-season tires can’t begin to match. Along with better traction, you’ll see improvements such as:
  • Better braking performance
  • Better steering response
  • Better interaction with modern traction control, vehicle stability, and ABS systems
  • Higher speed ratings
  • Great performance on wet pavement
Performance Tires in Mississauga, ONIf you’re considering performance tires for your car, minivan, SUV or crossover, here’s one important caveat to bear in mind. The softer tread compounds of performance tires are derived from racing tires and deliver excellent traction, but they also tend to harden and stiffen up at lower temperatures. Like their close counterparts “summer tires,” performance tires shouldn’t be used when temperatures are below 40 degrees F, or 4-5 degrees Celsius. Lower temperatures drastically reduce their traction and effectiveness.
It’s also important to remember that the softer, stickier tires will wear faster, compared to touring tires. Expect as much as 20,000 fewer miles from performance tires – some don’t even offer a treadwear warranty at all.
