Performance Tires

Better Selection, Service & Value

If you’ve got a sedan, minivan, SUV or crossover, there are so many choices for tires out there that it can be downright confusing. Some drivers want a little more out of their vehicles, though, and for spirited driving styles, performance tires can be a great fit. At the Tire Terminal, we offer a selection of performance tires, and are more than happy to help you pick out the right performance tire for your budget.

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

The Right Time of Tear for Performance Tires

If 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.

Check Your Performance Tire Warranty

It’s also important to remember that the softer, stickier tires will wear faster, compared to touring tires. You can expect as much as 20,000 fewer kilometres from performance tires – some don’t even offer a treadwear warranty at all.

The business is huge, very professional people and they follow guidelines indeed I can see. The best thing is that you can watch your car on camera while they work on it so I felt comfortable all the time. My rim is very sensetive and it came out without any scratch. I patched my tire today. They are the cheapest among all other tire shops. Thank you Adam for letting me know about the touchless machine and for management. I will recommend this place to anyone who needs tire job on his wheels.

Robert Speck

Excellent place, very fast communication. Had the tires I was looking for at an amazing price. Answered phone instantly, ordered them for next day. They texted me when the tires were ready – came over, had them installed in less than 45 minutes and was on my way. Even helped me load old tires that I needed into bags. Honestly couldn’t be simpler, it is a tire shop that sells tires and does it well. Will recommend to everyone I know.
